Review for Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary Inc, Poolesville, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have known and volunteered with Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary for more then 10 years now. The sanctuary is a bit of paradise for animals that came from horrible situations such as factory farms, cult rituals and just plain abuse.
They not only take in animals and give them the life that they should always have had but they also educate the public about factory farming and how horrible it is for the animals as well as the environment. They really do wonderful work

Review for Your Dog's Friend, Rockville, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Where do I start. I had adopted by proxy a puppy mill dog. What does that mean? That is a dog that is used for breeding purposes to sell their puppies online or in pet stores. This dog had never been handled by humans before or if he was it was rough handling. He was scared of anyone and everyone. I tried different classes and they just seemed to make it worse. I started my own support group. I would have trainers come and talk with us or talk with us on the phone. One of the trainers is one that has her own classes at Your Dogs Friend. It was because of her that there is now a fearful dog class-which is exactly what these dogs need. Your Dogs Friend is the place you can go to when you are at your wits end and don't know where to go-like our family with our dog.
