Well so far yet again a no show from Heidis potential adoptee & no phone call either. Crying or Very sad
I have said to Val if by tonight there is nothing then the adoption will not take place. Jaguar has waited in all day when she could have gone out for a few hours. It really is not fair on both the dogs & especially the foster carers to have their time wasted.

Some cameras you can't change the date, I have one and wrote to the maker asking if it could be changed, they said no, so some of my earlier photos have 2002 on them. There is not a date instruction in the book.

As far as I know not even a phone call. Sorry but poor Val rarely gets out & today she could have done just that as the nurse was not visiting her.

I know especially when Marie was logged on at 18.16 tonight but no post? Sadly a pm would have also been nice.

I am getting a bit annoyed with these people now! This has happened several times recently. Not only are they letting the Foster carer down, letting the dog down but also stopping other potential adoptee's from giving forever homes by some weeks potentially.

It seems to me that there are so many lies and half truths!

Perhaps you should charge a refundable deposit of maybe £50.00? This could be refunded if the potential adopter turns up and either party felt it wasn't going to work or taken off the adoption fee if all went well.

If the adopter didn't turn up after it was explained that they had been RESERVED and didn't ever do so then the deposit would not be refunded. This of course would not stop people who were seriously interested in adopting a particular dog but would hopefully stop those who are time wasters and don't actually care, don't want to adopt but only like the idea of doing so.

Just a thought!

Rubina your thoughts are the same as what I have had recently.
Sadly the very same thing has also happened to poor Lou Lou & Bruiser (now called Bruce as it is better). His potential adoptee has now been left a total of 12 voice mails at different times & had 5 emails also sent yet not even a quick message saying no longer wanting them.
What people do not realise is I actually pay costs for people to home check if they are no volunteers on here. If I go to a volunteer site & ask it costs the rescue money for this as fuel is not cheap at present. So whilst some moan at the £175 I have possibly already spent anything up to £20 in fuel. Foster carers are all wonderful volunteers that really do put themselves out for the rescue & this is how they are treated. Val I am so sorry. Group Hug

and i'm sure genuine people would be happy to do that, but some have mouned about
the adoption fee ,and what do people get out of mucking the rescue about.BUT......im going to be
kind now and say that Marie might have a good reason for not turning up at Vals and maybe there
is a reason she cant contact Val or Sue.Maybe they will never know,and the good thing is Heidi
wont know she has been let down and shes still with Val who loves her.

My OH has suggested a deposit that is refundable if it doesn't work out after home check and visit for sensible reasons as we all know, some dogs just don't get along, or they can take a dislike to you for some reason or other.

I don't think some people realise that Home Checkers, Foster carers and everybody else involved in finding these little ones perfect homes does it voluntarily, unpaid and gives up their free time especially to accommodate potential adoptees visiting, therefore it isn't unreasonable to expect a bit of courtesy and every day good manners in keeping them informed about circumstances that prevent meetings or visits happening for whatever reason, they do have to have a life of their own as well. Poor Sue runs around like a chicken that's lost it's head, Gail, Helen, Val and lots of other people work really hard doing things 'behind the scenes' to keep the Rescue running smoothly. Most of us appreciate it immensely, others seem to think it's some kind of hobby.

It's an important decision to make, to adopt a dog from a Rescue, they have already moved home at least once, the day of your visit isn't the time to change your mind that it's not something you want to do, for goodness sake think long and hard before you even put the paperwork in, there's no rush, for every dog you see adopted there are so many more on their way. Make sure the timing is right, that it's the right dog for you and your circumstances, read the thread that the Foster Carer has written, then make an informed decision and only apply if it is the right dog for you and your are right for the dog.

to you all Val, I know it's horrible waiting for potential adoptees to turn up, even worse that you've done it twice now for Heidi. Bless her. Hope her special home comes soon

I've rambled on now, sorry . You can delete all this or move it or something if you like, but it's made me angry Evil or Very Mad

Absolutely agree, Lucylee -there may well be a very good reason Marie has been out of contact. Stuff happens to all of us unexpectedly and we need to be sympathetic and understanding of this! Hopefully, Marie will be back in touch. I made my comments because this has happenned several times recently.

I do though think that asking a refundable Reserve Fee is a good idea but think another thread on this and not clogging up Heidi's thread to be a good idea!

[/quote]

Why delete scratch it is exactly what I was trying to say but a lot more diplomatic.
If anyone has taken offence then I will NOT aplogise. It is not a HOBBY as some appear to feel it is. Sometimes I wish it was. You know the model kit that you start & then get bored with & move on then to a different model etc, wow that would be great, but sadly it is not a HOBBY I am responsible for 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, etc dogs at any one time, wondering if I can provide for them all, pay all the vet bills as well as making sure that all our sponsor dogs (yes they are the ones that need constant meds etc) are again provided for. I cannot just switch off my computer & go to bed & sleep, I switch it off after possibly 18hrs of being up, transfering money, emailing Gail about who we have coming in, where they can go, what they need etc. Then poor Helen & Val get me on the phone about where we need more foster carers & what we need to raise etc. My daughter actually missed out on so much as I was running the rescue, she would be bundled into the car in the middle of the night as I had a call about a Welsh puppy farm raid (yes I lived in Wales for a long time) & now my Grand Children suffer as Nanny is always too busy or too poor to have them/see them because of the rescue. It takes 1 call to say sorry but I feel maybe I am not able to adopt after all or if you cannot call an email or a text, but please my foster carers are worth so very much to the rescue as many of you would not have your babies now if it was not for the selflessness/generousity/money etc.
Ok I ma now going to get the car boot bits ready, but will say one last thing. At 11.28 tonight I got a call about a litle one & guess what Fraiser & Gordon are off tomorrow to help him. That is dedication.

And i think most members respect and appreciate all the hard work you all do
to help these little ones to find a forever home.I might not always agree with somethings
that are said here but i do know that you are dedicated in your aim to find the right home
for all the dogs that pass thru the rescue,you also see the distressed state some of these
dogs are in and some awful cruelty that most of us could not cope with.This is not the first
time you have been let down ,and it wont be the last ,so onwards and upwards Heidi will find
her forever home ,the ones who let the rescue dogs down are the losers.

I can only agree with everything that has been said, with knobs on!!! Grrrrr. Selfishness, silliness, whatever it is, own up. Be polite, be honest, it costs nothing.

Back to the beautiful Heidi, and the lovely, kindhearted generous family she's with at the moment - what a sweetie pie she is, you're actually a very lucky bunny, Val, you've got her for a bit longer!! (one way to look at it, tee hee) - and you have a wonderful, marvellous, fantastic husband and son there with you too!

Does the gorgeous Heidi need anything - (apart from a reliable adopter, I mean), her cousin by YTTBR wants to know if he can send her a pressie to cheer her up! (I can just imgine what he's thnkin of!! Rolling Eyes )

Love and hugs to everyone, don't forget it takes all sorts to make a world (gggrrrrrr again)

When we adopted Leo (2010) we were asked to pay the homechecker £10 when she came and this was taken off the adoption fee. Of course petrol prices have increased considerably since then! I think the refundable (or non refundable!) deposit is an excellent idea and would prevent time wasters. Hope you can have another free day out Val, well not free moneywise but free of the nurse visit cheers

Possibly...personally I think its partly because the internet is more accessible to everyone. People have laptops, internet on the phones, ipads etc. It seems to be that people are window shopping as opposed to taking adoption seriously? Its disheartening though, especially for the dogs. The people seem genuine, seem nice people, we get them homechecked, it all seems really good....and then Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad
