15 Years ago (2001) I adopted a Female Siberian Husky from All-Terrier Rescue & She gave me nearly 13 Years, but Passed on July 3rd, 2015.

Finally I am again ready to Adopt & All-Terrier has another Female Husky listed. I contacted them via email to attend the next Adoption Event at PetSmart on Cascade Avenue in Beaverton I also explained in my message that I am a Former Client & a Disabled Veteran. The response I received: "Sorry this event is full please check.back next week." Due to the fact they are attending a "Special Adoption Event" in Salem on January 21st, I replied, requesting a Guarantee that This Specific Dog would not be adopted-out before "next week". Their reply was very abrupt: Please find a dog elsewhere. You do not get to boss is around.

Clearly All-Terrier Rescue does not care about their Former Clients, The Animals they have listed on Petfinder.com or any future Customers

It is sad when you meet someone who is condescending and rude. The owner of this organization screams misery and hatred for the public she is supposed to be serving. Her attitude is to the detriment of the animals she keeps.
She refused to give me any information belittling me for not reading her website. Basically so she did not need to give information or talk to the client. Maybe intentional but serious flaw in customer service in general.
Petsmart should be more selective of the organization's they choose to host adoptions.
Instead of reading her website, I should have read all these reviews first before wasting my time to go and meet someone who needs to examine her life and figure out why she is so miserable. I feel sorry for her, but more the dogs who will not get adopted because of her attitude!!!

My family adopted a dog from All Terriers Rescue Hunters Crossing when they had an adoption event at the PetsMart on Cascade Ave in Oregon on Saturday, November 26, 2016. When we brought him back to our house, he tried attacking me cats. I panicked and emailed the rescue about returning him. I was told that they only accept returns on Saturdays at 10am. I also called them and spoke to the owner about how to introduce him to my cats. The only thing I was told was to not introduce them and to crate him. The next day, we bought a crate but he broke out of it within 40 minutes. We were concerned about the safety of our cats, so my husband and I decided to post an ad on craigslist in case we had to rehome him immediately. Our powt got flagged immediately so it was taken down. After a few days, the dog was adjusting and things started to calm down. We started bonding with him and realized that we did not want rehome him. On Wednesday, November 30, 2016, I received a call from the owner stating that she was voiding our contract and wanted the dog back on Saturday. She threatened me a lawsuit if I did not comply. My family was devastated and did not want them to take this dog back, so we spoke with a lawyer that informed us that they have dealt with this organization before because they sued a previous adopter for breach of contract; however, the lawyer had the case dismissed. I also has him and a couple other lawyers look over my contract and every one of them stated that they saw no breach of contract. Unfortunately, we could not afford to defend ourselves in court if she decided to sue us; therefore, we gave her our dog on Saturday December 3. My family is devastated. We also were not refunded the $300 adoption fee that we gave them and from my understanding they are going to put the dog up for adoption again for an additional $300 adoption fee. The way they conduct business is very shady and unprofessional.

I went to look at potential adoption dogs today. The dogs were in poor condition, some were sick, and another was injured. The owner, Samantha, was extremely rude, condescending, and unprofessional. They do not want to give information on dogs. They were showing dogs that had only been neutered the day before, which isn't much recovery time at all. I feel horrible for these animals. A random woman in Petsmart came up to me and warned me not to adopt from them because she adopted a puppy from them that had parvovirus and another bacterial issue that infected her other dogs. Another lady told me that the week before they adopted out a dog to another person that she wanted to adopt. It was a depressing and horrible experience and the animals' best interest is not priority.

Rudest and absolutely heartless people who run this organization. They do not simply care about the animals they shelter. All they care about is making money. They will be completely disrespectful to anyone who may consider adoption.
Shady group of bitter old women who have simply lived out their time on this planet. I feel completely awful for all the animals in their care. These women who run this organization if you would call it that (much more like a cruel cattle ranch) do not know anything about humanity. They will go to great lengths to avoid questions as well as contact via phone. They're all about cash. A non profit organization wouldn't be so money hungry if they truly cared about animals. They will "sell" sick animals simply because they are trying to move "inventory". I will however implore people with big hearts to save these poor innocent animals from the clutches of these old bags. Avoid the ring leader at all cost as she is the rudest hateful creature of them all. She will tug on a dogs leash her way regardless if the dog is feeling scared or sad. She has no heart and no soul. Cruelty is her choice of behavior towards the animals. She thirsts for money. That alone should be a red flag that this is in fact not a non profit organization.

My neighbor had a dog purchased through this group. The dog escaped through the fence. This rescue showed up to retrieve the dog in addition to other volunteers. They had dogs stacked in crates in their van and they did not want anyone to help look for the dog. Why? Because once the dog was located, they seized it from him and claimed it was in the contract. They can basically seize a dog for most any reason stated in the contract. There got in a fight with other volunteers, the police were called, it was a mess. In the end, they were allowed to take the dog because it was a civil matter. I do not believe the $300 was refunded. This is not a true non profit.

I adopted our puppy from one of their PetSmart events. None of the employees from the rescue were there, and if they were, I doubt I would have done it. The adoption process was normal, except for the all cash fee, which was kind of shady, but I figured they wanted to avoid processing fees, so I went with it. I had a great woman at PetSmart helping me and she suggested I take her to Banfield as soon as possible because as a puppy, she still needed some vaccines. The way she said it made me feel a little uneasy, but I assumed she was just upselling their vet services. After two days I've noticed some things about our new puppy and I had some questions, so I emailed the rescue. I've received nothing but lies and rude responses. She even threatened to take our puppy from us if we brought her to the vet. What rescue would do that!? Only a rescue with something to hide. After reading the reviews on here, I understand why she said that. I will be taking my new puppy to the vet, and that vet will be taking care of her, and there's nothing the rescue can do about it. She claims it's in my contract, but the exact opposite is in my contract. I'm thankful for this little girl, she's a great addition to our family, and I'm glad to have gotten her out of that hell hole. But in the future, I will ONLY be adopting from shelters. This rescue has ruined all rescues for me. I don't trust any of them.

Very rude staff. I witnessed one of their staff being really cold and was unnecessarily punishing one of the dogs they had. When we asked her to stop her response was "if you don't like it. Take it home". People who care about dogs would never refer to one as "it". They clearly do not care for the animals they have.

These people either know nothing about the dogs they adopt out or else falsify it. Do not trust anything they say because most likely it's made up to get the dog adopted.
There was enough wrong info on the dog's paperwork to make me question whether or not it got all the vaccinations listed on the one sheet.
And because the dog had bitten my child when we got it home I wanted to make sure he got his rabies shot. The rabies vaccination paperwork given with my adopted dog was neither signed by a vet nor stamped with the vets seal. When I called Samantha to ask about it she rudely responded that "there was phone number on it wasn't there?"
When I brought the dog to its new vet, they called the number on the rabies paperwork and apparently that vet keeps no records whatsoever of the dogs he services. None. That seemed incredibly suspicious. It's like they just have photocopies of this paper to give people when they get dogs at their adoption events.
If that wasn't enough, the dog was neutered and in his paperwork had a date for the sutures to be removed. When I adopted him, it was almost two weeks past the date for it to be removed. They didn't even bother taking them out! And again when questioned about it was rudely told to just bring him in during their next adoption event.
No thank you!
After adopting the dog I wanted nothing else to do with this horrible organization. They clearly care nothing about rescue and only about making money- The $300 cash only adoption fees. Avoid them and go with a more reputable organization unless you are just desperate to save a pet from their "care."
