Yes, I so do understand the 100% volunteer's! For your question if there is no volunteer in the area how do you pull it? We have other rescue groups that we will contact to see if they will help us out by pulling for us and we start working to find transport to get them to us. We find that most other rescue groups will work great together in helping. Of course if the baby gets adopted before you have time to pull it then that is great news, then you know they at least were saved. I'm sorry to hear that BRAT can't pull every dog that goes into rescue in their area if they have no were to "foster". We too run across this when the kennel we pay boarding fee's on is full and we know there is "no room at the inn" so to speak and all our fosters are full, but we all pray hard and begin hitting our files to see what we can do. There have been times that we have paid other boarding kennels to board our kids if we have no room and no foster homes available. It is NOT cheap and we at times will pay out of our own pocket's to make it work but the dog is out of the kill shelter and when something comes available we move them. We have ran into this in other area's, we are out of AR but get calls from LA,TN,MS and at times farther north to take a dog because other rescue foster homes are full. I must say that is one thing I can say about our director, she has never said no we can't, she will sometimes say.. will you hold them a few days and give us time to work on this and most will. If there is a will there is always a way! I believe this because I have seen it. I can relate to having several at a time in your home as well, at this time I have 9, some have 10 to 12 and we move them to foster's, get them homes or to the kennel when room opens up.
I have nothing against BRAT, I'm sure they feel they are doing their best. But I just want to know, if you have a basenji in your area and will be PTS if not pulled and you have no "foster's" do you let them be put down or do you find somewhere to board them and pull them? There are other options other than the foster home if push comes to shove at saving one. I too am not trying to be argumentive, but since you mentioned there is not much you can do if there is no foster home open,,,
I was wondering what other rescue groups are there in the southeast area that rescue/save basenjis?
