to me

I had an idea this weekend and wanted to get C4NKC’s thoughts on it.  We are finding that many of the returned dogs lately are sponsored dogs.  I am wondering if there is a way to contractually obligate the person who uses sponsorship to at the very least reimburse the sponsorship.  If not, it is wasted money, life-saving opportunity, and a donation made in vain. A woman on Friday tried to surrender the attached pup she got with sponsorship in November.  She has given me until Monday to find a home, unless she slipped her in yesterday before or after I was there. Just in case you have any leads on anyone who might have wanted her before.

I haven’t spoken to Gene about this as I wanted to brainstorm the idea first.  Let me know any thoughts you may have.

Thanks -

Lindsey Smith
