  • 1. $300 REWARD

    by: slomanto

    To the person who is caring for Oscar, thank you. However, we miss him terribly. We’ve lost a human family member recently, and losing Oscar too, has made our grief unbearable. Please, return him to his family. It is the right thing to do and we would be so grateful. A la persona que está cuidando a Oscar, gracias. Sin embargo, lo extraño terriblemente.

  • 5. VOLUNTEER

    by: Geno

    The shelter in Dos Palos has two wonderful. constant Saturday volunteers named Elizabeth and Janice. These two are a perfect pair. They both love animals, yet each has a favorite. You will find Janice caring for the cats and Elizabeth caring for the dogs. They both find volunteering to be a fulfilling and rewarding experience. The unconditional affection they get from the animals is all the reward they need...and that's why they keep coming back every Saturday. Rick Warren said, "...the best way to spell love is T-I-M-E." If you love animals, give them some of your time; volunteer at the shelter. If you come on a Saturday, say hello to Elizabeth, Janice, and the animals. They will be glad to see you!

    Pros

    loving caring volunteers

    Cons

    none

  • 6. Shelter continually improving

    by: tonycat

    Like most shelters, more volunteers would make this a better place for the animals. There's a need for continued improved conditions as well, though they are doing well with what they have. Can you help with your time or money?

    Pros

    Dedicated staff.

    Cons

    Needs more volunteers.

GRAVEY MAY BE GONE BUT HE WILL ALWAYS BE IN OUR HEARTS FOREVER. RUN GRAVEY RUN!

  • 10. Cindys Heart Of Gold

    by: cindysdad

    My daughter Cindy as put her whole being into this shelther. Cindy loves and cares for every animal that enters her doors. She makes sure they are taken care of to the upmost service. I sometimes think she is crazy I do not know were she gets it from she always is being a mother to some kind of animal it really does not matter what type it is but she care for it and then she places it were it needs to go. I am her dad but I know she has found her calling. Think God for the animals of Dos Palos they are safe as long as she is aboard.

  • 11. Just a nice place to visit

    by: Cindysmom

    Cindy work days and nights to ensure the health and happiness of all the animals cared for at the Dos Palos Animal Shelther. Cindy takes them home to care for them if she thinks it would better suit the animal. In fact she had 27 kittens last spring because she was waiting for the new shelther to be finished. All the kittens found new homes. Now she is careing for puppies who were born at the shelther just to give them a great start in life. Cindy needs more room she has so many ideas to improve the shelther she needs are help to win this makeover. If anyone was ever worth this she is the one. So everyone write your reveiws and go out and talk to her she is always willing to give anyone a helping hand and all her time when it comes to a animal.

  • 12. Great Place

    by: cassiejoe

    My Mom Cindy has devoted her time and love for the animals of Dos Palos and also Merced County animals that she rescues everyday. As a child I new I would never want any animals because we had so many growing up but as a adult now i can not image not having the animals around. My Mom Cindy has shown us just how important it is to have the animals around. My Mom loves every thing alive she cherish and makes it come to life even if you think their is no hope she saves lives every day. My mom goes without sleep to make sure kittens are fed and puppies are a never ending story she make sure they have wonderful homes to go too. Please help her win this makeover she wants so much more for the city of Dos Palos and all its animals. Please HELP

  • 15. Helpig out

    by: ztT4MP52302583

    I think that this is a great program to help our local animal shelter out. I think that if everyone contributes more and more everyday, we'll have a more claen, safe enviorment for not only the animals but the visitors, advisers and staff as well. Even tgough Dos Palos is a small town, we could do it!

    Pros

    Staff, advisers, adopters

    Cons

    the ones who chose to not help when able to!!!
