SOMETHING TO TELL THE PEOPLE OF EDMONTON?



bad dog rescue

I recently was looking at all the rescue pages and settled on ASH Rescue out in egremont. i regret ever finding this rescue.

STORY CONTINUES BELOW

The lady running the organization has too many animals, 16+ dogs, horses, pony, sheep, lambs, goose, pigs and openly tells you how her life is a mess. Divorce, being kicked out etc.

I learned (should have been a red flag) that she rented a farm to own and the land owner is kicking her out. According to her Facebook page she has been operating since 2014, apparently has 12 years experience and uses the dogs as working sled dogs.

most of the animals live in big outdoor pens together, even cramped. she claims they are worked and trained (Crate and Leash) she even has pictures of some dogs on leashes. her animals are not registered and she doesn’t release vet information about the animals until you pay her and officially adopt.

ANOTHER POST:  Found Item at World Health Club Turned in to Reception

I fostered a dog for awhile and noticed right away the dog had no crate training, no leash training, didn’t know how to play, fetch and was scared at everything. i learned that some of her animals actually grew up with their brothers and sisters. she’s like an evil Cesar Milan, she doesn’t believe in positive reinforcement and believes that their reward is her acknowledgment of you. these dogs are afraid of humans, they are not leash trained or crate trained, they have such a deep mistrust of humans.

please do not utilize this rescue, she is a fraud and her animals are in jeopardy!

  1. You know this lady is amazing! i have worked with her personally helping take dogs to their new homes. She does amazing work! It’s funny how you assume she’s divorced or been kicked out which is FAR from true! She has a beautiful family she runs this rescue herself while her SO works out of town. What you’re saying is SO far from the truth!

    1. And to add they’re RESCUE dogs. They’re not your run of the mill backyard breeder or registered breeder dogs! they’re RESCUES. They’re not going to be perfect dogs they have baggage and need someone caring and patient which you don’t seem like the type to be.

  2. I don’t know anything about her or the rescue personally but I can’t imagine expecting a dog from a rescue to come fully trained. Isn’t it common knowledge that rescue dogs usually come with baggage? I mean they were rescued for a reason…. usually these are skills they learn within their foster home.

  3. If the animals are overcrowded, underfed, or whatever.. call the ASPCA and report her. I note that most rescues don’t have registered animals, so nothing wrong there, but all should be vet checked and people should be able to see the vet info before adopting.

    1. ASPCA and other forms of regulatory structure have been out there & this rescue has been cleared by them EVERY time some silly over-reactor thinks they know what they are talking about.

    1. Wow, Heather, all you got out of that whole post was a chance to attack her spelling? And then you made a spelling mistake of your own, only to hide it by editing your scathing remark after it was pointed out to you. You totally ROCK and are obviously so much smarter and more educated than the poster. I bet you feel so much better about yourself now. Well done!

  4. This is a husky based rescue. Not enjoying confinement, being outdoors, living in groups, all normal for huskies. They are also rescues, do being shy and a little out of sorts in a new home, makes sense.
    Are the animals fed, in good condition?

    1. She did report it. The ASPCA investigated and found NO reason for issue with the rescue.

    1. My old doggie never fetched anything, would cower if you threw a ball, and flies off the end of a leash like a kite on a hurricane.
      But, she’s sweet and follows me everywhere. I got her from EHS when she was about 7 so completely unknown history.

  5. How she cares and houses her own personal sled dogs and then the rescues she fosters is setting standards in her area. She has also worked with the ASPCA at their request with helping with difficult animals. They’ve been to her place. They have no concerns. Also fostering means teaching the dogs manners and building their confidence. Fostering can be a challenge and isn’t for everyone which is why there’s such a need for foster homes.

    1. She doesn’t need to be reported to the SPCA instead of passing judgement why don’t you go and meet the woman and find out for yourself. Just thought I should let you know though the SPCA has been there and everything was in perfect order

  6. It is so obvious that you have no knowledge of sled dogs. Sled dogs are not raised to fetch a ball. You also make a comment about the pens stating that they are in large pens yet they are crowed. There are two dogs per pen. You are not consistant in your attempt to maliciously hurt someone. I know this wonderful woman that you are thrashing and your facts are NOT correct.
    We do not train our sled dogs to sit stay or come. They are taught gee and ha, on by and other similar commands.
    Why would you return a animal you are fostering to someone who is such a bad person? You are lacking credibility.

    1. hmmm, Fosters are for socializing, house, leash, and kennel training – and a lot of driving to and from vet clinic and extra classes if a dog; so Foster family is building those skills for fostering… I don’t think any pet arrives fully trained, whether from Rescue or purchased puppy, they all need training…. Sorry, that’s the whole point in Fostering, mostly socializing and house training, the food, kennel, and vetting is provided.. Not all dogs are interested in balls, etc… Our Maltese wud prefer to just cuddle up, and some breeds are too smart to understand that they keep bringing u something that u keep throwing away, eventually they stop getting it… 😉 or even too lazy to think about fetch as being fun! 😉
