PAW PRINTS RESCUE
April 22, 2011

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.

The Great!

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

a heartbreaking situation for me and many other owners who were also sold Parvo puppies. They are actually a for-profit business.

Ways to make it better...

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

Take all their animals away and give them proper veterinary care. Shut the "rescue" group down.
