SLR pencil announcement

From the President (Marty Morgan) and Vice President (Leigh Ann Manfre-Stone) of SLR. 
We wanted to reach out to everyone during these unprecedented times to provide some general information regarding the way that our rescue will operate and how we will handle things during this Covid-19 virus pandemic. 

Home Visits:
For now, all home visits have been suspended.   Due to the vast area our rescue covers it makes it extremely difficult to proceed as normal due to differing shelter in place orders that range from city to county to state. So for now it is just better to stay in place. 

Intake of Schnauzers:
For now, we will continue to take schnauzers into the rescue with some very strict precautionary measures in place.   
We will continue our normal screening/adoption process of vet checks and interviewing applicants to see what the best possible match will be.   We will continue to foster, provide love, shelter and medical care for as many schnauzers as possible until they are adopted. 

Adoptions:
As far as adoptions, these will be handled on a case by case basis. The susceptibility of the foster home, as well as, the adopter must be taken into consideration. Many of our foster homes and or adopters may have underlying health issues or they may not feel comfortable leaving their house for an adoption. We have to respect our foster homes, our Home Visit volunteers and our adopters at this time while also respecting the boundaries this virus has placed upon us.   We need to understand adoptions will be slower therefore possibly tying up foster homes for longer periods of time. We will do the absolute best that we can during this strenuous time. 

Overall:
We will all take this task on together. We have an incredible rescue with incredible members, supporters and followers. We are counting on all of us to pull together at this time and as we always say:   “Do what is best for the Schnauzers”

Marty and I will continue to monitor things closely.  We will talk often and keep updated announcements as anything changes.  I am personally on the front line of this battle in the ER and Marty and I will always try and do our best to keep Schnauzer Love Rescue, Inc. the best it can be. 

Thank you all and please stay safe - we are keeping you and your family close in our thoughts and prayers during these next few months as we continue to learn the best way to deal with this situation.

Thinking of adopting a rescue Schnauzer?

Please give some thought to the commitment you are about to make.

  • Many rescues come to us from difficult situations that involve rehabilitating them to one degree or another.  Some have housebreaking or marking issues, others need socialization and ALL of them need a period of adaptation after going to their forever homes.

  • If you are expecting a perfect dog when adopting a rescue, you're at the wrong place.  All these rescues can become wonderful companions.  It depends on how much time YOU are willing to spend with them.  Obedience or agility classes are always a great way to bond with your new companion.

  • Many rescues going to a new home will have accidents initially.  Having been uprooted at least twice, they will be nervous, - the same way you would be if someone placed you in a totally strange environment.  It's a time of transition for them and it is often frightening, even though you may have much love to offer.  They will need some understanding and time to adjust to their new homes.

PLEASE ALSO REMEMBER...

Schnauzer Love Rescue is an organization of volunteers, most of whom have full time jobs in addition to doing rescue work.  They dedicate a great amount of personal time to ensure these rescues get the second chance they deserve.

All dogs coming into our rescue program have been brought up to date on their shots, checked for worms, tested for heart worms, and are spayed or neutered before we release them to their forever homes.  This is done at considerable expense to our organization. The adoption fees quite often don't cover all the vetting fees, especially when there are additional procedures we feel are necessary to restore the dog's health.

Our rescues are always fostered for a period of time to determine their temperament.  This helps us ensure we find a suitable home that will result in a forever match.  This takes time.  We also do a Home Visit with the adopting family to ensure a good match, and to ensure the safety of our pets in their new homes. This also takes time.

Please be patient so we can find the right Schnauzer for you.
