  • 1. The Place to Go For A Pet

    by: superslr

    We adopted our beloved Tasha when she was four months old nearly 12 years ago. She had been placed once but was returned due to her grouchy attitude. They didn't give up on her and neither did we. They never give up and have given some animals a safe and loving place for several years. We are a vey small county so the odds of beating the larger shelters is slim but they sure need a new home,

    Pros

    A loving dedicated staff

    Cons

    Not enough room

  • 2. Proud of our humane society

    by: brackett66

    Every time I have had any contact with the humans at the shelter they have been wonderful. I have had the chance to meet many of the dogs and cats that have been adopted out from the shelter. They have been well cared for before their adoption. The shelter runs on volenteers and they do hard work that helps many animals that would not have a chance without them.

    Pros

    The hard work of the staff shows in the quality of the animals

    Cons

    The building is just too small for the needs of our county

  • 3. People that care

    keep up the good work

    Pros

    A shelter that cares

    Cons

    none

  • 4. More peopleshould help

    by: deedeekramer

    I think there should be different catagories for shelters as we live in a samll town and our shelter is a small shelter that desperately needs revamping. A shelter in a larger city is going to get more votes. That is not fair to the smaller in need shelters across the country. We do everything we can in this area to help this shelter, dog baths, donations, but not many people live in our town. Further to that, the shelter in Genoa just shut down, so now we are getting animals from other areas. Our cat and dog are great and both animals are rescues.

    Pros

    One of the best animal shelters I've seen, people the best

    Cons

    Too small to accept any more animals

  • 5. Great Place I Hear!

    by: SpayAndNeuter

    My friend Jonna volunteers here and she really likes this place, from what she tells me its a great place and they help alot of animals around that area! From the pictures I have seen it looks like they really need this makeover, and it would help the high volume of animals they take in. Keep up the good work HSOC!!!

  • 6. Great Shelter

    by: Susiek

    I have been volunteering at the Humane Society of Ottawa County, off and on for numerous yrs. I really enjoy doing it, not only because it is a great way to help unfortunate animals, but also everyone there is great to work with. I haven't met one person there that isn't totally into the animals and making sure they are cared for. The animals show in many ways that they are cared for and treated nicely. I go in one wk and they are scared because they have just arrived, but the very next wk when I go in, they act as if they have been there forever and are quite comfortable with everyone. They definitely deserve to have help with the shelter. \n\nMaggie Kirkendall

    Pros

    The animals are taken care of and are top priority.

    Cons

    They don't have much space to work with.

  • 7. A wonderful and hard working shelter

    by: Chow2us

    My husband and I have donated both dog food and cat food to this shelter. The staff of volunteers work very hard at fund raisers. The area this shelter is situated in is mostly rural but is a summer vacation spot for many families. The staff holds several fund raisers (walks, pet photo calendar, participates in several craft show events, etc. I "helped" my 18 year old granddaughter adopt a kitten last summer at one of these events. The animals are well cared for and the dogs are walked by volunteers when weather permits. This shelter is a no-kill shelter and really deserves this makeover. I hope they can attain their goal of building a new and larger shelter or renovating the one they are currently residing in. We are thinking of adopting a dog in the future and will definitely continue our support.

    Pros

    Homelike atmosphere

    Cons

    Needs to be larger

  • 8. Humain Society Review

    by: thelostprophetx0

    The Human Society is pretty well kept, except for the fact that there are too many animals in the same cage. There should be a few more cages so the animals can be more spread out and have more room. I recieved a cat from there 4 years ago and nothing was wrong with him and he turned out to be a great cat, so they take good care of their animals. Overall, this is a good place. They are willing to take any animals in and keep them until they someone comes in to take them home.

    Pros

    They have a variety of animals there to choose from and take home.

    Cons

    There are too many animals in the same cage.

  • 11. A place to call temporary home!

    by: ayerszoo

    The Humane Society of Ottawa County is small but mighty. The staff does everything possible to make sure the animals taken in are happy and enjoy their temporary home. An outdated shelter puts so many limitations on the day to day activity, so it would be awesome to see a new facility for animals who deserve it!

    Pros

    Every animal feels safe and warm

    Cons

    Not nearly enough space to take in all of the animals that need to find temporary shelter

  • 12. Great Shelter!

    by: cap10mark

    I have visited this shelter many times just to see the animals. I enjoy visiting, would love to volunteer, buy am afraid of getting too attached.\n Very clean and friendly environment.

    Pros

    Animals are well taken care of

    Cons

    Too small, as we all know.

  • 13. Where the animals are loved until they get the furever home!

    by: lisaluebcke1

    The animals are very well taken care of at this shelter. They all seem to get good homes when adopted out. They are spoiled by everyone that comes in to visit them. The one thing that matters is that everyone there are animal lovers and care very much for them.

    Pros

    They do all the can for each animal that comes in.

    Cons

    They need a bigger and better shelter so they can house the animals comfortable.

  • 18. Excellent Shelter for Loving Pets

    by: PawPrintPetSupply

    I have adopted all of my animals from The Humane Society of Ottawa County. They were very well taken care of and extremely happy. The hardest part of the shelter is trying to pick the best pet to take home! The volunteers really love taking care of the pets and really go out of their way to socialize all of the animals. All animals should get a chance to live and these pets get to because it's a no kill shelter. No matter how full the occupancy, no animals are turned away. That means a lot to me.

    Pros

    No kill shelter so all animals are given a chance.

    Cons

    Very small shelter, needs to be bigger

    by: dmtbartley
