Review for Carolina Poodle Rescue, Pacolet, SC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am writing in response to the negative comment by DoggieMomma - have you ever actually visited the farm? I am a two time adopter from CPR - two crazy, loving standard poodles. I am the 3rd and FINAL home for my 1st CPR dog. My 2nd CPR dog came to the farm heartworm positive - they started treatment and after I adopted him I brought him back for his final treatment - I didn't have to pay a dime.

I also volunteered at CPR on several occasions before moving out of state. I now help with adoptions remotely - because I wanted to continue to work with this organization who has made my life so much richer. Donna is one of the most amazing women I know and has selflessly dedicated her LIFE to these dogs. To call her a hoarder is a DISGRACE. This is a NO KILL shelter. This is a SANCTUARY for dogs who cannot be placed due to medical or behavioral issues. Donna is an amazing matchmaker.

When I applied for my 1st CPR dog I had about a 45 minute phone interview with an adoptions counselor. This isn't a local shelter where you pop in and pick out a dog and leave an hour later. CPR has a very thorough screening process - which greatly benefits the adopters and ESPECIALLY the dogs themselves. This process helps weed out the people who may not be a good fit or who may not truly be ready for the big task of dog ownership.

The staff at CPR is also amazing - they work long hours and are rewarded with love and kisses from these animals who had no where else to go.

And should I mention the Family and Friends Facebook page that is by invite only for new adopters? It is composed of an amazing group of people who are with you every step of the way in caring for your new dog - or your old dog you have had for 10 years. The advice and warmth is PRICELESS.

So in closing - anyone else who is reading this - beware of anonymous comments - people don't have the courage to say who they are and why they are complaining. They are just trying to slander a wonderful organization and it's a shame.
