Be slow, and be safe. Its hard work, don’t think anything else. But its also very rewarding when all works out for both people and animal. Now what’s really important, is understanding what safety is. I could be in a kennel where my co-worker just got snapped at and be perfectly safe. Whereas in another instance, I could be being unsafe by holding out my hand for a dog to sniff whose on the confining side of a chain link fence. You have to learn to read the dog. And that takes time and patience. Safety is reading the dog, and accurately interpreting its signals, and responding to them. There’s a certain passiveness that you must maintain while you do so however.
When you choose a pet from an animal shelter, be prepared to go through an interview and application process. The organization wants to know these pets will be well cared for the long term. You will probably be asked about other pets you may have, the age of your children, the size of your yard. This is to help match the pet with the right owner. Adoption fees vary by each shelter, but you can expect to pay $100-$250 for a rescued animal. These groups do not make a profit. These fees cover the cost of the animal while it was in the care of the animal shelter. This adoption fee usually covers vaccinations, medical exams, spaying, and neutering.
