Recruiters (Broken promises/Fat lies)
« on: January 19, 2011, 10:24:19 am »
If you love animals AND are in a position to help, please help this bamboozled ESL teacher and his/her little doggie. It looks like this ESL teacher specifically requested housing that was okay with pets, but sounds like the landlord is now having a sh#t fit and EVICTING the little doggie. Looks like some #@*% lied for a quick buck.

I wrote to this person to assist in any way I could, but have not heard back. Hope s/he did not do anything rash.

I shouldnt be writing this until I am more emotionally stable, but I feel like my dog (one of the most stable things in my life) is being ripped out of my life and I am completely powerless to it.

I have two dogs. I jsut moved to a new city with a new apt. I havent even been here two weeks yet and the landlord stormed my apt today afterwork saying the dogs have to go. No reason except he is an ******* and fears theyll shed and is unhappy about having to mop his god damn halls twice a day now.

Obvisoulsy, my school wont help me (they signed a contract) and my recruitment agency is suggesting I BUY another apt to keep them in. I cannot afford that.

In a storm of incomprehensible screaming and tears the ******* said I can keep one dog. (He is oblivious to my cat.). This kills me because I TOLD MY R.AGENCY THAT I NEEDED AN APT THAT ALLOWS PETS BEFORE I SIGNED A CONTRACT!. I get the OK and now I am here, signed into a year contract and forced to give up one of my babies.

And tehre is nothing I can do.

So I am here, pleading with some sweet dog loving soul, who wants a dog for just a year while they are here. Who want a dog but dont want to take the dog home to their country afterwards, to foster my dog for me. I had planned to take all three pets home with me. My adopted dog and cat lived comfortably for a year in paju city before I moved to this new school. I cant imagine my life (my life after Korea, my life with a backyard) without both of them.

If you can foster them until you are already to go home again. Please let me know.

i dont know how to put pics up, but message me!

I would suggest posting this on animalrescuekorea.org. I'm sorry I can't help.If the issue is literally cleaning the halls, how about offering to clean your floor's hallway each evening for free in exchange for keeping both dogs? Also, offer to make an additional pet deposit to your security deposit. Extra money always helps!

Good luck:)

Will post on animalrescuekorea.org as soon as my account is approved by a moderator.

Also, this is not my doggie. I wrote to the person that posted an ad asking for help on Craig's List (have no idea who this person is, other than s/he can use some help) to offer to speak to the landlord and recruiter, and bring this to a resolution, i.e. I would offer extra money for the first month, if the CL poster was short, and daily cleaning by the person on CL (just as you had thought).

In addition, I asked the CL poster to forward any written communication s/he has with the recruiter, so I could confront both the recruiter and school (after s/he was done with teaching at that school).

Thanks for caring.

Don't worry, the person who posted it on Craigslist also posted the same thing on animalrescuekorea.org already.

I saw it a while back (the ad was from early December), and contacted the poster, but apparently the dog has already found a long-term foster home. So I guess everything worked out!
