  1. I bought from a breeder once, but even though I ended up with a great dog who was generally in good health his entire life and lived to be 15 years old, I still can't bring myself to do it again. My next dog was a rescue who turned out to know hand signals, yay! More recently I matched up with a mini boxer; who even knew that was a breed!? She's the best kisser in the world, super smart, fast as fast can be zoomies at the dog park, and now she has a brother we rescued who was only 8 lbs (should be closer to 25 lbs) who spent his first night here waking up just to gleefully dance and pounce on his new bed, turn 3 times and go back to sleep.

  2. Loophole/Hack: Breeders guise as rescue shelters, take an "un-rescued" pet, leave it at a site on its own for a while, then "rescue" it…VOILA! You've got yourself a rescue.

    Also, aren't all pets technically rescue? I mean if you own a pet and it breeds to give birth to a bunch of pups, and if no one is going to buy them, due to this law, and then you decide to abandon them, then do they not become a rescue?

    …also, I've never heard of a rescue rabbit.
