Question: My wife filled out an application with a local dog rescue and they are sending out a volunteer to do a preliminary home inspection. We haven't yet requested to meet any dogs. The volunteer sent a reply email which stated:
Is the request for donation customary? It kind of makes sense to me since they are taking the time to come out, with no guarantee of us adopting a dog. So, assuming this is kosher, how much of a donation would you think is adequate. Keep in mind we FULLY intend to adopt a dog from this rescue.The next step in the adoption process is for me to come to your home to meet you.
At the time of the visit the Rescue would greatly appreciate a donation.
All feedback welcome.
