I had a wonderful experience adopting my pet from the ADL. I began as a foster for an animal that endured medical neglect which resulted in blindness and infection. When my pet ""Max"" (2month old Yorkie-Poo) was surrendered to the shelter, the medical staff did everything in their power to try to save the eye (this is why he needed to be fostered).\r
I of course grew to love him and not want to ever part so I decided to adopt him! My process was long, yes but I understand these animals have been through a lot, they must be released to someone who is truly going to commit, perticularly to an animal with an existing medical condition.\r
After the adoption process I encountered some medical problems with his problemed eye. I returned to the ADL Animal Hospital and they removed the eye to prevent future infections (it was not big deal since he couldn't see from it anyway). I was so happy to get him back and watch him recover from the surgery!\r
I unfortunately have a two pet limit at my current apartment but once I move into a bigger home, my spouse and I intednt to adopt from the ADL and rescue another special animal who deserves a good home!\r
Without the ADL the only alternative for stray, neglected and abused dogs and cats is the city pound where they face being destroyed due to over population. I am grateful they are here and stand by their true 100% no kill mission. They will go above and beyond to make any sick or injured animal adoptable!
