Animal shelters do a good job of screening animals before adopting them out to new homes. They also screen potential pet owners. IF you find a pet offered through an animal shelter, you will be asked to sign a contract saying that you agree to care for the pet long term. You will also be asked several questions about your home, your children and other pets you may have. This is not to be noseyit is simply to help match an owner with the right pet. If the animal suffers from a medical condition, such as diabetes, the new owners know this up front before adopting. Having the animals health history at the time of adoption helps the animal find a permanent home.
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.
