Review for Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue, Hickory, NC, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

What a TERRIBLE ORGANIZATION. I mean, I understand the frustration, but this is how one of the board members and coordinators talks to people/volunteers on their google groups form for all volunteers and foster homes. VERY SAD.

Written by Sonya, coordinator:
I feel like this rescue is crumbling out from underneath me!
If you can foster either of these 2 dogs please email me privately. I really need to find somewhere for them to go by Thursday.
I leave Friday & you guys, I REALLY cannot do rescue while I am away. I simply cannot. So many people seem to throw their husbands in my face, so I just want to say for mine that he puts up with more than I can even explain or that most of you understand & I refuse to let rescue ruin our 1st vacation in 5 years. I am sorry to sound harsh, but I am stressed, overwhelmed & just a little pissed off right now. I hate feeling this way b/c it is not me, I feel like I am going to EXPLODE!!!!!!!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

They are terrible. They are unorganized. They don't always take back returned dogs in a timely manner (which all other rescues do). They browbeat and yell at their fosters and volunteers. They do not do required legal paperwork as required by the State of NC. They do not manage their finances. They are a singularly awful organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Everything. They need new board members, new management policies, new volunters policies, new everything.
