Review for In Our Hands Rescue, Bronx, NY, USA
I am currently fostering a dog from In Our Hands. First of all, the dog was described to me as a "lab mix" when she is clearly a pit bull mix, but that's fine as she is wonderful and well-natured. When I first came to the event to meet the dog and take her home, they basically just handed her to me and told me good bye. All I got sent with was the dog and her leash. They never checked ID or verified that I had submitted the online application. As this is my first time fostering, I had many questions about her vaccination history, what the next steps were to get her adopted, etc. I was given a quick answer of 'up-to-date' on vaccinations and to check the website for future adoption events. When I asked if I could have a copy of her vaccination records I was told "no" because this was a privilege only of the adopter. I have had this dog for nearly a month in my home, around my family, and around other neighborhood dogs and it makes me very nervous that I can't even see her vaccination records. The dog was also spayed while I was fostering her and again, I was given one choice of date to have this done and basically no information. Luckily everything is going alright so far. The actual dog is absolutely wonderful and while I respect what this organization is trying to do by saving these animals, they really need to get the business side of their effort in order. All dogs vaccination records need to be up-to-date and accessible. And any foster/adoption families should be checked out first. I'm thankful to them for saving these animals but also very worried about the lack of care they are taking with fostering/adopting them out.
