I have volunteered for ADB over a couple of years and this is a wonderful organization. At any given time, they have 55+ dogs, the vast majority of which are adult dogs. I have seen dogs rehabilitated there and I have seen them take care of physically ill dogs. I have seen many dogs go through there and placed in forever homes. They will also take a dog back if it turns out not to be a great fit for the family.
It upsets me so much to read these bad reviews. This sanctuary is amazing. All the people are extremely knowledgeable and nice. The dogs are really pretty and loving. If you had actually gone there, instead of just watching the news, you would have seen how much they care and work for the health of the animals.
I have visited this rescue site on more than one occasion. This rescue is not a "puppy flipper". If you knew all the details, your reviews would not have been written. The woman was trying to do the right thing under the circumstances. You should be ashamed. You have affected their reputation and ability to continue the good work they do. How many of you that wrote these reviews actually checked in to it yourself fully? I did. We recently rescued a dog from this now full facility... Keep your head up "A Different Breed" and thank you for the new addition to the family. (And no, it wasn't a puppy we adopted...)
This group is not a rescue. The continually take puppies and leave mamas to die in the shelter. They are also abusive to mama dogs the have to keep while nursing. I wouldn't be surprised if once the pups are weaned these despicable creatures dump mama at a kill shelter or kill her themselves. SHARE ON YOU
Review from Guidestar
Do not call yourself a "Rescue"! You are "puppy flippers", plain and simple! If you take the nursing puppies from a shelter and leave their mother behind to be "killed", you are running a business, $$$$$. I would give you ZERO, if it were an option.
Since I can't give zero stars, I'll have to give one. But it's really zero for leaving a mother dog behind to be killed (she is now dead) so you could take her pups and make a profit off them. That's called dog flipping and it is NOT rescue.
This rescue is wonderful!! I have worked with them for 6 years now and love it! They are kind and hard working people!
First of all “nanamcclimans” leaves a review and states “ ROLE” is client served. This is actually K M - She is a friend and helper at “ A DIFFERENT BREED”. With all of your attempts to point out how ethical your rescue is why do each of you lie and cover up even the most simple of things like your TRUE names and address ???? Why don’t you admit you sit on the board and help out with the “ RESCUE “ instead of pretending to be a “client served”. That is totally ridiculous. You pull as many puppies as you can so that you can make money easier on puppies. YOU know this to be true and the rest of us do to. I would be interested in knowing how many dogs you sold last year. How many did you collect cash on, checks and then how many went thru paypal ???? I think someone needs to go thru all your adoption papers for the past couple of years and see how many did you follow up on that NEVER got spayed or neutered ????? How many dogs NEVER saw a vet because you give the dogs their shots and puts the sticker with numbers on the paper work given to the adoptive families ??? I think you have a chance here to turn your organization around and do right by the dogs and stop flipping the dogs for a profit. When you charge $200.00 per dog it should be vetted and spayed / neutered before you send the pet out. Can you honestly say you do that now ???? DO YOU ? Shame on all 3 of you for taking advantage of the system. When you truly love animals - it shows !!! You don’t show it. The “eyes” of not only Texas but others are all on you right now. I am just waiting to see what charges will be filed.
I don't care how many people try to defend this monstrosity of a "rescue." They are puppy flippers, plain and simple. If there is a momma and puppies, THEY ALL GO TOGETHER. You leave behind the mom, healthy or not, then you are responsible for the mom's death!!!! Regardless of the illness, the mom had a better chance of getting healthier sooner than any of those puppies, and had they rescued the entire family, the mom could've regained her health faster, and had nourishing milk to help the babies get better, but these greedy bastards just wanted the puppies, because PUPPIES DEMAND HIGHER "ADOPTION" FEES, AND MAKE NET MORE PROFIT.......PERIOD!!!
The stories people are spreading is absolutely not true, they tried to help the shelter find a rescue or individual the would foster mama and babies.When they received a call 3 weeks later that no one had stepped up, and that the puppies were ill, please take puppies. Mama was very ill, but they wanted to try and save the babies. So with a heavy heart they accepted the babies, all which would have died within 2 days. These babies were not eating, full of worms, white gums, and green snot, it would be a miracle if any survived, well they are surviving and starting to grow, but still have a ways to go.2-3 days later they heard that the mom was so ill and with no one able or willing to take care of her, she was euthanized . If it wasn't for the help this rescued provided, the whole family would have dies. Where was all the other rescues? Why didn't they answer the call? and now this rescue is being harassed. These people truly love their animals and it show in the animals.
