  • 1. Dessin is great!

    by: Tucker041106

    We got Tucker from the Dessin Animal Shelter back on April 11th, 2006. The staff of the shelter was very friendly and knowledgeable about the animals there. Ever since then, I have been a voulenteer there so I can help them help the animals!


    Very caring staff and professional



  • 2. Dessin is the Best

    by: mnelson27

    As an animal lover, I have been in an out of many animal shelters. Dessin is probably the best one that I have been in. Their staff is friendly and knows a great deal about each and every animal that is brought to them. Even though they only have a small building, it is kept very clean and sanitary. I started volunteering for Dessin about two years ago and plan to continue. They are a great bunch of people and animals to work with!


    Supportive staff who care about the animals


    Small and very old building - need more room

  • 3. Dessin cares

    by: angelmutt

    I've spent a lifetime working in the sheltering and rescue of animals, and Dessin is the best I've worked with. They care about the animals, are very careful about placement, all animals are temperament tested, spayed/neutered and microchipped before leaving for their forever homes. There is no breed prejudice. Each animal is evaluated on its own merits. And Dessin is dedicated to their low cost spay/neuter voucher program.\n\nThe work that they accomplish in a very cramped and clearly outdated shelter is a tribute to the dedication of the staff.


    Major focus is on the care and wellbeing of the aimals.


    Very old, inadequate building
