I volunteered at Main Line Rescue until recently. It is very sad how the volunteers are nicer than the staff that is getting paid to do their job. The are extremely rude and think they are better than the volunteers. I volunteered at least twice a week using my own gas and time, and they can't treat me with some respect. I feel bad because I love the animals I met there so much, but I had to stop due to how rude the staff is. Also when you try to confront a problem with them they don't answer your emails and ignore you. Also they have the stupid color system which mean only blue people can take the dogs with a blue dot on their tag out. Once you complete 10 hours you go to orange, and you have to be "selected" to be green. Green is the top ranking and you can take all the dogs out. I don't agree with that because it is just a popularity scheme. I have seen "green people" be mean to dogs, not take them out of the kennel properly and even have the dog escape from them outside. By doing the color system they are just giving ranking orders and making the green feel inferior. Also their adoption rules are way to strict. Just because you don't have a fence does not mean your not a good dog owner. I don't have a fence and my dog is one of the happiest most loved dogs I know. It seems that they don't want these dogs to find a good home. They talk about how good they are about finding the perfect home, but i have seen several dogs come back after getting adopted. I am very disappointed in Main Line Rescue. I feel it is more about the people and the rescue getting noticed, than the actual dogs.

My husband and I have adopted two dogs from Main Line. One was a very scared puppy mill dog. We have gotten incredible support from everyone at Main Line to help our little girl and us be successful in dealing with a puppy mill dog. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the staff and Bill Smith. Yes, we had a fence check. Yes, we had our vet references checked. Yes, our other dogs came to Main Line to see if all would get along. I personally feel good that such scrutiny occurred. The bottom line is they want the best possible placement and fit for the dogs. For those that are critical or negative have lost this very important factor.
