>>" I also know of dobermans that cost their owners more than $1000 that were dumped into rescue."

>>I think you mean "surrendered", rescue organizations do not typically deal with "dumped" or abandoned animals.

ROFLMAO!!

I've been involved rescue literally all my life. My mom has been rescuing animals since I was 7, and I've carried on with it ever since leaving home. Trust me, we deal with a LOT of "dumped or abandoned" animals. LOL!!


>>Legally a rescue organization has no authority to collect, hold or deal with unattended stay dogs, they are assumed and considered property until declared abandoned by animal control.

You need to read up on your local animal laws. Most municipalities (all that I have checked, but there could be exceptions) have specific regulations for how to establish legal ownership of strays. For instance, in Knoxville (where I used to live) you must notify animal control that you have the dog, keep the dog for 7 days, then vaccinate it for rabies. Then it's yours. Not terribly difficult!

>>Surrendering a pure breed doberman to a rescue organization that specializes in rescuing dobermans doesn't seem wacky or irresponsible to me. Isn't that your charter?? If I wanted my doberman to go to a doberman lover that is exactly what I would do. It would be worth the $1000 to me to ensure that my dog went to a good home.

Oh, I don't think I said anything about whether that surrender was irresponsible or not. I was simply making the point that people DO get rid of expensive animals on a regular basis.
