Is it a private transaction or a rescue....?
Unless the rescue has a proven, public, track record, becareful that you're not inadvertantly supporting a mill.... There are mills that have people that place dogs on places like petfinder....call them rescued dogs...then collect the money...

try not to be disappointed if they tell you they can't help you. many rescues have policies in place that require a home visit and they just don't have the resources to send someone 3 hours away to conduct the visit.

to answer the actual question - most rescues are staffed 100% by volunteers. so, don't get too anxious if you don't hear from them immediately. the usual turn around time is a day or two. if you are going in to a weekend, expect it to be longer.

Hi, Chance

Hi, Chance

So very glad to hear you submitted an application on Samantha.

I would say the response time varies from rescue to rescue.

I remember I was a real nag when we adopted our Smooch from Golden Ret. Rescue. I would also put in a call to them and send an email to inquire!!

There are Golden Ret. Members here that live in Indiana. I don't know if any live close to Columbus, Indiana.
I have a friend Joanne who lives in Indy,about 48 mins from CARE.

Please keep us posted!!!

HERE IS SAMANTHA:

I've never gotten one from a rescue, but I understand it can take a while.
Good luck!

It depends on the rescue and the number of volunteers they have working. Maybe you can contact them to see when and what adoption events Samantha will be at. She is gorgeous. Toward the end of page on samantha it shows where she might be.
