Reviews for Mid-Atlantic English Springer Spaniel Rescue Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

I adopted a 3 year old male in 2010. Working with this group and its volunteers was such a positive experience. In 2013 we again adopted 2 dogs from them. One had some serious health issues and MAESSR got him well, seen by vet and he is such a sweetheart. I was so inspired I now volunteer.

In my 15+ years working with this organization, I am continually impressed with their desire to do what is right for the dogs. Every effort is made to match the right dog to the right situation. Follow-up is fantastic and once a dog is brought into the organization, it remains a part of the organization for as long as it lives. MAESSR attempts to help all owners of English Springer Spaniels regardless of affiliation or geographic region.

We adopted an older English Springer Spaniel from this organization. He had had suffered from ill treatment and had serious medical issues. Thanks to MAESSR, his medical issues were addressed by a qualified veterinarian and our adopted Spaniel has become a wonderful addition to our household. MAESSR was very careful about placement. Prior to adoption they interviewed us and they also checked with our veterinarian, to make sure that we'd be likely to provide good care to the dog we wanted to adopt. Although we've had no problems with our dog, I understand that MAESSR stands ready to assist with training and addressing other potential needs. I'd definitely recommend MAESSR to anyone interested in adopting a springer spaniel.

The English Springer Spaniels rescued by this organization appear to be used as geopolitical chattel in an attempt to remain in control over the animals distribution, in disregard of the potential happiness and welfare of the animals under their care. This organization has elected to act independently of a national ESS rescue effort and organization which works across state lines to place English Springer Spaniels in beneficial homes.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Firsthand in the written correspondence. Quotes: "unfair to the potential applicants in our own region" "We are not members of the National ESS Rescue organization" "We currently have a fairly long wait list for families that live in our area"

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Work with and not against the best interests of the animals and the National Organization.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Nothing positive to say as of this date 2/13/10

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Only written correspondence as of this date. No telephone contact. No personal contact.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

The Organization has not disclosed on it's Statement 6 of the latest 990 filing what $80,000 was used for in order to execute their mission.

Ways to make it better...

Leadership and membership maintained focus on the mission of the organization rather than control over their adoption locations in order to maintain their independence and power. Egos in charge? Petty.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Setting aside egos and control for the benefit of the rescued animals.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Disappointed. Appears to be a private club and self serving.
