I've had both positive and negative experiences with Forever Home, and because of this, have very mixed feelings about the organization (that's why I deducted a star). A disclaimer, though, if this shelter will adopt to you, please work with them! Animals come first, and this review is mainly to give them feedback in areas that they could improve upon. This is strictly my account of a personal experience. Positive first -- we adopted our Shepherd-Rotweiller mix from them about ten years ago, and he was the absolute love of our lives. He was truly the best dog and best thing that could have ever happened to us, and for that, we are grateful to Forever Home Rescue. I would also like to add that in dealing with them, I have dealt with some of the rudest, most egocentric people I have ever met in my life. I truly believe that shelters should prioritize finding loving, safe homes for their animals, but instead, I think a lot of it is about ego and trying to degrade and shame others -- it's very strange. I think they've mixed up their missions. Like I said, we adopted our dog, Shep, from this organization ten years ago. I went back a year later after bringing him home and was interested in adopting another dog. I was accused of lying, to the point of bringing me to tears, of having adopted a dog from the organization and therefore I was not allowed to adopt another. I was degraded and humiliated in front of other people. A few days later, I received a phone call from a woman meekly apologizing to me and telling me she had found record of my dog that I had adopted and asked if I was still interested in adopting. I wasn't, mostly because I had found another shelter to adopt to me (the first one I applied to after Forever Home -- funny, isn't it?), but also because I wasn't interested in an organization that treated people this way. Even if I had not adopted a dog from you before, why would it matter? Shouldn't you be more concerned with finding animals loving, wonderful forever homes -- like in your namesake? I'm writing this review today because I, again, wanted to adopt another dog after losing two of mine over this last year. Another shelter called my vet and told me that I got an absolutely "glowing" recommendation, and in addition, perfect personal recommendations -- but it's not good enough for this shelter. It's really a shame that they do this and keep dogs from finding forever homes, and in turn, have less space to help other dogs in need. Would probably not recommend unless you fit their "standards" that determine how much respect they will give you. It's really very disappointing that they treat people this way. I can't remember the woman's name who publicly (and wrongly) humiliated me, but if it helps, I believe that she might have been a veterinarian and someone who had a main hand in running the shelter. It's also worth noting that she wasn't even the one who called back to apologize -- it was someone else. Very embarrassing. It was like dealing with a child who was having a temper tantrum. Really looking forward to adopting my next forever dog from a shelter who prioritizes their animals and also is respectful to human beings :)

We adopted our now 2 yr old Australiann Cattle Dog pup here in 2018 and we're now looking to adopt a 2nd rescue dog from them! They're professional, affordable, rescue dogs from the south, quick to respond, etc. They truly love their dogs and diligently check out each potential adopted prior to approval. I highly recommend adopting with them! Thank you for our furever pup!!

I adopted my dog, Avery, from Forever Homes. I have nothing but great things to say about their rescue. They were honest about the adoption process and very responsive. They let you know where you are in line for a dog, and the dog you put in for might not be available based on what's best for the dog. The foster parents were amazing and answered all my questions and were honest about the work that needed to be put in for rescuing a new dog. Based on the fact that I couldnt meet Avery until adoption, I was a little nervous. Forever Homes made sure I felt well informed and very excited about adopting. If Avery ever needs a sibling, I'd go through them. To all adopters, be patient, they are trying to do what's best for the animal!

Love,love,love. The adoption of our dog from Forever Homes was thorough. They interviewed my referrals. They kept me updated. I still keep in contact with them. When it comes time to adopt again, I will go through them. Highly recommend.

A very well-organized adoption agency..take care about their pets just as much as they care about the prospective owners.. they also follow up and keep in touch and provide great support...

They have a very extensive gluten free menu which is awesome as it tends to be a limiting factor as to where we can go out and eat too (my wife has a gluten intolerance). She got the lobster roll. Tons of meat, but she said it was a little dry. She asked for some melted butter and the waitress happily got more than enough at no extra price, so problem solved there. I got the swordfish which also thought was just a tad over cooked, b and the plate was a little small. I would have liked more asparagus. All and all great menu, good but not great food, good service, cute place.

Absolutely obnoxious and rude people that enjoy a little of power they've got. All other agencies I have applied to at least offered help or guidance and tried to make it work if they see interest in a puppy.
