Review for Players For Pits, Warrenville, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I adopted from Players for Pits almost three years ago. The entire experience was nothing short of amazing. My dog was in rough shape when they got him and they spent thousands of dollars and ignored multiple vets who told them to put him down. In the end, there was nothing serious wrong with him except malnutrition and abuse from his previous owners. Today he is healthy and happy and he has gotten me involved in the rescue community where I’ve found a place for myself and a true calling. I’ve also had a first-hand look at the vitriol rescues have to put up with from people who don’t like the way they do business or don’t like the time it takes to get back to them or are pissed that they won’t save every dog from every bad situation or have any number of ridiculous reasons to be mad, all of which are mostly petty or histrionic. Rather than use their time and energy on something positive of their own, these people channel their negativity and resentments into tearing down an organization that is run by volunteers who aren’t perfect and aren’t going to be able to please everyone all the time but are doing their best to save the most vulnerable dogs in Chicago. If Players doesn’t do things the way YOU would do them, find a rescue that does. Or create your own. But don’t tear down an organization that is saving and changing lives just because you didn’t get what you wanted. They are making a difference. What are you doing?
