Review for Hero Dog Rescue Inc, Cumming, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Back in late 2017 and early 2018, my partner and I decided it was time to add another dog to our home. We put in applications with a few rescues.

Hero Dog was one of those rescues. While the dogs we initially expressed interest in were already adopted or weren't quite a fit, the volunteers were so welcoming and understanding, they helped us get in contact with other fosters who possibly had matches for us. We were able to discuss what we were looking for and set up meet and greets.

The volunteers are compassionate, understanding and truly devoted to rescue. You will find nothing but inspiring dedication in this rescue and their volunteers.

We adopted our pup from Hero in 2018. He is silly, energetic, playful, loving and has a personality that fills a room. He got my into agility and I can dock dive with him!

I have Hero Dog to thank for uniting us, for rescuing him (his mother and the whole litter). He has taught me a lot and I wouldn't have that growth without Hero Dog.

I can't recommend them enough.

Review for Angels Among Us Pet Rescue, Inc., Alpharetta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In 2015 I saw a picture of the derpiest dog I think I had ever seen. He was wearing a tie and his tongue was out in this goofy, silly manner. On his post, the organisation said he needed a foster. I had fostered for a few years at that point but not with Angels. Something about him...I just had to apply to foster, even if ultimately I wouldn't be matched with him.

I think the day I applied I was contacted by the foster team and they scheduled my home check. I will never forget any of those women; the woman who approved my foster application, the woman who did my home check and then the woman who contacted me to set up my pick up of my new foster. (Which turned out to be the dog I applied to foster! He absolutely was the goofiest dog to ever live and love.)

The volunteers were kind, knowledgeable, empathetic, compassionate, humorous and personable. Everyone I have met in this rescue was and still is a tremendous part of a dedicated network of men and women committed to rescuing animals. But not only are they committed to rescue, they are committed to each other and the ├žommunities in which we all live. They stop at nothing to help those who need it. Whenever any of us need help, advice, support, someone to chat with or vent to, there is always someone there, it is true empathy and understanding.

I have fostered a lot of dogs through Angels. I remember every one of them. It is a meaningful and rewarding experience I wouldn't trade for anything. Let there be no doubt though, Angels is more than just a rescue for companion animals. They are a community for each other, for others, for the animals of course, and for the dream of a brighter future.
