My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Midwest Animal Rescue & Services, Brooklyn Park, MN, USA
I have fostered 2 dogs for this organization, and there is clearly no situation that they consider to be "extreme". The first dog I fostered clearly had a behavior issue. I found out that subsequent to my returning him to be fostered by other people, he bit 3 different people - 2 of them were children. They still adopted him out to a family.
While fostering the second dog (thinking the first was a fluke), I was told I could take the dog to my vet for xrays, and MARS would reimburse my vet the normal fee they pay their affiliate. Should I be surprised they haven't followed through on this yet?
I came to Guidestar looking for their 990, and to confirm the name of the executive director.
If you want to donate to a rescue organization, there are many others that are better managed.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
"case managing" two dogs who both ended up with very special needs.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Set some guidelines for yourselves.
