Local Articles in La Habra
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.
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.
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.
Animal Shelter reviews in La Habra
They transported him to our house. He came to us happy and healthy. We took him to the vet soon after and the vet said he'd been very well taken care of and was very healthy.
We got paperwork for him with all his updated shots and rabies tags. They also send us copies of everything we needed in the mail. We also got a Christmas card from them!
I had questions about our dog after he came home with us and the foster mom has been GREAT at answering any and all questions I had. She has made herself available even after the adoption. Our dog came to us with FANTASTIC manners. He is house broken and can sit on command and is so well behaved. Its a great tribute to how well the foster mom did raising him!
I can't go on enough about how much me and my fiance love this agency! Do not miss the
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
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

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 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
