  • 1. Great Place to find a furry friend

    by: stephbell

    I was in search of a cat or cats to add to my new home. So in search of a shelter I did go. I found both of my boys there at the shelter. The staff was both helpful and knowledgeable about the cats they had in their shelter. Most of the cats had been in foster care and had some type of background information like if they get along with other cats, children etc. Mrs. Rita took such good care of me and my boys, always available for questions and so helpful. She may have gotten a bad rap for not wanting to adopt to "military" families, but what you hear is not always true. She adopted to my husband and I and we are military! She is wanting only the best for her animals at the shelter! Give an animal a home and ADOPT!!!

    Pros

    Great Staff,(Anastasia) very helpful

    Cons

    Small shelter for amount of animals taken in

  • 2. Great Place

    by: Qt4jc21

    My brother's dog got pregnant right before he took her to have her fixed. He couldn't get rid of the puppies so he asked me to take them to the pound. Not being able to bear the thought of that, I called the Humane Society. I was greeted with a very friendly owner and told to bring the puppies by for a look that afternoon. She immediately fell in love with them and told me she would take them. The shelter was very clean, the staff was the greatest. I was sad leaving the puppies behind but at the same time, was very sure that they were in the best hands they could be in and that they would find good homes, which they did all by the next day! This is a wonderful shelter!

    Pros

    Sweet and Loving Staff, Very helpful, Wonderful with the animals, The only no kill shelter in the area

    Cons

    none that I am aware of

  • 3. Care of Animals

    by: jessmoore

    I work at the HSWL and we take pride in taking care of all of our Animals. It just seems to me that some People that come in to look at the animals do not care about the care and welfare of the Pets. They touch them and do not listen to the Staff and Volunteers when they are reminded not to handle the Animals. We are trying to protect the Animals and some People don`t seem to care too much about them.

    Pros

    Caring Staff

    Cons

    People not willing to follow Rules

  • 4. A Fantastic Shelter

    by: tcoffey06

    I have adopted two pets from this shelter. The volunteers give an "extreme" amount of their personal time to the care of the pets and the facility and to activities to help the shelter be able to continue. They rescue pets from outside sources and other "kill" shelters. Their concern for the health and care of the animals they rescue is absolutely wonderful. It was the first time I had left a shelter and actually felt good rather than sad.

    Pros

    Personal Care and Concern for Pets

    Cons

    None
