can you recommend a place where me and my husband can give away our chinese shar pei dog?

alot of sources online say make sure to give away to a pet shelter that doesn't put them down - but how do I find out this info??

do you guys have any recommendations here in SA that you know for sure they don't put animals down?

also, is there going to be a fee or a charge for us giving her away? and is there going to be a waiting list to apply for her to be adopted?

thanks

JW

Why are you giving away your dog? I understand there are extreme situations that might require it, but my pets are my kids and I would never part with them under any circumstances. Is it possible a relative or friend could take the dog until you are settled in a few location? Here is some infor that might be of some help. Good luck to you and your dog.

There are some no kill facilities, but most often they are full, and have a waiting list. There is a Shar-Pei rescue in Texas, but its in north Texas, still the website maybe of some help to you. Here are a few websites that might be useful. The sad fact is there so many lovely sweet dogs without homes. Be very careful if you decide to place an ad yourself to find the dog a home. Charge a re-homing fee of some sort. There are evil people out there that sell dogs to research facilities and use them to fight. They look for free dog ads. Very sick indeed, but still in 2011 it happens.

Well, at least the OP is trying to find a good home. Too many folks will simply "release" them onto the streets. Never know why some folks have to give up an animal - things can happen in our lives that simply make it necessary, and it's apparently what's happened here. Hopefully, someone reading this will contact the OP and arrange to take the dog into a loving home....

Check with your friends. Don't be a hard sell, but mention the dog is available if they know someone who can provide a decent home.

Where did you get her? If a breeder, check with them. There are sometimes rescue networks that can help out.

For a shelter, you will need to seek out a no-kill shelter. Google "san antonio no kill shelters" will bring you up a few links.

By offering this simplistic advice, I'm assuming you're not from here, so I want to dispel something for the benefit of future readers of this thread.

San Antonio's city shelters are officially working to reach no-kill status in 2012. They're constantly full to capacity because they take in more dogs and cats than they can adopt out. As a result, they don't take in pets and they don't seek out strays. The city has a massive stray pet problem that has been made worse by the no-kill goal. The capacity issue at public shelters has made the private shelters full to their capacity, too. Which is probably why the OP is asking for advice here.

The city not killing animals at its shelters has left almost no options for pet owners needing to shelter a pet here other than euthanasia and releasing them as strays. It's a glaring example of unintended consequences of a policy shift.
