Past home inspection, past reference checks, dog came for visit we liked him and he like us.
Now the CONTRACT!
You NEVER actually own the pet. The "rescue " holds ownership forever.
Mind you are responsible for all vet, food ,toys etc.
If the animal needed extremely expensive vet treatment or developed a horrible disease.
You are expected to spare no expense or they will a: take away the dog and charge you a fine of $5000.!!!
Some want to be able to visit at anytime after you adopt if they find anything not to their liking they will take the animal or you pay a fine!
This is all actually in the contract!
YOU will never actually have ownership of your pet!
They don't give a crap about the animals it is all about the $$$.
Would you put your heart and soul and lots of $$ into an animal that they can take away for what seems like anything they deem unsuitable?
Pets are for a lifetime, that is what we want.
No wonder those poor animals are on there for months and years.!
Can dO rescue referred to a previous "adopter" as a bitc $, !
Took photos without my permission.
Said all references they talk too are liars.
Asked my reference personal questions about my health. (questions that NOTHING remotely required for pet adoptions .
When we said in good conscience we could not sign that contract (clauses not in original documents sent )
She yanked that poor dog away from my husband shouted " then he is not staying" and stormed out the door.
Stay away from Chatham Kent rescue, I will buy a dog now , where I know all my live, attention and $$ will go to MY pet , not some "rent a dog" bullcrap
