  • 1. Bradley's Adoption

    by: BradleyJenkins

    The facility is new and beautiful, but the people who work with the animals don't have enough volunteers to walk/run the dogs (this is what one of the vet techs explained to me) so a lot of the dogs are really hyper - mainly because they are cooped up at least 23 hours of the day in their kennels. My dog was considered "hyper-active" but after I took him home he calmed down a lot - so don't let this discourage you as a prospective adopter if all the dogs seem too hyper. I tried to submit a volunteer application and foster application but the people at the front desk had no idea what to do with either of them. They kind of made me feel like I was a moron, like they had better things to do than submit an application (I'm sure they do but they didn't have to make me feel like that - I'm just trying to help.) Maybe that's why there isn't a lot of free help. I think I got one email about volunteering to upkeep the sorry website, but there was no other follow up because I couldn't make the last minute web design training date. Other than that, I can tell the people who work there really care about the animals and make a nice connection with them. They had a lot of information about the individual personality of the dogs I was looking at, and they were more than helpful to allow me to see a pup in one of the viewing rooms. I just wish they had more volunteer help if needed.


    new facility, clean, organized, informative staff (the ones that actually work with the animals)


    uninformed front desk, not enough volunteers

  • 2. Return of Sammy

    We adopted Sammy 6 years ago. He is like a reincarnation of Sam who we lost 7 months prior to that.


    Very Helpful

    My dog came from this organization and his is a wonderful dog. They were helpful since at the time of his adoption he had a few medical problems. I later found a puppy that I brought to them and unfortunately they explained to me very kindly that if they took the puppy in he was likely to "put down" due to a sezure of multiple dogs that over loaded the facilities. I decided to keep the puppy for another two weeks and put up signs in hopes of finding the owner. Once those two weeks expired and no news from the owner I returned with the puppy to the SPCA where they were more than happy to help find the puppy a good home. The staff was very kind and very knowledgable.


    Kind yet professional


    sometimes their frustration is taken out on the wrong people
