SOUND PET ANIMAL RESCUE AND REFERRAL
June 22, 2009

We adopted out SPARR dog a little over a year ago. We had two dogs - they were together for twelve years, and then the fourteen year old passed away. The remaining dog seemed to become nonresponsive to almost anything we did for her. After a visit to the vet's office, he recommended adopting a dog. The vet gave us guidelines for what would work best for her, and so we decided to go with SPARR animal resuce. We adopted a small one year old male, that is very active. We wanted a dog that is good with children (two young grandchildren) and would get along with the dog we already had. SPARR had introduced us to one dog, but we found it was not good for us or the other dog. That dog became the sole pet for a young couple, and is doing great. The following month, we got out dog..... great with kids, friendly with other animals, and just perfect for us. We were glad to know that the dog had been fostered to a family with young children, and we were aware of the temperment and activity of the dog. The dog came with a clean bill of health, all shot were up to date, and the dog was VERY clean upon arrival. We could not say enough good things about this rescue. Because of the positive experience with this rescue, a friend of ours went the same route and is just as happy.

The Great!

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

Attending the silent auction. There were many other families that were present at the auction that had also adopted through SPARR.

Ways to make it better...

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

hope to secure the wonderful and caring group of volunteers.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the caring people that work diligently to place the right dog with the right family..... this makes for a forever home for the animals.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

WONDERFUL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand on it's fostering program and be able to maintain the level of care given to each animal.

Ways to make it better...

I could had adopted two dogs.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the size of their hearts ---- they really want to save every animal --- even though they know it is not possible - they still try.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I am aware that the foster families are not compensated in any way, not even for the cost of the food. They purchase the toys, leash and other necessities for each dog and they then give these things to the adopted families so the dog has familiar items.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
