Choosing a rescue? Here are some valuable tips.Go with a local rescue organization with a sound reputation. Fill out an application immediately with every rescue in a particular radius.Investigate the breeds first to find which works best. High-energy dogs will need active owners, for instance, while older dogs won't.Ask questions about the animal and the rescue's adoption process and policies. This will avoid issues or misunderstandings.

Consider fostering before committing. Pets are just like us: There are more expenses than just food -- monthly medications and preventives, yearly vet visits, the cost of illness.

Be patient. The application process can take time. Don't let it discourage you.

Two million dogs are euthanized each year. Through pet rescue, countless families, couples and singles end up with a joy that they can hardly describe.
