Reviews for Proverbs 12 10 Animal Rescue & Adoption

Rating: 5 stars  

This is an exceptional rescue organization! The staff is well organized, super friendly, and work endlessly for the precious fur babies. I have adopted 3 dogs from them already. I currently foster and have 2 fosters now. The animals that are lucky enough to join the Proverbs 12:10 family will NEVER know anything but love for the rest of their lives. Once a Proverbs baby .... ALWAYS a proverbs baby. Fur babies that have medical issues do not get refused or euthanized without every effort being made to save the fur baby. I have to say .... Proverbs 12:10 have blessed me with knowing angels - both 2 legged angels and 4 legged angels!!!!!

My journey with Proverbs is an exceptional one. I knew it was time to find a new dog, but I didn't realize how much work was actually done for these animals before I even looked at them. Proverbs vets them, gives them their shots, and loves them until a forever home can be found. I am thankful for this organization and their commitment to finding homes for all of the animals in their care. I would recommend this rescue 1000 times over. My Callie was rescued by them first and I am forever grateful.

I haven't adopted a dog from here but I placed a dog I found in my neighborhood with a foster from Proverbs. Leigh (the foster) was so sweet, kind, and friendly. She made the process very easy and promised to give me updates. It just made me feel totally at ease and I knew I was making the right decision. Highly recommend coming to Proverbs if you're looking to adopt a pet! The volunteers are awesome!

I adopted my Beagle from Proverbs 12:10 seven years ago. I just recently adopted a second Beagle. It's evident that the volunteers at Proverbs love the animals so much and do their best to save them from high-kill shelters. There is a large network of fosters that come to the rescue and provide a temporary home. But the goal is to find an exceptional forever home for every pet. I'm thankful for the volunteers and that they rescued my dogs so I could adopt them.

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.
