I've been volunteering at the Alaska Dog and Puppy Rescue for about a month now. I always come back with a story after each visit. Well, today's story tops all others so far. Adoptions are each Saturday at both PETCO in Anchorage and rescue outside of town. Someone was getting interested in one of the dogs at PETCO and asked how much the adoption fee was. She was told $140.00, which may seem high to some, but all these dogs are fixed and have had their shots etc. Anyway, this person didn't have enough money and asked if they would hold the dog while she went and pawned something to make up the rest of the money. They said they couldn't and called us just in case she should try again at the rescue. She could have been the nicest lady, but how did she expect to be able to care for a dog if she was going to have to sell something to be able to get one??
