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

Rating: 1 stars  

In Our Hands Rescue is an opaque, greedy, disorganized "rescue" organization who clearly does not have the animals they sell in their best interest.

For full disclosure, I went to a rescue event without knowing much about the organization, or that animal rescue groups in general are not regulated. I fell in love with my pup, which I paid an exorbitant fee for without being told where the funds where going and/or what they were being used for. Because IOH did not prepare enough foster families, most of the puppies (presumably from mills in Ohio) were going to be boarded. There were over 30 puppies at the event, none of which had fosters. I decided to foster my pup's sister who was sharing her crate, and was sent home with no paperwork for the foster or any funds to support fostering the dog.

The rescue would not disclose where they got the dogs, why the fee was so large, or whether or not they were supporting puppy mills.

I'm so lucky to have such a sweet dog, but if I had done proper research beforehand, I'd be very hesitant to give this group money. I fully support dogs being rescued from negative dog mill or dog auction situations should it not promote the breeders to sell further.

It seems like this group many have started off with positive intentions, but it's clear they've been greedy without concern for the dogs they're bringing to NYC without homes or fosters. Like someone else on this thread mentioned, they really need to be audited by the IRS.
