Review for Carolina Poodle Rescue, Pacolet, SC, USA
I wouldn't even give one star if that was an option. I like, Sarah Stalions, stumbled upon this site and fell in love with the cutest little thing named Bella. The application was 18 pages long and the process was very long and painful. In the meantime my husband and I both fell in love with this cute little face, she went everywhere with me on my phone and showed her to many of our friends and family. Finally spoke with the adoption counselor and she scheduled an appointment for the next day for us to pick up Bella. We went out shopping that night and spent over $300.00 on supplies for our new little girl, including crates and gates etc. Our appt was for 2pm with a 2 hour drive one way. We set out on our journey and was so excited. We waited in our car until our appt as requested and when it was our turn, we were asked what we were looking for. We said we are here to adopt Bella and we were then told that Bella had already been adopted that morning!! I almost fell out of my seat. She said that the 11am people had adopted her and that they don't 'hold' animals. How is it 'holding' this puppy when we had an appointment to take her home!! All of their paperwork states they have the right to take the animal back at any time with $1,000 fine etc etc, well it's nice that they think of the animals, but what about the humans? We were devastated and absolutely crushed!! The drive home felt like I had suffered a miscarriage. It was horrible. 4 hours plus on the road for nothing. Bad Business if you ask me! Will NEVER consider them EVER again. We are empty nesters and wanted to adopt 2 puppies as our children have rescue dogs as well. It left such a bitter taste in our mouths that we have since gone and 'purchased' two cute little German Shepherd puppies. Such a shame to do business like that and to totally turn people off from wanting to go through the adoption process.
