It is sad... the animals always pays :(
We have the contract just in case but don't enforce it unless it is really truly a bad situation and most of the time we are to busy to do home checks and be all excuse my language but Anal about things. Too **** many horses "need" saving...
We also weed out rescues by personality and trainability. Sounds bad but if we can't train them, they don't find homes and take up space.
Rescuing isnt black and white and is very controversial...

Exactly my point with the hypocrisy from rescuses. If you are not going to enforce it why is it int he contract ? If you're not anal (your words) why have anal verbiage in the contracts ? When you write one thing on paper, but say another your talking out of both sides of your mouth and to me, is an immediate turnoff and something I would want nothing to do with.
Case in point with specific, contract spelled out a mandatory paste worm cycle, yet potential adopter uses fecal count and worms as needed. Contract spelled out, "No Racing". Yet this was an arabian rescue and adopter specifically wanted the horse for endurance.
In both points the rescue said, "Oh don't worry about the contract its just a formality",,,, well then take it out of the contract.
Seriously. If you know stuff is anal and you know your not going to enforce it, stop being anal and intrusive with the contracts and maybe you will place a few more horses in decent homes.
