As your website refused to allow me a response to the libelous review by Ms Winiski, I am posting this as a new review. I have been to Ellen's Rescue on numerous occasions (including in her home) and have yet to observe any of the conditions stated in Ms. Winiski's review. What her agenda is in concocting such vile accusations is anyone's best guess. Ellen's sole focus and concern is the welfare of the dogs in her care until such time as they are placed in responsible homes. I am familiar with her veterinarian and am well aware that all of her dogs are completely vetted. However, as in any rescue, some dogs may not arrive in the best of condition and require some time to recover. In this case, one can hardly hold Mrs. Miller responsible for the poor care of previous owners. In addition, Ellen's Rescue does provide long term care for some disabled and elderly animals. As a board member of Close2Home Animal Rescue, Ms Winiski should be very well aware that not all dogs, unless one picks and chooses only those without any problems. arrive in the best of health. I fail to understand the spiteful attitude which must have prompted her vicious attack upon Mrs. Miller.

I work for a local veterinarian. The Parvo virus is a highly contagious and sometimes fatal condition. It is spread when a dog comes in contact with the feces of an infected dog. The virus can remain infectious on contaminated ground for five months or more. As a result, you pet can contract parvo anywhere dogs come together, such as parks, kennels, shelters, and pet stores. So just because a pet is adopted from the humane society, it is a good idea to have them vet checked and vaccinated. Because of this, however unfortunate, a high number of pets from kennels can contract the parvovirus through no fault of the facility. Humane societies are trying to help, try not to be so accusatory. Thanks~
I've just adopted my second German Shepherd from the Parkersburg Humane Society. The first one I adopted 6 years ago, passed away at 12 years of age. My new 6 year old "baby", is a beautiful, extraordinarily trained German Shepherd, who speaks German commands. His brother Zeus is still available. You will have to go through the adoption process like I've done two separate times. The Humane Society workers and volunteers truly love the animals in their care, and they're doing the best that they can with limited resources. The recently opened Spot Clinic, provides low cost spaying/neutering, a service which is needed very badly in Parkersburg.
I'm an adopter from this rescue of 4 dogs one recently passed away this summer from old age. I know personaly that this is a great rescue and she treats all of her animals with love and care. I adopted my first one from her and then went back for more. Have also sent friends to her and they have had no problems. We all have had a bad time with fleas this year because of the mild winter and anybody that has pets should know that. Ask your vet if you dont believe me about the fleas! Since i have the same vet as Ellen i know he doesn't give out paperwork unless you ask for it.
I have personally adopted a dog and my mother adopted a dog from this rescue. Both dogs were healthy and well taken care of. They both were free from any parasites, fleas, or sickness. Both were house broken and very well mannered. I would definitely adopt from Ellen's Rescue for my dog instead of buying from a pet shop or out of a newspaper, or adopting from any Humane Society.
