LAP DOG RESCUE
A micro chip saved Sassy's life! Another DEAD BEAT ADOPTER! KRISTI ROSE adopted Sassy, an adorable dachshund mix puppy in April of 2006. On September 9th, 2010 I received an e-mail from the director of Animal Health Services at Auburn University in Alabama claiming they had a female dog who's micro chip was traced back to my rescue. Apparently, Kristi Rose did not register the chip as advised while completing the adoption process. I was very upset to hear that one of my rescue dogs was being held at a research facility. I called Kirsti several times. She never returned any of my calls. I finally located her on facebook. When I asked what happened to the dog she adopted from me, she said she "gave it" to an extended family member. She had no idea where the dog was. MY CONTRACT CLEARLY STATES THAT IF THE DOG IS NO LONGER ABLE TO STAY WITH THE ADOPTIVE FAMILYL, HE/SHE IS TO BE RETURNED TO LAP DOG RESCUE!!! After I advised Ms. Rose of Sassy's where abouts and that she was in violation of her contract, I did not here from her again. Because the director at this research facility followed protocol, "Sassy" was flown back to Houston, TX at the cost $322.00 and is not being used for research. Sassy will be examined by my vet. I am praying she is not heartworm positive. Her teeth look terrible and will surely need to be cleaned. Kristi, if you're reading this, please feel free to contact me with regards to your financial obligation to this dog!!!!
Every reputable rescuer will tell you this is a devastating event. We do our very best to place the animals we rescue in the very best homes with people who are caring, loving and abiding. People often say rescues are very hard to adopt from, this is why. An adopter who looks good on paper may turn out to be a dead beat. Apologies for my ranting. This whole situation could have been avoided if Ms. Rose would've adhered to her contract.
Who We Are
LAP Dog Rescue stands for Love and Patience. I am not taking any animals at this time. I would also like to focus on the animals that are dumped in Waller. Waller just recently formed an animal control and has a humane society, neither of which actually save animals. It is up to the kindness and generocity of our citizens to help those animals that have been left on our country roads to fend for themselves. PLEASE GIVE GENEROUSLY TO YOUR LOCAL RESCUE GROUP OR SHELTER
