Mission: Aussie And Me Animal Rescue (AAMAR) is a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned animals, primarily dogs from high-kill shelters and owners who can no longer care for them.

I adopted a dog from Aussie and me back in mid April. At the time they seemed slightly disorganized but people with good intentions. Unfortunately i had to give the dog back as she tried to attack my girlfriend after meeting her several times and being calm with her. No fault of anyone in particular. That day i called Karen at Aussie and me and she told me to bring the dog back and i would be refunded. I have waited now for over a month trying to get in contact with the people at Aussie and me. I have only receive one text from them saying that a person in accounting would take care of it and that was 3 weeks ago. Since them i have sent multiple calls, email both standard and admin staff and also have gone as far as reaching out on their Facebook page to see if i can get my money back with no response. I don't blame the people there for the dogs actions. I blame them for the poor response in not getting me my money back as well as the lack of communication between staff members.
I have adopted four dogs from Aussie and Me. I was very pleased with the thorough applicant screening process as well as the vetting. Though the cost seemed high at first, I now understand how much cost is involved in saving these animals. It is worth it to pay for a healthy, vetted pet.
I decided to become a volunteer for Aussie and Me as a result of my adoptions. It is very gratifying to be able to help in any way.
