  • 1. not much more than no-kill

    by: photobunnie

    Yes they are no-kill, but they have too many animals to treat their shelter animals properly. Their hours are short and many dogs don't get walked at all. Their volunteer hours are extremely short as well, so the opportunity for more walks isn't there. Plus they do not provide any information on their animals besides their names and ages. Behavioral background or past environment is vital information for new owners, and isn't provided ( I don't think they even know it). In a perfect world they would provide training to their animals in order to increase their rate and permanence of adoptions.

    Pros

    No-Kill shelter

    Cons

    Everything else

  • 2. Two thumbs way way up

    by: bakacoconut

    After being disappointed with a humane society's lack of apparent care and knowledge of the animals they house, we went to K-9 Bed & Biscuit (now known as Denkai Adoption Center) to meet a dog we had an appointment with that afternoon. We arrived an hour or two early and spent that time chatting with one of the staff about past pets and the animals there. He took the time to show us around and knew specifically all the dogs and cats' personalities and went back to check up on them/spend time with them while we were waiting. We were thoroughly impressed with their knowledge and concern about letting one of the dogs go home with us. Thank you, Denkai Adoption Center, for the greatest addition to our family that we could've ever imagined.

    Pros

    Time is actually spent getting to know the animals and a lot of care goes into them and their surroundings

    Cons

    They're in desperate need of funding so they can continue upgrading the place

  • 3. Cruelty

    by: kellymichels

    Rachel took down my personal info and my C/C for the amount of $145- $125 for the Akita/Shepard mix and $20 donation- yesterday after physically checking to see if the pup was available and to see if it was a male. I told her I wanted to pay in full and she said no problem- hence having all the appropriate info. Half way to Greeley- Rachel calls me and said that the pup was depressed. I said no problem that we were still coming up to get the pup and that we would take it to our vet in Colorado Springs. Afew minutes later I called to get the vets number (970-686-5725. Stacey the secretary said that the pup just arrived and that the Vet would talk to me. He said that the dog had a parasite/blocked intestine and said it was in bad shape and that " You don't want this dog". I said that I would have it taken care of asap at my vet and that we had already scheduled an appt. As we get closer to where the pup is things get a little strange. Rachel said that she didn't know the pup was sick because she had been off for the last three days. When I reminded her that she was at her job taken my C/C she got defensive and I asked why she lied? Did she sell the pup to someone else. She then screamed into the phone that I couldn't have the dog and that she didn't run my C/C- and hung up. When my daughter called her in tears explaining how important this pup was to our family and that we'd driven for nearly 3 hours to pick it up she screamed at my daughter telling her she could not have the pup and that the surgery would costs us $3,000. When we told her we wanted to see the pup at the vet she said "you're still not getting the dog". When we got to the vet we were told that the dog was already in surgery- unavailable to see. My Vet thought that not allowing us to get a second opinion was odd. My concerns are as followed. Rachel was covering up the neglected pup (she physically saw him yesterday-while she put me on hold) or it's been sold to someone else- or the vet was looking for over-priced surgery procedure. We know something is really wrong here- the vet and Rachel were having conversations- I know this because Stacey the secretary mentioned it to me. It's been a truly discusting experience. I LEGALLY had the right to the pup via verbal contract- hence taking my c/c and personal info as well as excepting our donation. only as we got closer to the pup things because strange and volatile. I need to have someone find out the truth. Kelly Michels 719-232-0502 I will continue to find out what really went on.

  • 7. Not what I thought

    by: KipperSnack1

    I had heard not many good things about this place other than that they are a no-kill shelter. I visited recently and found a staff and group of volunteers that have nothing but love for their wards. Some dogs have been here for several years and they are cared about as much as the cute ones that will be adopted in a heart beat. I left there wanting a cat which I haven't wanted in years. The cats live together in a happy environment. I think that the facilities need an upgrade and that the older residents need more enrichment, but that is not an easy task on the budget that I'm sure they must have to abide by.

    Pros

    Love their animals

    Cons

    Not enough enrichment for long term residents

  • 8. An oasis for the less fortunate

    by: katdan04

    I am a volunteer there. I have gotten to know all of the animals and I've seen many adopted. I think they could use a makeover to make the place a more positive environment for potential adopters. As it is, it is too loud and the animals are very excited and nervous. When I take them outside for a walk, they calm down immediately. If more adopters could see the dogs in their best light (outside and calm), more would be adopted. \r\n\r\nThey could use warm places for the dogs to sleep and insulated doghouses for the dogs that stay outside.\r\n\r\nThye are wonderful loving people that know each animal and care deeply, but funding is tough. Because they are a more rural shelter, they don't get as many visits from adpoters as the city shelters.\r\n\r\nThe very few of the animals are un-adoptable. Most are very adoptable for the right homes and many need a little rehab. I know these animals and I care about each of them. Nothing would make me happier then to see them go home.

    Pros

    They are a No-Kill Shelter

    Cons

    There is no calm place for adopters to meet animals
