Hi Jim and Sandy. Like your input from the shelter. It is making you sad and you would like to take home all of them.
But - if it comes to reality- it is not so easy to adopt a pet. I don't know if Peter talked about our experience to get another dog after our dear Boomer died. They did not accept people who live permanently in a motorhome. The rules ask for a permanent address, a fenced yard and that they can come to check out your household to see if the dog fits in. I went and asked several shelters. Same thing. They were terribly sorry - but the rules....We were really p.... off. Even the ones that had advertisement saying:" Help me - my time is running out!" (means on death row). We didn't get a dog their either. You see, I am still angry!

Well, that just put my back up to think that those of us who live in RV’s couldn’t provide a good home for a pet. So I immediately shot off an e-mail to Best Friends asking them if I could still adopt an animal if I lived full-time in an RV. The following is their reply:
Yes you would it would depend on the animals needs to find the right fit, but we have lots of homes that RV and have adopted. Just fill out an application when you are ready. Thanks! Kristi

That response makes me feel a whole lot better. So don’t give up. There are so many special friends out there waiting for a forever home. Thanks Bea for bringing this up.
