Review for Kanawha-Charleston Humane Association Inc, Charleston, WV, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I would give ZERO STARS if that was an option. Horrible place. Horrible staff. DO NOT support this shelter. Don't donate. They had reputable rescue offer for Hank an English Bulldog. That rescue would have spent whatever was necessary for his care. Instead they literally lied to the rescue, claiming the dog was on hold for a court case and could not be released. Then within an hour, they killed him. This was AFTER a local veterinarian REFUSED to euth Hank for them (confirmed with vet that they refused to euth). Clearly the dog's condition was treatable if a vet refused to euth. Go read the comments on the original thread. Former employees telling their experiences. Staff change needs to happen at this shelter. Original post: https://www.facebook.com/shane.snyder.54/posts/2517369038302428

Review for TLC Rescue - Teresa's Legacy Continues Inc, Clearfield, KY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This small but determined rescue does great work. They have a fondness for hounds and mixed breed dogs. The dogs always get whatever medical care they need.

Glad Dogs Nation is a wonderful organization that supports so many rescues and shelters with such a simple and delightful concept...bring a little happiness to a homeless pet and recycle as part of the process! Love it! Love their work!

Review for A Reason To Believe Animal Rescue, Inc. (ARTBAR), Lenore, WV, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a dog rescuer with 15 years experience and have gotten to know Jessica White (who runs ARTBAR) over the past several years. To say she is the real deal is an understatement. She is in this for the dogs all the way. She likes to save old, sick, and injured dogs...the ones many rescues don't have the desire or ability to help. She has a medical background so is able to provide them with capable aftercare should they need surgeries or treatments for things like mange. She is very choosy about her placements and collaborates well with other animal rescue organizations.

ARTBAR is located in a poor, rural area of southwestern WV where dogs run as strays, get shot, get hit by vehicles, get dumped on back roads near coal mines, etc., on a regular basis. I have visited there in person and have seen what they have to work with.

I have seen ARTBAR save dogs that were shot and spend thousands on their care. Dogs that suffered horrible abuse and weren't expected to make it (one with his brain exposed), yet Jessica managed to save them in collaboration with her vet. Her determination is unmatched, as is her compassion. She found a dog poisoned with antifreeze. It was too late to save him but she had the vet run all the necessary tests to verify and eventually held him while he crossed over and cried like he was her very own pet. She is one of the most compassionate rescuers I've ever met, but also understands all rescues must work within the physical limitations of what they can handle. She's the kind of person who will stop her vehicle to help a turtle cross a road, climb through abandoned buildings to catch moms with puppies, feed a stray dog for weeks until she can coax it into her vehicle, and do everything that can be done to save a dog's life. She also helps out other domestic pets that cross her path from time to time and has been known to save injured wildlife and transport it to a licensed wildlife rehabilitator for care and hopefully eventual release.

If you live in or near Mingo County WV (southwest of Charleston on the KY border) and would like to foster to help save lives, this is a great organization to collaborate with. ARTBAR always needs good foster families who are dog savvy and can keep foster dogs indoors. I highly recommend volunteering for ARTBAR and/or financially supporting this very deserving organization.

Review for A Different Breed Animal Rescue, Dallas, TX, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Since I can't give zero stars, I'll have to give one. But it's really zero for leaving a mother dog behind to be killed (she is now dead) so you could take her pups and make a profit off them. That's called dog flipping and it is NOT rescue.
