Not a good rescue. They ship in 'specialty' cats from other countries and then charge hundreds of dollars for them. Why would they be shipping in cats from other countries? It's taking away homes from all the needy cats in NJ, NY and PA. not only do they charge a fortune for the 'specialty' cats but they also don't ever adopt them out. These cats stay in the rescue for months or even years, are they saying no one wants to adopt a 2 different coloured eye Persian?! That's some bs. The cats don't even have papers or DNA tests to prove the breed. They take nonrefundable deposits and once you give it to them they never contact you back and keep your money.. The other cats are sick and doesn't have any prior medical check ups. The lock kittens in small changes and its so sad to watch. Please don't let this "Rescue" manipulate you into spending a single cent.
There is no better rescue around than Happy Homes. Elaine and her team work tirelessly to save cats and kittens and place them in loving homes. They socialize, vet and love these animals unconditionally. I met Elaine when I was in need of TNR help in my town, she helped me vet and fix over 20 cats. One of the kittens we trapped was an adorable black and white long hair. I fell in love with him and once he was of age, we decided to adopt him. The best choice I ever made. This rescue truly cares about the well being of all animals, not just cats and a rescue like theirs is hard to come by. They are meticulous with vetting, spare no expense to save a cat that would have otherwise died at the needle in a shelter or on the streets. Elaine and her team will have my business for life. When the time comes to adopt again, she will always be my first and only choice because I KNOW I will be getting a healthy, socialized companion.
I would not recommend, actually I’m very surprised that Petsmart would entertain shady … ‘business’. Happy homes is not there for right reasons. The filthy and sick animals are picked from who knows where and displayed in the store without being assessed??? Why? They wanted deposit (they got deposit) and kitty that we fell in love with had upper respiratory infection . The lady told us that kitten will be ready in 10 to 14 days. Happy homes GOT OUR MONEY never did our application ( they never called our vet or any of our references) and we were never able to get in touch with them. For 4 weeks I was trying to find out what is going on with “our” kitten… nothing!!! Not a word? I even offered to pay for a good vet myself ( I kept texting with no avail). Now, they were asking for $20 deposit we left $100 you can imagine not even as a joke did they offer to return the money. The kitten they probably sold to someone else we have no idea. If you think you are doing a good thing adopting from happy homes, think again do some research first. It’s like Cat bar different prices for different flavors a cat is a cat IF IT DOES NOT HAVE A PAPERS ITS A DOMESTIC SHORT OR DOMESTIC LONG HAIR they are charging a couple hundred of dollars more for a exotic that without a papers is just a look a like???? SHADY SHADY PEOPLE!!! We were supposed to adopt in early March and now is mid September so I had plenty of time to reflect and research … cats and happy homes. Guess what, I learned a lot about both. Since then we welcomed two cats to our family from a real rescue …. I still wonder what happened to the kitten it was newer offered for adoption on any of their platforms just disappeared from the face of the earth?? ? Shady …
Horrible horrible experience. Totally insensitive and rude. Would never ever recommend anyone give this place a penny.
Happy Homes Rescue is a wonderful organization. Beth and her staff are excellent. We recently adopted two adorable,sweet ,loveable tabby kittens,we named Marshmellow and Snickers. They are very happy and playful ,they love to wrestle with each other than cuddle for naps. They are eating well and growing. Beth is so caring and understanding she is always there to answer questions and she is very helpful . We appreciate all the time and care she gave when Marshmellow was not eating on his own he was fed through a syringe but now he eats from the bowl ,they are both happy. Beth and all the foster parents are truly Angel's on earth.
