    I did, and I managed to adopt 5 in two years....:rolleyes: adding to my two already. Seven is just too many pet dogs IMO and I vowed I would never do it again, 3 is my perfect number, but, if I worked in rescue I just know I'd have more... especially the older ones that nobody wants.

    My husband did threaten to leave, until he realised that it would actually free up more space, so I could bring more pooches home....:D

    Men! They promise you one thing then do another......:rolleyes:

    I limit myself to four dogs, two cat and one parrot at any one time. I know this is the limit of my capabilities to ensure enough time, cuddles, food and vet bills! :thumbup:

    thats the one,that springer is my boy,i`ve worked with him for a long time and have a very strong bond.
    I can`t have him either as i have a dog,but i spend my days off with him.
    I did an agility diplay with him on open day and he won our version of the doggy olympics last month

    Knowing how much I care many people have asked why I dont work in a rescue. But its beacuse I care that I know I couldnt do it..

    All those abandoned or neglected dogs and acts of cruelty would give me a breakdown ..
    So hats off to all those who can and who do..:thumbup: you are :aureola:
    I would love to but it would break my heart so I stick to adopting .. now 3 dogs one parrot..and supporting my local rescue and animal ambulance.

    I volunteer at a RSPCA rescue ad rehoming center. I live in a small flat and have 2 old cats (16) so it would be unfair on them to bring home one of the many dogs and cats I fall in love with. I want a staffy to play with, a greyhound for therapy and a bull mastiff to cuddle. But one day I will pick just one!
    Some dogs spend soooo log in rescue it breaks your heart. Anything small fluffy and cute, rehomed in a couple of weeks.

    My gf volunteers at the Manchester Dogs Home sometimes. They just give her one dog to walk, usually a small one.

    i volunteer at a small rescue with dogs, cats and small animals, its a joke how many things need homes and theres not spaces...as soon as one is gone, another comes in! Ive taken in two bunnies from here which i adore but i already had a zoo before i volunteered there so as much as some just got to me ive had to say goodbye to a lot of animals! the charity really care and their checks are very thorough so i guess its nice to see them go to great families :)

    That is the question i asked myself before fostering dogs for rescue. I worried not to be able to let them go It can be hard to see a foster dog go. But I find it so rewarding that it doesn't matter. I know they have a good life ahead. :)
