Reviews for Love To Spare Rescue & Sanctuary

Rating: 1 stars  

One lucky dog was fortunate enough to go home with us. Although they state that they will take dog back, never in a million years will that happen. If our dog had to be re-homed for any reason, this so called "rescue" would be the last place it would go. The woman who runs this place is very rude and the animals are kept in very poor conditions. We were surprised there is no oversight for a rescue organization. An animal who ends up with this rescue, might as well be receiving a death sentence. Truly, the animals are the ones who are suffering.

This sanctuary is run very poorly. The grounds are full of dog poo and mud, and the dogs are caged like shelter animals. Dogs are not well socialized or trained. This woman has far too many animals both inside and outside of her private home. There are far too many animals on premises for one or two people to manage. Many dogs onsite have been there for too many years. Many will never be adopted due to this "sanctuary" not meeting their needs. A sanctuary provides a safe, loving environment for the animals that are being helped. It is not the case. These animals are in a terrible environment. This sanctuary needs to be closed down.

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

Close it down.

We had the opportunity to see this sanctuary when looking for a new family member. We were shocked! There were dogs everywhere, including an unbelievable number of dogs inside the house running free. There were irrigation issues leaving mud everywhere. There was dog poop all over the ground where the dogs ran, and looked as though it wasn't cleaned. We expected something totally different from a rescue whose purpose is to care for dogs. This was no more than a shelter where the dogs were caged with no interaction with people. The woman who runs the place is very gruff with people and yells at the dogs frequently. It was very difficult to see animals housed in that condition.

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

Actually, we would like to see it closed down. There appears to be too many animals for this rescue to prepare for homes properly. They would stand a far better chance at finding homes in a public shelter environment.

The poor animals that are taken into this rescue are not marketed for adoption. Many of these animals have been living there since they were little puppies and now are seniors. This is not acceptable of any animal rescue. Unfortunately, this isn't really a rescue, but, rather, a hoarding situation disguised as a rescue.

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

Promote, market and move dogs into good homes. Animals should not be forced to live in a kennel their entire life.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

No

For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?
