I have adopted 3 dogs from this group. My first was a wonderful cocker who sadly passed away at a way too young age/ the whole experience was easy and full of nice people to relate to. When I was ready, we adopted our cocker/retriever mix/ Again a wonderful experience full of knowledgeable, caring volunteers and lovely dogs to choose from. At that point I decided to help them out and became a volunteer, coordinating adoptions in Maryland, Delaware etc. I also fostered and did homechecks for them etc. The whole organization really cares for the dogs in its care. They do whatever the dog needs medically prior to adopting them out to good homes and caring families. Some dogs need major surgery and care. Some are healthier when we get them in. It was that, that led me to start fostering sick dogs, usually with heartworm disease that needs treating, or heart issues etc. And long term, that led me to my third OBG dog! A little girl who had heartworm, but also had glaucoma and was blind in one eye and had Juvenile cateracts in her other eye. This group paid for the best treatments to get this dog comfortable and adoptable. Whatever it takes they will do. Training for those that are in need of professional help. Medical care. Whatever it takes. This group will do what they can for both the dogs (who are rescued for life and can come back at any time if the adoption doesn't work out) and for the adopters to pair up with the right dog for their family. A heartwarming wonderful group of fantastic volunteers!
