Thread: A Recue Group enquiry

    Default

    No PM - looks like I'll have to go and find the book and read the directions that tell me how to do it !!!!!!

    I would suggest to you ChoppaChop - the 3 tap test - ask the same question 3 times - while you tap - 1 head, 2 heart, and finally 3 tummy. Generally you will find your answer pretty quick smart - and it is usually the tummy one that gives you the best and quickest answer.

    Also if you want to waste some more of your time on the FB page, you will see very clearly what they are all about. If you are feeling frustrated now - then what is it going to be like in the future ?

    There are many many legitimate rescue groups about that require help and if that is what you want to do, I would be looking their way.

    Need any suggestions - do not hesitate to ask.

    Thanks Riley

    I'm thinking I do indeed already have my answer and will try another avenue for the 2 sweets I put my hand up for ( 2 that I had also had permanent carers arranged for) In deed I wasn't going to put my hand up at all with my own situation as it is but these 2 caught my attention and emotion straight away.... cannot even put my finger on why.....

    We are a rescue group but are breed specific. Although I'd try to never say no to any breed in dire need I really do try to stick to the bull breeds. I also like to put any dog that is without doubt going to come under ranger scrutiny as a restricted breed through a volantary NOI/BA and TT. Then I know with certainty that innocent new owners will not have to deal with the ordeal of BSL. One of the dogs in question with this other 'group' ( loosely used) is one such dog.

    I have only just got home from a long day at work at the boarding kennels then our kennels so have yet to check emails etc....will go see if anything has yet transpired but wont hold my breath.

    Does ChoppaChop have PMs turned off? Maybe you could dog forum friend each other and allow PMs from friends/ dog forum contacts?

    settings > general settings
    I think.

    Mine are definately on Hya, I have been receiving others ?

    I'm just really saddened and frustrated at this whole ordeal.
    I am now unable to even comment under either my own username or the Rescue Groups name on their pages so cannot even reach them that way in the hope one of them will respond to me. It seems if you are a strong minded,legit person/group who ask for things to be put in writing so one knows exactly whats going on.....you are un-needed.

    I feel very much saddened for the 2 dogs in question as it was confirmede tonight they had potential forever homes lined up ( I just wanted to hold for proper assesment for a week ) and even for the little male Staffy boy "Popeye" , I normaly wont take a male because of my lad but because of current situation it would be quite viable to do so. I cannot however reach anyone to offer him a spot.

    I shall see what can be done in the morning.

    Stay away from that group - they are nothing but trouble and are giving genuine ethical rescues a bad name

    They wont respond to any questions on their page unless its donations or offering to rescue, which is very frustrating. They freely admit they are "facilitators" not rescues and I know of several situations where dogs have ended up in other pounds. They dont quarantine and I have heard of sick animals put onto transport as soon as they are out of the pound. They collect an awful lot of money - which they say goes on needy dogs but I have also heard of them collecting money for dogs that have gone to other rescues - without passing on the money to the rescue that took the dog

    I wouldn't get involved with them, Kuri. If I were you, I would start by hiding their FB status updates. Until you do that, you won't be able to sleep soundly at night. But believe me, there are lots of worthy candidates for rescue that are rescued by more ethical groups and who would most likely be happy to have you as a foster carer. Or at least bother to communicate with you. You may not be able to save this one, but there are other ways to save lives and they are all equally valid.

    Well since i have gotten my own place & i just have molly & the cats ive wanted to look into becoming a foster carer. I by no means have added, or liked their facebook page so i dont get status updates from
    Their page.. just decided to look on there and found this beautiful rottie. After i posted this msg i got a text saying the owners have reclaimed her - which is great, but im hoping its true.. Considering the text i previously got...

    Kuri, there is also ARQ (animal rescue qld)
    and Fresh Start Rescue
    maybe Animal Angels they seem to be SEQ based.
    I am sure I saw a lovely Rotti on one of these last night,
    (not sure if foster needed or just up for adoption)
    I like the ones that just concentrate on getting dogs into homes
    unlike others who play the PTS/urgent/need donations card every day.

    I doubt they would lie about that? But who knows.

    If you are serious about becoming a foster carer, I would contact a reputable rescue org first, do the meet and greet, get them to check out your place if necessary and have a chat about which types of dogs you'd be willing and able to foster. I think it is very important to have a good relationship with the coordinators. You will need their support and be able to communicate well with them. They are the people on the frontline and do all the initial temp testing, organise desexing and vaccinations etc. You need to be able to trust them completely.

    Have a look at the list on petrescue.com and do some research into the ones you're interested in.
