This is just terrible, we can't believe an organization out to do good has done so much evil.
Rosa Torres and her 4-year-old son lost their pup Raffiki when she ran out of their backyard. Sadly Raffiki wasn't tagged or microchipped or anything so when Karma Rescue picked her up, they renamed her Kami and adopted her out to a new family. That's awful!!
Torres went all over her neighborhood, posted fliers, checked shelters, gathered volunteers, did everything she could to find her pup. By the time she tracked her dog to Karma Rescue's website, her pup had already been placed in a new home!! Rosa applied to get her dog back but she "did not meet the qualifications that Karma looks for when adopting a dog to a home," according to Karma Rescue.
The problem is Torres and her son live with her parents in a small rental home in a not that great part of town. The family that adopted Raffiki/Kami made a $300 donation so this whole thing just reeks of elitism.
A Karma Rescue employee resigned over the whole incident, sighting the elitism as the cause, saying:
"This is somebody's own dog, and you're making the judgment and denying them the dog back without even bothering to talk to them, get to know them, let them explain what happened. That is just wrong."
That is just awful. Especially because the family that adopted the dog is unwilling to give them back!
Karam Rescue is unwilling to help and the family won't give the pup back so there's not much Torres can do. She now has to explain to her son that his dog isn't coming home.
This is just awful. Shame on Karma Rescue. We hope karma comes around and bites them in the faces!
