Do not go here!!

I diddo all the negative reviews about this place. I was naive and adopted a dog from them 3 days ago. I thought he seemed" too calm to be true. " The dog let my son carry him around the place like a toy. I questioned his calmness and asked if he was sick. The woman told me that he was just a great dog. She said she had taken him home for a week and just brought him back that day! There is NO way she took him home with her...if she had, she KNEW he was sick. I finally listened to my gut and took the puppy to the doctor today and he is very, very sick. This is my son' x-mas present...my son with special needs who worked hard on some life skills to earn this dog. My son who is adopted and has already had way too much loss in his life. OH, I am SOOOO stupid. This place needs to be shut down!! They are trying to expand...they need to be closed. My son and I wanted to rescue a dog and we can be happy that we have...but if he dies, my son will be more than devastated. My rating is NEGATIVE 5
Cons: too many to state

Basically ditto on everything that has already been said about this organization. My experience was that the operator of this organization, "Debbie," wanted to meet me in a public location which ended up being the parking lot of a Denny's at her request. When she showed up a half-hour late after I had driven over an hour and arrived on time, she brought the dog along with a few others in a old minivan that reeked of urine.
The animal I wanted to see had some sort of skin infection that she never mentioned even though I mentioned I had another dog at home. Debbie stated that she probably got it from an attack by another animal in her care. She was treating it with a topical medication that she did not have with her and that she wasn't even sure of the name. Oh...and of course there were no veterinary records!
When asked for a record of vaccination, spaying etc, she pulled out a container and started frantically searching and ended up not being able to find any. FFAL claims that all animals have received such treatment, though when asked she just said it was an unnecessary expense for these animals to actually see a vet and they just administered the vaccinations themselves.
Not knowing what exactly was going on with the pet I wanted to adopt, I was uncomfortable just forking over the money for her when I would have to take her straight to my vet to be checked out before coming home and risking my current pet's health.
I told Debbie I was willing to do that, and that I would only compensate her for what she had actually spent on the animal. Of course that was not acceptable for her. There was no explanation or justification for her treatment. She just snatched up the poor little dog and took off without another word said, and I was very polite to her.
A little more research revealed that I was not the only person turned off by FFAL's shady operation. FFAL is described as a non-profit rescue organization, yet for the low price of $750 you can currently adopt certain breeder give-ups they have taken in and have available! The pet I was looking at was going to be $150, which seemed reasonable at the time, but not considering all the care the animal received was $10 worth of vaccinations likely purchased from 1800petmeds.
I don't know where she is getting her animals from, but it is a shame that FFAL is operating under the pretense of such an organization when so many other great organization exist.
Pros: none compared to reputable organizations
Cons: Animals can be in poor health, Rescue animals sold at breeder prices
