Review for Giles Animal Rescue Inc, Pearisburg, VA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I am a former volunteer of this local animal rescue. They continue to solicit donations and contributions from the county citizens, yet they are not rescuing local animals from Giles animal shelter. The county has banned them from the shelter unless there is a county employee present. The shelter has been broken into numerous times with many items missing. The deputy's office was broken into where the euthanasia drugs are kept. A common street drug called Special K is the reason for this. They continue to state they are successfully pulling, fostering and transporting local animals from Giles shelter. This is not true. Their website is misleading. They will not release their financials to the public as requested at a Giles Board of Supervisors meeting in Feb 2013. There is no way to know how their donations/contributions are being used. The animals they promote on their website are not even from the county shelter.

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

I would strongly encourage the current volunteers to re-elect all new officers and try to work with the county again in order to gain unlimited access to the county shelter and the animals there at great risk of being put down. As of now, all goodwill this rescue had in the past with the county officials has now been squandered and lost.
