Review for Allies Haven Animal Rescue, Fort Worth, TX, USA
I lost my husband of nearly 38 years on July 24, 2017 to cancer, and then lost my precious 12 year old Chocolate Lab Maddie very unexpectedly to heart issues on October 12, 2017. To say I was lost, is an understatement. Allie's Animal Haven came into my life in January, 2018, and then on February 1, 2018, they gave me hope and brought me happiness again when I adopted sweet Reba! This beautiful girl came to me already housebroken, trained, healthy, and a little bit spoiled! That's ok though, I've enjoyed spoiling her even more because she deserves it! I've learned the importance of adoption and giving these wonderful, deserving animals a second chance at life with a deserving family. I joked with my family and friends that the adoption process was almost like adopting a human, because the vetting was very detailed and thorough. I had to give a complete, detailed history of my prior pets, my Veterinarian was contacted to make sure I was a responsible pet owner, and my home and back yard were inspected to insure a safe environment for "Reba". Allie's isn't just interested in finding "A Home" for their rescues, they insist on finding the BEST HOME for these deserving animals. Not everyone gets approved, and I'm sure that's caused hard feelings, but again, it's about matching these sweet animals with homes and owners that are better equipped to give them the best life possible, for their entire life. I'm extremely grateful for the amazing staff of volunteers who work tirelessly to rescue, rehab, and rehome these beautiful, loving creatures who deserve far better than what they've been forced to endure.
