I've adopted four dogs through XOXO, two pups and two adults, and helped multiple friends and family adopt through the rescue. My girls are amazing and have certainly changed my life and my families'.
XOXO itself is a small organization staffed with extremely motivated caring people. I love that they do not leave the mama dogs behind like many rescues do. If they pull a litter of cute pups out of a kill shelter, they get the mom too. I know, because two of mine were mom's that they rescued along with their pups.
I adopted two dogs from XOXO and would highly recommend them to anyone. If I had any questions or issues with my dogs they were always there to help me. They also have support pages that I am also a member of so you can also keep in touch with whoever fostered your dog to help with the transition into your own home. So yes I do recommend them and give them 10 stars if it was an option
I have been fostering for XO for about 8 months and have had 11 dogs in that time period. When these dogs are pulled from shelters and taken to their fosters, they are in terrible shape! This is why the rescue is pulling the dogs in the first place. They are saving them from living in such awful conditions. I have fostered dogs that came in with fleas, ticks, mange, worms, you name it. Of course they will have these kinds of conditions, coming from where they do. As a foster, I pull off each and every tick, give baths to kill the fleas, and pick up the puppies' wormy poops (they still poop out worms after being de-wormed, it's part of the process). Most of the time, my foster would get adopted less than a week after I received them. It can take much longer than a week for these dogs to recover fully from the conditions they had. The fosters at XO are so giving and work so hard to give these puppies the loving that they need! And I think XO does an excellent job saving lives
XOXO is a group of guardian angels. They save dogs from death row, pull endless amounts of ticks from unwanted dogs, socialize scared dogs, teach their dogs basic manners and so much more! As a volunteer foster it has been a true blessing to work with this organization. The staff is professional and highly organized, saving dozens of dogs lives WEEKLY! My current foster puppy was living outdoors with a hunter. He had over 150 ticks all over his body including his mouth, eyes, eyes, and hind parts. He was terrified when I brought him home and wouldn't let any human near him. Now, he's a ball of energy and loves human attention. He's healing from his wounds and learning how to come, sit, and no. Xoxo not only blesses the community by saving animals, but they bless the community with the ability to foster and make a difference. Xoxo is an organization full of guardian angels saving animals lives daily.
I absolutely love our dog that we adopted from Xoxo. I thank all the volunteers of this rescue who work so hard to foster and save these animals.
My only complaint is how the adoption events are run. It's a "first come first serve" deal and i can easily see how issues may arise. I thought it was strange that even though I reached out specifically with a dog in mind I wanted to adopt I was pretty much told "get in line" I am lucky in that I was able to get to the adoption event early and see the puppy in the arms of a foster right away. Had that not been the case it would have been really disheartening.
I appreciate all the work xoxo does and I recommend this rescue to those who are looking to adopt
Great group of volunteers who work very hard to save countless lives!
I love xoxo. They helped us as fosters and then, of course we adopted! Great people-big hearts!
As someone who has worked hard and long with this company I can promise you there is NO proffit here. They takenin dogs nonone else will help. They do Heartworm treatments, MRIs, ultra sounds, xrays, surgeries of every type. Othopedic, cancer, eye surgery, mange treatments and even long term hospice just to touch on a few expenses they use those adoption fees to cover. We are full of amazing volunteers who pour our blood sweat and tears into saving as many lives as possible.
Love them!!!!! Rescued so many endangered animals.
I adopted my Dog from XOXO Pet Rescue last year. The dog was a sweet shepherd mix who had gotten over a severe case of Demodex Mange. After searching through hundreds if dogs on petfinder. I found the perfect match for our family! I contacted the rescue through the site and within a few hours was directed to their website. I filled out an adoption application and had some trouble with my vet refrences at first. My current dog that I had was 2 months late for a HW test and prevention. So I was DENIED at first. I made an apt for my dog right away and got her updated. I called the owners of the rescue and begged for a second chance. The rescue confirmed with my vet. The next day or two, a volunteer came to my house to do a meet and greet with my family. They pointed out some weak spots in my fence and then helped me fix the holes! I completed the adoption contract and was provided with all her medical paperwork. Even though this rescue spent 1,238.78 (I added all the bills together ) I was only charged $150. And she was spayed!
I plan on adopting from Xoxo Again!
