RESCUE is Hard.......

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

In the last month I have found three different dogs that needed homes and I applied to adopt them. The first two were unsuccessful. Neither dog was young but both were cute. Last week I found and applied for a senior dog whose owner died. I was hopeful but not foolish. I have excellent references, wrote a good narrative on the application and had a couple of emails with the director of the rescue.

Today I had a call and was excited but I am one of seven people who they approved for this elderly sweetheart. She is in Connecticut about two hours away and it isn't practical for me to bring my whole gang down unless it is a go. There is a local person who will have a meet and greet and if that doesn't work then I am next in line. If this girl is as special as represented I can't imagine she won't be happy with number one. I am bummed but dealing. If it is meant to be, it will happen and if not I have three special dogs already.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

Thanks Lise. It is draining and hard to invest and fill out the applications. I have three special ones and if there is to be a 4th, it shouldn't be this hard. TY   Sheila

Your not the only person I've talked to who says rescue is hard.  I have friends who have become emotionally tied to dogs (and cats), that were ultimately given to others.  I haven't had to go through that process in many years.  I keep inheriting animals from my family, when their lives change and can no longer keep them.

I had no idea it was so hard to adopt a pet!  Maybe this explains why they actually ship dogs and cats out of Maui to go to homes on the mainaland.

hi again Georgie. That's sad. I would think there would be people in Maui who want to adopt. TY    Sheila
