BREEDER RELEASE ADOPTION SERVICE Reviews
After my correspondces with a member of this organization on potentially adopting from this organization I feel I can no longer support them in any way! I offer a great home and lifestyle and from reading the puppies bio it would seem to be a perfect fit. However they seem to have no interest in adopting to anyone under the age of 80 regardless on what would be the best for the individual dog. Below I have specific examples of what would need to change but here is some of my experience After filling out an application for a dog living in another state I was told "they are in Colorado not Arizona. Sorry." I am more then willing to travel for the right fit and would never ask to have a dog shipped. The org's name is 'Breeder Release Adoption' I obviously know where the dog comes from and have read up on what problems can come with it. I do not need a lecture before the conversation has really even begun. Even after explaining my complete history including working at a rescue and at a veterinary office I was told I likely did not have enough experience. It seems to me that they are focused on getting the dogs from the breeders, (A NOBLE CAUSE!) but feel afterwards they truely think they are the only ones that can properly care for them. After these discusions I asked more specific questions about the dog I was interested in (because they bio is non-specific) and got a less then cordial reply repeating the bio and saying I did not match up. ( How does a 26 year old professional in the animal care field not qualify for a "social puppy who loves everybody!"). They need to have some customer service if they which to increase adoptions to save more of these precious lives let alone to open the door for educating the general public about this issue. I was told "all we have to go on is your application", well no, lady, you don't because we are communicating through email now arent we. I cannot express how much the represtative worked to try to belittle and talk down to me and therefore my disrespect and dissapointment with this group. For the record I did ask her to get me in touch with someone who knew the dog I was asking about because she had not even met him! which she refused to do and then continue to tell me that some of these dogs are aggressive and could possibly kill my dog like they did one of hers. Well that my friend is exactly why due dilligence is important and I would of course have the dogs meet prior to adoption and would never leave dogs who do not know each other alone when not supervised.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
My feeling that I can no longer continue to support or recommend them.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
1) Make a more specific application if they are going to make the choice to adopt to you solely on it. Ask any questions you may need answered. 2) Have more curtesy to anyone choosing adoption and offering other suggestions for available dogs instead of saying No, being rude and driving people towards the breeders they are working to eliminate. 3) Consider individual dogs needs instead of only what the typical mill rescue dog would need in a home. If is not the right fit say so and why for THAT dog.
