last time I found a stray, SPCA told me it was 2 weeks before I could adopt. Original owner picked up their dog 13 days after I dropped her off

Congrats! But I do find it strange that they readily put the dog up for adoption after a day? They left the "owners" a message, didn't get a quick reply and released the dog. Isn't that too quick. I mean, what if the people are away or has no access to voicemail, etc.

Anyway, have you settled on a name yet?

"spoon" is cute and pays homage to your posts. =D

you guys are a little mistaken, i haven't adopted the dog just yet. i simply filled out an application form today for adoption. there is a fair waiting period involved.

HUGE update:

Long story short, I legally own the dog now!

Since I had found the dog and was taking good care of him, the shelter gave me the option of making a donation instead of paying the standard adoption fee. I asked them how much the adoption fee was and they said $300. I gave them $250 along with purchasing the dog license and a box of raw food

He's 2 years old and will enjoy a long and happy life with his two new brothers. on the ride home, he was pretty much bouncing off the walls. He eventually felt it was a good idea to literally straddle my left arm as I drove and stayed there

Anyways, he's home, he's excited, he's happy and so am I



Details on why I was able to adopt the dog in this time frame for those who may be wondering:

So happy for both of you

I second "Repost" for a name... except the first person who asks you his name, you say it's "R", and then next person you say it's "E", and so on...

I'm really happy for you and the dog but it feels like the SPCA didn't try very hard to get a hold of the original owners..

2 calls within 1 week and they decide to let someone adopt the dog? What if the owners are on vacation...? Kind of shitty for them if they are legitimately unreachable.

I think the shelter assumes that the dog's owners wouldn't have left the dog alone by itself. So they then assume that someone would have been taking care of the dog while its owners were on vacation. So if someone is supposed to be taking care of the dog, why aren't they looking for it when it has gone missing? No calls looking for that type of dog. I assume Spoon put up posters.

There's also the financial consideration of keeping an animal at the shelter I suppose. The faster they can get a stray into a good home, the less of their already-short funds they have to use. Hmm....

I guess there are situations (like my own with a stray I picked up) where the person taking care of the dog didn't/couldn't really look too hard (she was old).

Spoon, was there any talk from the shelter of what would happen if the owners called after you legally adopted the dog? SOL for them?

^ I will refer you to the details in the spoiler. On top of that, take another look at the first photo I took.

1. The dog was months overdue for a grooming. Even if he was only out for a few days, you cannot explain this neglect.
2. No one was out on the streets actively looking for this dog.
3. No one printed posters to put up searching for a missing companion.
4. Everyone we talked to on the street had not seen anyone looking for a missing dog
5. Not a single person called the shelter to report/ask about white, male westie gone missing
6. And the big one, the dog doesn't even respond to the name the previous owner gave him

If the previous owner was on vacation, someone had to be looking after this dog. No one was looking for the little guy.

I actually didn't ask about that part. I can ask tmrw when I have some free time.
