BLUE RIDGE BOXER RESCUE
October 13, 2010

Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue DOES NOT MANAGE MONEY WELL. They are fiscally irresponsible. Case in point: dog - Chaos: Taken in by Blue Ridge in March - needs surgery on both legs. Posting in May that they are working to raise money for his surgery. First surgery NOT UNTIL SEPTEMBER. But they continued to take in dogs that needed medical during this time which meant Chaos HAD TO WAIT for surgery. Let a dog live in pain or keep a dog on painkillers for four-plus months? I understand you do not want to see dogs put to sleep at a kill shelter, but it is not right at all to let a dog like Chaos suffer when you have already taken him in? People - donate your money elsewhere. This group needs a major overhaul and needs oversight to ensure they manage things correctly.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

They take far too long to get medical care for dogs in their program.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

MAJOR restructuring. They need written guidelines on how to take care of the dogs they have before taking in new dogs. And if they already have guidelines, then they need to follow them.

MY ROLE:
Donor & made a donation.
