Just because there are no dogs (or maybe only one or two dogs) featured here, it does not mean that there are no dogs in our program. While there are fewer than normal dogs in our program since Covid, we do have dogs. However, the demand for dogs has increased dramatically in the past year. Every dog photo we have posted here brings in dozens of new applications, bogging down our volunteers in processing the applications, creating a larger pool of approved adopters for a smaller pool of dogs, and frustrating people who have been waiting to adopt. That’s why the photos are not posted as they have been in the past.
We are still not holding traditional face-to-face adoption events at Petsmart and PetCo stores. We’re working behind-the-scenes to match dogs with prospective adopters, using the information that is provided in our applications (see details on our home page for more information).
As always, our goal at MSRNT is to find the perfect forever home for each dog. At the same time, operating in a time of Covid means that the safety and well-being of our volunteers who foster our dogs and support our rescue and adoption efforts behind-the-scenes is also critical.
Note: Because we have quite a few approved adopters waiting to adopt, at this time we are only working with experienced dog owners, and not accepting applications from families who have not had a dog before.
