2) Remember: ADOPTED pets require an adjustment period after placement. Ohio Hound Rescue attempts to housebreak and socialize the pets it places for adoption. However, Adopter must realize that accidents will happen, particularly at the beginning of the adjustment period. It will take some time for most of the pets to learn the habits and routines of their new households. Likewise, Adopter will have to take the time to learn the pet's particular habits and preferences. Be patient and gentle with the pet during the adjustment period. Adopter will provide a “safe space” such as a crate or loft, and will instruct children not to bother the animal when it is in the “safe space”. This simple provision can prevent injury to both pet and child.
