    Reader, in this review, you will see the real animal services...\r\n\r\nI know that Lee County animal services is trying to do their best in this city, but they need to step it up...\r\n\r\nFirst thing I'd like to point out is that I have recieved phone calls from some people asking where to go with a stray animal in their yard. Naturaly you would think Animal Services. I am afraid you are mistaken. They have given out other shelters names and numbers telling people to go there first. They claim they have a full house...\r\n\r\nI have personally visited their shelter twice, and I am not impressed. The two times I have visited and from what a friend told me, they have over 20 open dog kennels and as many open cat kennels. How can you have that many open kennels if you don't have room? \r\n\r\nThe only reason for the above is their problems with the animal sicknesses and virus's they can't keep under control. \r\n\r\nTheir cats sleep on newspapers and their dog kennels are a small 4x4 cell. The conditions these animals deal with are unreasonable.\r\n\r\nYou'll also notice that when you walk in there, there are people in blue uniforms, their emblem is a shield and they have a scrolling LED light displaying their statistics (I know of people who have criticized those statistics claiming false numbers...) \r\n\r\nReader, an animal shelter should not look like you are going to pay a ticket or get your drivers license. Remember you are adopting a family member that you will love and they will love you. By adopting at this shelter you are saving its life for this shelter kills for space and the ones they care about they try to push into another shelter that built its name on being a low-kill shelter.
