  • 1. AWFUL PEOPLE WHO SHOULDN'T CARE FOR ANIMALS!!!!!!

    by: swanny7213

    My fiance had recently called wanting to get some information about a dog at this facility. We are from out of town so we wanted to find out as much as we can before we made the trip to possibly adopt. He started out by asking "Is the dog good with cats." Some lady with a southern accent response was, "I don't know. I can't put a cat in there with him to find out, can I?" He hung up in complete shock. I then called and stated I was calling because we had recently gotten a snotty answer and she blew up on me and said she can't put a cat in with a dog and there was nothing she could do. I had told her I wanted to speak to a supervisor and she screamed into the phone "you are speaking to her!!!!!!!!" She eventually hung up. I am SO DISGUSTED with the fact that these poor animals are being "taken care of" by people like this. She obviously doesn't care about the animals or she wouldn't have been so rude to people who want to give a dog a nice home. From what I hear this is not a very nice or honest place and I seriously hope these animals somehow come out on top. Contented Critters you by far sicken me. How much more pathetic can you be?

    Pros

    NONE

    Cons

    HAVEN'T SEEN THE FACILITY BUT A PHONE CALL WAS ENOUGH TO SHOW THIS PLACE IS AWFUL AND THESE ANIMALS DESERVE BETTER!

  • 2. Trying to help the animals

    by: lambrhondal

    It sounds like you a like us, a small rural area, doing what you can with the minute resources. I commend you for your efforts and encourage you to keep on keeping on. After all, it may be one animal at a time but it's all worth it.

    Pros

    Saving animals

    Cons

    NA

  • 3. loving pets and care

    by: wildwindbster

    they take very good care of their animals. i have found all the animals to be very loving. they have done a great job of caring for the animals until the animals can go to a good home. the animals there get such good care that no matter how horrible their situations were the animals are very well treated and in very good care. i adopted a dog from there and he was very much a big part of my life, until he passed away. i recomend any one who wants a well taken care of animal to go there. i would just like to see it made bigger to help more animals. i would like to see the dogs and cats have bigger areas to play.

    Pros

    its close to home

    Cons

    it needs to be bigger

  • 4. Contented Critters services wide rural area with little resources.

    by: arachnid

    Contented Critters, a non-kill shelter, services a wide, very rural area, takes-in all animals (including farm animals) and does outreach work (including SNAP) all over the community. Located at a private residence, run by volunteers that also make house calls, depending mainly on private donations and the proceeds from a not-for profit thrift store Contented Critters has some cleanliness issues and clutter.

    Pros

    takes all animals/no ethanizing/wide service area

    Cons

    messy
