    by: nee617

    I love this place. The staff is amazing and the animals are wonderful. They take time to work with animals and make sure their alright. All the animals have enough space to be themselves. They allow people to walk the dogs and everything. My mother just got a new puppy from them, Sadie and we couldn't have been happier with how they treated her while she was there.

    Pros

    No matter how many animals they take in, they always take care of them all.

    Cons

    The building is a little small.

    by: forsythia69

    I love going to the shelter to visit the animals. The staff is very friendly to people and the animals. I have adopted two of my dogs and both of my cats from this shelter.

    Pros

    special events, friendly staff

    Cons

    small

  • 3. Great boarding facility too

    by: Mantycat

    This facility has a wonderful boarding area separate from the adoption area. When I took Boo Boo in to board for a week they had a comforter on the sleeping platform and some soft toys for her as well. It looked like she had her own little comfy bed in her own room. The staff are very good with the animals\nfor boarding as well as the adoptable critters. Love this place!!!!

    Pros

    great staff, great boarding, very clean

    Cons

    needs better out door runs for adoptable dogs

  • 4. Friendly staff

    by: Val327

    I took my dog there for their yearly fundraiser, "Walk for Kindness." It's a fundraiser where you get pledges from friends and family and then walk your dog so many miles. Well, my dog started a fight with another dog. he got out of his harness and jumped on this other dog. I was so embarassed. The staff was very understanding and helpful. They gave me that yellow powder you use to stop my dogs toe from bleeding. Needless to say I didn't end up taking him on the walk, but they were very nice about the whole ordeal.

    Pros

    friendly and helpful staff

    Cons

    none I can think of

  • 5. Compassionate and Experienced Staff

    by: dellsm15

    I have adopted one dog and two ferrets from Lakeshore Humane Society in the past. I have always had good experiences with the staff and their willingness to place animals.

    Pros

    Always willing to help visitors with adoptions and petshop purchases.

    Cons

    Understaffed

  • 6. I love this place!

    by: Kellyas93

    I absolutely love this place! I love going there, but the thing is they need no kennels and badly. They only have so few so they can't house many animals around the area. Overall, they have great service, they take care of the animals, and they're pretty much just great! 5 stars! ★★★★★

    Pros

    Very helpful there.

    Cons

    None!
