" I have dealt with the company recently at their Adoption Event at Stownstown in front of Pet Food Express" n 10/19/2014. To be more precise I have adopted a puppy 8 weeks old, I was surprised when after adoption agreement got signed and the puppy was handed to me I was asked to follow the woman, who first was dealing with the paperwork, as the puppy was to get first round of vaccines, so the puppy of this young age has not been vaccinated prior to the adoption event which is ridiculous as it is and I am sure would not be if not adopted. So the woman took me to a car parked nearby, another younger woman took a box out of the car of questionable cleanness then vaccines out of the box (do not remember if the box was a cooler) and administered the shots right there in the street that also seemed not right. When home the puppy vomited, I didn't take it too seriously thinking that the poor baby might be tired or not well as just got the shots. To make long story short, the pup was deteriorating rapidly and on the fourth day after adoption I took him to
hospital where the pup got tested and diagnosed with Parvo infection, Dogs' Ebola as the doctor called it to make me realize how serious it was. Parvo infection is highly contagious; the incubation period of the disease is 10 days. The pup was throwing up blood by the time. I was advised at
hospital to rush the puppy to the nearby Nor
Veterinarian Emergency Clinic as puppy's condition was critical and urgency crucial. I drove there without slightest hesitation (it was a 10 minutes drive). The doctors at the clinic told me that there still was a
to save the pup and they gave me the dollar estimate of the treatment and a first deposit of $ 1700. 00 was to be made in accord with the clinic's policy that without hesitation I charged to my credit account as the pup's life was at stake. The pup immediately got hooked up to IV machine and a feeding tube, Thanks God puppy is alive back home and under scrupulous care,, My charges summed up to $ 3749.9 I tried to contact the Company since the pup got diagnosed, however it is almost impossible to get hold of them. They never answer the calls, mail

and told her that pup was at Nor

The "Dog Savior" suggests to unhook dying pup from the systems that keep him alive and bring him to "their Vet" and she insists on that. Is this a proper practice of a reputable caring organization whose main concern is rescuing dogs and their wellbeing. This animal was neglected and abused not only by his previous owners, but by the "
" organization as well. First of all by not giving the shots to the animal timely, by exposing unvaccinated tiny puppy to infections just by having him at the "Adoption Event" I found out later that no obligatory preliminary medical tests or treatments are being provided to any of the animals that are offered to public for adoption by this "Rescuers" They jeopardize the animals at their possession, other pets in the families of adopters. .

"MARS is run by very caring and professional people. We were always kept informed throughout the entire adoption process. The adoption fee is pretty standard and considering what" the shelter does for the animals (transport alone from S/E Missouri region all the way to Chicago), it's a steal. The meeting process is done in a private area in the back of a pet supply store in Buffalo Grove, IL. Everyone on the MARS team was wonderful to work with. All of the animals we saw, included the one we adopted, looked happy and healthy and all of the families there to adopt seemed to be well chosen. The adopted animal comes micro chipped, neutered if age appropriate, and with a full medical history to take to your new Vet. The adoption process for a new pet can be challenging. To have a competent, caring and professional adoption staff helping you along the way is priceless. MARS provides a great service to both the new family and the adopted animals. I strongly recommend them should you decide to adopt a new family member.

"I felt pressured to adopt the dog I adopted; she's a great dog that needed some work but I did have to deal with a guilt trip to get me to consider her and adopt her I ended up" volunteering for this rescue and stopped doing so because I was uncomfortable with them misleading people about being a "not for profit" instead of a non-profit. They are incorporated as a non profit in the state which one has to do to be able to apply to be a charity at the federal and state level. They never did the later steps. I was also concerned with some other issues of this rescue having foster families that do not have the licenses the state requires to conduct adoptions do the adoption appointments at their homes or in driveways of volunteers that are near the pet stores where they show their dogs each week. Dogs were often in need of vet care the day they were adopted and had not been seen by a local vet at all; dogs were often placed at homes that they knew would not be a good fit and were returned with the founder making comments about how she didn't mind the returns of an easy to place dog because she could just get another adoption fee paid out of it, Another issue was that the founder of the rescue often re-homed her own pets, including ones adopted from other rescues or shelters by placing them up for adoption through

Animal rescues most often need foster parents to take care of dogs and cats in their system so the pets don't have to live in shelters for an extended time.

Animal Rescues/Shelters

Are you considering adopting a new cat or dog? Consider fostering first. Fostering saves lives, and it helps you see how well the pet fits into your family.

As a responsible pet parent, you should be taking them to the vet regularly for vaccinations and check-ups, says Stewart. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Elaine R. of St. Louis)

Bringing a new member into your family is a big commitment and life change, even when it’s a four-legged one. Consider these questions before you adopt a pet.

The adoption fee included spaying and veterinary thing. It worked out well. They have friendly staff. They allowed us to bring our dog in and made sure that the two dogs could get along. They were not only accommodating in that aspect but they made sure that we did that. They were knowledgeable. They were very good. The fee was fine.

