I saw five star ratings on Yelp about this place. I couldn't believe it. NO. I tried adopting a dog I saw online. I applied, and for a week of being strung along, thinking I had a chance, all of a sudden I was told that I couldn't adopt the dog because another party was interested. Also, I found out about the policy about not moving a dog from one "foster situation" to another "foster situation." I'm moving to my new townhome on the 14th/15th. I was either going to have my parents look after my new dog or have them hold the til I moved in so it would be a really nice transition. I thought I was being responsible by providing accomodations until I moved in. Apparently they used that to their advantage and strung me along for a week while I was getting more and more attached to the dog by the minute. And then poof! I can't have the dog I want and I'm being asked to compromise for some other dog that is coming in and I know nothing about. I would never recommend this place to anyone. They take forever to get back to you. I received one tiny email per day from these people, asking about checking out my place and everything, when really I didn't even have a chance due to their policy. I suffered minor heartbreak from being so excited about adopting a dog for the first time. THANKS FOR NOTHING MARS, YOU MADE THIS WHOLE EXPERIENCE THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE EXCITING/FUN INTO A FRUSTRATING HEARTBREAK.
