BLUE RIDGE BOXER RESCUE
January 4, 2011
Will the madness ever stop? This rescue takes in a very sick pup - that is awesome, that is why there are rescues around. However, they then put him in a foster home that can't afford to feed him the quality food he requires and instead of paying for the special food (most rescues would), they browbeat their existing volunteers into donating money to buy the food. Their existing fosters already spend so much money every month on things like food, treats, flea meds (because this rescue doesn't provide it), and even having to buy a new collar and leash when their foster gets adopted for the new adoptive home because it's required by Blue Ridge. And now they want their already overtaxed fosters to buy special food for a dog. The rescue should step up and buy it.
Also, this rescue does not microchip all of their dogs. But yet they have lots of dogs get lost. Microchip the dogs. It's not that expensive. And don't say it's a money thing. There are some things you do because it's the right thing to do.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
This is NOT a good sound rescue. They are severely mismanaged.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Start all over again. Make sure they are managed properly. You can rescue with your heart without getting in over your head.
Donor & doanted money.
