TENNESSEE BIG FLUFFY DOG RESCUE Reviews
Think twice before you foster with this rescue..especially a dog with medical issues. I love this dog but this rescue has put a bad taste in my mouth. 4-6 weeks has turned into 5 months and counting, still denying their dog heartworm treatment after entangling 2 vets. (one of which has the meds and is willing to do it at cost) The rescue told us to find a second vet, because the cost was too high at our vet (we called our vet, they had not heard from the rescue). We got an email demanding the dog be at a location at 2:30 in the morning for pickup via email less than 36 hours before the meeting time, they could have given more notice and a respectful phone call would have been the proper form of communication. They denied vet visits when the dog had been throwing up all over our house for 12 hours straight (they sent meds a week later, showed up crushed because they sent it in a regular envelope). They then called us to ask if we could take another dog from them. (We were told their dog was supposed to be a one dog household they responded that they had no clue we still had him). Can it get any worse, probably: Recently they finally approved our foster dog to have some tests run. Some came back suspicious (could be a highly contagious bacteria in his stool) The rescue would not pay for the additional tests (~40 dollars) to make sure he would not infect other dogs he came into contact with. (we payed for it out of our own pockets, as well as other meds for his on-going ear infection the rescue refuses to pay for)
