I understand you being upset, and honestly, I would be too. That said, after working in rescue for years, unless the adoption fee has been paid, nothing is guaranteed. If I had someone standing in front of me who said "I'll take the dog today" and they were just as good as the home who couldn't make it that day, I'd send the dog with the folks who were standing in front of me too. It's NOT a reflection on you, or what kind of home you would be. But getting that dog out THAT DAY frees up a shelter kennel or a foster home three days sooner, which is better for that dog and better for the dog that can now fill that empty slot in the rescue and hopefully find a home too.
