With the ever increasing numbers of unwanted and abandoned dogs finding their way to rescue organisations how can you be sure that these organisations are taking into account both the welfare of the dogs they are re-homing and the suitability of their new potential owners. There has been an increase of dogs being offered for re-homing using social media websites and though no doubt most of these are being operated by those with their best intentions they may not have the experience, time or resources of well established organisations. Even worse are those who are running rescue centres or sanctuaries to generate income without any regard to the welfare of the dogs they have taken in. One such is this so called Ayrshire Animal Sanctuary as this horrific report illustrates. So make sure that before you consider any dog for re-homing that those offering it are a responsible organisation.
