ANIMAL ADOPTION FOUNDATION: THEY PREVENT THEIR ANIMALS FROM FINDING GOOD HOMES
I used to think animal shelters cared
about placing their animals in good homes, but I was sadly mistaken. The people volunteering/working there at
Animal Adoption Foundation are very rude, as they unfairly stereotype and discriminate
against potential pet owners. First of
all, they ask applicants very personal questions, like how many people are in
household (seeing if you're married or not),
they even want to know if you let your dog or cat run in this room or
that room of your home. Also, having a 40-hour
a week job is a no-no, since this organization labels you a "bad pet
owner" and you're not allowed to have a dog or other pets if you decide on
adopting a kitten (other way around, if trying to adopt a puppy). [continued below]....
Also, don't mention
your sweet kitten died, despite him/her not having all the symptoms of Feline Leukemia,
since you will be accused
of your kitten having it, otherwise.
There are also non-contagious diseases that
as my kitten was bought from
a pet shop, had NO diarrhea, fever, vomiting, or other symptoms pertaining to
Feline Leukkemia---she was jumping around her cage and NOT lethargic up until
the day she died.
and parasites were found (inherited from
mother cat), had kitten de-wormed, but she died anyhow---- since by then, it
was apparently too late.
cats not to eat, especially kittens, as she was about 8 weeks old when she
I did research and found that
mother cats do pass
on worms to kittens,
which I did not know until after the fact.
So here I
Single; work 40 hours a week; and am
very sincere in wanting another kitten like one that died, so to fit in with my
dog and rabbits (I had all 4 of them sitting together on chair, with kitten
included). I have tons of references that can verify that I take excellent care
of my pets, even spoiling them in their happy home.
Kitten and dog used to lay next to each
other, if not the rabbits, too.
Although I know my kitten did NOT have Feline Leukkemia as cause of her death and I do not wish to adopt a grown cat (because chances are very great that he/she will not get along with my other pets), this same nasty guy working/volunteering at Animal Adoption Foundation kept pushing, "Oh, you can adopt one of our grown cats, but not a kitten." Oddly enough, I heard both kittens and grown cats can catch Feline Leukkemia, so who is calling the kettle black here? Just a few minutes prior, I heard from this same sarcastic man at the counter telling me how Animal Adoption Foundation KNOWS (accusations of) my kitten died of Feline Leukkemia; yet, at the same token, uses this as an excuse not to allow me to adopt a kitten. However, why would he push me to try and adopt an adult cat, after accusing me of my loving kitten dying from Feline Leukkemia? See the serious contradiction here?
I used to
donate to animal shelters, but not no more!
Even my friendly dog was scared among the sickening stench this shelter
had, which was worse than any vet's office I ever took my pets to.
My dog normally does not dribble urine on
the floor, even at vets office:
at Animal Adoption Foundation, he sure was nervous, as he couldn't get out of
that place fast enough!
kittens aren't very sociable toward potential animal adopters, as SPCA
charges $10 for a kitten, as opposed to the $85 charged by this very rude,
discriminating organization, who proved to me that they really don't have the
animals' well-being in mind.
Adoption Foundation's standards, 99% of the population should not be allowed to
own pets; therefore, these animals are stuck overcrowding theirs and many other shelters across the U.S.A.
I would not go
back to Animal Adoption Foundation or any other animal shelter, after the disgusting, downgrading
treatment I received, which by the way, I heard other people being talked to
like they were scums of the Earth while I was there----no wonder shelters are
full of animals!
They take U.S.
Government money hand-outs based on how many animals they keep at their facilities, so to pretend they are non-profit organizations----ha, nothing could
be farther than the real truth!
was even thinking about volunteering there:
Good thing I didn't, since these people are preventing animals from
finding good homes, where animals could become pets treated like
"kings" and "queens."
Best place to
put any mailed requests for donations to "Save The Animals" or what
ever theme pertains to animal shelters:
"File 13," which is the garbage can.
The people running Animal Adoption Foundation think they are so much
better and mightier than anyone else:
To them, people that are single (makes me a horrible person in their eyes, whether single by choice, widowed, or divorced); work
at least 40 hours outside the home to pay the bills and pet upkeep (as asked
how many hours one is gone from home each week on their application); have dog(s), rabbit(s), or other pets living together in harmony; and
a being homeowners makes us all " no-good pet
owners" according to their ignorantly biased standards.
I am surprised the application
did not ask "When you go on vacation, who cares for your pets while you
First of all, I do have
my pets covered 24/7 when I am not home for any reason, so there's the answer.
thought I was on the same page with these people running animal shelters, since
it angers me when uncaring people drop their dogs, cats, rabbits, etc., off in
the wild, or mistreat them in other ways; yet, this organization surely has a
"certain type of person" they deem morally able to care for and love
their pets---therefore, their way is to prevent most people from adopting.
Not everyone in the U.S. is married; not
working; or living on Welfare, as they apparently delight in such circumstances in determining who can become "chosen and privileged" pet owners.
I hope anyone
reading this will seriously reconsider going to any animal shelters to adopt
pets----first of all, run like heck from Animal Adoption Foundation, unless you
wish to have your potential pet adopting status judged by THEIR discriminating
Sadly, more shelters'
animals are being denied good homes; yet, so-called "non-profit" and "animal loving and rescuer" organizations like Animal Adoption Foundation are surely eager to collect all those donations and U.S. Government monies---what they don't
tell the public is how they rudely stereotype and discriminate against potential pet owners. Proves to me that animals are smarter than such nasty humans running Animal Adoption Foundation; otherwise, why else would the animals make better judgments on who they wish to have care for them in new homes? Apparently, Animal Adoption Foundation should be called "Animal Prison Foundation," since 99% of potential pet owners need not apply, in order to rescue them (animals) from such a putrid place.
