Adoption agencies want the best for their adoptees - but all they're doing is making it harder for pets to find new homes
an admirably cool-headed and reasonable article about the extraordinarily tight restrictions and adoption interviews that are becoming the norm with many animal rescue agencies and shelters. Both anecdotally and personally, I agree that this is something that has really become a rising problem over the last decade or so.
I too know several people who, for ridiculous reasons, failed their adoption interviews. They came to the agencies looking to give an animal a good home, and were rejected. Obviously the adoption agencies don't know my friends from Adam, and they have to draw the line somewhere.
