There are many reasons why you should consider adopting a rescued schnauzer from a local shelter. These are just a few of the reasons to adopt a rescued schnauzer from a local shelter:
Fortunately, Georgia has a slew of reputable shelters for re-homing these dogs. One such shelter is Animal Ark in Columbus, Georgia. The nonprofit organization rescues dogs from various shelters and rehabilitates them until they are ready for adoption. Animal Ark animals are usually spayed or neutered and have been vaccinated. Even though adoption fees are not always expensive, they can go a long ways in helping abandoned and abused dogs and cats.
The United States Schnauzer Rescue Groups are listed by the World Organization. To find one in your area, you can search the list by state. The World Organization also owns a map with Schnauzer Rescue Groups in all states. Contact these groups for information on adopting a Schnauzer from a shelter in your area. Adopting a Schnauzer at a shelter will save the life of an abandoned dog, and help to preserve its breed.
Schnauzer Rescue Georgia fosters rescued dogs in a loving family environment for at least two weeks before they can be adopted. The foster period allows the new family to get to know the dog and allow them to adopt it. Additionally, all dogs are vetted by a veterinarian who has been approved by SRC. During this time, you can ask questions about the dog’s personality and prepare yourself for adoption.
