Complaint Review: Caring Canine Connections
Caring Canine Connections The CCC Sold us a puppy with Parvovirus for profit. More families coming forward with parvo pups from their "non-profit" Bridgewater, NJ Rockaway, NJ New Jersey and PA sales Internet listing
My family and I came across “Smith” (as they named him) on Caring Canine Connection’s posting online back in October 2016 on Adoptapet.com. They stated he was up to date with shots, ready to go home at 8 weeks to a new family, he is a German shepherd/lab mix. We applied and were accepted and told we could pick him up from the foster mom in Rockaway, NJ on Saturday, October 8th, 2016 at 1-2pm. The CCC never called my references because my friends told me they never did. The fee for adoption was $380 which I paid by check. We picked him up and have all the paperwork they gave me.
We have renamed him “Cooper” at our home and he was vibrant and fun loving and as far as we can tell healthy. He visited his new vet on Monday October 10th, 2016 at a Vet Clinic in Hamburg, NJ. [continued below]....

The point of this is to STOP the "CCC", Caring Canine Connections" of Bridgewater, NJ. of adopting out sick - near death puppies with Parvovirus for profit. My concern as well as others is that we would hate for any other family to go through this ordeal. Her vet bills ended up being well over 5k to save her puppy, and mine hit 3k. This non-profit agency needs to be stopped.
They have handed out 2 more parvo pups that have contacted us as well, the stories are all similar. One was even given out at an adoption event at a pet store in NJ! If you have experienced this as well with them, please contact me.
Parvo - The normal incubation period (time from exposure to the virus to the time when signs of disease appear) is from 7-14 days. Virus can be found in the feces several days before clinical signs of disease appear, and may last for one to two weeks after the onset of the disease. It can live YEARS on property, clothing, shoes, furniture, etc. This is a hearty virus that is very hard to kill. I had to throw out everything I had gotten for Cooper and disinfect my house head to toe with Clorox.Who knows how many puppies were adopted out and died in the hands of new owners, who knows how many other parvo cases there are from this agency, who knows how many puppies are on the way to be dished out for profit to vulnerable families. The reason of this is to STOP them! HELP US TO STOP THEM TODAY!
I personally reported to Animal Control of Rockaway, NJ and NJSPCA - both with no outcomes obviously to stop these people. I also reported to ADOPT A PET - www.adoptapet.com
If you're thinking about getting a puppy- learn from our mistake and do more research! Be patient and do your research first! This proves the adopt don't shop - isn't always the best idea!
3k debt thanks to the CCC!
