I think this group is fantastic. The fact that the shelters call them when an injured or ill dog comes in shows the respect that the shelters have for the group. I have adopted 2 dogs 1 year apart from the group and have been impressed wtih both adoptions. I would not hesitate recommending this group to anyone that asks.
We adopted out SPARR dog a little over a year ago. We had two dogs - they were together for twelve years, and then the fourteen year old passed away. The remaining dog seemed to become nonresponsive to almost anything we did for her. After a visit to the vet's office, he recommended adopting a dog. The vet gave us guidelines for what would work best for her, and so we decided to go with SPARR animal resuce. We adopted a small one year old male, that is very active. We wanted a dog that is good with children (two young grandchildren) and would get along with the dog we already had. SPARR had introduced us to one dog, but we found it was not good for us or the other dog. That dog became the sole pet for a young couple, and is doing great. The following month, we got out dog..... great with kids, friendly with other animals, and just perfect for us. We were glad to know that the dog had been fostered to a family with young children, and we were aware of the temperment and activity of the dog. The dog came with a clean bill of health, all shot were up to date, and the dog was VERY clean upon arrival. We could not say enough good things about this rescue. Because of the positive experience with this rescue, a friend of ours went the same route and is just as happy.
