After applying to adopt an animal, we were informed via a facebook post that our application had been denied. No real explanantion was given but it was implied that we were denied because we had no vet references. ??? How would we have vet references if we had no pets? Furthermore, if we did, wouldn't that raise the question as to whether we altready had too many pets? I understand that applicants must be screened, and it is a good practice, but the nature in which our application was handled was horribly unprofessional. The individual who made the post identified themselves as the "director". The text and verbage was very condescending and patronizing, suggestiong that we go to a "kill center" where applicants are not screened as thoroughly. We were only trying to do the right thing. We had looked at buying a bred dog, but decided that there were plenty of animals that needed a good home that we are willing to provide. We would rather have spent our money on the adoption fee and make a donation to Proverbs pet rescue with the diffrence of what the bred dog would have cost us. There seems to be a self righteous, holier than thou attitude associated with this organization. As if they are somehow endowed with the moral authority the dictate to the rest of the world who is and isn't worthy of pet ownership. They have created some sort of private bueracracy that is not serving them or the animals very well at all. They claim to be non profit, but I just wonder if someone among their ranks isn't making some money.... No wonder there are so many homeless pets in the world, people like this are forcing them to stay in "foster" care.

Proverbs 12:10 is an incredible animal rescue program that has held an adoption event EVERY Saturday since 2006 at a pet supply store in Bellevue, TN. They currently place over 700 dogs and cats annually. They are known locally for accepting sick or injured animals declined by other rescue programs due to the cost veterinary care. The animals are placed in foster homes so they are socialized and assessed before placement into their permanent homes. They have 1 paid employee and the rest of the work is done by volunteers. That is simply amazing.
