Review for PAW PRINTS RESCUE, Yuba City, CA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

This "rescue" group sells dogs with Parvo. My puppy started getting symptoms a few days after I adopted him so I brought him to the vet and he tested positive for Parvo. I immediately called the "rescue" group to let them know that their other puppies (and unvaccinated dogs) may have it, and she didn't even care! She told me I could take him back and exchange him! Like he was a sweater.

Canine Parvovirus is awful. If you are looking for a dog and not familiar with Parvo, I would encourage you to look it up. This is not kennel cough or giardia, this is a deadly virus that can cost thousands of dollars and hospitalization to treat.

Rescue groups are supposed to care about animals. Please do not support what they are doing.

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?

This group has encouraged a distrust of animal rescue groups. I thought animal rescue groups also love animals, but I was wrong.
