OP Gives Up On Adoption Due To Shelter’s Insane Application Requirements, Redditors Share Themselves In The Same Situations

Adopting a dog from a shelter is more complicated than it seems to be. Sometimes, the shelter wanted the adopter to be vetted beforehand to make sure the dog is going to enter a good home. But, having personal references checked is rather important to help the dog to be adopted by the right person. This process, however, is much more complicated. It often takes time and involves many people.

Have you ever intended to rescue a pet but ended up giving up on it because of an insanely complex application process? Well, this man has. In a post shared on r/dogs, he told how the shelter’s application requirements drove him crazy and impatient. The post has gained 2k upvotes and more than half of a thousand comments. Here is the entire story:

It is true that the application process between different shelters is different. Sometimes, depending on the regulations of the state where the shelter is located, they can be more or less strict in their rules. But a normal adoption, according to Zoetis Pet Care, consists of the following steps.

First and foremost, the application form that includes a straightforward questionnaire or a more in-depth survey. References are also required, and you may need to answer whether your landlord allows pets, or whether you can afford the pet’s bill. Once the shelter considers your application potential, they may ask for a home visit if necessary. Larger dogs need a fenced yard, and senior pets can’t live in a house with stairs. Other requirements about age, valid identification, and family meetings can also be taken into consideration. Most shelters require you to be over 18 to adopt their pets.

Here is how Netizens react to OP’s story. The majority of Redditors sympathize with OP.

Some share the same experience they faced with their pets adoption:
