Do you think it's too hard to adopt a dog in Massachusetts?


Sometimes I feel like the Animal Shelters here are keeping the pet stores in business. As a dog trainer I've seen at least 10 awesome pet parents get turned away from the shelter empty handed and headed for the pet store in the mall. I have even been turned away. Me! A dog trainer who also worked in a grooming salon, who's lived with dogs her entire life, and who had just recently lost a dog to an autoimmune disease to which I sunk a fortune into to try to fix. Their reasoning... I was pregnant at the time and had a child under 4 with special needs. It's always something.
