Well Twinkles won't be coming here and you won't believe why!
I went over the next day and put an app in for him. Beings he was in a wire cage on the floor I was sure he was cold & I took him a little jacket to wear.
Put the app in & some lady came & wanted to see him & they said well she is filling an app out now & the lady said well if it falls through - call me.
I could not imagine why it would fall through. I am a rescuer & had good references. (Which they never checked!!!)
They informed me he did indeed have kennel cough. OK they started him on meds.
Now here's the kicker - they informed me that in order for me to be approved I had to bring all 8 of my rescues over to interact with him.
You don't tell a rescuer to bring all their dogs into a place with kennel cough. That is pure stupidity!!
I said no way will I subject my dogs to kennel cough.---- well they can meet outside.
They would still be with him & he had kennel cough. They gave me till Monday at 7PM. (2 days) No way was he going to be cured in two days.
I called my vet that night & talked to him. With Abbys lungs & Winnies heart he advised me NOT to take them over. I could be signing a death sentence for 2 of mine. It takes 7 days to 2 weeks for isolation & they were adopting this dog out now.
Monday I called them & ask for more time till he was well even tho it was a real pain for me to drag 8 dogs over there I would have done it. I ask for a home visit- NO they don't have the people to do it.
Strange- I am suppose to be (WAS- NOT ANY MORE!!) a volunteer & I volunteered to do home checks they have never ask me to do one.
They refused to give me more time & the next day they had called that lady to put in an app.
I called the end of the week & he was gone!
Wonder if they told her he has kennel cough?
My groomer (who I was telling this to) said " Well I got my one dog there & he had it & they never told me. When I called they said they knew it & it was now my problem. My other dog came down with it also & it cost me a bundle"
Wonder what else they adopt out??
I thought this place had changed since new managers took over- Apparently I was WRONG!!!!!!!!!
So I have no idea where Twinkles is or if he even got a good home & it breaks my heart.
But I do know this place is all about making money - just shove them out the door so we can take more.
