GEORGEANNS HOMELESS HOUNDS & FOSTER PROGRAM OF FLORIDA INC
March 7, 2010
My experience with Georgeann’s Homeless Hounds has been fantastic and I recommend anyone interested in rescue, foster or adoption of an animal use them. I adopted my dog from Georgeann after a referral from my veterinarian. She frequently rescues animals that are on their last days before euthanization. Mine was one of those on “death row”. I’ve also taken her a rescue and get updates on how the rescue is doing with her new adopted family. She’s been available by phone and in person to answer any of my questions and concerns. She’s even gone as far as helping me (day or night) with advice and a sympathetic ear when my handicapped parakeet was dying, my guinea pig was having a seizure, my cockatoo was picking some feathers and my 14 year old dogs were on their last days. This she did for free.
I’ve been to one of her adopt-a-thon’s and have personally seen how she screens prospective new owners in this atmosphere. She is VERY thorough. I did this prior to adopting my dog from her as well as spending time on the organizations website to review the conditions of the ranch and her animals.
I’ve personally witnessed her intake of rescued animals as well as the adoption of them to new families. She is consistent with the handling of both situations.
Anyone fearful of meeting Georgeann off the ranch premises but always in the same public place (Hardee’s in Weeki Wachi) need only ask her about previous experiences when it was allowed. After 2 years dealing with Georgeann (Homeless Hounds) I no longer question this practice and, to this day continue to meet her in the same place. Management is familiar with her and has dealt with her situation the whole time I’ve known her. By the way, they make yummy shakes for my trip home.
I again express to anyone using this blog to see how Georgeann’s Homeless Hounds operates know that I will never use another organization. She came highly recommended to me and I continue to pass that word on.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the adoption and rescue of animals in need.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
offer more of my time.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
how easy it is to deal with them and how honest they have been with me.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
I've met one of the veterinary technicians that attend to animals on their ranch as well as board members and volunteers. All have been knowledgeable about the practice and have shown empathy and concern for the animals.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Save all of the homeless and needy animals.
Ways to make it better...
I could have donated enough to heal all of their injured and special needs animals as well as keep them operating for as long as there are homeless animals.
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
finding enough money to care for their animals and finding enough people willing to provide a forever home.
One thing I'd also say is that...
I am so pleased with my experiences with Georgeann's Homeless Hounds and recommend them to everyone caring to provide forever homes.
