Review for Carolina Poodle Rescue, Pacolet, SC, USA
I have wanted a dog since I was a child, but my mother was never interested in caring for a dog in New York. My boyfriend and I were finally ready to get a dog and had been searching through petfinder and countless websites and rescues for "the one". It is a rigorous process and many rescues are overprotective which I do understand but I also think its important to meet a person before deciding whether or not they are fit to own a rescue dog., pushing people away just makes more people buy dogs.... which is not the point. I stumbled across Carolina poodle rescue at "Best Friends Super adoption event" in December of 2016, where I met my Buddy (my baby that I adopted from CPR) and some of the most caring people from the rescue. They conducted and in depth interview and have provided more support than I can EVER imagine, after I took Buddy home. We had found another dog from another rescue and we wanted both, they let us take the two dogs to play together while we talked to the people from the rescue about all the details of dog ownership. I have never experienced more genuine people who cared more about finding the perfect matches for these dogs. Donna, who runs CPR, was also amazing in the process. As a first time dog owner, I had a lot of questions, I was instantly connected to Buddy's foster mom who had him for a while before me. She works with the rescue a lot and gave me such amazing support. The woman who interviewed me also let me call her on her personal phone, because she saw that I was nervous, I wanted everything to be perfect for my Buddy, and because he was found as a stray, it is hard to know much about his past. CPR even has a facebook group which a beautiful online community of CPR adopters and volunteers who support each other positively through thick and thin! I really could not say more good things about this rescue. I am so happy they brought my Buddy to me, and I am so lucky to have such a great support system.
