If you are in a stable position in life and have a place in your home and heart for a pet, I highly recommend a Atlanta Pet Rescue and Adoption. I adopted my dog there in October 2009. I had submitted my application via the Internet and arrived just prior to noon on Saturday to see one of the dogs I had spotted on their website. Like all quality rescue groups, APR wants to be sure their animals go to "forever homes." My dog had already been through a week in animal control and 7 weeks in the shelter. She needed to find a secure place in the world, not more instability, and that is why APR is very careful with their adoptions. I know some reviewers have been upset with APR, but I can only say that my experience was easy and rewarding. Everyone was friendly. They brought our dog into a fenced area so we could spend time alone with her and we were able to take her outside on the leash. I was also able to have her microchipped on the spot. On Monday I received a followup call to make sure everything was going well. My dog came housebroken and crate-trained (I am baffled how she ever ended up homeless). She's still learning to differentiate between HER toys and MY slippers, but she is in obedience school and very eager to please. I am very happy with my APR adoption and recommend them to anyone interested in rescuing a pet
We were very disappointed in Atlanta Pet Rescue. We consider ourselves an excellent family for a dog. In addition to providing a warm home, loving children, and regular vet care, we give our dog a 2 mile walk everyday. They wouldn't even consider us for an adoption because we let our dog stay outside during the daytime in a lovely fenced-in yard (no tethering or anything like that) even though our work days are short and dog sleeps on our children's beds at night. It makes me wonder how much they really care about placing their animals in desirable homes. I think our family would be a happy home for any dog but so much better than anything the dog had seen before. Ridiculous and sad!
