Of course, there are a lot of things to be taken into consideration. One of the top-pulling rescues, Remember Me Ranch, has been "banned" from pulling dogs. Current MADACC management also makes it incredibly difficult for rescues and shelters to pull dogs. There is a serious lack of communication. They also make it difficult for BRATS, the all volunteer transport service, to facilitate the transfer. Plus, many of the dogs leaving MADACC are sick because of poor sanitation and veterinary practices. This makes shelters and rescues reluctant to "pull" because it can be very expensive to rehabilitate sick or injured dogs. There is also the risk of disease transmission to the rest of their shelter's animals.
Transparency is the key to making changes for our companion animals. We must know what the problem is if we are going to try to solve it.
