Review for Carolina Poodle Rescue, Pacolet, SC, USA
I have not adopted from Carolina Poodle Rescue however, I am an approved adopter and during that process I realized that I would truly love to be a part of this organization. Just as the adoption process is a very strict and in depth approval process so is the process to become a volunteer. Donna Ezzell, her staff and volunteers invest an enormous amount of time, compassion and money in the dogs (and very often cats) that are placed in their care. They do not take the lives or health of these animals lightly. Very often thousands of dollars are invested in returning these animals to good health (medically, emotionally and behaviorally) before even making them available for adoption. Most of the rescues they take in have many issues that have to taken care of. So many of these animals come from deplorable situations and it can take months or even years to heal them. This does not deter her from taking these animals and assuming that enormous responsibility. Donna would never place these dogs in a home where there is even the slightest possibility they would be jeopardized again and be allowed to be subjected to the suffering they have been rescued from. It speaks volumes that an adopter must agree that if at anytime during the life of that dog problems arise or they can no longer care for that animal then it must be returned to Carolina Poodle Rescue. I do want to add that my daughter adopted a beautiful American bulldog from CPR. There have been a couple of issues with him and Donna was immediately available to help my daughter address these issues with great success. He is undoubtedly a family member for life now. Donna is committed to any animal that is adopted from her for the life of that animal. I would never recommend anyone to adopt from any rescue except Carolina Poodle Rescues. There are not enough stars to rate this rescue.
