California Woman Unhappy After Dachshund Adoption Denied
Ashley Inglis of Bakersfield, California, saw a dachshund she wanted to adopt last week at the local SPCA shelter, but she was given bad news. "It was being saved for Wednesday," she said. Wednesday also happens to be the day the SPCA holds its annual adoption event.
We're hoping she can bring home her new friend today, but after taking the issue to the local news station, it's anybody's guess. Find out more at Bakersfield Now.
There's one thing we've learned over the years with rescue groups and shelters - it's that they do the hard work, and they make the rules. Often times potential adoptors feel left out because of some of the rules, but it's usually in the best interest of the dogs. We're not so sure in this case.
