Wow. Adopting from rescue seem even harder after reading the experiences on here. I don’t even have Sheltie experience other than my old summer job. One of the rescues’ applications requires me to prove that I paid the pet fee at my apartment which is $400. I haven’t paid it yet. It’s a lot of money down the drain especially since I probably won’t end up with a rescue and expect to move. I’ll check breeders, Craigslist and any ads as people have been suggesting.
