Whoever is responsible for emailing is very unprofessional. Was trying to adopt a kitten to accompany my current kitten. After them telling my my kitten needs more shots, I promptly take him to the vet and get them (the vet said he is very well taken care of). I send them an email telling them my cat is up to date along with the vets name and phone number to contact them to confirm. I didn’t think there would be any problems seeing as this was the only reason they had denied me. I was wrong. They then ask me for proof he has had shots before then. I send over those records. They then reply with a sassy email saying I am still denied because I recently took my cat to the vet rather than when I first got him. Ridiculous. I see other people are having similar problems so it seems like this is a recurring issue with them. Hopefully they will one day let those poor kittens/dogs be adopted into a loving home.
Tried to adopt two (what were thought were) kittens from this shelter. I have never experienced such shady unprofessionalism in my entire life. 30 minutes after emailing us our application approval, we received another email with no explanation that the foster mother was "not comfortable" with the adoption. The foster mother had no basis for this decision other than our approved application which told her that we are two men living together trying to adopt. I am trying my hardest not to imagine this as an instance of discrimination, but we never received a contrary explanation from the shelter or the foster mother. To make the situation more shady, we later discovered that the pictures of the cats on the shelter's website were also posted on the foster mother's facebook OVER 2 YEARS AGO, meaning that the shelter knowingly falsely advertised their cats to make them appear less than a year old. Then, the shelter tried to make US out to be liars because we originally only wanted to adopt one cat but eventually decided to adopt the sisters together (per their recommendation). These people are scam artists and not interested in placing cats or dogs in loving homes. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere.
After dealing with the loss of my dog, I decided to adopt again. After applying, it seemed that everything checked out, including my references. However, they TRIED to make me out to be a liar when it came to the preventions and vaccinations that I purchased for my now deceased pet. I sent proof of everything and didn't get a reply. Luckily I was able to adopt not one, but 2 adorable dogs from a different shelter. Shame on yall for denying this animals potential loving homes. You suck!
Applied to adopt a cat before even allowed to see it. They check everything. Way too much if you ask me it’s ridiculous. But ok, I played along. I really fell in love with a kitty. They checked all previous medical records of our pets. Despite spending over $2000 trying to save our previous cat they denied us because our perfectly healthy, up to date on shots dog has not been at the vet for a while.
The way they handle adoptions those poor pets will sit there forever! It’s just sad
Review from Guidestar
Please consider asking for full disclosure of your pet's health history before adopting. Our puppy had a skin infection, hook worms, round worms, and 2 other intestinal parasites (one being giardia which can infect humans). He also had a tick. He had been in foster care for a month and nothing had been done for his health. No one told us anything about him being ill. When I emailed my complaint they refused to return my call. We are now $1000 in on vet bills and meds and we've had our puppy 3 days. Please consider other options first.
We met out new family member - Macey - at AniMall. We instantly fell in love with her and wanted to make her a part of our family. Her foster mom at 2PawsUp was fantastic and had given her a terrific home for several months. We were wondering how she would do with our existing dog, and 2PawsUp was gracious in letting us having several "play dates" with the two dogs to ensure that they would get along. And they do! The adoption process was professional and made us feel comfortable in the entire 2PawsUp organization as one dedicated to the well-being of all needy animals.
We have been fostering for 2 paws up for over a year now. We can't express how fulfilling it is to know that we are helping to rescue animals on death row. 2 paws up really works hard to make sure that every home the animals go into is a good fit for that animal. We hope to be working with them for years to come.
This rescue is amazing and has saved a TON of lives! They really have a passion for raising awareness and rescuing as many animals as they can! Nothing gets in their way of doing what they believe is right for their kitties and doggies. And they should all be proud!!
What a great rescue to work with! They are an amazing group of girls committed to saving animals in NC Shelters! Way to go 2PawsUp!!!
This rescue group appears not to have the funds necessary to pay for their vet bills. Please be careful and get everything in writing - volunteers have been stuck with vet bills.This happened to me-$500.00 Better yet, move on to a rescue with proper fundraising and financial management skills.
