USA Schnauzer Rescue

Are you searching for a USA Schnauzer Rescue Organization?

There is quite a large number of rescue groups in the USA.

This is both good and bad. On the one hand it means there are a lot of devoted people who care about these dogs, the rescue centers are manned by dedicated volunteers who give up their time to help rehome Miniature, Standard and Giant Schnauzers.
On the other hand it also means there are a lot of abandoned Schnauzers out there

Before you go ahead and contact one of them, have a read of our main page on Schnauzer Rescue. This'll give you an insight into the pros and cons involved in adopting a rescue schnauzer -
Schnauzer Rescue - the Facts.

USA giant schnauzer rescue dog

It IS a big commitment for all involved. Here are a few of the points to consider before taking on a rescue:

*Schnauzer adoption is NOT a cheap way of getting a purebred dog and shouldn't be viewed as such. It could cost you several hundred dollars. You'll have adoption fees to pay and often vaccination and veterinary bills as well as worm and flea medication and spaying or neutering. Make sure you're aware of the full cost.

*Schnauzer rescue dogs may not be suitable for families with young children. The dog may be jealous of the attention given to the children or may not like being handled or teased a lot - especially at first.

*Many rescue dogs have had difficult lives. You need plenty of TIME to help them to rehabilitate.

*Some rescue Schnauzers have initial problems with housebreaking. Others may need socialization training with people as well as other dogs.

*If you are serious about adopting a Schnauzer you may have to wait until a suitable dog comes up.

*It is not just the dogs that are screened! You'll probably have to undergo a screening by your chosen Schnauzer rescue organisation to make sure you can provide a suitable home. You might have to provide references too.

Hopefully, you will pass any tests with flying colours, but it's best to be aware of possible drawbacks at the outset.

Good luck.
