Review for Bay Area Siberian Husky club, Campbell, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After our HuskyMalamute died we were beyond devastated. We'd had her since she was 6 weeks old. She died right before Christmas when she was 10 years old. All we did was cry every time we'd look at each other. We knew we couldn't replace the dog we'd lost but we knew we were very lonesome without a dog. So we started looking for another husky type doggy. We found Aria in advertising from Bay Area Siberian Husky Rescue. We have no idea why we wanted THIS particular dog but we did. We found lots of other dogs for adoption but something kept pulling our heart to Aria. We mad the phone call to BASHR and talked to Randee. She was honest about the dog and her history. She asked us all the apporpiate questions about our desire to own a Siberian. They aren't the easiest dogs to own. We insisted we knew what we were getting into; we are semiretired- someone's always with the dog; we live in snow county and have a few fenced acres... but more than that we were just lonesome for a husky dog! So Randee invited us to come see Aria but never promised it would work out. We drove 6 hours to meet her. When we met her we wanted her! She came with shots and a microchip. On the way home I modified her name to Aria Christmas. During the past 3 years we have kept in touch with BASHR via email(Randee will answer questions about dogs) and the Newletter and an employee of Randee's named Ellen. If it wasn't for what BAy Area Siberian Husky Rescue does for dogs we would have never found our girl Aria who has finally found her forever home and created unimaginalble happiness for us.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The lengths they go throught to find good homes for Siberian Huskies.

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

be completely out of time. I feel I would do exactly what BASHR already does. I get my information about the organization from their monthly newsletter and emails about upcoming and past events.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Our continued relationship via email and the news letter, Siberian Tales.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

gentle, kind, knowledgeable but very realitic about the commitment required to be a Siberian Husky Owner.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Provide for the dogs it cares for without so many hard working people having to work constantly at fundraisers. Where do they find the time?? They are absolutely selfless and they deserve 10 million bucks!

Ways to make it better...

I've had a great experience.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The never ending river of homeless Siberian Huskies and the time, energey, and money it requires to care for all of them while actively seeking good homes for them. Think of the love and care and money just one dog requires.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Our Aria was well cared for when we adopted her. She was exactly what Randee told us she was. She has grown into so much more and knows we will be her parents no matter what and that she belongs here, at home with us. Thank you Bay Area Siberian Husky Rescue for keeping Aria for us so we could adopt her.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
