I would not recommend this place to anyone. I was fostering a dog and had to suddenly move, they were unable to find a foster home for the dog until the day of my move when a friend of mine stepped up to foster. The dog was let outside at the new foster without a leash despite many warnings that he woudl try to escape. The dog escaped, has been missing now for 21 days. They are unable to devise a plan on their own to capture the dog. I had to come up with a plan for them. One of the helpers could not follow 2 simple rules...stay in the car...dont chase the dog. This dog is timid, wont come to anyone and no one, including myself has been able to come within 50 feet of the dog since he has been gone. He is a runner. Because of something someone else did after the plan was messed up by their helper who by the way later that evening jumped out of his car and was coming toward my nephew as if to fight him. I was asked not to help anymore and then a couple days later when I was visiting a friend in that same neighborhood I was in my car on the phone when a guy approached the car window. Keep in mind I am a lady in her 30's sitting in a car by myself when you approaches the car by himself and begins to verbally threaten me and swear at me. He tried to tell me I was not allowed in the neighborhood. I could have thrown down my choice of accusations regarding what happened during that altercation as no one was around. They strong arm and bully people. The head lady is mentally and emotionally unstable and the husband is a bully who obviously sees no harm in verbally assulting a female who is minding her own business. Yes, the guy that approached me come to find out was the HUSBAND of the president/director of this place. This place is a joke. The people in charge have no business running an animal rescue when the only plan they can come up with to capture a dog at large is to drive around aimlessly for 21 days trying to capture a dog who runs away when he sees anyone.
