  • 3. They try hard

    by: lolasmom116

    I had the good fortune of adopting my 2 small dogs fromt this shelter in Jan '08. They both had kennel cough which is very common in shelters. I got a free office visit at a very good participating vet.\r\nI love my 2 boys. I just lost a cat today to renal failure and when I am ready I will probably go back to adopt an adult cat. I will never, ever buy a dog/cat/bird from a pet store-ever. Too many pets in shelters have to be euthanized every day...Please, adopt, don't buy.\r\n

    Pros

    Caring staff

    Cons

    Not a No-Kill shelter ----YET!

  • 4. Caring place

    by: Ishbish

    When I dropped off some donations, I was surprised at how caring and informed the workers were. Now I routinely drop stuff by without trepidation.

    Pros

    Caring staff in the back

    Cons

    Staff up front sometimes hard to find

  • 5. Work hard to place animals

    by: aussiejodi

    Staten Island staff are always working hard to place their animals into no-kill rescues. They are willing to go the extra mile. We have taken many dogs from them and they will have their staff or volunteers drive them to Long Island for us. Our most recent rescues from Staten Island have been Richie, a 15 year old Maltese (he got adopted...YAY!) and Skippy, an injured Pomeranian.

    Pros

    Work hard to place animals

    Cons

    Not no-kill
