Adoption Applications on Hold for the Holidays
Dear future adopter:
Thank you so much for your continuing patience to adopt one of our beautiful Goldens. We realize that you would like a new four-legged family member sooner rather than later; however, from now until the New Year we are going to temporarily stop the adoption process. We would like you to understand why...and here are the reasons.
First, it is very important for a newly adopted Golden to join his/her forever family when things are at their most 'normal'. The Christmas holidays are anything but 'normal' in most households ~ it's a hectic time of year with more of everything ~ more travelling, more time away from home shopping and visiting, more guests, more food...and this can be very stressful for your new Golden family member.
Second, our dedicated volunteers are also busy with their families and need a well-deserved break during the holidays. Adoption applications are closed at this time and will reopen some time in the new year.
Many of the millions of homeless pets in North America are pets that were returned or abandoned as a result of an 'impulse' buy. We know this doesn't apply to you; however, many pets are bought impulsively for Christmas so we support 'no pet buying' at Christmas.
In the meantime, all the Goldens in our program are happily spending Christmas with their wonderful foster families...so all are safe and sound...and happy (so worry not)! They're even probably sharing in the spoils of leftover turkey.
We at SEVA GRREAT would like to thank you for being rescue-minded, and wish you and your family a very happy holiday season!
