Complaint / review text:
So far, Lauren Rossovich of Chow Chow Rescue (of the Sierra Foothills) has ripped of 13 people for money that they paid for dogs. Here are people who are trying to help out by adopting a homeless animal and Lauren (and Tim) Rossovich steal from them. This is one of the most heartbreaking things that I have seen. Children are being affected by this tradgedy as well.
When a child thinks that they are getting a dog and their parents pay $250 for the animal, Lauren tells them that they have to wait a couple days until the animal is spayed or neutered, then Lauren doesn't call them back and won't give the animal to them. She does this over and over, padding her pocketbook with stolen money from poor unsuspecting victims. It is just horrible.
Surely there is someone out there who cares enough about animals to stop this from happening. So far, noone has helped. I am very sad about this. The Rossovich's come from money, so I have a hard time understanding why they would even do this. Alcohol may be a factor in their lack of good judgement.
Also, I thought it was a little strange that Lauren said she was taking dogs down to San Diego to a foster home and then the foster parents said that she never showed up with the dogs. Two dogs have gone so far and now three more are going today. Then I thought about it... What if Lauren was taking these animals to UC Davis, to sell them for cash? I know for a fact that Lauren doesn't care about any of the dogs at our facility, so why wouldn't she get rid of them that way? All she wants to do is bring in more dogs all the time. Her and Karl Cobler are both dishonest and theat scares me...
One of the volunteers quit and then another and then another... After this last one leaves, it will all be over, the whole Chow Chow Rescue business that is. It is a business just so you know.in every way, it is a business. It is a 501 (c) 3 corporation and is supposed to be a non-profit. Please request a financial statement from Chow Chow Rescue of the Sierra Foothills today and find out for yourself what a scam it really is.
Whatever you do, don't let rescue dogs get into the hands of scientists, wanting to perform experiments on them. No matter how much Lauren needs the money right now. It just isn't fair to the animals.
