  • 1. BEWARE of dog owner

    by: lottielooney

    We spent weeks searching for the right dog for our family. We were pre-approved, enjoyed our telephone experience with the rescue, dealing specifically with Jackie, and drove an hour to meet two pups, of which we were ready to bring one home. When both pups climbed on top of our three-yr-old, scaring her, Jackie screamed, "CHILDREN AND DOGS DO NOT MIX! GET HER (referring to my daughter) OUT OF HERE!" Jackie literally pushed us out the gate and disappeared. As we were collecting ourselves assuming we were not going to be approached before our departure, Jackie came out of the rescue. I thought she was going to make sure our daugther was okay and offer some words of encouragement... completely the opposite. She got into my face and yelled at me for wasting her time and for not taking the process seriously. We will still rescue a dog as we believe it is a wonderful thing to do... but, I would caution anyone with children to deal with Jackie. Our failure to adopt was not the fault of the pups, after all they are just pups... Jackie is completely unprofessional. What a very sad day for our family.

    by: turnerfamily5151

    I commend Hope Animal Rescues for saving animals on their last days. Their are truly an asset to the community. I just wish that it were easier to see the animals. Having to set mutiple appointments deters some people from adopting.

    Some difficulty in getting to see the animals available
