The Home Visit

Although I am a bit nervous, (the kind of nervous you get with a first date) I'm really looking forward to today's home visit.
The idea is that this is the rescues chance to look over my home, having reviewed my application and references, and meet my family and I as a last vetting. The way I look at it, it's my best opportunity to look into how the organization is run prior to accepting a poochie.
They want a kind, dependable home, with people who will help facilitate adoptions. I want an organization that is well run, supportive, and puts the well being of the dogs first. Whether you're the foster or the rescue, both should know what the expectations are and most importantly review and sign contracts explicitly stating the roles and responsibilities of everyone involved.
