Q and A with Amy Hunt, Multiple Breed Rescue, Founder

Q and A with Amy Hunt (Russell Rescue Inc./Ohio State Rep.) Founder of the Multiple Breed Rescue .Check out her blog Dog Rescuer’s Life

1. How did you get started blogging on your topic?

I needed an outlet. Dog rescue is REALLY stressful and you have to deal with a lot of not so nice people. I needed a way to release my frustration and someone I worked with said I should start a blog. So I did.

2. Do you have any tips for other bloggers?

Honestly, I don’t. I blog as a method to vent, educate and help others who maybe are in rescue so they know that they aren’t alone in the way they feel and maybe to help others who want a dog, have a dog, etc. This blog comes up as #2 on google and I get a lot of comments on it. Good to know it has helped a few people. [5]

3. What is the importance of building connections on the web?

EDUCATING! Not everyone knows about puppy mills or dog overpopulation. Without networking with as many people as I can then even more people would go uneducated and the abuse would never end.

4. What do you think about animal foster care and adoption?

Adoption obviously should be someones first choice. There are too many homeless dogs in this world for someone to go out and buy. As for foster care it can be very challenging and rewarding. If more people would do it, less animals would die alone in a shelter.

5. Do you have any tips for those looking to adopt or foster a pet in finding the right adoption center?

Unfortunetly, like everything there are scammers. As for adopting the rules are simple…. make sure the adoption shelter, rescue or person you are dealing with has all the proper documentation for the dog (where it came from, vet records showing it was fixed, up dated on shots, heartworm tested, etc.) also you as an adopter should have to fill out an application, sign a contract, have a vet reference run and be interviewed by the adoption agency you are working with. Also, the contract should state that the dog will ALWAYS be returned to the adoption agency if you are no longer able to keep it. That is a good sign they are legitimate..same goes with breeders!
