Sadly this organization doesn't live up to what they advertise.

I lost my golden Retriever this year and wanted to adopt another one, so I filled out an application to adopt a golden.... They did a house check and took the required $20 donation. Any dog I was interested in, they would give me an excuse as to why I couldn't have him.

Now after some research, I learned that being I live in a condo (even with a large fenced in patio) I can't compete with a family who lives in a house with a yard, and some cases with a pool.

They say they want the dogs to have a good loving forever home so he won't be returned. But being that my golden who I raised since a puppy who had a wonderful happy life of hiking the canyons, playing ball in the park every day and even trips to the beach. Dogs don't care about size of a home or a yard if they are getting plenty of exercise etc. Dogs just want love and attention and spending time with their owner.

It turns out the dogs who don't have a foster home are living in a kennel at the local vets in a cage until the fosters get adopted so they can move into a foster home.

But if you live in a condo or an apt, it doesn't matter how much love you give the rescue. They will hold out till the dog gets the best of the best homes.

Every dog I had an interest in, they would give a silly reason why I wasn't a good fit. And 2 of the dogs are still listed as " adoptable" on there website. 1 of them they told me awhile ago was already adopted- which he isn't . So After reading a review from a volunteer at this rescue center. I get how selfish and u fair they are being to the dogs they say they want to help. This is a small part of her review:

"The most important thing and overriding consideration is to match every dog with the appropriate adopter. Each dog has a unique personality with specific needs for a long and happy life. One example of this is my current foster dog who LIVES to belly flop, splash and swim. To place him in a home without a pool would be a travesty and totally unfair to the dog. I would forever feel as if I had let this wonderful loving dog down, by not placing him in his ideal environment. Therefore, until we identify the perfect fit for both dog and family, the pooches remain in our care. "

FYI - dogs don't care about this or even remember - so sad for the dogs in the Kennels while this dog COULD have a home, but holding out for luxery.
