Having a dog rescue center has been a dream of mine, but diving into the pet service industry, I found a way to balance business while fundraising, fostering, raising awareness of rescues & rehoming pups in need of a forever home!
Overseas Adoptions: Every week, rescues in Thailand send animals to adopters around the world with many to the US & Canada, as a rabies shot & cleared health check is all that's required to fly. Adopting out locally is very unreliable as many ex-pat's dump them at the temples after 2yrs or so when their term is over in which then they have no idea how to fend for themselves & often pass due to starvation or being overtaken by dominant street dogs. The dog meat trade is very alive & well also, so getting them to the US is like striking gold AKA safety! I have become very familiar in working with rescues abroad. The 'adoption fee' is solely the cost of flight & crate (great to have at home) in which flight costs are significantly decreased with a flight volunteer which come and go every other month or so. The rescues take care of the rabies shot, vaccinations, spaying/neutering, microchip, & a full health check (they come with all their vet records). They must be 100% healthy to fly unless on prescribed medications by their veterinarian. The rescue sends regular photo & video updates & will even do a Skype date to introduce the pup you're interested in, while getting more acquainted with you, learning about your lifestyle, ensuring it's a perfect fit! I am here to assist during the entire adoption process! I'd be happy to explain the process more in depth if anyone is interested in learning more! Seems daunting, but very doable & SO rewarding! <3
