Place is a NIGHTMARE
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. The fourth visit to the vet, the dog was diagnosed with EAR MITES (common in barn cats)! 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!!!!!

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. Dismis...

You can keep having my review removed I'll keep replacing it
I got my dog there awhile back and something fishy was going on, I could tell, only to come home and do some research and through Lori Johnston's dockets find that she had six charges of failure to keep a kennel in sanitary and humane condition last May along with a few other dog related charges. I also did a little more research and found that in 2006 she was charged with theft of a dog, although I could not find this on her dockets, not everything shows up on public dockets. You can read the discussion about it if you google ""Rescue owner charged in dog ""theft"", Lori Johnston"". Her charges for the dog theft were dropped to a misdemeanor ""failure to keep accurate kennel records"". I felt like something fishy was going on but I couldn't exactly point to it....

Rewarding Experience at Molly's Place
My husband & I were truly amazed to see the animals loose & not caged when we arrived at Molly's. The doors were securely guarded so no pets would get out of the shelter. Place was clean both times we visited & we enjoyed interacting with all the pets. If any of them would have had an accident (as all animals will do), I'm sure it would have been cleaned up immediately. Isn't that what you would do at your home. If you love animals as much as we do, you expect accidents, it's a part of it!\r Everyone at the shelter was accommodating & extremely courteous. It's an hour ride from where we live. The first time we visited, the dog we were interested in was being adopted when we arrived. We were disappointed since we had just lost our precious Maltese, Peaches. Lori told us they had a Maltese with puppies & as soon as the pups were old enough to leave the mother, we could adopt her. Lori could tell how upset I was over losing our dog and she was extremely compassionate.\r My husband & I decided we would wait for this dog, Maggie. (Now we call her Maggie Mae, as after we brought her home, we said Maggie Mae is here to stay!) We are so very glad we waited. She is sweet, precious and loving and has helped fill the hole in my heart made from the loss of our dog, Peaches.\r I would recommend Molly's Place to all who are interested in saving an animal. That's what Molly's Place does every day..saves animals lives and finds good homes for them.\r Molly's Place made a favorable impression on us and we definitely would return if we ever decide on another animal....

I adopted my new kitty from Molly's Place about 3 months ago. I decided to go to Molly's Place and check it out as i had passed the place in my travels. The staff were very polite and helpful. I looked at both the cats and the kittens. I asked about the kittens and was told that a 6 month old kitten would be $150. I found this reasonable as the kitten had all necessary shots and vaccinations and had been neutered. I filled out an adoption application and was approved. I did not ask them to ""hold"" the kitten. I decided for myself that if he was still there on pick up day he would be the lucky one. I went back on Saturday and the staff were again friendly and polite. I had purchased a cat carrier that needed to be assembled and one of the workers assembled it for me while I checked to see if the lucky kitten was still available. He was, and they identified him by microchip and let him play while I finished my final paper work and paid. The woman behind the counter was polite. The kittens nails were clipped before he was placed in the carrier. Cecil is a very happy and so far healthy kitty. I did take him to my own vet and he was found to be perfectly healthy and up to date with his shots. I have owned 4 cats in my life as an adult.Binker - male - main coon purchased from a breedergreat catlots of health problems throughout his life (cost me a fortune) lived to be 18 years old.Boo Boo - male - stray found outside our doorhealthy healthy healthyis presently 10 years oldPooty - female - adopted from Furry Friends Networkloving wonderful animaldied suddenly without warning at the age of 8 years.Cecil - male - adopted from Molly's Placehealthy, happy, loving animalso far so good 9 months old.People should understand no matter where you get an animal from its an animal and like a human that animal make get sick or die for a number of reason.It's not a product you get from a store like an iPod that has been manufacturedthere are no guarantees ...
