This organization's business practices are deceptive. I adopted a dog for $250 that purportedly was fully vetted. Within a week my vet diagnosed her as having a genetic condition requiring $5k in surgery. The BAWF agreed to pay for the surgery if we surrendered the dog temporarily to be taken to their veterinarian. This agreement was repeated on the phone and in e-mails. We were promised the surgery would be performed by a veterinarian specialist and that we would be able to re-adopt our little dog afterwards, with whom we had become quite attached. After picking up the dog for surgery the BAWF quit communicating with us except for a 1 sentence e-mail a week later saying that the dog would no longer be available for adoption. They have not returned multiple calls and e-mails over the last 30 days. We fear our dog was euthanized. We are heartbroken. We had other options to pursue to provide this dog needed surgery. This organization should be closed down. They are an embarrassment to the state of Virginia.
