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