I am writing this because my fiancé and i decided we wanted a puppy. When discussing the idea with a co-worker he suggested adopting over “buying.” He himself has volunteered for Wags Rescue and made many valid points. That same day two weeks ago, i decided to apply for apply for a puppy, grayson, jaxson and then duke. I received a phone call the same night i applied advising grayson was adopted, but jaxson and duke were not, they were still available, but sick at the vet so we couldn't see them until they came home. Literally the next day my application was approved and i was informed Jaxson was adopted by then. Again THE NEXT DAY, after having been told he was available and there was nothing we could do until they came home from the vet. So from that point we decided on meeting Duke. When arriving to meet Duke the foster Tarah informed us someone else was interested and because their application was approved 45 minutes before mine that they had first dibs. We had already scheduled to meet Duke and the “first dibs” person scheduled after us. We FELL IN LOVE with Duke. But because the other persons application was approved first they got him. We were CRUSHED. but let it go. Fast forward to this week Wednesday, i scheduled for a meet and greet with Piraeus today, Saturday. Upon arriving to the fosters home we were told all of the puppies were available besides specifically Piraeus. The one puppy we were interested and were told we cant take him home until 3/8. So again, showed up to see a dog that we didn't have a chance with. I inquired and set everything up Wednesday, yet someone bought him online Thursday and some how no one knew anything about it. How is it in the case of Duke it was okay to hold him for the family that was approved before us(according to the foster) even though we inquired first and with Piraeus was again inquired first, but someone jumped right over us by paying for him and no one knew anything about it?! What was one dog allowed to be held and not the other? How is someone allowed to adopt a dog sight unseen? Isn't is all about the right fit for the dog? How can that be decided of there is no meet and greet done?! How is it known that dog is right for that family and vice versa?! None of this is fair to us. To get our hopes up and keep stringing us along saying “there are always more puppies.” I get that, but having us meet different puppies over and over for NOTHING is not right. At this point it makes no sense in adopting. Might as well go and shop for one instead of rescuing one. This whole ordeal is not good for your reputation. From my co-worker who had great things to say about this organization to now me and my situation opening up his eyes. Word of mouth spreads and i can guarantee anyone in my passings looking for a dog hears our story so they don't make the same mistake and have to go through the same crap we had to emotionally and mentally with your organization. I hope this email makes it to someone that really matters and cares. I will be sure to post it everywhere i can and again will spread the word on this phony organization who “puta the dogs first.” The money is whats important, nothing else, clearly.
