Dear Dog Loving Friends,
COVID-19 has surely created unprecedented times. We are here to do our best to help you rescue your new best friend. Our Volunteers like you are in these stressful times trying to keep some sense of normalcy. While we get through these times we hope you will be patient with our Volunteers and understand we are dealing with limited resources including access to our Veterinarians, access to rescued dogs, as well as a significant reduction in our donations.
We are happy to share that so many people are looking to adopt during this time but also sorry to share in many situations a dog or puppy you are applying for may be in the adoption process at the time you apply. Your patience will help in finding your new dog or puppy. Once you are approved then your Adoption Coach will put you on your wait list. The more flexible you are the faster this process will work for you.
With over a 1,000% increase in adoption Inquiries there is just no way we can respond to all the questions. We hope you will review our website and the Q&A page which will help guide you.We want to be transparent in sharing that each puppy will have over 50 people or inquiries requesting to meet them so please understand we are not passing you by but we just don’t have enough dogs and puppies right now to meet the demand.
Labs and More has updated our Adoption Process to Virtual Meets when possible which means you will meet your dogs via facetime. Home meets are conducted with social distancing, sanitizing and the wearing of masks. Please allow additional time for our Volunteers to process and schedule these meets. Thank you for helping us all stay safe.
We look forward to helping you adopt. Once your submit your application within 3-4 days you should hear via email from one of our Volunteers If you do not please reach out to us at email@example.com. You will then get your personal Adoption Coach who will help guide you through the adoption process.
We are doing our best to be transparent to let you know right up front what the expectations will be during this time of adopting so please do not post harsh reviews about our Rescue. We are working overtime but we have a limited supply of puppies and dogs.
Questions and Answers:
Q: Why do puppies on the site have wait lists and why not remove them?
A: These pups are not yet adopted but we have people in line to meet these pups. Until they are adopted we are unable to remove them until we can assign them to their new family in our system. Also the families in line to meet these pups want to be able to view them on the website.
Q: I keep asking to meet particular dogs and no one gets back to me.
A: We can no way keep up with all the inquiries. Please wait until an Adoption Coach contacts you and at that time they can review available dogs with you.
Q: When I meet the dog do, I take him home that day
A: Yes, be prepared to bring home your new dog. Bring a leash, a crate, and a blanket for transportation.
Q: Can I set up meets with multiple litters
A: Unfortunately, during this time the puppies are adopted so quickly that we can only put you on the wait list for one litter at a time.
Q: What are your adoption fees?
A: Please visit our Adoption Donation page where it will show you a range of adoption donations and what in included in your adoption.
Q: Are you still doing adoptions and adoption events?
A: Yes we are still adopting out dogs but we are not holding Adoption Events. As stated in the Adoption Process we are scheduling Virtual Meets as well as home meets adhering to Social Distancing Requirements.
These are hard times for Volunteers working to save dogs while trying to keep the RESCUE Open and Operational. Please please do not post negative reviews about the time it takes to adopt and how we didn’t let you have a dog….we are being very transparent right up front about this process.
Thank you for being kind. Let’s be together in this.
