This organization is anything but organized. I adopted a cat for my mother. She, the cat, supposedly had an eye infection but was otherwise in excellent health, had seen a vet regularly during her stay at Fieldhaven, etc., etc. An ointment for the eye was included with the adoption - no extra charge. Oh, and the adoption fee was discounted because she'd been there so long. Great deal we thought. We had the cat to our vet the first week only to discover that it wasn't an eye infection at all. Her lashes were growing inward toward her eye causing the irritation. The condition is common in cats and is easily corrected by surgery. It is also a condition that should have been identified by their vet if indeed she had been to the vet regularly. When I called to request a little help with the vet fees they basically said, she's your responsibility now. When I pointed out the fact they should have known about this and warned us when we adopted her they just said there was nothing they could do. They wouldn't even give us a referral to a vet who might discount the surgery for us. I felt cheated and lied to, taken advantage of then left out in the cold to fend for myself. Animal rescue? Maybe. People friendly, not so much.

So, stupid person that I am, about a year later I spotted a 7 month old kitten at one of their adoption site in a pet store. I thought, well, maybe the first instance was a fluke and I should give them the benefit of the doubt. I asked to meet the kitten and fell in love. The people there told me she was in excellent health, had been spayed, etc. I asked specifically about vaccination, rabies specifically, and was told emphatically, yes, she had had all her vaccinations and was upto date on everything. Once again, I got to my vet and they couldn't find any indication she'd had her rabies shot yet. So I called Fieldhaven to see if they could send me proof. Should I have been surprise when the response came that the kitten probably (Probably!? What, you don't have records? Or, can't find them?) hadn't gotten a rabies shot? And again I was told, the cat I mine now and the shot is my responsibility. What is the adoption fee for!!! One of their selling points is that their animals are all ready for adoption, shots, chips, health.

I am so frustrated with this organization. What they do is so important and I want to support them but find it a little difficult when they have lied to me twice now and don??t even have the courtesy to admit it. Just suck it up and say oops, we goofed. I??ll be the eye condition was why the first cat was there so long finally being discounted so they could place it. Had I known about the condition we still would have adopted the cat. My mom is a sucker for a pretty calico. At least we would have known and been prepared for the extra expense.

If you see a cat at this place make them show you all records first, proof of every claim they make about the cat. Ask every question you can think of including what sort of assistance they will provide if there are any surprised you discover which they neglect to mention before the adoption. And good luck, you??ll need it.
