This Rescue, while it may be wonderful to the dogs in their care, I can't say about that, seems to hold some rather extremist views.
They Quote the HSUS, won't adopt to you if you have an intact animal, and further, will send you "educational material."
They seem to hold the view that all breeders are awful, and I assume, as with most prejudice, will glom onto anything they can find to support that view, even if it means disparaging other rescues.
My MIL is looking for a senior female basenji to adopt, and, as we proved with Aries, we will go to lengths to get the right basenji, but, even before they added these things about breed rescue, I could not support that rescue, due to their HSUS quoting, thus never inquired about her.
This really is a good rescue. I've been chatting back and forth for a few weeks now and I know their hearts are in the right place. They are just as frustrated as many rescues out there who have to deal with people dumping animals. And to make things worse, her breeder did finally come forward and contact them after OVER a month because they didn't realize she was missing.
Whhhaaaaaaat?! How can you not realize a dog is missing? This same breeder also never had a mammary tumor removed on her for OVER 3 years. (BTW BRAT returned this girl to the Breeder over 3 years ago when the people she sold her too dumped her in a Seattle shelter after she developed a mammory tumor.. at the time we had NO idea how neglectful she was and we've learned our lesson.) Additionally she refused to take the dog back, refused to reimburse them the $200 they've put into this dog surgically AND in basically the same breath said they have a litter on the ground right now for $1200 a piece. In my book, this Rescue has earned their spot in Heaven for taking this girl in and helping her and her breeder has earned a first class ticket to you know where.
If your MIL is interested, the vet said that she's honestly the nicest Basenji he's ever had the pleasure of meeting. She's housebroken, quiet and an all around nice girl. Vet also said her insides were very healthy, and her uterus was in great condition even though the people this 'Breeder' sold her too bred her every heat cycle.
