Review for Trinity Rescue Incorporated, Acworth, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our Barn wanted to have a tack sale / fundraiser for a local Horse Rescue Group. I found Trinity Rescue on an internet search and made an appointment to meet them. From the moment I walked in the door, Cynthia and Joey were the most kind people you would ever want to meet. They have an amazing story about starting the Rescue and they put their entire beings into the Horses. They have an amazing family and group of Volunteers that work right along side of them and keep this operation moving forward. The Horses come first! These animals are treated with such love and care when they land at Trinity Rescue. All the folks there have amazing Patience and give each horse whatever individual attention it needs. It is quite amazing to see so many success stories and see the Before and After Pictures of the Horses they have helped. I plan on having a long relationship with this Rescue and continue to build relationships with these amazing people!

Review for Second Chance Greyhounds Inc, Douglasville, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Second Chance Greyhounds is one of the most wonderful organizations that I have been involved in. Last May, at the Atlanta Steeplechase, a big, beautiful brindle greyhound stole my heart! I couldn't get my application in fast enough! This would be our second greyhound and would be added to our home currently with three Italian Greyhounds. The adoption process was a good experience with this group. I began to see that this was not your "typical" rescue group. Right from the start, I was impressed with the work that went into these dogs before they ever become available for adoption. They are placed in a women's prison in FL for an 8 week training program with prisoners that have been approved to train with SCG. They are trained to have the manners and commands that they will need in their new homes. It quickly became apparent to me that you not only were adopting a wonderful animal but it came with this amazing family! SCG doesn't just take the time to place the correct dog in the correct home but the relationship continues long after even the lifetime of your precious pet. There are so many opportunities to get together with fellow SCG adoptees through meet and greets and they organize "adoption booths" at many events around town that you can take your dog to and hang out to promote this wonderful organization! Patti organized a wonderful greyhound festival that we attended last weekend that was just a fun day for all of us to play with our dogs, meet other greyhound owners, shop, have fun contests and a silent auction. I can not say enough good things about the organization. It is top notch from beginning to end, Patti is really making a mark on this world with this wonderful organization and helping so many greyhounds find their forever family.

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

I would like to see at least one other prison participate in the program. After these greyhounds leave the track, they enter a women's prison system in FL. There are a group of prisoners that have certified to become trainers for SCG and they each have a program they follow. The greyhounds are with them, I believe 8 - 10 weeks and they teach them their "house" manners and commands. This has a tremendous impact on the success rate of these greys after they are adopted.

Would you volunteer for this group again?
