Reviews for Proverbs 12 10 Animal Rescue & Adoption
This company RUINED my family! My fiance and I had a great family. We wanted to save another dog and have a companion for our current dog. We worked with a director through Proverbs, who assured me that she would work extremely hard to help place the right dog for us into our home. Instead they brought in Gypsie who destroyed our home and our family. We were told that gypsie was good with cats and other dogs, we followed all of the protocols and steps that were asked of us as new adoption parents. We came home after a night out to dinner and the dog had slaughtered both of our cats. It was not an accident. It was 2 intentional killings. Those cats were our babies. This lady told us she was going to retest the dog with cats and she said the dog was good with cats. She then proceeded to bring the dog over for a home visit and immediately left her in our care after 6 months in a boarding spot. I have the text message conversations to validate this incident. Those were our babies that were unknowing to the threat that the dog this company assured me was safe brought. This rescue company just tore apart my family. Both of those cats were under 2 years old. They were taken so young and so violently. My fiance had to clean up two dead bodies, and all the blood and carnage. We are devastated. I have sent emails to multiple people within the company who have not responded in over 48 hours.
Fantastic organization, full of people willing to do whatever it takes to help. The foster families alone do an AMAZING job helping animals adjust and get ready to go to their forever homes. Simply The Best!
I now have an "adopted" baby who was wonderfully trained by a foster family - and another 1 year old boy we're fostering. Love This Group!

Proverbs 12:10 has been such a blessing for us. Our sweet Murphy (fka Ruger) is constantly by my side. He is so loved. ♥ We also had the blessing of fostering 7 beautiful pups (we rescued their mama when she was starving to death and about a week pregnant). We knew Proverbs 12:10 would help us find the best homes for Millie's puppies, and they sure did! We have moved from the area now, so we aren't able to volunteer any more, but Proverbs 12:10 will forever have a special place in our hearts. So thankful for the love that is Proverbs 12:10.
Pictures are of Rookie (Murphy's best friend) and Murphy, Millie, and her litter of babies who were placed through Proverbs 12:10 with amazing forever families
This is an exceptional rescue organization! The staff is well organized, super friendly, and work endlessly for the precious fur babies. I have adopted 3 dogs from them already. I currently foster and have 2 fosters now. The animals that are lucky enough to join the Proverbs 12:10 family will NEVER know anything but love for the rest of their lives. Once a Proverbs baby .... ALWAYS a proverbs baby. Fur babies that have medical issues do not get refused or euthanized without every effort being made to save the fur baby. I have to say .... Proverbs 12:10 have blessed me with knowing angels - both 2 legged angels and 4 legged angels!!!!!
My friend, Kathy Strunk introduced me to the Proverbs 12:10 Rescue site. And, since she doesn't have a Facebook account, I gave this group a 5-star rating for her. The 5 stars are from me too because I see for myself how happy Proverbs has made Kathy with her adoption of a young Choclate Lab girl named Sadie (new name). God surely had His hand in helping the Strunks & Proverbs find one another... And since then, through Kathy's efforts, Sadie has gotten her certification as a therapy dog - Sadie goes to nursing homes and schools and churches and other venues to show her love to people and to also show how smart she is. So, thanks to Proverbs 12:10, there is another smart, pretty, sweet dog in a home where it is needed, wanted and greatly loved. God bless you all at Proverbs!
My journey with Proverbs is an exceptional one. I knew it was time to find a new dog, but I didn't realize how much work was actually done for these animals before I even looked at them. Proverbs vets them, gives them their shots, and loves them until a forever home can be found. I am thankful for this organization and their commitment to finding homes for all of the animals in their care. I would recommend this rescue 1000 times over. My Callie was rescued by them first and I am forever grateful.
We have been fosters for Proverbs 12:10 Rescue for nearly a year. During this time we have fostered 3 adult dogs and 15 puppies (who were born in our home). I initially thought that we were going to help these nice folks at Proverbs. Wow, was I mistaken. Our family has been blessed beyond measure by being a part of the many who work together. Each time I've needed support (as a foster) I have been met with cooperation, answers, and what ever we have been in need of. The commitment of the coordinators and each person down the line has impressed me as heartfelt and sincere. The care and love of the animals is the focus of this rescue. Our family has gained so much more understanding of the true meaning of rescue and lifetime commitment to those rescued. Once a Proverbs baby, always a Proverbs baby. For anyone wishing to volunteer or support this organization, my advice is, "don't wait, step forward now."
I haven't adopted a dog from here but I placed a dog I found in my neighborhood with a foster from Proverbs. Leigh (the foster) was so sweet, kind, and friendly. She made the process very easy and promised to give me updates. It just made me feel totally at ease and I knew I was making the right decision. Highly recommend coming to Proverbs if you're looking to adopt a pet! The volunteers are awesome!
I have been a foster, an adopter and a volunteer for this amazing organization! They truly have the best interests of the animals they rescue at heart. People don't always realize that this organization is run by volunteers, many of which have full time day jobs. Even so, the dedication is unbelievable. Once you experience for yourself the life changing work that is done for the animals that are rescued by Proverbs you automatically want to jump in and help keep it all going and be a part of the group. Further, these are people that I want to be around because of the kindness in their hearts related to how they live their lives generally.
My experience with Proverbs has been as a supporter and some experience as a foster. Both experiences have been very positive. Proverbs is determined to find the best homes possible for the animals that have been lucky enough to have been placed in their care. No expense is spared when caring for a Proverbs baby---from heartworm treatment, to spaying or neutering, to more extensive medically necessary surgeries. Every penny that is donated or raised goes towards the care of the animals as Proverbs is completely run by volunteers. I am thankful for the hearts of this wonderful group of volunteers---keep up the good work!
