Worst day ever at Big Dog Ranch Rescue,found a pup that we fell in love with as soon as we came in the door, waited our turn for people ahead of us to see Sparkle. As we were outside playing with her we told the guy showing us her that we wanted her. Then the guy showing her to us said someone who was there earlier had just come back to look at again......while we were playing with her,broke our heart! The proper thing should have been wait to see what we were going to do, no deposit left by other people or hold on pup, asked 3 workers, said they didn't take deposits or hold pups and they were still showing her. Posted what happened on their Face Book Page but they deleted it. What's is the sense of having a visitors comments if you are going to delete them so people can't read? When we called on our hour ride home the guy who answered was told what happened and asked for owner or someone in charge to call and we were told he will not have them call. I have the names out of curtiousy I will not say names, wish they would have showed us the same.......

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

It is not organized, no one was at desk, four people walked by us before they told us to sign in at podium.......not trained to handle the emotional situations, still emotional over this!

We love BDRR, they were all very helpful with our adoption process. Helping us to find the perfect match to us and our current senior dog.

A wonderful experience. Looking forward to returning. Educational as well as entertaining. The property is immaculate and the big cats look very content. Hard to believe that some of these animals had not been well taken care at their previous homes. The big cats all look so healthy and happy now!

I have 2 very big, and 1 small reason why I started to follow Big Dog Ranch Rescue!! Originally from the east coast I was excited to find any and all things BIG dog!! I attended a few events where they would be, just to see the dogs, and was always delighted by the knowledgeable and friendly folks attached to the leashes. My work schedule demands never allowed for hands on volunteer opportunity, sorry guys. Recently I have relocated to the other coast, and my only connection to BDRR has been on facebook. Everyday I get some kind of giggle or warm feeling when I see the energetic and current posts. I actually see more successful adoption posts and personal thank yous than I see requests for help. I really admire that in a dog rescue!
A particular dog caught my eye, and I felt it was time to give a hand. The website, actually the link from FB, worked beautifully, there was a clear connection to BDRR's site, and a very easy and safe to use donation icon.. that lead to paypal. After the donation was cleared, I quickly received an emailed receipt, and then I received an email from the staff thanking me, and remind me of how much they all appreciate it. No offense, but as I read it, I did mumble blah, blah, blah.. Ok another donation proper thing to do email... BUT, the next day I received yet another email, and oh man did I feel bad for my original thought. This email, thanked me even more personally. I knew because the sender (Kristen) had taken the time to look at my email address, and compliment on it. I did not get that mass email reply that most organizations tend to send out. I did feel special, and like part of their family.
Helping BDRR and helping Clyde was a lot more rewarding than that designer coffee would have ever been. Thanks BDRR for using that coffee analogy, it really made me and 84 other fans think!! And look what you guys did!!

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

I would move them closer to me.....
