    On 12/23/2013 I called this rescue regarding a dog that was advertised. I was told that I could pick up Sophie, a Westiepoo, the following day in Liberty Center, OH (East of Toledo in Henry County). No application or references were required. While deciding if I would take Sophie, I picked her up. She was shaking. The foster mother said she was stressed because her sister left with an adopter the night before. I asked the foster mother, Lisa, if my vet found something seriously wrong with the dog could I return her. Lisa responded, "Yes, or you can take her to the vet and we will pay the bill." For $100 I adopted Sophie. About 1 hour into the 3 hour ride home she vomited. She continued to vomit the remainder of the day. On Christmas Day, in addition to the vomiting she had diarrhea. Her foster mother suggested stress was causing Sophie's symptoms. On 12/26 I took her to my vet who checked her for parasites. Sophie's medical records showed that she had been vaccinated for parvovirus (two days prior to my adopting her). On the morning of 12/27 I discovered that Sophie had had shooting diarrhea all over my upstairs during the night. She was very weak. At 6 a.m. I rushed her to a 24-hour animal hospital where she was diagnosed with parvovirus. Despite round-the-clock care, Sophie expired on 12/27. Throughout this ordeal I kept the foster mother updated on Sophie's condition and provided her the name and telephone number of the facility that was treating her. The incubation period for this highly contagious, deadly canine disease is 3-7 days. Sophie had to have been ill when I adopted her. Heritage Farms Animal Rescue admitted that three other of their dogs had been treated for parvovirus, yet they refuse to refund me for the cost incurred for Sophie's care. I was told that a dog is like a TV. If a TV is bad you return it. I informed Lisa of Heritage that a dog is NOT like a TV and that Sophie was in critical condition upon arrival at the hospital. There was no time to drive her 3 hours back to her foster home. And, Lisa did not suggest that I do so during the days of Sophie's treatment.

    In 6/2001 I adopted two older cats , one of whom had been at the shelter for over a year. I don't know why. He was beautiful, loving, and as it turned out...deaf. Made no difference. The other fellow was a beautiful Maine C*** cat who used to put his chin on my thigh while I read the paper and drool on me. The last thing I needed was a dog but when I saw my little white poodle buddy on the website, I knew he was mine. I asked if he had any known problems getting along with cats and nobody knew. The dog (estimated age of 5-had not been well taken care of...possibly a breeding mill rescue) ignored the cats that joined us in the meet and greet room so home he came. He and his attitude. One cat went to the bedroom and didn't come out for a week but it eventually all worked out. They got to the point where the all laid on the sofa or bed in a cuddle puddle. CHA does tireless unpaid volunteer work to keep animals from suffering and I am forever grateful to them for my babies who have since all crossed the Rainbow Bridge. I miss them every day. It's a very long story but I now have 3 rescue chihuahuas acquired from a similar shelter when I lived in Seattle.

    The only thing I didn't like was that they changed the dog's name once it was taken in. Once we used his previous name, he perked right up. The people were very nice though! Our dog had all of his shots and he was neutered. They also microchipped him - however, it was with a different company than I typically use.
