  • 1. A nice shelter

    by: me4wishful

    We got our second cat here. The shelter was nice. It had several different living areas then a few different play rooms for the cats to take turns in. I'm not really sure about the dog arrangements because we weren't looking at dogs. The only thing that I didn't really like was that they didn't really have much info on the cats. After I had walked around, I had a list of about 4 possibilities and when we took it up to the desk so that we could actually see them, I asked a few questions about them. They really didn't know about whether they had been tested or vaccinated yet. This was just kind of weird because at other shelters that I have been to, they tested and vaccinated the cats before they were even let into the general population areas. And the cats that I was questioning were already in cages next to the other cats. But over all, I was pretty impressed with the shelter. They have a very thorough questionaire that they have you fill out and they contact your landlord to make sure you are allowed to have pets.


    Lots of separate areas, thorough questionaire


    amount of info on animals
