  • 1. Great Shelter!

    by: laurajean1963

    My children and I volunteer here and they are very helpful and we have found homes for many of the animals, but still looking for more homes.

    Pros

    Wonderful shelter and people

    Cons

    Located in rural area; can be hard to get to in winter

  • 2. History with Animal House

    by: Terrytech

    This is a wonderful place, and you can tell by all the volunteers! Many complain about the "customer service" but you have to remember that 90% of the people you see there, are volunteers not paid staff! Treat people (and animals) the way you want to be treated! We have adopted six pets from Animal House over the past several years. Our neighbors took our lead, and have adopted two dogs over the last two years. Animal House treats their adoptees with much love, and respect while they are there. The place is clean, the animals are clean, the grounds are clean, I have seen much much worse, and they operate purely on donations, they are a not for profit shelter.

    Pros

    They're a no-kill shelter, very clean well organized

    Cons

    They have more visitors than they have staff to handle sometimes

  • 5. Country Setting For Pets

    by: DebbieReko

    I have driven by this place and they have a large area of land to work with in the country. It appears to be well laid out and they are careful about having people just walk through. They apparently bring the dogs to you rather than having people walk through the dog area. Their website is excellent and I look at it often to see what animals they have. I hope to volunteer there soon as it looks like an excellent shelter.

    Pros

    Excellent Location

    Cons

    None

    Pros
