  • This organization is very poor with communication and does not have the best interest of the animals they care for. We were new to the adoption process and when asking polite, clear answers the responses were blunt, short, and not very clear. A foster made contact with me to adopt a puppy, a few days later stated she had promised the dog to someone else at apparently the same time, and then a day later emailed me back saying my family could once again be eligible to adopt the puppy. When I asked to speak to the organization she said no. When I contacted the organization through FB messenger and email, they did not respond. With so many shelters and rescues in the area, avoid this place entirely. Invest in shelters that will communicate effectively and work well to place the animals in good homes.
