My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Saving The Animals Together, Jackson, TN, USA
It seems this organization is a great resource for a lot of people and that I do not doubt. I did adopt one of their pets and I can't say I am having a great experience. STAT sends a lot of dogs out of state for adoption, my dog being one of them. I read her bio on 2 different pet adoption sites and she seemed like what I was looking for; good with dogs, good with cats, good for older adults. Now I know all these people are volunteers but it seemed getting them to respond was pretty untimely. I put in the online application and didn't hear anything for a couple days so I messaged them and eventually got a response. After a couple more days I remessaged them to see the status of my application again. In all after more time I was told I was approved. After a few brief phone calls I was wasn't told much more about her and that they didn't want me to talk to the foster (reasons I will not go into). I was told she didnt have many social cues (I figured she didn't know basic commands), but she was still a puppy. The dog I eventually picked up is not what I would have expected. They said she would be nervous - she wasn't, She made herself right at home right away, chases my cats everywhere and seems aggressive towards them, she has a extremely high prey drive, she jumps, nips, and in no way seems like a reasonable dog for an older person to have. I am trying my best to work with her so she doesn't eat my cats but I am very frustrated with it all. Because I don't think pets are expendable I hate to just say I don't want her but at the same time I feel terrible my cats are in hiding for the past month. I don't understand how this dog had absolutely no basic training/manners after living with a foster.
