APV is absolutely not a puppy mill. I am wondering if the review dated June 2, 2012 is mistaking A PUPPYS VOICE (APV) for another rescue organization with the word PUPPY in its name that had some problems in 2010.

Everything that I know about APV has been good. They have an association with a very good local vet and have had very few problems. Many of the dogs are from an animal shelter in Northern New Mexico where the problem with abandoned animals is greater than it is here.

APV has a relationship with the New Mexico shelter and does frequent trips down there to relocate animals up here where they have a much better chance at adoption.

I have been involved mostly with fostering mama dogs after the pups have been weaned and getting them in shape for adoption. I have found everyone association with the organization to be very caring and responsible.

I don't know where the money goes. We paid $225 for a puppy and they have no shelter to pay for or other overhead costs like paying staff as the staff all volunteer. The puppy had not been to the vet like they said and they could not produce shot records. We we took the puppy to the vet, the vet noticed significant health concerns and asked where we got the dog. When we told her, she explained that A Puppys Voice has a terrible record in the Fort Collins vet community. They are a puppy mill operating as a non-profit. They staff would not return our calls after we went to the vet and when we spoke to them personally, they could not answer our questions about the dogs history or where the dog came from. Friends of ours that also purchased a dog from them also contacted them to get some information and they also were not helped. I had not thought about it, but the fact they get entire litters, claim to know the exact lineage but somehow don't know the birth date or even the state the dogs came from is pretty suspicious also. I advise anyone to try other non-profits and not to do what we did, which was take the easier option of just buying a dog outside petco on a saturday.
