My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Animal Rescue R Us, Lodi, NJ, USA
Horrible adoption process. Don’t ask any questions or you will be automatically removed from the process....
Good morning, I sent in an application for ... on Tuesday. I did receive confirmation of the application yesterday but no confirmation as to whether she was pending or no longer available. I noticed later in the day that she was removed from your list of adoptable dogs. I would assume that she is no longer available. Instead of making my family wait the 5-7 days before hearing from you again, it be easier if you let us know now if she’s no available. Please pardon me if I’m mistaken. Thank you so much!
Response on their Facebook page after I sent the message:
To all of those that have expressed interest in our Australian Shepherd/German Shepherd mixes, please know that they have been removed from Petfinder and we are no longer accepting applications at this time. This will allow us the opportunity to review the applications that have already been received. We are volunteers, so between work and family life, this is when applications are processed. Please do not bombard us with emails and messages asking for updates. Everyone will receive some type of response either way. Additionally, if you are rude or are not a fan of our process, keep moving. We don't have time for negativity. We work our butts off to ensure that our pups get the best homes possible and as a team, we develop a criteria for each dog to make that happen.
For those of you that are not/will not be selected for this litter, we invite you to look at some of our other adoptables and express your interest in those via email at email@example.com AFTER this weekend's event. There are plenty of dogs in this world that need forever homes, and we would hate for them to be overlooked.
Thank you for your understanding and support!
The ARRUS Team
Sadly, I never received a response either way .
Worst adoption experience ever!
