What’s With All the Questions?
We can’t tell you how much we appreciate you giving one of our beloved critters a second chance. Here’s the thing: We’re going to ask you a lot of questions. You may feel like you’re getting the third degree. But it’s not about you. You’re probably going to give your new pet the best home ever—but not everyone is as awesome as you are. Really.
See all the animals on our web site? They didn’t appear out of nowhere. Some of them were neglected. Some of them were abused. But most of them just didn’t quite fit in their old homes—at least not well enough to ensure they’d stay there forever.
We want to make sure they find homes that last forever this time. So try to remember: We’re asking because we care, about the pet and about you. We’re trying to make matches that last a lifetime. So if we ask you some personal stuff, just think of the furry tail and the big eyes of the animal you’ve fallen for, and be patient with us!
