  • Would not let my daughter see the cat she wanted to look at, kept showing other cat's. We ended up adopting another cat that the lady claimed to be a main coon mix, but looks nothing like a main coon. I would be very cautious around this pet rescue. A bit sketchy on what they claim.

  • I was calling in regards to a cat 2 days before Christmas to surprise my uncle. The first time I proceeded to call, wasn't sure if I had the right number, so tried once more and realized it was the right number and at the time I didn't think about leaving a voice mail. Then my aunt suggested I do leave a voice mail for a call back. So called back to try and leave a voice mail but the call kept goin out without goin to a voicemail, thinking my phone was having issues. I proceeded to try a couple more times no luck. A loment later I received a phone call from the animal shelter and got really excited, but when I answered the lady was very rude and proceeded to say to me " how dare you call 5 times in a row we are having an animal emergency you are being very rude" and my aunt could hear her speaking to me very loudly and rudely so she told me to just hang up. And all I was wanting to do was adopt a kitten for my uncles Christmas gift. Can not believe how disrespectful she was when it is a animal adoption agency to find homes for pets in need because I live almost an hour and half away and my aunt was goin to drive me to get it. :(
