Review for In Our Hands Rescue, Bronx, NY, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I was approved for adoption. I went to an adoption event where they listed labrapoodles, goldenpoodles and different breeds of mixed poodles. When I arrived I was told that the there were still some large breed puppies available. I asked how much the adoption fee was for the puppies and they told me $1500. As I was looking around i saw a standard poodle. When asked about her I was told she was a breeder dog and that she gave birth to some of the puppies. Again I asked how much she would be and I was told $1500. Also I was informed that all they accepted was cash or Paypal. This standard poodle was a mess. Dirty, not well taken care of, she was walking funny and she needed vet care. Didn't know if she had shots or not. The excuse they gave me was that she was transported in a crate and stiff. This poor dog needed care. I was willing to adopt her and take her to the vet. I figured between vet care and grooming it would cost me $1000-$1500.. I am writing because I have adopted from the ASPCA, North Shore Animal League, and Sean Casey Animal Rescue. When I adopted from them, the dog and cat had shots, medical care, micro-chipped and spayed for a fraction of the cost. I approximate that there were about 20 - 25 puppies/dogs being adopted. That means at the minimum they made $30,000 for the day. In my opinion, this organization is a "not-for profit" but I think the way they portray themselves is not a realistic picture. People would be better off adopting from organizations that cares about the welfare of a pet and not money.
