  • 1. No Kill Shelter

    by: lovepuppy227

    I have visited their website, but never their shelter, but I had a friend who adopted an irish wolfhound from there. She said that a lot of the dogs grow up there, are not exercised enough and are never adopted,because the adoption guidelines are so strict. They wanted to be sure that she would keep the dog inside and that she had a fenced in yard, even though she planned to keep the dog inside. They do well with their photographs and they make their dogs look very cute.


    They are a no kill adoption humane shelter


    I feel they are a little too particular
