Yep, we were denied for the adoption. I still hadn't heard anything from the shelter by lunch so I sent the contact lady an email asking about the status. She called me back. Said we were denied because I don't have my dogs on heart worm preventative. Apparently, as she put it, that's a "deal breaker." She also made a reference about not having a fence. Which I wrote on the application that I HAD a yard fence. It even asked for details regarding the fence so I put it was a pipe top rail with welded cow panels. I'm guessing the city people didn't have a clue what I was talking about. I didn't bother to correct her. It was a lost cause at that point. Their minds were made up because of the heart worm medication. So Chance won't be coming to the Crazy M.
I called the husband to tell him. He asked if I wanted him to "give them a call." He wanted to tell them what he thought. I figured it best that he not. Wouldn't help anyways. They have their ways. Just like when he went to volunteer. They wouldn't allow his guys to walk the dogs because they hadn't went thru "their" dog walking class. Wouldn't even let them move them from one pen area to the other cause they weren't trained.
I told the husband the only reason I tried was for Chance. There was no other reason I would have dealt with these people. Especially signing over that they can come to my house, check my vet records and everything else intrusive they wanted to do AFTER we adopted him. But I was willing to do it if it meant giving the dog a good home. Fingers crossed that he eventually does find one.
The husband said if I wanted another dog, he would make sure I got one. Isn't he the sweetest. That's when I told him I already found a sweet girl at the Humane Society. ;o) He just laughed and said how did I not know that was coming!
So I actually went to the local Humane Society after work today (yep, I managed to walk the isles without opening all the gates). I saw a cute girl on their website. Thought I'd go by and check her out. Got there and guess what, she's not there. She's helping the local college with their vet tech classes until NOVEMBER! So we'll wait and see. Maybe she'll be my birthday present!
