I rescue and pull dogs as an individual from horrible situations and euthanasia lists in rural southern counties. This takes alot of passion, time and persistence in difficult situations and extremely heartbreaking. I've had my rescues die in my arms from the result of their previous life because they weren't rescued soon enough. I foster several months to get these fur rescues good homes and in a few separate desperate situations I networked them to CPR. On the face front, they seem so compassionate and so eager to help these dogs but they are extremely manipulative behind the scenes and serve their special interest which is making filthy lucre off flipping dogs from rural TN and taking them up to northern states to make quick profit at times $500 a dog. There cost of transporting nor vetting is nothing anywhere near what they charge adopters. Just this last year, because they are 501(c)(3) (Tax Exception) their Form 990 and annual returns are open to public inspection. Their founder is a skilled CPA. They had a revenue of over $1,100,000 and they often have nothing to little in cost for these dogs oftentimes they leave on the next available transport which is weekly. (I point out, I love all the dogs I rescue with every bit of my heart because I've nourished them back to health and try to find them amazing homes) so just imagine when you've networked your fur family babies into a "compassionate rescue" and you never hear anything about them ever again. Absolutely no updates on my kids that I put so much love and time into, no compensations (ethical rescues ALWAYS compensate fosters, whether it be in dog food, their clothing, shampoo, medicine, etc) absolute cut off from all CPR representatives and even their founder just because I was inquiring about the homes where my rescues were adopted to. No pictures, no communication and blocked by them all. (They are well known to avoid and do this with anyone who isn't waving money in their face to adopt "their" dogs.) Meanwhile all their paid representatives share these amazing stories of how their adopters reach out to them showing them loving photos of their new fur babies and how grateful they are that CPR helped them. I soon found out they made over $7,000 on just my rescues alone and had them in their care just under two weeks. I've networked dogs into several rescues and CPR is by far the most deceitful and non-transparent 501(c)(3) I've come across. They are truly abusing the dog shortage in the north and using a loop hole in the rural south of homeless and over bred dogs to profit gains that are no where near what the costs of doing this is. Their hearts are not in these dogs, but cashing in on the adorableness of puppies and oftentimes made up sad stories that are intentionally designed to sell them. They are one of the abundance of dirty rescues out there and they need to be thoroughly investigated.

My husband and I made several attempts to find out where our $100. donation check went as it was not cashed. We tried the email on the site, Facebook messaging to no avail. I made a comment to an administrator concerning the uncashed check which at that point, I was frustrated after receiving no responses. I was called "rude and unkind". Basically, I just commented that it was too bad that they couldn't find my check or respond. My husband even offered a resend if needed. It was also from our IRA and we could have been penalized. This administrator took it upon herself to condemn us as rude and unkind people for wondering where our donation went. I had been an active volunteer several years ago, had adopted my dog with CPR. I remember climbing up and down those van steps and walking dogs and taking Adivil for my back when I got home. This is the thanks I get . My husband and I are "rude and unkind". I am so heartbroken to be treated this way, and I pity the animals that have administrators who are so cruel to people who want to help. I said "please remove me from your volunteer list" as you don't need my donations or me. Very sad. As they say, "dogs are more loving than some people."

Companion Pet Rescue is wonderful to work with from a rescue standpoint. They use their resources to their full pontential and they follow through on their commitments. They are professional, polite, respectful of the work of other rescues. When they rescue a litter of puppies they rescue the mom too, regardless of her health. They never hesitate to give sound advice to smaller rescues, they are always approachable and generous. The officers who make all of the decisions in terms of governance are hands on with the animals so their decisions are made with knowledge and with concern for each animal as an individual.
