Review for Animal Rescue R Us, Lodi, NJ, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I have been waiting a while to share my story as it was just so awful and difficult to even put into words. I have been a pet owner for 15 years. I never was able to have children of my own and so my pets were/ are my babies. When my last dog passed I looked into adopting a new puppy. After a few back and forth emails I was told that they didn’t feel I was a good fit for a puppy as I was not a stay at home mother. They felt that puppies are a lot of work and time and that a stay at home mom would best meet the needs of a puppy. I was heartbroken. Not only is this down right discrimination but so hurtful on so many levels. . I wish I could be a stay at home mom and have children running around but that was not my life path. To anyone reading this you know how ridiculous this sounds. Being a great animal parent does not mean you need to be a stay at home parent. I could
Keep going on and on about this but I think to anyone who has a heart and loves animals they will understand how ludicrous this entire scenario is. Please look elsewhere for your animals there are many rescues out there who are much kinder and compassionate human beings.
