Review for A Forever-Home Rescue Foundation, Inc., Chantilly, VA, USA
Definitely beware of this horrible organization. You can be the most qualified person or family yet the pinheads on their review board can vote you down for no reason at all. My uncle, who was in law enforcement for over 20 years, worked with therapy dogs & dogs for people with disabilities, and also owned a dog the past 15+ years, recently applied for a dog at Forever-home. At the interview my uncle and the dog really hit it off, and he was told there were no other applicants at the time for the pooch. At the conclusion of the interview he was told he should get a call as early as that night and that the next step would be the procedure for picking up and payment. So this was a slam dunk right? Nope! 3 days later he gets an email from the tyrants on the review board , who for reasons UNKNOWN, denied my uncle the dog. In their denial email they stated that they had concerns and that they concluded that my uncles status lies outside of their guidelines for adoption. Well, what concerns?? What status??Their wasn't anything in the contract or discussed in the interview that caused any concerns. The gutless board has refused to answer numerous emails and phone messages. Funny that my uncle has passed reviews by 2 other rescues and is on a waiting list for the breed he requested. Guess its just our bad luck that Forever-home had the breed he wanted. If any other rescue would have been able to get this dog, she would now be in a loving forever home being spoiled with treats and toys. However she is still in the hands of of an organization that in my opinion is shameful & deplorable... and apparently, from reading other reviews, this type of incident has happened numerous times with Forever- home.
One more thing - I have noticed that on some of the reviews on this site that forever-home has written a reply....well golly gee, apparently a bad review gets you people to respond. If you have time to write a sugar coated response here, then why don't you have time to CALL people and tell them why they were denied and if possible work out the issue ??? Probably because, as one other person wrote, " You are discriminating, rude and heartless.
