We just adopted our 6th labrador from them and we did a lot of research. For these career oriented people and highly educated they accomplish many good things. They have police officers on board and they are very professional very busy people. They also have two humane investigators. They are ethical and just great people. They rescue the owner surrenders locally as well ,and most rescues that want fast turn over for fast funds will not save our poor local dogs. We cannot say enough about these great people

Did not find the review from cutofflady helpful I contacted the rescue as I work for a non profit and they pointed this dog out to be a dog by the name of Allie and min pin mix. This little dog is sweet and has been readopted to a compassionate family. The dog came back smelling of cigarette smoke and this lady said she discovered that she does not like dogs! Thank god this dog came back immediately. The rescue does give credits for six months but would not readopt to this lady and she is on a DNA list. FPALR is an excellent rescue and they save many many dogs!

Review from SamCar1 is not helpful! Does not serve any purpose! This is a rescue and this person seems to think they are better than anyone including the rescue vets. I am an adopter and pointed out this review to the rescue as they did not know and this person adopted Libby a dog that was pregnant and delivered puppies and was a golden. This dog could not be spayed after a period of time nor could she have gotten HW treatment + this person expected the kill shelter to do a HW test...Lady shelters are kill shelters and only kill! Glad you live in your own world!

I adopted my 3d dog from this organization over the course of 14 years! Love them!
The group now is very established with a great group of people. I adopted Simba a cat and Allie a
min pin mix. Poor Allie the previous adopter decided that she is not a dog person! and made up all of these bad stories about Allie the little precious dog. Allie loves people kids and other dogs and cuddles with my cat and my Poodle! Love this organization!

I have been donating and supporting this organization for the past 14 years! Love them!
I have referred many adopters! They spay and neuter for low income and they have spayed a cat
from a woman that could not afford 300. It turns out the cat was pregnant at one time and had an infection. This person was so lucky to have this rescue , help her cat by using the services of their veterinary clinic and to pay for it. Excellent Excellent organization in many ways!

This organization is excellent in every way! They always go the extra mile and the adopters are part of the family. As an adopter and a volunteer for another organization which I have been with for 10 years , I found my pet here.
I happened to read the last two comments and asked the key people in regards to Libby - a yellow lab golden, this person was rude with the foster mom, and declined all vets as they were of different nationality and chose to use their own vet. Of course their vet loved to pocket 1000+ for the dog and did not even perform the treatment right. No organization refunds money or pays the regular vet fee. This organization refunds adoption fees and they always take their animals back. However a ridiculous person should go on the do not adopt list. The comment written by the second person is an irate volunteer who was asked to leave that runs an organization that is not even non profit or 501c3. But in any case I am sure the organization was happy to take the dog back as it was in the hands of an irresponsible person, especially if it was biting left and right and non stop!

i adopted a dog from them back in April. I had problems with the dog and never was able to contact anyone of if i left a message they never called back.. Finally I got ahold of someone and they didn't want to take the dog back Finally in May they agreed to take the dog back after it attacked my neighbors their dogs and children and destroyed my wall. They knew nothing about this dog. I am out of the money I spent to adopt this dog I would never adopt from them again
