  • 1. Fabulous shelter

    by: Briscoe

    It's a dirty job, but somebody's gotta work and volunteer at the animal shelters! And these people do, they really want to help these pets and do what it takes.

    Pros

    Great people trying to help animals here!

    Cons

    none!

  • 2. Pretty good kind'a place!

    by: ecraven

    Overall, a good shelter that could really use some help (financially and through volunteers).

    Pros

    the animals seem to be well care for, and they have plenty of space for the volunteers to walk and play with the animals

    Cons

    the staff isn't always the friendliest, they can be a little "short" with customers and volunteers

  • 6. Nice Shelter and Fun to Volunteer at

    by: SmellyEllieBelly

    I've volunteered some at this shelter. They have a lot of land behind the shelter to run the dogs and play with them. The staff really cares about their animals and since they're in a college town, they try and encourage students to come and volunteer when they can. Their adoption fees are very reasonable but I can't remember if it comes with spaying/neutering or not. The size of the shelter is kind of small for the size of the town, but I know most shelters are always trying to find more funding and donations. That's why they're trying to get a makeover from zootoo.com. Overall, I like coming to this shelter. I haven't had the opportunity to adopt yet because I feel like I would be betraying my dog back home who I plan on bringing up soon, haha, but if I didn't have such a diva dog, I would love to adopt from this shelter.

    Pros

    Great place to volunteer. Staff cares about the animals. No-kill shelter.

    Cons

    Out of the way. People may not know where it's at. A little small for the size of Stillwater.

  • 7. Great shelter.

    by: Sketchyboy

    It's been awhile since I've been to this shelter (back in my college days). Luckily, I was able to help save 4 dogs back them. Unfortunately, they have all since passed.

    Pros

    clean, helpful

    Cons

    none

  • 8. Lots of volunteers?

    by: klfowler

    Looking at your zootoo numbers, I see you have a huge volunteer staff. We have about 50 volunteers and a very small building that can only house 25 dogs at max. We envy your buildings and your volunteer staff!!!

    Pros

    many volunteers to help?

    Cons

    ?

  • 9. I appreciate the Humane Society of Stillwater and all they do. They are in my will and when I win the lottery big they will too!

    by: mbandy17

    Super place and people--I hope we get them in the win on this contest!

    Pros

    I love the fact they have Whiskers Place

    Cons

    Need updated buildings and more room.

  • 10. So glad we have the Humane Society

    by: Lifsubeach

    I volunteered at the Humane Society a few years ago. I had so much fun walking dogs and playing with cats. My kids came and joined me every Sunday to help out with these animals. It was a joy.\r\n\r\nBut, it was also sad that so many animals were homeless. I was so glad to hear that Stillwater is a no kill shelter. It's really difficult though because everyone wants a puppy and almost all these guys are full grown.\r\n\r\nI live in the country and have so many of my own animals now that I don't have time to volunteer. But,the Stillwater Humane Society is great and trying to help the animals all that they can. I have to applaud them for their efforts. If you are not an animal lover you will never understand how important the Stillwater Humane Society is to our community. They need all the help they can get to help keep these animals alive.

    Pros

    No kill shelter

    Cons

    Too many animals

  • 11. Great place!

    by: ejanay

    The Human Society of Stillwater is a great shelter in the area! It is super clean! The animals are clearly well taken care of, clean, comfortable, and fed. There is plenty of room for the dogs to run and be walked. The cat room was a little crowded, but there were many people there at the time.

    Cat room was crowded

    Need money to make cosmetic changes

  • 21. Great thing for Stillwater!

    by: rjonesyyy

    The Humane Society of Stillwater works hard for the animals of Stillwater to keep them safe until a forever home comes looking for them. They take the animals from Animal Welfare that are set to be euthanized and keep them until they are adopted, which in some cases takes years. They keep everyone healthy and adoptable. The staff is great and they want the best for the animals.

    Pros

    works hard for the homeless animals of stillwater

    Cons

    little money

  • 22. What a deserving place!

