It is, allegedly, a scam, and was busted today. It's a house in Long Island, wherein some 50 possibly stolen dogs, some dead, some alive were found and confiscated. The local news is reporting that 3 individuals are being held, at least on the cruelty issues, with the other issues being investigated. The reports indicated that It started falling apart when a local person saw their own dog there, retrieved him or her, and reported the possible theft. http://www.wnbc.com/news/13541283/detail.html

my husband and i were anticipating the arrival of our new beagle for two weeks. the owners of the LUCKY FUND shelter in medford long island, ny came to our house, saw our apartment and approved our application. we were told that this beagle DID NOT howl. since we live in an apartment, this would have been a huge problem so we only decided to take him after being told this and seeing him described as not howling on the website. when we finally got him after going back and forth for two weeks as to whether the dog was sick or not, we got him , he was not neutered. we were so excited. we walked him and then we had to take the garbage out, so we tried to baby gate him in our bedroom and that is when he started howling like crazy. also, when we closed the bathroom door to go in, he bashed himself against the door. we were up all night because the beagle howled every five minutes to be let out which was surprising to us because we were told he was in a crate at home and that no back yard was necessary when the shelter owners saw our apartment. the next day we knew we could not keep him or we would be kicked out of our apartment. the shelter was more than willing to take him back and then apologized over and over for the bad experience. they told us to come to the shelter to pick out another dog and that they would do everything they could to help us find the right dog. we went there and saw a poodle and were told by the workers there that he was a great dog and good with cats, (which is important because we have a 14 year old cat), and that he is crate trained. when we spoke to the owners of the shelter later that day they said this was untrue and we did not want this dog. then they told us about another dog and to come see him tomorrow. when my husband called, the wife said that this was not a good dog and that someone else already took him. then the husband said he would find out what was going on and call us back in five minutes. of course we never heard from them again! I can understand they might have been upset that we gave the dog back but it was their fault...they are the ones who decided to give us the wrong information! this was incredible! WE WERE SO DISAPPOINTED! they did not seem to work together for the good of the animals or know the dogs at all. ns and the aspca test the dogs to see how they are. also, when we got to the shelter, the dogs were running everywhere and all over each other. there was no where to meet the dog privately or to see how they act when not around the other dogs; of course the beagle was howling, at the shelter he had 15 other dogs to play with and a huge backyard with a doggie door. the dogs were flithy and the house smelled the minute you pulled up to it! we felt completley lied to and misled, like they just wanted to get rid of the dogs with no regard as to what was best for the dog or the owner. this was such a horrible and emotional experience. i was crying because we were so excited about getting the beagle and got so attached after just one night. the next day we went to nsal and got a dog. my husband convinced me to even though i swore i never wanted to look at another dog. we both had dogs growing up and cats so we are good, potential pet owners whom these people drove away. however, i would never recommend this shelter to anyone and i think it should be a requirement that these shelters know the dogs a little better before just giving them to a family and a home that they are not meant for. thank you for taking the time to listen to this and read this.
