Review for English Springer Rescue America Inc, Northridge, CA, USA
I learned of ESRA while reading an issue of Dog Fancy magazine, soon found that a friend was adopting through ESRA, and eventually was in a position where I really wanted and needed a springer spaniel with some special characteristics. All of the ESRA people I came across in my search were caring, understanding of my circumstances and eager to help me find the really "right" dog. They were very honest when I inquired about a dog they felt was not the right match, and went out of their way to search out the most suitable prospects for me. I felt as though these dear people had adopted me and made my search a special project. The result of my search and their outstanding help is sitting next to me right now, a beautiful 9 year old springer spaniel who was delivered to my doorstep just last evening by the ESRA volunteer who had been fostering her. His approximately 10 hour trip to make this delivery is just one example of the many services the selfless ESRA volunteers provide. Their very reasonable adoption fee does not cover veterinary fees nor the multitude of miscellaneous expenses incurred by the devoted volunteer foster parents. I couldn't think more highly of any non-profit organization.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
The special interest the volunteers took in my adoption needs, and exceptional service in delivering the dog I ultimately adopted.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Since I have had such a wonderful experience in adopting through ESRA, I do not have any suggestions for change.