  • 26. Help Stillwater Humane Society

    by: sherry85

    I just went there for the first time today and was really happy to see the healthy animals there. It's sad though that they don't have a home and all they want is a little bit of affection. I would like to ask more people to go help out there as the animals are lonely and need the love!

    Pros

    Healthy, safe shelter

    Cons

    ..

  • 27. Great place to get a pet for life

    by: NemoTobyMom

    I found two pets for life. They are smart, easy to train and so loving. I will never get a pet from anyone else. If you are looking for a new pet to be a part of the family, this shelter is great.

    Pros

    All thier pets were loving

    Cons

    None

  • 28. Great place that cares for animals in need

    by: Briscoe

    Serves the City of Stillwater so well. Without this shelter, the city pound (a separate entity) would have to put many more animals to sleep. Way to go!

    Pros

    Caring people

    Cons

    Like all animal shelters, doesn't have enough funds to do what they'd like.

  • 29. great Place

  • 30. Stillwater Humane Society

    by: Twobits

    This is a college town, so the Humane Society has to deal with lots of critters that the students leave at semester end. They do a great job advertising the available critters.

    Pros

    Nice facility

    Cons

    None

  • 31. Great Shelter

    by: audiotramp

    This shelter does is best with a low budget. There is a rural community that is not always very animal friendly, but the employees do a great job trying to place animals in permanent homes or other rescue organizations.

    Pros

    Dedicated employees and volunteers

    Cons

    very low budget

  • 32. Save & love there animals

    by: lovs2ride

    The people of Stillwater truely go above and beyond to save every animal they can. They ONLY place them in responsible homes, not just any home that thinks they need a dog or cat. They think of these animals as if they were there own, not just shelter animals. They are ALWAYS spay or neutered. I think that is very important.

    Pros

    The Stillwater Shelter go above and beyond to save lives and place the animals in Very good homes.

    Cons

    the facilities are lacking.

  • 33. Makeover please!

    by: Bays

    I love going to the Humane Society to walk the dogs. They are so excited to see you and I have to admit I have a few favorites that I always walk first. I like to teach them how to "sit" and "down" and hopefully makes them more adoptable. The buildings are old, some of the keenels need replacing, and a makeover would really make a difference!!

    Pros

    It's a no kill shelter

    Cons

    Some of the dogs have been here over a year, so sad

  • 34. Keep it up

    by: jessicasl

    Although it's terrible to think that anyone would not want a companion it does happen. The Humane Society of Stillwater is a great place while these pets await new homes. Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    great place

    Cons

    animals that need homes

  • 35. Great Place to Volunteer

    by: jill8788

    I love to volunteer at this shelter. It's great because you have the option of playing with the dogs at the property where there is plenty of room for them to run around or you can check them out and go to the local park. The dogs are friendly and easy to handle.

    Pros

    The animals all seem to be very helthy and happy!

    Cons

    The buildings can be a little smelly

  • 36. great place!

  • 37. I work there and it is great!

    by: ashtony

  • 40. poop pusher

    by: 2trinity2

    This place is as great place. I never thought about working there. I don't know why. ? But I do now and have a for a while. I enjoy getting there and see which ones are more excited to go outside than the others. I like working with my co-worker, it makes the cleaning go faster and allows more time with the dogs. We love putting a bunch of them in the big fence and watching them run around and play together. The funniest thing is to try to go out there and bring them back in, they're happy to see you, but they are not ready to go yet! :)

    Pros

    The pros are walking in there, almost every morning, and seeing how happy there are to see me. Also, knowing that i make them happy by cleaning their kennels and letting them play outside! :)

    Cons

    The cons of working there is to walk and see the dogs that have been than for at least a year or more. It's very sad. :(

  • 41. Clean, Friendly, Loving Environment

    by: babywooly17

    I love the Humane Society of Stillwater. I don't need community service and I enjoy going there just for fun. I love to get the dogs out and let them run in the pens there. There is not a lot to do in Stillwater so to have fun and be helping out the community is a rare find.

    Pros

    Organized, Fun, Clean

    Cons

    Old Building
