Review for In Our Hands Rescue, Bronx, NY, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I adopted a dog from them for $300 that they had in their care for over a month and a half. The dog had Giardia, which is from drinking water infected with feces. The dog was infested with fleas, which led to horrible dermatitis and tapeworms. The dog did not have a rabies vaccine and was not spayed or chipped.

I asked them if they would be able to help me with the cost of some of her vet bills. They said no and that I could return the dog to them without a refund.

On top of this, they are claiming that I need to have her spayed 2 weeks after the adoption. I went to an ASPCA mobile unit to have it done ( I waited hours!). They wanted to have me sign for liability since the dog had Giardia and may have been dehydrated. The vet said she couldn't guarantee how the dog would be after the surgery. That scared me so I put it off. I told what the vet said after receiving several sassy emails from them. It has been 1 month later and I have received 2 phone calls and a text from them in 20 minutes. They have emailed me threatening to take the dog from me if I don't provide a proof of spay.

This company should not be a 501c3 non profit. They are basically a puppy mill. They take advantage of people trying to do the right thing.
