I would take my two Yorkies to Pet Smart for grooming, normally on Sat Fri mornings as I have a soft heart for rescues which are at Pet Smart on Saturdays. Didn't work Ms Stone was there when we picked up the boys after there grooming. I had a look at the dogs she had there and saw a beautiful little blond Brussels Griffon/Pekingnese mix she had named Champaign. After talking with Ms Stone about Champaign and her story we made an agreement to adopt the dog but not until Ms Stone had made a visit to my home making sure that Champaign would be safe and in good hands. I was invited to the location where she kept the rescues so. I was able to see how the animals are treated and kept. I was extremely satisfied by the way Ms Stone made sure how all her animal in her care are placed in forever homes. My only complaint is the name Champaign, please. After changing her name to Cinders short for Cinderella or Cinderoo and four years later we are now living in San Diego with Cinders, Ramsey and Gatsby. I'm very happy that Ms Stone took the extra time and love to make sure Cinders and all of her rescues are placed in good home. I would rather see good homes mistakenly rejected then to see one animal put into another bad home where the animal could be harmed. Thank you Anita for alowing me to share my life with Cinders.

We recently visited an adoption event held at The Rim in San Antonio, TX. There were many pet adoption organizations present. I had been researching adopting a dog and looking at dogs up for adoption online. I had viewed a particular puppy that was being adopted out by Mutt Mums Canine Rescue. When we saw that Mutt Mums was at this event we went to look at the puppy I had been looking at online. We held the puppy and were very fond of it. We currently have three dogs, two German Short Hairs that are hunting dogs and one jindo that is the family pet. The German Short Hairs are kept outdoors on an acre lot with AKC approved kennels that are kept on concrete in a covered car park. All are dogs are very well cared for and extremely well trained. When we told Anita Stone about our dogs and their living arrangements she became instantly rude and pretentious towards us. She insisted that all dogs should be house dogs, stating that she keeps her 75lb lab and her Great Dane in her house (which in my opinion is animal abuse to keep dogs of that size as indoor pets). She was extremely malicious and judgmental towards us and blatantly stated that she wouldn't adopt to us because we had outdoor dogs and told us to go look at other adoption organizations. Anita Lesley Stone is a completely insensitive, ignorant, rude witch with an extremely skewed idea about what makes a good home for a pet. I would never recommend dealing with her organization when adopting a pet and would never wish the ill upon a dog of ending up in her shelter.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

was holding the puppy that didn't get a home.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

were friendly and helpful with the exception of Anita Lesley Stone.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

get rid of Anita Lesley Stone.

Ways to make it better...

Anita Lesley Stone wasn't such an ignorant individual.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Anita Lesley Stone and her prejudices.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I would have been the best family that puppy would have known, but unfortunately a single individuals ignorance (Anita Lesley Stone) kept this puppy from going home with a loving family.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time
