What happens to dogs in shelters if not adopted?
If your dog doesn’t get adopted within its 72 hours and the shelter is full, it will be destroyed. If the shelter isn’t full and your dog is good enough, and of a desirable enough breed, it may get a stay of execution, though not for long. Even the sweetest dogs will turn in this environment.

Where should rescue dogs sleep first?
Take your pup to her new sleeping space, which should be set up with a Kong, your old sweatshirt, and a bed for her. If she’s not in a crate, I’d recommend putting up some dog gates to keep her in the general sleeping area. If she’s sleeping in your bed, just close your bedroom door.
Where should an adopted dog sleep?
Sleeping-Initially the crate or bed should be in the room you would like the dog to sleep in eventually. The area should be safe, dog-proofed, easily cleaned, cozy and quiet, with familiar scents. Don’t put your new dog in an uninhabited area like the garage or basement.
