The staff of Project Wildlife are the most carry of wild animals in San Diego County. After discovering two baby rabbits (eyes still shut) who had tumbled onto a sidewalk in the La Mesa area several weeks ago, I proceeded to try and find their nest. When I couldn't locate the nest to return them to, I then proceeded to go to three near by veterinary offices with no luck in obtaining some help. However the emergency vet nearby suggested that I take the little bunnies to the Project Wildlife location. When I finally arrived at Project Wildlife it was after hours. Fortunately, there were clear instructions about how to leave the bunnies in a safe and warm area on their porch. What a relief! And then a staff member called me the next day to say the baby bunnies were now being cared for by their "bunny rescue team".
Sounds like the fault was whomever gave your dog to them. Who knows, Second Chance Dog may have been told that you gave the dog away, that you moved off and left it, or even that you had died. If these people were out for the money and only cared about themselves, they sure as heck wouldn't be in the animal rescue field.
