Throughout the United States, more and more people are adopting and rescuing their pets. How pets are adopted varies based on location, the type of pet and other factors, though Lake Wylie Pet Resort in South Carolina is making strides to simplify the process for pet owners.
Tracy Boyle, owner of Lake Wylie Pet Resort, embraces the rising trend and said, “Pet adoption is one of the best things you can do for these animals. Too often, homes and organizations that take in rescues are overcrowded and don’t have the resources to take proper care of these pets.”
Boyle supports a pair of K9 rescue and adoption agencies by providing space for these soon-to-be-adopted dogs. Lake Wylie Pet Resort offers boarding and allows organizations like Lucky Lab Rescue and the Doberman Assistance Network to utilize these rooms for hosting dogs up for adoption.
Lucky Lab Rescue encourages volunteers to temporarily foster dogs, much like Lake Wylie Pet Resort does by providing space. Vicky Brady, a member of the board of directors for the Doberman Assistance Network (DAN), is another resource adoption volunteers use to locate Dobermans in need and find homes for them.
“The goal for any rescue or adoption is to find a safe, loving home for these dogs,” Boyle said. “Fortunately, there are a number of networks and organizations throughout the country that locate animals in need, transport them to temporary shelters or homes, and find loving families to take care of them.”
As mentioned, adopting a shelter animal is a major trend. A column on the Huffington Post, “Why I Would Always Adopt a Shelter Animal,” discusses a number of reasons adoption is the best thing pet owners can do. However, one of the biggest concerns in pet adoption is when a dog is rescued from an unsafe environment. Too often, these animals do not have the vaccines, care or training. This causes placement and health issues over time, leading to a pet rescue stigma.
“There are always people out there who are against rescues and pet adoptions,” Boyle said. “However, there are more caring organizations out there than ever that ensure these animals are healthy and ready to live long, happy lives with families. Lake Wylie Pet Resort is proud to be part of this process.”
