You think that a rescue would be a good place to go to adopt, or to surrender your dog that needs medical treatment, or just surrender your dog because you can no longer keep them. It sounds and looks like a good place, but boy oh boy looks can be deceiving. They are in the business of making money! not saving animals as they so call it! every rescued dog has a FAKE  sad story, they know that sympathy = $$$. They will con you any way that they can into donating! They will tell you that the dog was beaten. neglected, breeded, dying. they lie about the dog so that you feel sorry for them. its a good game I would have to admit! so when you adopt, you think that your taking this poor beaten dog to a nice family when really the dog had a great family before! If you surrender your dog they will slander you to the vet, other people and all over the internet. If you want to know what is happening to your dog, goodluck! You are now the enemy!

They can't make up lies about the owner when the owner is telling the REAL story of what happened. [continued below]....

..... They slander everyone who surrenders there dogs, they will leave it up for a few days then delete it because they know how bad it would look to an outsider. There was one puppy that had parvo a few days ago , they claimed that the owner just " wanted the dog gone". no owner calling a rescue would say that! LIE! Another woman surrendered her boxer and the owner of the rescue at petsmart, They lady was in so many words called stupid for not having the vaccinations for the pup and that she paid a lot of money for it from a breeder, If you just paid $500 for a dog the vaccinations would be done and your not going to just give the dog away, LIE! The things that they have said about me is outrageous! I had an akita who accidentally got pregnant ( I have never had a pregnant dog before), when I had thought that she went into labor I waited for her to deliver and she didn't have them, so I took her to the vet and the vet said that she was'nt even in labor and to just wait. So I did and kept in contact with my vet so that I knew what to do. I woke up the next morning to find that she delievered a dead pup, it broke my heart to watch her trying to wake the baby up by licking it and picking it up. We were advised by the vet to take it away from her and wait for the next to be born, and so I did. After waiting for hours the pup still was'nt born. I knew since there was a dead pup in there that the vet bill would be way too much for me to afford. So I called ARA canine rescue to help. I though that I did the right thing even tho it was hard to let her go. I kept in contact with the woman for a few hours until she stopped responding to my texts and calls. she told me that the dog was on deaths door and might not make it through the night ( the dog looked fine when she left my home, she was'nt even laboring). I was really upset and wondered why her doctor could'nt tell me this the day before.

The next morning I decided to check out this rescue group that I had heard was slandering me and lying about the whole story with her, I have been called a "horrible owner" that I got the dog off of " craigslist for free to breed" that I " hated" my dog,  that I "would'nt give a dog vet care that was hated". the owner of the board posted " now that the puppies are born dead and mom is useless and dying they are giving her to us" she also stated that she wanted to physically hurt me but it was not a good day to " go to jail". Supposedly my dog was " left suffering for days" and " neglected". My husband spoke with this lady over the phone and said that cursed like a sailor, he had never heard someone so unprofessional. My husband had expected this woman to have come from prison from the way that she talked, i guess it was that bad. She claimed that they "have filed charges" against us "for neglect" ( I honestly think that she was just scared and making up more stories, thats what she is good at). I guess every other word was an F bomb. She also claimed that when they came to pick up my dog that I told them to get the dog out of my yard and how much I hated the dog, LIE!

I had a witness here to prove that those things were never ever ever said! she just told lie after lie on the phone and over the internet. I had people Emailing me to tell me what was going on, they are spreading the word! When they posted a picture of my dog after her supposed surgery she looked great! someone Emailed it to me pointing out that dogs don't look this great the day after surgery.  she was standing normally and had no cone on ( they always have a cone so that they don't rip open their stitches) I'm pretty sure that she lied about the surgery for donations, she had posted how " scary the vet bill" was getting and asking people to " donate".  I am going to write a review on every single page that i possibly can, I need to get my story out what this place had done to me. I had asked for a public apology 3 times via public post and Email, just a simple "I'm sorry for lying" I told them if they stopped lying and slandering me and to publicly admit is that I won't spread the word on what they have done to me but they are so unprofessional that they refuse to give such a simple thing.

Unaltered?

AUTHOR: Seraya - ()

Shame in the owner of the Akita for having a male and female unaltered pair together. ITs not rocket science to know what will happen.  Why isn't the vets report published to show the extent of the dogs vetting? The authors story is full of things that don't make sense.  If you can't afford to vet your dog, you shouldn't have one.  Sounds to me like the dog is in a much better place with a reputable rescue and the chance of having an owner who is able to take care of the dog.  Sounds to me like the dogs owners were irresponsible in many ways.

