Review for Gimme Shelter Animal Rescue Inc, Sagaponack, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This shelter goes beyond the call of duty. When I lost my Golden Retriever Beau after 16 years and had Bella still with us then, we were looking for a new friend for her since she was going into depression. Buddy was on my Facebook feed under the Rescue Me with Gimme Shelter. I knew he was seven years old and needed a home but I called about another dog at the time who was being considered by another family for adoption. Michele asked if I seen Buddy. She explained Buddy's circumstances and how they rescue him and his siblings when their owner was terminally ill to avoid going to the shelter that puts dogs down. There was no pressure from Gimme Shelter and I fostered Buddy for two weeks after a home inspection and fell in love with him and adopted. They work with the kill shelters down south and pull so many puppies to older dogs to avoid being kill. They are truly animal lovers and believe every animal needs to be loved and it doesn't matter what age they are. Gimme Shelter worked with me during a very difficult time in my life and helped me find the perfect dog who is a part of our family. They deserve to be recognized at an outstanding shelter for what they provide the animals that no one wanted or no longer wanted. They are dedicated to the cause of saving animals and I would recommend them to anyone who is thinking about fostering or adopting from them. You could save a life. If I could provide them with 10 stars I would.

Review for Gimme Shelter Animal Rescue Inc, Sagaponack, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was in contact with Gimme Shelter in December 2015 when I lost my best friend, Beau at 16 1/2 years old to brain cancer. My other Golden, Bella was alone and very lonely and needed a friend. When I contacted Michelle at Gimme Shelter they had a 7 year old golden mix looking for a home named Buddy. After the home inspection and my references checked, Buddy was fostered (to see if Bella and Buddy were comparable) for two weeks with us. I adopted Buddy and he was the best decision my family ever made. I worked with Michelle again on try to adopt a golden from the South and she was so helpful and wonderful to work with. Although the previous writer who wrote about Gimme Shelter disapproves on how picky their guidelines are; they have to be since a lot of these animals are from neglected homes and other circumstances. What Gimme Shelter has done for our family has brought nothing but happiness. Buddy is a part of our family and he has filled a void that I once thought could never happen. I thank Michelle and her team for doing what they do. They go above and beyond what an animal shelter is... they treat all they rescues as family. Would you give your child just to anyone?
