Review for Gimme Shelter Animal Rescue Inc, Sagaponack, NY, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I wish I could give zero stars instead of 1. This place is a complete sham. They advertise puppies that are coming from kill shelters, and then charge a $800 adoption fee. I don't think I need to explain how astronomically high and unethical that is. My family and I went through the entire process of interviews, house tours, getting our references checked and being approved, to THEN be told about the fee. When I responded asking if this was actually the price and hoping that it was a typo, the founder responding with a horrible, nasty and demeaning attitude telling me to "do the math" that it's "not her fault that I didn't check the website" and that I "wasted everyones time." I admittingly did not peruse the website in all of my free time, as when they posted on facebook, I replied on facebook, filled out an application (which they also charge for) and was then contacted. I strongly advise everyone to stay away from this "rescue" service as their main goal is very obviously to make a buck, not to place animals in loving, caring homes. We now have two very disappointed young children, and two heartbroken parents that are trying to wrap our heads around the fact that anyone could act that crass and tactless.
