ollys place is a wonderful experience, come and somewhere I think everyone should have .. The way the animals are allowed to socialize with you, and each other is great
Molly's is a wonderful place, I'm happy that that's where I went and I didn't decide to go anywhere else. The staff there was very friendly and help me with any and all questions I had. The way the animals get to socialize with each other is great, it makes for a lot of happy puppies. From what I saw the staff treated each and every animal with respect and love. If anyone is thinking about adopting a pet I think you should consider mollys very strong
Yesterday a Saturday, my husband and I adopted a dog for my son. We were looking at a boxer but were directed to a small chihuahua mix who was calm and very loving. We were told by a worker that he was playful when he first came in but like a switch he became withdrawn. I assumed it was probably due to all the dogs running around and he was smaller than most of the small dogs. We did our paper work and waited for him to come out from the bath, Lori the owner, never got up from her computer and looked at him.
After arriving home we thought he would "perk up", he just laid around he did drink some water but wouldn't eat.
Sunday morning he came in from outside sat down and a large amount of puss squirted out of his side, we immediately took him to an emergency vet (Molly's was not open for another 2 hours) where we were told his temp was 103.8, he had a bad infection and a possible hernia. I called Molly's and spoke with Lori who told me that I needed to bring the dog there if I wanted free care for him. Keep in mind he is already hooked up to IV antibiotics, she told me I was wrong about his temp and that is was probable an absess that started after I brought him home. I wasn't even 24 hours later. When I asked if she could call the vet and find out when he could get there I was told she would not call until I brought the dog in. And she personally looked at his incision before he left which is a lie she never got up from the computer.
I told her about the worker who told me about the change in this dog and she said he doesn't work there full time and he was wrong.
I'm thankful I saved the dog, I think his infection would have gone unnoticed, I will be suing for my vet bills.
If I could give them negative stars I would. We adopted a kitten from them, after our last cat passed. We were so happy with Oscar!!! But had a respiratory and eye infection. When we asked them about it, they said to bring him in and they would treat him.
My wife took Oscar in and was told that she had to sign a letter to surrender. She immediately questioned it, and did so multiple times. They reassured her that it was a technicality and we would get Oscar back. She signed it reluctantly.
Today I called them to find out the status if Oscar. I told them my wife dropped off our cat and wanted a time frame. I got put on hold and was told "She is not better yet. "
I told them first of all my cat is a boy. Can you please tell me the name of the cat she is referring to so I know it's the same cat, considering that I never mentioned his name. She refused. This went on for about 15 minutes. She transferred me to her supervisor who when I said I just want to pick Oscar up and take him to my vet. I was told I was being immature and I could come get my $200 and go somewhere else. I told her that's not the point I want my cat back. She hung up on me.
My wife went out there to see if Oscar was there. She went into the kitten room and saw a kitten she believes is him. She said she was going to take him back. The said no, and wouldn't let her out of the room. She told them she was pregnant, and couldn't stay in there, to no avail. Another woman came in and shoved her. My wife reminded her that she was pregnant and the lady said she didn't give a f****, and my wife screamed for someone to call the cops. Police were called.
Charges pending, tune into your local news because we have comtacted every news station, and the Patriot.
I WILL expose them for who they are!!! Also feel free to read any article on line about them. If you don't believe me, google them!!
I Love This Place – Where are you people getting your information? You can have a dog spayed/neutered, microchipped, and all shots for $75.00???? Where's this Vet at because I want to go there. You also need to consider that there is a rent to pay and staff to pay. Despite what you might think rescues have very little in volunteers and freebies. We've adopted 2 dogs from Molly's and couldn't of asked for a better experience. Our first dog cost us $360.00 - he was going to be put down at a Humane Society and that's how they ended up at Molly's (and yes, I do have that paperwork from the Humane Society - it came with his history). Our second dog was $425.00 and I was told he was from a recently closed down puppy mill (course there would be no paperwork for that). I've always found the staff very nice and accommodating. If you're looking for a free or cheap dog check your newspaper listings. Rescues have to charge to pay their overhead. I've been in much much worse looking places...Molly's isn't one of them.
