  • 2. They feel like family

    by: catsheal

    I have been volunteering for the Humane Society of calumet for 2 years now. I'm from New Zealand and they have made me feel like a family there. I have been through sad moments and happy moments with them. I mostly work in the laundry area but I do fostering, bathing and showing cats for them and they are very good with safety issues and always makes time for you. They are always there to help the public.

    Pros

    There a no kill organizesation, quailty of staff is very good

    Cons

    low on staff, not enough parking space,need more space for the dogs

  • 3. The Best Shelter around

    by: CherylA47

    I was over at the humane society just this past Friday, 01/23/09. There are no bad smells in the entire place and the animals are so well taken care of. I have been in other shelters and this one is the absolute best one I have seen. Keep up the good work and may GOD bless every one of you.

    Pros

    The staff keep the place so clean you cant believe it.

    Cons

    unfortunatly they cant help the number of animals they have

  • 4. Best Place For Homeless Animals

    by: crazy46322

    I have worked as a volunteer there for almost 4 years. I have seen many heartbreaking things as well as many happy adoption outcomes. Everybody who works there truly cares about all the animals. When an animal is sick, it is taken to the vet and treated. This is amazing considering it is a no-kill shelter solely dependent on donations. They even care about the small animals, like rabbits and guinea pigs, just as much as cats and dogs. I have seen many employees cry over a sick, abused, or mistreated animal. I've seen them take animals home with them for the weekend because the animals are scared or sick. They believe that there's someone for everyone and that sooner or later, the right person will come along for any particular animal, and they're right! They're always willing to give a difficult animal every chance at rehabilitation including obedience training, foster care, etc. They bring animals from kill shelters when their times are up and try to find them homes. They value their volunteers and treat them with respect and appreciation. This is the best place for a homeless animal to be. This is the best place for a volunteer to be. This is the best place for anybody!

    Pros

    All animals are loved and cared for. Sick animals are treated.

    Cons

    None

  • 6. munster humane society

    by: cathleent3

    What a great place, I have taken my dogs there for obedience and to get chipped, and I have taken part in some of their fund raising. really a great place to get a dog. My only negative feeling was when I wanted to adopt a dog, and felt like I was shuffled around to different shelter workers, and as a result i think the staff should try to be as friendly as they can to the humans. You could spend alot of time in there before anyone asks you if they can help you with a question...

    Pros

    this place is clean and the animals are well taken care of

    Cons

    I think the staff makes it hard to adopt.

  • 8. My babies

    by: Jillianna

    We have gotten every pet from this shelter. I got a cat back in 1986 that I had for 10 years. She was my baby. We got a dog 8 years ago, and just a year ago I adopted another cat. They are healthy and well cared for at the shelter. They encourage a lot of human interaction with the animals to help them adjust. They have a wonderful cat room for the cats to socialize with each other and with humans. The staff is friendly and they work hard to maintain a clean shelter. The volunteers are very devoted. I recommend this shelter for anyone looking for a loving pet to take home.

    Pros

    MANY animals to choose from

    Cons

    MANY animals to choose from!

  • 10. HSCA

    by: enrico1223

    My wife and I have adopted 3 cats from humane society calumet, added to the 3 we already have. \r\n We recently went to addopt a large puppy called rocco, unfortunatly rocco does not get along well with other pets, evan though we were turned down for the addoption in the best interest of all the pets involved, the staff there went out of their way to try to help us get rocco, they were so friendly and helpfull. We wish to thank them all, and we will be back, we always stop in from time to time to see how everybodys doing.

    Pros

    Cons

    overcrowded

    by: sandipetee

  • 18. Great place to work! (for the animals of course)

    by: seximexi84

    I've been working at the HSCA for almost a year now and I love it! A rewarding job with great people who are dedicated to the animals. It doesn't get much better than that. It's unfortunate to see how many animals are left homeless on a daily basis though.

    Pros

    clean facility, friendly staff ;)

    Cons

    wish we could take in every animal!

  • 19. Working with, not against!

    by: Britt1217

    The HSCA brings their animals to the vet hospital I work at for vaccines. Many of the staff that works there also bring their own pets to us. Everyone there works so hard to get pets adopted to GOOD homes. They don't just pick anyone. HSCA is also a no-kill shelter, so right now they have about 300, YES....300 cats up for adoption. We have many new pet parents come to our hospital after adopting their new pet from HSCA and they never have anything bad to say. How can they? They just walked away with a new furry child to care and love!

    Pros

    Many Many pets to choose from.

    Cons

    Many Many pets to choose from.
