  • 1. Warning to public

    by: wronged

    We wanted to adopt a dog. We found a dog we liked. We also liked the 2 week foster-to-adopt program, and we went home with the puppy. Two days later, we had to return the dog because the dog was sick - turns out he had Parvo and was not checked out by their vet before he was released to our home. That infected our home and it had to be cleaned top to bottom in bleach. After over a week of waiting for the dog to get out of the vet hospital, we found out the shelter's vet wanted to barter his services and the vet bill in trade for the dog. After a week battle against this, the shelter called to say that they decided to go with the vet. After having exposure to Parvo in the home, the length of time before we can safely bring another puppy in our home is questionable. I would be very cautious if you try to adopt from this shelter. Hopefully, what happened to us won't happen to any other potential and hopefully pet parents.

    Pros

    Adoption days twice a week

    Cons

    Adoption process

  • 2. Great shelter!

    by: kikgirl2

    This was one of the places I was looking at when I was searching for a dog, and they have wonderful animals and people who truly seem to be in it just for that reason, the animals. I would definately recommend this place to others in search of a great pet, it is in my top list for shelters. We need so many more people who care about animals like places like this do!

    Pros

    Great place, great animals

    Cons

    None I know of

  • 3. No kill

    by: jduchette

    There is so much devotion at places like this. They all need help to expand their services.\n\nI wish that all animals could be so lucky to have help like this. We have so much power to help. I am so happy that no kill shelters are out there.\n\nI wish more people would look into a no kill shelter for a pet or any shelter for a pet before going to a pet store!

    Pros

    No Kill

    Cons

    I am affiliated with this shelter and am very PROUD to be. This shelter is a strict no-kill rescue and we have a great staff of all volunteers. The shelter is located in Southfield and if you are interested in volunteering, please contact me for more information.

    Pros

    Very friendly, warm and caring staff of all volunteers with a no-kill policy that is upheld.

    Cons

    We need a new updated building or makeover!