Beware!!!

AUTHOR: user unknown - ()

Here is an atricle that was posted about the situation. youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/we-named-her-mercy-/223336 

 

"A 4 year old female Akita was given away for free on Craigslist. After promptly being impregnated by the new family's unneutered dog"

I never said where I had gotten the dog and for how much! As for the "NEW" family dog, We had our boy for 4 years, He had lost his mini companion so we got him another.

 

"Eventually, she pushed out a dead puppy, possibly another, then continued to "push" for several days. By the middle of the week, a woman posted on Facebook the story of her granddaughter’s Akita who had "dark greenish/black, horribly foul smelling goop" coming from her vulva and the dog had already birthed at least one dead puppy. Countless people urged the grandmother: tell her granddaughter to get the dog to the vet and/or take the dog to a vet herself before the dog died a horribly painful death. After a few days of this nonsense, the grandmother wrote that "the dog had been taken to a vet and the vet said that “all was well” and the dog could go back home and continue to push the remaining puppies out naturally and without medical intervention"

When exactly did she push out a dead puppy? It was friday August 22nd 2014! That was the same day that I called the rescue! As for the "greenish/ black ghorribly foul smelling goop" I have the comments on facebook and know what I saw that in fact it was to tiny drops of green that had NO smell to that I was concerned about! I took her to the vet on August 21st 2014 and was told that she was not even in labor yet, that it should start within 5 hours but no more that 24 hours! 

 

"ARA Rescue Inc. contacted Akita Angels seeking collaboration to rescue and assist this Akita before she died in the backyard of this high desert home. Through countless postings on Facebook and text messages with volunteers from both organizations, the granddaughter/owner of the dog made it clear that she hated the dog and would not take it to the vet and if it required a C-section she wasn't going to do it. Furthermore, she stated to at least one volunteer of the rescue that “…as far as she was concerned, the dog could die in the backyard and she hated it because it had killed her cat.”desert home."

Before she "died in the backyard"? Its funny how many lies are in this story. She was in my home, NOT in my backyard! I set up a whelping area for her in my master bedroom closet then moved her to my master bedroom bathroom, I let her lead me to where she wanted to go because i knew that dogs choose where they want to have them! I have pictures of these as well! Everything else in the end of that sentence is a complete lie! NONE of that was EVER said! Why would someone call for help while wanting to kill their animal?!?! I mean come on!!!! 

 

"The infection caused from the dead and decaying puppy was so severe the vet would not perform an emergency C-section on her late Friday afternoon for fear she would not survive the surgery. She was given high doses of intravenous antibiotics and fluids to rehydrate her and was stabilized overnight. On Saturday morning, August 23, the surgeon’s calendar was cleared and she was rushed into emergency surgery.

Several hours later the vet emerged. Due to the extent of internal damage caused by the massive infection, much of the dog’s internal reproductive organs and tissues were removed. She is spending at least one more night in the hospital as she recovers from this major, emergency surgery which was so painful and unnecessary. It could have been avoided had the owner taken the dog to the vet and been given the medical care she so obviously needed."

I seriously call BS on all of this! Doesn't it sound ultra dramatic?!?! Like I had said, She was at her vet on August 21st 2014.

 

"This poor dog, so carelessly bounced from her prior home for free via Craigslist to the most recent one, had been given no name."

Her name is Seven! she got her name because she has the shape of a white 7 on her chest!

 

Like i said, they tell bogus storys to get donations! There is not a single person that I know that would ever support this! 

 

Here is their bogus full story in case they delete the  link:

A 4 year old female Akita was given away for free on Craigslist. After promptly being impregnated by the new family's unneutered dog, this beautiful sable colored Akita went into labor early last week. Eventually, she pushed out a dead puppy, possibly another, then continued to "push" for several days. By the middle of the week, a woman posted on Facebook the story of her granddaughter’s Akita who had "dark greenish/black, horribly foul smelling goop" coming from her vulva and the dog had already birthed at least one dead puppy. Countless people urged the grandmother: tell her granddaughter to get the dog to the vet and/or take the dog to a vet herself before the dog died a horribly painful death. After a few days of this nonsense, the grandmother wrote that "the dog had been taken to a vet and the vet said that “all was well” and the dog could go back home and continue to push the remaining puppies out naturally and without medical intervention."   WE CALL B.S. on that.

