Review for Pets Return Home, Cottonwood, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I met Mark when I was transporting one of The Pets Return Home to his forever home in NM. Mark invited me to see the ranch. Of course, every time I have the opportunity to visit a rescue, I take it As a transporter, I have dealt with many rescues. I can honestly say, that Mark Happe and Pets Return Home, is by far the best I've worked with. I was so impressed by Pets Return Home, I started to volunteer at the ranch. At Pets Return Home, Mark has made sure that the dogs are comfortable. The kennel area has a covering so the Arizona sun isn't hitting the dogs. The temperature in the kennel area is comfortable year round. The kennels are kept very clean and sanitized. Each kennel is large, all of which are true, roomy, comfortable kennels. The bowls and water buckets are cleaned regularly and the food and treats are always covered. He has put a lot of thought into the design of all the areas of the ranch. There was a time I was fearful of pitbulls, never having dealt with any one to one. I feared them until I started volunteering at Pets Return Home. The very first interaction I had was with a pitbull named Nala. I was sitting on the couch, Nala came up, thinking she was a little dog tried her best to be a lap dog. All 70+ pounds of her. She is just lovable. Nala has since been adopted and doing wonderfully. I'm grateful to Mark for helping me realize that with the right training, socialization, and most importantly love, dogs, regardless of breed can be loving pets. Mark works tirelessly with each and every dog that comes to him. I know he does, because I've been there enough to have seen it. I am awed by the amount of energy and care Mark has for all of the dogs at Pets Return Home.

I met Mark Happe close to 4 years ago when I was transporting one of Pets Return Home dogs to the adopter. Mark invited me to visit the rescue. Visiting Pets Return Home was a very happy and eye opening experience. It is located in Clarkdale, AZ. After my initial visit, I have been back numerous times to volunteer. The dogs are happy, healthy, very well cared for and most importantly loved. I'm not exaggerating when I say that Pets Return Home would be a ideal model for rescues . Mark Happe is a man who truly walks the walk. He wants to make sure that every single dog that has a chance at rehabilitation at Pets Return Home is rehabilitated and able to be adopted to the right home. The dogs that for various reasons cannot be adopted out are offered sanctuary. For the years I have been going to Pets Return Home, the goal has always been the same. I was at one time very scared of pit bulls. That was until I started going to Pets Return Home. The last time I was there, I had one of the pitties her name is Nala, sitting right next to me, paw on my shoulder, so affectionate. so sweet. I thank Mark for introducing me to how wonderful this breed is. Last year, Mark and volunteers rescued 27 wolf dog pups and 7 moms. Preparations were made, all the dogs were evaluated, received health checks, any medical care needed, vaccines, neutering, and microchips. Mark made sure that every single person that showed an interest in adopting one of the wolf pups, knew about the breed and how to care for them. A lot goes into making sure the dogs get the training, exercise, play, and love they need. I write this review because Pets Return Home deserves the accolades. They operate with transparency, dedication, commitment and the love that help these otherwise hopeless dogs find their forever homes.
