  • 1. I love them!

    by: ti62421

    I love this place. I've served there as a volunteer, as community service, etc. I have also adopted my AMAZING kitten from there too! They provide good help, wonderful services, and great advice. They are busy as all animal shelters, but they so obviously put forth a HUGE effort to tend to anything a helpful and willing animal lover needs!

    Pros

    Fantastic, everything is great!

    Cons

    They've got a lot going on, as all animal shelters!

  • 2. Great shelter and staff

    by: angelajones

    Although I haven't lived in Lawrence since the 1990s, I adopted two wonderful rabbits from this facility in that decade. Both times, I appreciated the care that the staff extended to its small animals, which often seem overlooked, and their adopters. I also participated in some fundraising events (like the Mutt & Strut) that were both enjoyable and well organized.

    Pros

    friendly staff, community outreach and events, nice adoption packages

    Cons

    can't think of any

  • 5. Amazing people doing difficult work

    by: KElkins

    Shelter Director Midge Grinstead and her staff/volunteers do amazing work for the animals in our area. Her staff are hardworking and very caring. They do a job that I could never do. They ALWAYS put the needs of the animal first. I have adopted 2 dogs and a cat from this shelter and what a great experience it was. Please visit this shelter!

    Pros

    Caring staff and volunteers.

    Cons

    Not enough funding by city and county. (Not the shelters fault.)

  • 6. Awesome shelter

    by: rebpick1artist

    This is a great shelter. I have visited others and this one tops them all. The people truly care about all animals. They work incredibly hard to care for the huge number of animals in the area. They have great programs such as Max's club and the spay/neuter subsidy program. They work hard to educate the public about all sorts of animal issues.

    Pros

    great animal advocates

    Cons

    none that I can see