On Friday, Aug. 22, Alleys Rescued Angels, aka, ARA Rescue Inc. contacted Akita Angels seeking collaboration to rescue and assist this Akita before she died in the backyard of this high desert home. Through countless postings on Facebook and text messages with volunteers from both organizations, the granddaughter/owner of the dog made it clear that she hated the dog and would not take it to the vet and if it required a C-section she wasn't going to do it. Furthermore, she stated to at least one volunteer of the rescue that “…as far as she was concerned, the dog could die in the backyard and she hated it because it had killed her cat.”esert home. 

ARA Rescue agreed to pick up the dog and remove it from the owner’s property provided the owner legally relinquish the dog, in writing, to the rescue, which they did upon arrival. The dog was swiftly rushed straight to a trusted vet and examined. An ultrasound and x-ray confirmed there was a dead puppy remaining inside the dog in one of the horns that had been decaying and decomposing for days and was the obvious source of the blackish/green sludge coming from the dog’s vulva. *WARNING - GRAPHIC PHOTOS* 

The infection caused from the dead and decaying puppy was so severe the vet would not perform an emergency C-section on her late Friday afternoon for fear she would not survive the surgery. She was given high doses of intravenous antibiotics and fluids to rehydrate her and was stabilized overnight. On Saturday morning, August 23, the surgeon’s calendar was cleared and she was rushed into emergency surgery.

Several hours later the vet emerged. Due to the extent of internal damage caused by the massive infection, much of the dog’s internal reproductive organs and tissues were removed. She is spending at least one more night in the hospital as she recovers from this major, emergency surgery which was so painful and unnecessary. It could have been avoided had the owner taken the dog to the vet and been given the medical care she so obviously needed.

This poor dog, so carelessly bounced from her prior home for free via Craigslist to the most recent one, had been given no name.

We named her Mercy.  Her name means “compassionate or kindly forbearance shown toward an offender, an enemy, or other person in one's power; compassion, pity, or benevolence.” We think her name fits.

We need your help to pay for Mercy’s veterinary bills and care. We will post a copy of the invoice when Mercy is released from the hospital. The veterinarian is not equipped to handle phone payments so we ask that you make any donations towards Mercy’s care through this fundraising site. 

Akita Angels, Inc. and ARA Rescue Inc., are both IRS-approved animal welfare organizations. All donations are tax deductible to the extent allowably under law. 

If you wish to make a donation directly to the veterinarian, please contact the organizer of the fundraiser and we will provide the veterinarian’s name and address for you.

Thank you for caring, helping, and God Bless. Updates to be posted soon.

#3 UPDATE Employee

Unsubstantiated slander from a young woman whose grandmother asked US to take her dog

AUTHOR: ARA Canine Rescue - ()

We will not get engaged in answering all of these erroneous and slanderous ramblings from one young person who, for some reason, is now 'angry'. This woman, who we have never named, signed a relinquishment document after her female dog became pregnant, the result of owning and keeping both an unfixed male and an unfixed female in her backyard.  We did not seek out to take the female dog, we were contacted by this youngster's grandmother with a plea... 

The plea was " this dog has been in labor for 5 days and has birthed a dead puppy" 

Our organization operates in full transparency.  Our mission is not to pay the medical costs for privately owned dogs or to steal dogs...there are over 300 huskies a month in the shelters that we work with...our mission is to save as many of them as we can.

We are truly at a loss as to why this woman is being so vindictive.

She relinquished her pregnant dog who had been in labor 5 days. Was birthing dead pups and still had a decaying fetus in her body.

As an animal rescue organization when we are approached with a situation like this, we act. We paid for an emergency C-section. We did not ask for any money. We did not pass on the medical bills. We did not name the owner who had caused this situation.

We are a small, but highly regarded, 501c3 non-profit organization. Our reputation is stellar. We could post all of the documentation that we have regarding this person but the relinquishment form she signed has her name and signature on it and as we have had the grace to not identify this woman. She on the other hand has created a work of fiction upon Ripoff Report.

Ripoff Report is a very clever Search Engine Optimized site which quotes as its disclaimer "The Ripoff Report is a non-substantiated source of information" In order to have this inflammatory nonsense removed they expect us, a non-profit, self funded, 100% volunteer ran rescue to pay $2000 to Ripoff report to have these lies removed from their site. And as a result of this, one strangely vidictive person has been given a forum to spout.

We have over 2000 happy adopters, we have 300 5 star reviews, we have a State Commendation. Our reputation will not be tarnished.
