Review for Chihuahua & Small Dog Rescue Inc, Colorado Springs, CO, USA
CSDR is one of the top rescue groups in the country. It is a no-kill rescue. Dogs are only put down due to severe illness. Unadoptable dogs are placed in permanent foster care. When dogs are rescued, they immediately receive health care and grooming. They stay in a foster home, and the foster parents work with them on any training issues. CSDR has rescued an unbelievable number of dogs and placed them in safe and loving homes. Many were rescued from shelters just before they were to be put down because their allotted time was running out. Others were rescued from puppy mills where they were isolated and kept in cages. The dogs do see to understand that they have been given another chance and express their gratitude in the form of affection for their new owners.
All volunteers and potential adopters are carefully checked. References are checked. A volunteer visits the home, gets acquainted with the family,and checks that the home is safe. CSDR keeps in touch with adopters after the adoption and volunteers are available to answer questions, assist with training, and give advice. A volunteer coordinator keeps in touch with all volunteers so that volunteers always feel part of the organization and supported.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Recruit more volunteers. If we had more foster homes available, we could save more dogs.
