Reviews for Critter Care Adoption Inc
I just wanted to take this time to thank Cheryl from Critter Care Adoptions for her hard work in helping to rescue Snickers, a German Shepherd mix. He belonged to a client of mine, but she was unable to keep him due to complications with her living arrangements. Snickers was 2 years old and was not the most well-behaved dog, but was very sweet and just needed some love and attention. My client was going to forfeit him to a shelter, but my fear was that most shelters would immediately put him down due to his behavioral issues. I therefore turned to social media as well as calling every rescue in the area in hopes of locating someone that could help find a home for this sweet boy. Unfortunately, I received very few responses on social media, and was not having any success with rescues calling me back. I then received a call from Cheryl and I immediately could tell from talking with her that she was someone that truly cared about this animal’s safety and well-being. I discussed Snickers’ situation with her at length, and she assured me that she would do everything in her power to help find Snickers a home. Through her relentless efforts, she was able to help find a no-kill shelter that was willing to take Snickers in. While we could not find him his forever home, with Cheryl’s help, Snickers now has a home at a shelter that will take care of him and make sure he is safe until he can be adopted one day. I am truly appreciative of Cheryl’s assistance, which saved Snickers’ life. I can’t thank her enough for all of her help, and would recommend this rescue to anyone trying to help an animal in need. Thank you again for your help Cheryl! I am forever grateful! Kara Burdelski.
First I'd like to say that hoarder 128 is an absolte liar and should be ashamed of herself (I assume it's a woman.). I have known Dr. Haywood for 10 years. Her house does not smell and her mother doesn't live with her so why the blatant lies I have no idea. I'm guessing maybe she turned her down for adoption, probably a bad home. Dr. Haywood is an excellent vet. She spends thousands of dollars of her own money on her fosters. If it's a surgery or treatment she can't do herself the animal goes to PVSEC. She takes in animals with serious health issues and elderly animals. Her vet clinic is wonderful and I would recommend it to anyone.
Cheryl rigorously reviews adoption applicants, which I believe all shelters wish they had the capacity to do. She works full time as a vet and commits her free time to caring for and finding homes for abandoned and anused animals. Every step of her process was worth having Willie and Scout come in our lives.
We just adopted a second pet from Critter Care. They really care for their animals and are careful about their placements. We are so grateful for the care they gave to our two pets.

I would like to commend Cheryl from Critter Care Adoptions for the compassion she has for her adoptable furry family members. My friend, Berkleysmom2, adopted a great dog from Cheryl at Critter Care to help spark some life and be a companion for her sick dog, Beemer. RIP Beems. Merlin (aka Berkley) fit in so well with my friend and Beemer. He help Beemer live the last bit of his life with a friend and a companion that made him feel like a puppy again. They were best buds and he kept Beemer motivated to live his remaining time on this earth with spunk and quality. When the time came and Beemer left this earth, Merlin was there for my friend to help her get through the hard times of missing Beemer. He has continued to be Becky's best bud and fill her broken heart with love and happiness.
Cheryl has a very hard job on her hands. She does it very well. She called me as a reference to make sure the Merlin was going to a great home and would be well taken care of and loved. We talked a very long time on the phone and she asked many questions. I had no problems with Cheryl asking about the care and love Merlin would have when Becky adopted him. Cheryl was very professional and cares deeply for the welfare of her fur babies. Only the right home will be accepted. Cheryl may have strict, but very needed qualifications, and in turn this may turn some adopters against her.
Remember....Cheryl is helping lost souls find new homes....it's a very difficult decision to make the best placement happen....her concerns are for the proper fit with adopters and adoptees.....
ALL ADOPTION AGENCIES have their rules and reasons to accept or deny adopters....it's for the best concern of there animals.....they don't want them to be repeat adoptees...
So, please don't be hesitant about contacting Critter Care Adoptions...... you may be hurt and confused about why you're not selected...don't hold a grudge...be understanding and move on...you'll find the right adoption agency.....
these lost souls need your help...not your hurt feelings....don't give up!

I adopted a lovely and absolutely delightful puppy from Critter Care. While the process was rigorous, I could not be more delighted with my little Stella. I applaud and admire Doc Cheryl and her team for finding ideal environments for these abused and abandoned animals.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
find able volunteers to help the organization.
How would you describe the help you got from this organization?

My wife and I recently adopted an adorable, sweet dog through Critter Care, and have been extremely pleased with the entire process.
Dr. Cheryl has been very kind and thorough, has treated little Willie with incredible kindness and care, and has given us a tremendous amount of guidance and help.
We are very grateful to Dr. Cheryl and Critter care for doing so much to bring this new family member into our lives.

I would like to extend my sincere appreciation and gratitude to Cheryl from Critter Care Adoptions Inc. There are so many shelters and rescues, but she went above and beyond to interview myself to make sure that we were the right family for Merlin! She was very honest and pleasant during our meet and greet and did an extensive work up with my references pending the adoption process. My older dog has renal failure and she took time to give me advice and even gave me tips and renal diet dog food. She encouraged different foods and gave me feedback on how I could even further help him with his illness. I was fortunate and adopted a 2 year old Shihtzu/Maltese male who was named Merlin. Her biography on Merlin was absolutely correct! He got along very well with my 5 year old Shihtzu, Beemer, loves car rides, is always by my side and does like to be the top dog in the house. The minute that they hung out, you can see that they would be best buddies:). Cheryl was very kind and drove over an hour an a half to bring Merlin to our home. I know that Cheryl has a special place in her heart caring for all of these animals. Her focus and main goal is to place the animal in the proper care that is best for the pet. I am very appreciative that I found Critter Care Adoptions, Inc. by Google searching what I exactly was looking for. I will absolutely 100% look to Critter Care to adopt another dog from Cheryl in the future. Thanks Cheryl for our follow up conversations and giving me this special little boy, we all just love him!!!!

DO NOT ADOPT FROM THIS LADY!! We filled an application with references and vet information. A week goes by and she calls saying we have been approved and to meet her at her house the next evening at 7:30 to pick the kitten we wanted. We show up right on time. Her husband answers the door and tells us she is not here and to wait in our car. As we sat in our car for another half hour waiting she finally pulls in ( no phone call or text saying she will be late). We finally get inside the house. Let me tell you....the smell is so horrible, I had to hide back puking. She has 15 dogs and 14 cats....yes a total of 29 animals. We end up picking the kitten we wanted (to save it from the smell). She says she will be at our house Friday at 6pm to bring the kitten over. She finally arrived at 8:30. She sits on our catch for more than an hour and tells us she can't leave the kitten with us!!!! Our house is clean and tidy. She has hoarding issues and doesn't want to get rid of any of her animals! This lady is a joke....
