Review for Dogs on Deployment, Escondido, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My wife and I have been foster Mom and Dad to dozens of dogs over the last decade plus. A couple of years ago we joined Dogs on Deployment as a foster family. I'm retired Navy. We've brought several dogs into our home for DoD, and helped many military members avoid leaving their dog at a shelter. We've experienced adventures and challenges along the way, but our involvement in DoD has added new color to our life's tapestry.

I CAUTION YOU to take another review with a big grain of salt. A few reviews after this one (written October 2015) you'll see someone who gives DoD only one star. Several things about that review are completely in conflict with DoD's primary mission, and the review has a decidedly "canned" feel to it. I would ask that the reviewer please contact Dogs on Deployment, because I believe that person was in some way misled by someone not part of DoD. After having fostered nearly 50 dogs in my life, I've found DoD to be among the most well run organizations I've seen, with integrity beyond reproach. I cannot see that what the reviewer wrote can possibly be the whole story.
