I reached out to this organization yesterday thinking this could be exactly what I need. I'm currently in need of a temporary foster for a few months while I try to get out of my lease to move to a new place that allows pets. After my divorce I lost everything and I was homeless for over a year while my kids and their dog lived with my ex husband. After getting back on my feet my daughter was able to come live with me but the place I can afford does not allow pets. Recently, my ex husband has abandoned our dog and I have done everything possible to keep the dog as she has been a member of our family for 11 years. I am out of options and thought I was lucky that I found this organization. When I explained my situation via e-mail the response I got was unhelpful and blatantly judgemental of my situation. The woman who emailed me back said "How did the dog end up with your husband anyway, and not with you and your daughters if you and they were that close with the dog." And "A lot of very bad decision making here and the poor dog and kids are stuck in the middle." She also concluded her e-mail after offering no help with "I'm not a social worker." I came to this organization for help as a last resort. I do not need a social worker or advice on anything but what I can do with my dog. I am appalled at the way this organization treats people who are in need of help. I feel hopeless as I do not want to give up our beloved pet to a shelter.
