I too can vouch for Lost Dog rescue. We adopted our dog Lola from them and it was quick and easy. We showed up to the adoption event prepared with all our paperwork and required documents. But, it can definitely be competitive. We saw Lola’s picutre on their website and knew we wanted her but were surprised by how many others showed up interested in her. Luckily, things worked out for us and we took Lola home that day. I also second Megan’s comment regarding their use of fosters. Lola’s foster was able to tell us all kinds of things to help make Lola’s transition a smooth and easy one.
