Hi Michelle,
Are you having difficulty getting a response with an application? The reason I ask is that about 4 years ago I wanted to adopt from the rescue league of Chicago but never got a response. after about a year I just said enough and found a very reputable breeder and bought my little guy. I completely understand that every dog should be placed in the "right" home but after I submitted and submitted and didn't even get a reply I decided to take another route. Don't feel like you're the only one, trust me. I hope this helps a little.

Hi Michelle,

I've applied 3 times, the 1st one they sent me the infamous rejection letter, but didn't tell me why I wasn't picked (it may not have been anything wrong with my app, they just found a better fit for the dog.... but didn't even seem like it was fair), the 2nd time I received an email for a phone interview that never happened, and they too found a "better" fit for the pup (that one really hurt, I wanted that little girl so bad!), this time, well, I just applied today, so I haven't heard anything yet. However, from this particular rescue, I do get the automated email that they did receive my application/donation, so I know they are going through.

I have also been put on a waiting list with a reputable breeder, but not sure how long I will have to wait for that little bundle of joy. :) But I'm being surprisingly patient for the right little baby to come along (I'm sure my husband would not agree with that statement, haha, every night I'm whining about not having my little Frenchie) :)

Logan is just a cutie!!

I agree. I sent in a volunteer application probably about a month ago.... Still no response. They did send a thank you for my donation.

From my own experience it helps to make your application stand out by describing how you would make a great home for a Frenchie. Also, try sending a follow-up email reminding them who you are; I am sure they are overloaded with applications.
Praying that you get a call!
