Full Answer

Many dog and cat breeds have dedicated rescue groups which provide temporary homes, health care and rehabilitation while attempting to place animals. Rescue groups usually work closely with animal shelters. Most rescue groups have no-kill policies which forbid euthanasia of an animal that is healthy and adoptable. Adopting an animal from a rescue group usually involves completing an application, getting a veterinary reference and passing a phone interview and home visit. Adoption fees and any donations go back into the rescue group to meet the costs of rescue.
