I adopted a large, black hound mix from GADR about 4 months ago and cannot imagine my life without her. She was at a local shelter on the euthanasia list when they saved her. Mila had quite a few medical and behavioral issues when they rescued her which her foster mom had been working on with her and were improving. Everything the foster had learned about her including behavioral quirks, her favorite treats/toys, and full disclosure of medical history was provided to me and I felt fully aware of what I was getting into with her adoption. It was such an easy transition because I really felt like the foster was so thorough and set my family and Mila up for success. The volunteers were all super friendly and you can tell they really care about the animals they rescue. I was told if for any reason I could not keep Mila they would take her back but there's no way that will ever happen!! Thank you GADR for pairing me with my favorite girl!!
I had only positive experiences with Guardian Angel Dog Rescue in Tampa. I adopted the sweetest dog in the world. This rescue told me how they rescued her from a shelter that was going to put her to sleep. They took such great care of her. They showed me how emaciated she was when they rescued her. All the dogs they rescue go to foster homes. The foster dad fattened my Abbey up and they got her spayed and all great medical care. That was 7 years ago. My baby is healthy and so happy. I've never loved a dog as much as my Abbey! The adoption process was very easy. I filled out an application at there website. I loved how they called my vet and reference and even my landlord. They actually care. They then called me to tell me I was approved. Then I went to Petsmart and met my Abbey. They gave me as much time as I wanted with her at Petsmart. They were very nice and professional. I really liked that the dog I adopted was so well cared for. I received lifetime training tips and free health insurance too! The thing that really impressed me, is they called me to check on Abbey the next day. I highly recommend adopting from this awesome rescue. I always believe in adopting versus buying. As I care about helping saving a life. I cant imagine Abbey would have died if this rescue didn't save her. Forever grateful to them.
I adopted three dogs from this awesome rescue. I love how thorough their application process is. They all are volunteers and care so much where the dogs go. I had no issues with the health of the dogs. In fact they all were seen my a veterinarian. I loved how they all were fixed, shots, microchipped. They even gave me free 30 days health insurance. I also love how they save dogs from the shelters. I highly recommend adopting a dog from this rescue.
I have adopted 2 great cats and a wonderful dog from GADR. These are an extremely hard-working bunch of people who do any and all things for these animals, from finding and fostering them to finally adopting them out. They are at Petsmart every single Sunday, rain or shine, trying to find adoptive families. They are very rigorous in their adoption processes to ensure the animals find good, safe homes. They do whatever is needed for their animals to be and stay as healthy as possible. Since the animals are rescues, they may not know everything about their history, but if they know, they will tell you. My one kitty had a respiratory infection, which they informed me about and provided the medications for, and she was fine within a few days.
