RESPONSE TO REVIEWS: DISNEY426 adopted a one-eyed 13 year old pooch. She raved about the dog and continually posted pix saying how in love she was with her. Out of the blue I get a call that she wants to dump the dog - why? She's getting MARRIED! Last I saw, married people can have dogs. ROCKMOZART13, I did send an email but never heard back. Perhaps it went into your spam folder. If I'm not mistaken, you were interested in Frankie. Sorry it didn't work out. MRSJO37, nothing is more aggravating to any rescue than hearing the words, I'm having a baby so I'm dumping the dog back on you. Especially when you adopt a 3 month old puppy and send back an unruly, untrained adult. If you adopt a pup and he develops issues - that's on you. It's up to you to train properly.

This woman that runs this shelter is insane. She is indeed full of lies and manipulates in order to make herself look good to her followers. Stay far, far away. She's a complete stalker and completely off her rocker. If anything happens in the future where you can no longer keep your pet for whatever reason she will tell complete lies and bash you to the public. It's actually scary how delusional she is. Go elsewhere!
I tried to contact this group on several occasions while trying to adopt a dog. I filled out their application, and never got a response. I tried several more times and finally got a response via facebook. I never received any confirmation that they received my application or any response when I resubmit my application. I was patient and understood they were busy but after a month of trying to speak to someone, I never received more than a two line message via Facebook. Avoid this group if possible.

PLEASE DO NOT ADOPT ANY PETS FROM THIS ORGANIZATION! THEY ARE A FRAUD! VERY UNPROFESSIONAL! THE COORDINATOR OR MANAGER WHO RESPONDS TO ALL THE EMAILS & PHONE CALLS TELLS MANY LIES! SHE IS NOT THAT KNOWLEDGABLE ABOUT DOGS! SHE GAVE US A PUP & TOLD US IT WAS ONE BREED & THEN WHEN WE HAD TO GIVE HIM BACK B/C WE ARE EXPECTING & HE IS NOT GOOD WITH SMALL CHILDREN, SHE POSTED A VERY NEGATIVE DESCRIPTION OF CHAMP'S PREVIOUS OWNERS! INSTEAD OF HER POSTING MOSTLY ABOUT HIS CHARACTERISTICS, SHE DEFAMED OUR WHOLE DEMEANOR! WHY WOULD SOMEONE WANT TO ADOPT A PET FROM READING A POST LIKE THAT????? SHE SAYS THAT CHAMP LISTENS WELL, BUT THEN SAYS THAT HE NEEDS TO BE IN AN ADULT HOME, IF HE LISTENS, THEN WHY ISNT HE GOOD TO BE AROUND ALL KINDS OF PPL...WHAT ABOUT HOW HE IS WITH OTHER PETS???? SHE DOESNT LIST THIS! THAT IS B/C SHE IS VERY UNPROFESSIONAL PERSON TO DEAL WITH & RACIST IF YOU ASK ME! SHE GAVE CHAMP TO US KNOWING THAT WE HAD NEVER OWNED A DOG/PET BEFORE & THEN TURN AROUND & SAY THAT HE IS NOT FOR NOVICE OWNERS! SO WHY DID YOU PLACE HIM WITH US??? SHE WAS TRYING TO GET RID OF THE PUP & GET THE MONEY! WHICH WE PAID $250..NOW SHE IS POSTING THAT HE IS A DIFFERENT BREED FROM WHAT SHE ORIGINALLY TOLD US, & I AM QUITE CERTAINT THAT SHE WILL BE UP THE ADOPTION FEE! SHE NEEDS TO REWRITE THAT DESCRIPTION OF CHAMP TO TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT HIM!! WE HAD HIM FOR 2 YEARS, PUT HIM THROUGH TRAINING, ETC! HE IS VERY AGGRESSIVE WITH PEOPLE & PETS PERIOD! WE TRIED OUR BEST TO MAKE HIM FIT IN OUR FAMILY, IT DID NOT WORK OUT! BE VERY CAREFUL IF YOU ARE THINKING OF ADOPTING FROM THIS AGENCY! I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND IT! WE WERE MISINFORMED & NOW THE PUBLIC IS BEING MISINFORMED ABOUT THIS DOG!!
