My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for A Forever-Home Rescue Foundation, Inc., Chantilly, VA, USA
First off, the adoption process is very long and tedious, and it feels like a test. When I emailed the organization regarding my interest in a dog I was told to fill out an application online and submit it by email. I did so then was told there might be an issue with my location (AFH states they serve the Washington Metropolitan area, which my county is located within), because I lived in southern Maryland. Once I was approved for a home check, the following Sunday I went to the adoption event (had to fill out another application) to meet the dog and was interviewed by a representative, with no issues; all signs pointing to our approval. Then Tuesday night got an email saying the board of directors had deemed my "status" outside of their adoption guidelines. I responded requesting an explanation, got an email saying my message would be forwarded to the b.o.d, no response. Called their number, it's a voice mail box. Emailed the corporate email saying I hoped I could resolve what ever confusion that resulted in our rejection, no response.
I'm an avid dog lover with two very happy and spoiled dogs already, my application met all discussed guidelines. From my perspective AFH had a problem with coming all the way to Charles County, MD (where I live, which is within the Washington Metropolitan area [which is where they state they serve]) and denied me a furry companion because of it.
