I didnt say that anyone said that. Just a point I am trying to make. Obviously they are necessary. And I completely agree that some are run poorly. Just like some breeders run their program poorly as well.I don't see anyone stating that rescues shouldn't exist. Just giving personal opinions on whether they would adopt a shelter/rescue dog. And why.
Unfortunately, there should be more stringent rules and restrictions placed on ALL shelters, IMO, with regards to WHO can adopt, their backgrounds, as well as the employees that are evaluating and handling the animal. But, there isn't enough time in the day, or money.
I get sort of annoyed by people that snub their nose at me because I have broken dogs and they have papers. Any dogs can get papers. That doesn't mean shiz to me. Papers don't make a dog, the dog does.
