I absolutely love this conversation. East St. Louis, IL had a very big feral dog population years ago. Gateway Pet Guardians asked the same questions. We rehabbed hundreds of feral dogs over the years. They are such easy fosters.
Clare Callison

We quickly failed with our feral foster. He's now our sweet baby pup that follows our slightly older (than him) young dog like a duckling following its mama.

How do you get them out to playgroups without them being comfortable on leashes?

Working in Greece, I disagree with the definition of feral dogs. There are no wild dogs in the US, as you may find in India or Russia. And even those "wild dogs" were once the puppy of someone's pet. There are dogs that are afraid of humans, many are born on the street. We have many of these so called "feral dogs" in Greece who go after livestock. They do very well in a large fenced area in our partner shelters and are happy to live with other dogs. Some can be rehomed, but most just enjoy living in the open area of our partner shelters in Greece and have an amazing quality of life. Not every dog must be a pet.

I really enjoyed living with my feral foster turned adoptee. He never let me touch him but we coexisted and I actually loved it- VERY low maintenance.

Melanie Sadek
01:11:39
We use Home to Home. We do have people who want to shame those seeking new homes. Before we launched, we started educating our followers that we wouldn't accept shaming or negative comments on our social media platforms. I'll post our "hater" boiler plate.
Melanie Sadek
01:11:46
Shaming or derogatory comments have been removed from this thread, as we do not find them to be consistent with Valley Humane Society's values. Home to Home is a program that helps prevent animals from going to a shelter. It exists as a resource for guardians to find a better, more desirable home situation for their pet, and we encourage its use. We don't have to agree on the reasons why an animal is being re-homed, but we can agree that animals shouldn't be in a shelter. Shaming the owners likely won't change the situation for the better. Please refer to the General Information section of our About page for specifics on our Community Engagement Policies. Thank you for your understanding.

Thanks for that info @Melanie! We've had some challenging comments from some and it is great to have some great responses.
Melanie Sadek
01:14:13
Karalyn, we use it as a different marker of community success, but not "adopted".
Melanie Sadek
01:15:58
Kathy, we delete the comments and place this boiler plate in. We do not "hide" the comments. By doing this, we have had GREAT success in forcing these critics to reshape their comments. We track these "haters", so we know that this has changed their behavior.
Silja Schiller-Moumtzidis
01:16:31
