These people- the President and her Treasurer husband, turned a dream come true into an absolute nightmare for me. I waited for 3 months after my application was approved to get the dog I wanted to adopt, which was 10 yrs old and blind. I was and he was part of Senior to Senior program so no adoption fees, but they absolutely broke my heart and I'm sure it was traumatic for the dog as well. They brought him down on a Thursday and took him back/demanded him back the following Tuesday. I had signed a 9 page contract to which I didn't read because who would think something could go wrong with a dog adoption? I've owned toy poodles for 40 years! Per the contract you never really own the dog and the husband and wife are in your life forever. The reason(s) she demanded "her" dog back was because: I didn't follow her instructions, the dog had a few pee accidents (which I did not care about - he was 8 lbs) and pee'd in MY house! She accused me of teaching him bad habits. She went ballistic on the phone several times and hung up on me as well, even dropped the "F bomb". She even went as far as telling me that I had a memory issue! She even threatened me with the police if I did not give them MY copies of the paperwork - so I called the police. These are mean people who, based on my personal experience, do NOT have the dogs' welfare at heart nor the potential adopters. Very mean people whom I was tempted to follow up on with legal action; however, THERE IS ALWAYS KARMA. Be careful if you decide to deal with them.

The owner called to deny my application which is okay but she proceeded to question me and was emotionally charged making me feel like I was going to abuse or neglect the animal. She tried to scare me by making claimed that I will "loose my house" if my dog but a client of mine. Unprofessional, rude.. Here's the letter I wrote her: Hi Sue, Thank you for considering my application. When you called today it was clear that I was not going to be a candidate for your dogs, which is fine with me however when you asked me what if I "could stand not go to the bathroom for 9 hours" to make a point that the dogs couldn't either, I felt like you thought I would abuse/neglect my animal. Also, claiming that I will "loose my house!" if my dogs bites one of my clients I felt was presumptuous, emotionally charged, and unprofessional. Clearly you care about your animals and I'm certainly okay if I'm not a fit, but I didn't appreciate being treated like this.
