  • 4. Great Place

    by: whtstg

    Review from a volunteer. I have volunteered at the shelter going on 8 years now. I see the hard work the staff does dealing with such problems as hoarders, abused animals and problem animals. There are so many success stories and the staff is so dedicated to what they do it's a shame people still view them as "the pound." Because they are a county shelter and not a non-profit shelter they are limited by some things, but they should be commended for the great work they do for the community and mostly for the numerous animals that go through their shelter.

    Pros

    Have lots of animals, great for the community

    Cons

    people see it as the "pound"

  • 5. Doing a good job for the county

    by: kcovey26

    The good folks at WCAS Bonnie L Hays have a diverse population to work with. Their officers have many hurtles to deal with in regards to cultural views on animals. \r\n\r\nThey do a good job for Washington County and are willing to be more progressive then some of the other counties.

    Pros

    Collaberations with other shelters

    Cons

    limited funds to do the hard work

  • 6. Provide important service for community

    by: danielai

    Bonnie Hayes has to deal with a lot of stray animals and a community that can use a lot of education on responsible pet care. Their services are convenient for the community and there is a lot of caring for animals in their facility. I know they are working towards decreasing their need for euthanasia.

    Pros

    Convenient service for community

    Cons

    Higher euthanasia rate than anyone would like
