In my Siberian Husky Facebook group, I hear all the time that someone was rejected from adopting a husky from a shelter even when they currently own a husky, and know their stuff when it comes to the breed. Why were they rejected? Most times it's due to the person not having a fenced in yard, or having a young child. My question, and/or thought process is... are shelters right to reject people for those things? Maybe... who am I to judge? In my personal opinion, I think they are too strict in some areas. I understand why they have the stipulations the way they do, but I think it should be directed more towards the person, rather than whether or not they have a fenced in yard. I am owned by 3 Huskies, and I do not have a fenced in yard.
Don't get me wrong, I get it, I really do. Shelters are trying to be careful, and trying to reduce the number of huskies that end up right back in the shelter. BUT... by refusing adoptions for these reasons, are they potentially refusing good homes? The answer is - sometimes yes, and sometimes no. That's what makes this such a hot debate topic.
The Sibe Tribe would love to know:
What are your thoughts on the adoption process?
Are they too strict? Not strict enough?
