After doing my due diligence of research to find a grooming service with 4-5 stars I took my sweet girl to Camp Bow Wow in Columbia to be groomed. What I thought was going to be a great experience based off other reviews turned into a nightmare for my poor dog. When I got her home I noticed how uncomfortable she seemed, she kept licking herself in places she doesn't ever lick in so I checked her skin out and noticed she had multiple burn marks all over her body. Her vulva was severely burned to the point she yelped when she peed. Both ears were cut and burned inside and she had 2 large linear burns on the side of her face that the groomer hid by keeping her hair longer there. I took my dog to the vets right away to get her looked at and they confirmed she was burned by the clippers. They took measurements, pictures, and documented the injuries. I called Frank the owner of Camp Bow Wow and boy was he nasty. He denied the whole thing and told me the wounds were self inflicted by my dog. I ended up getting a lawyer involved only to find out animals have no rights in SC and corporate companies like Camp Bow Wow can basically get away with abusing animals. I hope by telling my story I can save a dog from getting abused by Frank and his staff.
Dr. Daniel and his staff are terrific! I recently added a lab puppy to my family from a reputable breeder in Virginia, and after having her for only…
I am a foster for Pawmetto Lifeline, and they always give me everything I need. Most of my fosters have kennel cough from being in municipal shelters and stress, etc. I am always responded to by staff if I need anything while fostering, including meds. PL is helping Richland & Lexington Counties become no-kill, and saving thousands of adoptable cats & dogs a year from euthanasia. Keep in mind, PL receives NO government assistance and is a non-profit. We are lucky to have such a wonderful organization in the Columbia Metro area!
Love how you can view your dog on camera at anytime during normal business hours!! Love the staff as well! Great place to bring your dog!!
The counselors here love and take really good care of the dogs!
I just recently adopted a dog from Palmetto Lifeline. A DAY after bringing her home she began coughing, often to the point of regurgitation. So I decided to take her to the vet today, keep in mind it is Friday, she was adopted on Tuesday. The vet kindly informed me that she is actually 7 months old, compared to 4 months like they said. She is not a lab at all, as they informed me that she is a lab mix. And she has kennel cough, more than likely contracted at Palmetto Lifeline. DO NOT ADOPT FROM THIS ADOPTION AGENCY!!!
Great Kennel with Good People who love petsTook Shadow there for boarding and groom He came out shiny and HappyWILL RETURN
Was trying to a good thing and be a foster family to a sweet little dog but Pawmetto lifeline brought this dog to me.sick with kennel cough. The dog became very ill in my care and they kept blowing me off. I had to take the dog to the ER where the dog was in. Critical condition. Our hearts are broken. How did this happen. How do you miss this. What. Idiots.
I am a nurse and i went there for my family dog and they said that my honey and I aren't suitable dog owners bc we work too much (3 days a week) and I went there to see a dog I saw on their website for my disabled father.and they said that he shouldn't take a dog outside without a leash for the first six months. We own 20 acres so why does it have to be on a leash? That sounds like a horrible life for a dog. They said he wasn't acceptable because he said that he doesnt always take his dog out on a leash. This place doesn't want to let peole adopt dogs and three days a week for work is not too much, do they only adopt to people who don't work? Also they have lifetime rights so its almost as if the dog is never fully yours. Their adoption rates are 300/dog which is a little steep for the amount of work you have to go through to even get to meet the dogs. This place is ridiculous! They will never get my money!
These ppl don't take small pets by is safety reasons... Wonder if it's be they leave dogs in attended with others....
