Defining “Saved”: How Click-n-Ship Culture Affects Rescue Dogs, Their Families, and Dog Trainers
More people are meeting their pets for the first time in hotel parking lots or airports without meeting them first. Some of these dogs go on to live fantastic lives, yet a large population of these dogs are never truly saved. Some are feral, under-socialized, or not matched appropriately to their new family. This results in a variety of issues ranging from distrust in the rescue system, to legislation against U.S. dog adoptions, to euthanasia. Melissa presents on ‘Click-n-Ship Culture’ and its impact on well-intending individuals rescuing dogs. She also details the frustrations of dog trainers and other professionals after these dogs are acquired. We look at language, partnerships and laws that can really help save these dogs before AND after adoption.
