57 House All Breed Rescue Sold me a parvo puppy Nashville Tennessee
I adopted a 9 week old puppy from 57 House All Breed Rescue on Saturday. With my puppy came an Official Interstate Health Certificate Of Dogs, Cats, and other Non-Livestock Species from the Tennessee Department of Agriculture Regulatory Services-Animal Health. It was signed by Accreddited Veterinarian Jeremiah Wojnarowski. I also got a vaccination Record from 57 House All Breed Rescue stating my puppy was vaccinated for Parvo and all his other puppt shots and that he was de-wormed and is "Great" condition upn adoption.
Well, a day and a half later, my new puppy was lethargic. Had diahrea and vomitting. I rushed him to my vet and he was diagnosed with parvo, a fatal and highly contagious virus. My vet advised me that he would have been infected at least a week ago. Which means he was infected while still at 57 House Rescue. I immediately was in fear for my other dog (who was vaccinated, but still a possibility of infection) as well as my mother's dog. If I was notified by 57 House that the puppy wasn't Health Checked and up-to-date on shots, I would have never let him be in contact with my other dog and my mom's dog.
Then I got the call from my vet that he also has hookworms and roundworms. 57 House gave me a Vaccination Record saying he was given wormers. Now I have to explain to my 2 year old son why he can't touch his new puppy and why he can't go out into the back yard and front lawn to play which is most likely infected with parasites. My husband also is very upset that out perfect lawn has to be bleached where the dog relieves himself to kill the parasites and parvo because we can't let him go anywhere else because that would be putting the neighborhood's dogs at risk for contracting this deadly virus.
This week has been an absolute nightmare. Now let me get into the costs of this all. We just recently lost out German Shepherd to cancer. That cost us 5 grand. When we decided to adopt a puppy for our heartbroken son, we thought we were doing the right thing. I want to know why a $16 snap test to test for parvo isn't included in the $300 adoption fee I paid for this puppy. I also want to know why he was infested with worms and covered in fleas and ticks. I have adopted a rescue dog before and from my understanding, it is unheard of for a puppy to be placed in a home in this kind of condition. I never had this kind of horrible experience before. I spent well over 1 grand on this puppy for medication, vet visits, and special foods etc. etc. 57 House Rescue offered to give me my $300 adoption fee back....but I still haven't recevied it. He also advised me he was not doing to well with the funds and it would have to wait to take out of his personal account. Well guess what? If I had the funds, I would've spent it on a pure breed german shepherd from a reputable breeder. Now, I'm trying to make ends meet to save the sick puppy he gave me.
I took my vacation week this week to train our new puppy. Now I am spending it bleaching floors and destroying my backyard, syringe feeding my sick puppy, keeping him locked in a separate room while trying to explain to my 2 year old why he can't play with the puppy. Locking my other dog in his crate 24/7 to prevent exposure, and my two cats locked in the basement so they won't catch the worms. I also am worrying myself sick that my son could've becoe infected with the parasites and haven't slept in days.
I am beyond disbelief and can't believe this place would ever do something like this. 57 House All Breed Rescue really needs to re-consider being a rescue group or test these puppies before adotping them out. Please tell me what my $300 paid for? Also, they advised that all their puppies are brought to the local groomer before going to their new homes. Who is the local groomer? A 12 year old with a hose and dishwasher soap? Because my little puppy was infested with fleas and ticks.
On a lighter note, my little Nash (formerly Tanner) is now eating a little on his own and has stopped with the bloody diahrea and vommitting. I am praying he will pull through. As far as I am concerned....I am 57 HOUSE RESCUE (my house number ironically is also 57) and not this poor excuse of a rescue group, 57 House All Breed Rescue. My husband and I are nursing our puppy back to health and hoping for a full recovery.
Please don't adopt from 57 House All Breed Rescue.