At first I thought
New York Animal Rescues Provider Name Locked
was a stand up organization. I adopted a puppy I named
New York Animal Rescues Provider Name Locked
from them on October 12, 2014 after having an application reviewed, my references check, and my home inspected. I had never seen the puppy standing since he had not received all of his vaccines. When I got him home and put him down I realized he was extremely malnourished an within three days that he was ill and not just adjusting to new food. I took him to the vet by day 4 and he was dewormed and on day 5 received medications for a severe ear infection that he must have had for a very long time and an intestinal infection. By day 5 he started to display neurological problems. I took him back to the vet and she referred me to a neurologist which I took
New York Animal Rescues Provider Name Locked
to the following day. He prescribed some additional antibiotics because it appeared the ear infection had ruptured his ear drum and spread to his inner ear. I contacted
New York Animal Rescues Provider Name Locked
to express my concern over the lack of care
New York Animal Rescues Provider Name Locked
received in his foster home. It appeared by the paperwork that he may have been there between 4 to 6 weeks and had been to a vet - but because of his condition - we questioned if he had actually received the medications listed on the form. I asked several questions the vet requested I ask - such as did he have any reactions to the medications that may have caused them to stop giving it to him, did he have any reactions to his vaccines. He had a brother adopted out through
New York Animal Rescues Provider Name Locked
, were they aware of any neurological problems his brother was having. I said that any information they provide could only help us save
New York Animal Rescues Provider Name Locked
's life. They NEVER acknowledged or responded to my e-mail.
New York Animal Rescues Provider Name Locked
may not have been in their care as long as I thought he had but since they didn't bother to respond to me - I can only assume that he was.
Unfortunately,
New York Animal Rescues Provider Name Locked
continued to decline and the vet believes the infection had spread to
New York Animal Rescues Provider Name Locked
's brain and changed his medications to stronger antibiotics and steriods which are not normally prescribed to puppies but it was our desperate attempt to save him. Despite all of my vet's efforts - he lost his ability to stand and walk, lost his vision, and we believe was losing his hearing. Since he was not responding to even the super strong medications and he was continuing to deteriorate and was suffering greatly, he was euthanized on October 29, 2014. Despite the fact that he was dying the whole time I had him - he still managed to gain 9 pounds in 14 days.
I am aware that any time you adopt a rescue there are health risks and I am willing to take them. But in my opinion,
New York Animal Rescues Provider Name Locked
was neglected while in the foster home of
New York Animal Rescues Provider Name Locked
and that neglect
New York Animal Rescues Provider Name Locked
to his suffering and death. The fact that the organization never responded to my e-mail and made no attempt to answer any of our questions to help
New York Animal Rescues Provider Name Locked
leads me to believe that they don't care about the animals after they are adopted out. I was not trying to give him back or get a refund - I fell in love with the puppy and I was going to keep him and take care of him. I spent well over $1,000 in medical bills in the two weeks I had him. All I wanted from
New York Animal Rescues Provider Name Locked
was information to help
New York Animal Rescues Provider Name Locked
and to alert them to a possible problem with one of their foster homes.
Shame on
New York Animal Rescues Provider Name Locked
. If you do adopt from them, take your pet to the vet the very next day and don't trust the paperwork they give you.

The dogs kennels are clean. The dogs are normally fitted into the right kennel size for them, unless they've got a lot of dogs. I was very lucky myself and just recently got a
New York Animal Rescues Provider Name Locked
poodle and a Chihuahua on the same day because we had a pet pass and I was bringing in some new friends for my other dog and she liked both of them. They have a play area. There are several fenced areas outside where you can go and acclimate the dogs or just go out there with the dog. They also have rooms inside that are like larger customer rooms if you will, with chairs and table and things like that and you can play with the dog in there and get used to them and then go outside and see what it's like in the outdoors. They also board dogs outside as well, so they can get some fresh air and stuff. But it's a lot
New York Animal Rescues Provider Name Locked
out there, because the dogs can all see each other and so there's a lot more barking going on. Inside they tend not to see each other because of the walls. They bark at a person when they go by or they bark at somebody when they go down the middle of the kennel to get food and water or take the dog out, but that's only natural. That's what dogs do. I think they have little raised like a cot that the dog sleeps on. They recently redid all the floors, so that they're more of a easy to keep clean types. The adoption fee depends on the dog - some are $80, some are $40, if they've been there longer. People who work there are very caring. They really do not want bad things to happen to the dogs. I've never seen anybody in there be anything but kind with the dogs.

We were looking to adopt a dog and stumbled upon
New York Animal Rescues Provider Name Locked
online. We found a dog we were interested in and contacted them. They responded very quickly and I was put in contact with the individual fostering the dog we wanted. We exchanged e-mails and she was very thorough and answered all of my many questions in great detail (how does the dog do around cats, how much does he shed, etc.). We were able to meet the dog within a week and after that we had to schedule a home visit. After that, we decided we wanted the dog and had the option to pick him up the next day. They required us to have a leash and identification along with the $200. Overall, it was a great and easy experience. At first glance I thought $200 seemed like a little much but the dog comes fixed, microchipped, and up to date on its shots and flea/heartworm medicine. We also got a weeks’ worth of food (to help you transition them), 2 bones, and some treats If you visit the vet and pet store once you will know this is a great deal. The foster woman also trained him to sit and got him accustomed to a routine (he was even crate trained and housebroken!). Although all dogs may not be this well trained, I feel with the vet care alone it’s worth the cost. They also gave us a sheet with information about how much he ate, past history, all vet records, and tips for getting them accustomed to a new home. It may seem like overkill to have a home visit but after looking into other shelters, this seems to be pretty common and
New York Animal Rescues Provider Name Locked
does not have an application (which many other places do). Overall, I was very satisfied with the experience and we love our new dog!

Owner lacks integrity. Group is there to take your money and donations but then gives you the run around. I do not think they have the animals best interests at heart. Would love to see an audit of their financials. So many other high quality rescues -- do not waste your time or money on this one
