I have worked closely with a local rescue. I have donated time, fostered and even worked adoptions. I found that the adoption form is 2pages tiny print. Asks things like about declawing etc.. truth be it, those adoptions are completely dependent on those questions. I also noted that I personally have assited on homing 9 cats in the past year.. however, when a gay person applied for adoption, the cats were never adopted out. I had a neighbor who contacted them to adopt a small black kitten... and they never called her back.. When I inquired about why? They felt the neighbor called intoxicated and didn't think this was a positive thing. ( although they adopted to her before.. years ago.)

I am disgruntled and annoyed and declined working with this organization any longer. I just feel that it's just their own barrier that is not allowing adoptions to happen quicker..
