Review for Players For Pits, Warrenville, IL, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Since Players for Pits, NFP does not allow reviews on any site they are affiliated with (convenient), I am forced to resort to a comment about my experience.

It is with a heavy heart I have to leave such a negative comment/review of an organization I was really excited to find.

Last weekend my boyfriend and I met a wonderful little pit named Pauly (currently available for adoption). He is absolutely the sweetest boy I've ever met. After meeting him we were encouraged to apply to adopt him.

After applying I followed up and received a message from someone who, long story short, refused to confirm receipt of our application, said they didn't have one for us, and basically said there are too many applications in for him. This sounded, to me, like they are more concerned about the order of applications vs. who is best suited to give this beautiful boy a loving home. I was also told to apply for Pauly's sister JWoww because we'd have a better chance of getting her.

As annoyed as I was, I let it go with hopes we'd still maybe be in the running for Pauly.

This morning I received another email from a different woman giving me allllll the hope in the world that we still had a chance.
However, I have just been informed they have a "No Renters" policy that is communicated in 0 places online - including the application survey. Which also means I couldn't get Pauly, JWoww, or any other puppy - even if I tried.

I feel as though this is a crucial piece of information to communicate to people. I have combed every site for this policy and I can confidently say I have not found it stated anywhere.
These policies should be stated clearly upfront ... if they even exist. Honestly, I don't know if these are actual policies at this point or if it just something said to disqualify people.

It breaks my heart to say this, but I am very displeased and unhappy with my experience with Players for Pits. What should have been an exciting and happy experience bringing a puppy into our family has turned into a situation of stress and unhappiness.
