This "rescue" group sells dogs with Parvo. My puppy started getting symptoms a few days after I adopted him so I brought him to the vet and he tested positive for Parvo. I immediately called the "rescue" group to let them know that their other puppies (and unvaccinated dogs) may have it, and she didn't even care! She told me I could take him back and exchange him! Like he was a sweater.

Canine Parvovirus is awful. If you are looking for a dog and not familiar with Parvo, I would encourage you to look it up. This is not kennel cough or giardia, this is a deadly virus that can cost thousands of dollars and hospitalization to treat.

Rescue groups are supposed to care about animals. Please do not support what they are doing.

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

a heartbreaking situation for me and many other owners who were also sold Parvo puppies. They are actually a for-profit business.

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

Take all their animals away and give them proper veterinary care. Shut the "rescue" group down.

How would you describe the help you got from this organization?

None

How likely are you to recommend this organization to a friend?

No

Badly

How did you find this group?

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?

This group has encouraged a distrust of animal rescue groups. I thought animal rescue groups also love animals, but I was wrong.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

I would have given this place ZERO stars if I could.

My parents recently adopted an eight week old mini-poodle from this "Non-Profit Rescue". The day after adopting the puppy they took it to the vet for an exam. The puppy tested VERY STRONG POSITIVE for Parvo. They tried to say that it was because of its recent shots. That theory was proven incorrect by the vet and the manufactures of the Parvo tests.

My folks decided to put the puppy to sleep to stop the spread of the virus.

My dad called the rescue where he was berated on the phone by the volunteers.

They refuse to acknowledge the fact that a puppy, that is being kept at foster homes, might have Parvo.

They lie without a conscience and worse, animals lives are at stake.

They can say what they want but they told my folks they got this puppy from a breeder that they knowingly are over breeding - which can lead to sick dogs. They "rescued" this puppy and charged $350 for her. The puppy NEVER saw a vet although their website states they do.

They also get puppies from Animal Control (which do take the dogs to the vet and adopt out the puppies at the cost of $10) then resale them - not rescue - for inflated prices.

They wrote a rebuttal to our BBB complaint that they "hope that anyone in this family gets sick...off with them is the answer". They seriously threatened us - in writing - to the BBB.

They are unethical in every way. Adopt a puppy from them at your own risk.

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

such a negative way that it has made me more of a fighter for those that can't fight for themselves. I have also been having other people with the same experiences stepping forward and are going to try to stop the spread of Parvo.

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

close down the non-profit. Have all of the foster homes sanitized and never allow them to do this to anyone or any animal EVER again.
