AVOID!!! NO COMMUICATION1
When we arrived today (Sunday) we were advised (after a long wait) that viewing was on a "first come, first serve basis". There were people in front of us (also interested in the same dog - Millie - so basically our appointment was worthless. Missed out on giving a home to a lovely little dog! Extremely disappointed and upset.
So - word of warning - AVOID this place. I will now look to The Blue Cross in Burford who were exceptional when my mum adopted her cat from there. Blue Cross were very professional which certainly cannot be said of Cheltenham Animal Shelter. The place is a shambles with no communication whatsoever!
Don’t get your hopes up.1
Our dog wasn't castrated and after we demanded it be done we were told it can make their behaviour worse so they weren't prepared to do it (they did but only 3 days before we took him home, fun) and he came to us with a parasite in his gut which took 2 weeks of granuals to get rid of (luckily it went)
They only want you to rescue the dogs they pick.1
Got home, rung my boss, partner rung their boss, sorted out a accomdation. Told the neighbours, got extremely excited.
Got a phone call the next day saying we wasnt allowed him as he needed a home with a dog already which was absolutely Not told to us during the interview.
Spoke to Erica regarding her lying and putting us on a wild goose chase to find accommodation which we did for nothing and she said she wasnt the dog handler so she didnt know what the dog needed. So unprofessional, it's scary these people looks after animals!
My advice; dont go to Erica. She will ADMIT she has no idea what she's doing as she doesn't even handle the dogs. Complete waste of time.
Im a home willing to rescue, they are a rescue centre, ive been rejected twice for no reason durin