Right to the point - We bought a rescue dog for $550 from Molly s. Price was a bit high but I figured it was helping a charity and not too bad for a healthy purebred Boston Terrier. Within one week the dog was taken the vet three times, twice for infections and the third time for Emergency Exploratory surgery. We asked the owner for a refund of the adoption fees to help cover medical costs and she refused. Go to the SPCA to rescue a dog - this place is a nightmare!!!!!
Had a great experience adopting our kitten from here. Got the kitten, he was fixed, and up to date on vaccinations. We had got a 'free' farm cat prior to this kitten, and until we fixed her, and got her immunizations, it cost way more than the adoption fee at Molly's Place. This kitten was well socialized and ready to come home with us. I loved going into the kitten room. The kitten love was overwhelming. Had a great opportunity to visit with several cats all at once and pick one. Although, I think, he really picked me.
Rip people off who loves pets, they get these dogs and cats for free, preying off the poor animals and the people who love them and are vulnerable, and ask for huge amount of money more then getting a pet from a reputable breeder, then most times the animals are sick due to the poor conditions they are kept in, contiminated with illness, it will cost you a fortunate in vet bills after the pet is home and they will not reimburse you-thieves
Great place for pets, needs better people skills. – This review is based upon observations of the facilities at Molly's, in combination with observations of the replies to reviewers on various websites. For purposes of simplicity, I will divide this review into pros and cons.
PROS:1)The animals at Molly's appear to be well socialized, as evidenced by the free roam policy. This is a big plus for anyone considering adopting, who already has pets at home.2) The staff at Molly's clearly care a great deal about the animals they take care of. 3) The room where the dogs were was very clean, and any accidents were immediately cleaned up.4) Molly's offers a large number and variety of pets to choose from.5) The senior staff appear to be very knowledgeable regarding medical issues that pets may experience.
CONS:1) While free roam provides great opportunity for socialization, it also provides a higher potential for spread of infection. However, I would imagine that Molly's makes provision for isolation of any animal that has clear signs of an infectious process.2) Responses to negative reviews from the staff at Molly's are quite scary, to say the least. I have read every thing from moral judgements,defamation of character, to calling people liars, idiots, stupid, unintelligent, and more.Perhaps because of their loyalty to Molly's , and their strong feelings in caring for animals, they lack the ability to objectively read reviews, which in all reality, are simply opinions.This alone would make me pause before considering adopting from Mollie's. I believe most people prefer to form their own opinions - at least I do.....so reading negative reviews wouldn't influence me as much as the attitudes of the employees responding to them. Reviews can be a valuable tool, if used properly. They are meant to give the facility an opportunity to examine their policies, procedures and practices , and see if there is potential for betterment and personal growth. Much could be gained if they would learn to be proactive, instead of reactive. Dismissal of others opinions makes one appear inherently prideful and narcissistic, and personal attacks seem rabid and full of assumptions. This type of response to reviews does nothing to benefit Molly's or their cause;in fact, any potential adopter reading these responses would be entirely justified in seeking a pet elsewhere, for fear of experiencing the same kind of attack if they should have a negative experience at Molly's, and dare to comment on it in a review.
In summary: Molly's is a clean facility staffed with caring people, and it offers a large variety of adoptable pets. It might benefit them, if they could learn to interact with people, as well as they do with animals.Every action has a consequence, and unfortunately, current actions by Molly's employees as evidenced by their responses on review sites, do absolutely nothing to encourage anyone to consider Molly's Place when thinking about adopting.Your responses to reviews is the clearest indicator of how you treat the public. Advice? It's not realistic to expect 100% good reviews. Learn to accept and expect the bad with the good, and learn to respond to negative reviews in a positive, productive manner.
