  • 2. LOW PEOPLE POPULATION vs. HIGH PET POPULATION

    by: myburbdog

    Amazing to see VOLUNTEERS helping to keep the overwhelming cost to operate less. The less money wasted on administrative type costs, the more money available directly for the neglected and unwanted animals that overpopulate our area by no fault of their own. I hope that our area's pet population gets the attention it so desperately needs through adoption.

    Pros

    No Kill

    Cons

    Limited public exposure

  • 4. Doing their best!

    Lobo has such a heart for those who have no voice. They have fundraisers and do the best they can with what resources they have.

    Pros

    Too small to offer shelter to all that need it

    Cons

    It's a no-kill facility

  • 5. Way to Go!

    by: klfowler

    It is so good to hear of another no kill shelter. There are just too many animals for shelters like us to take care of - we need people to be educated to neuter their pets - and more room to help those pets in need!

    Pros

    a no kill

    Cons

    never enough room

  • 8. The Search for Holly

    by: pamhawkins

    For our first wedding anniversary My husband and I decided our house was a little too empty. So, we decided to seek out the perfect dog. We went to lcal shelters,looked in the paper,and on Petfinder. A few weeks into our search we found Lobo animal shelter in Mt.Vernon. We drove 2 1/2 hours to Mt. Vernon. We got there late but that didn't seem to be a problem. We still got to see all the dogs and hear the history and personalities of each dog. For the questions that the owner didn't know, she looked them up. She offered to answer any questions we had even once we got home. She also asked us a lot of questions to make sure that Holly would be safe with us.

    Pros

    clean,caring,helpful,knowledgable,

    Cons

    a little hard to find

  • 12. Lobo is Absolutely Fantastic!!

    by: mrthe2th

    We adopted Niko (originally Balto) from Lobo about 2 and a half years ago. Niko has been an absolute joy and we couldn't be more blessed to have him in our lives. Lobo does absolutely great work with taking care of animals that need them. \n\nNiko and his litter mates were being given away at a Flea Market when Lobo rescued them all. In case people don't know, the scum of the earth that participate in dog fighting may very well have taken the whole litter which would have been horrible for them all. Lobo came to the rescue and placed all of them in loving homes. I couldn't imagine life without our Niko and we have Lobo to thank for that. So thank you so much for your work and I hope I can help get the shelter its new home.\n\nNiko says thanks too, he loves his home and is the happiest puppy in the world.\n\nChris

    Pros

    Very Knowledgeable and Caring

  • 13. Starting lobo

    by: LoriJoy

    I was one of the original founders of Lobo. There has been a lot of blood, sweat and tears over the years. I was raised to never turn my back on an animal in need. Lobo has made me reliaze just how many are out there. Not only have i helped almost 100 animals a year find home's i have also made some great friends. It can be a very fun job and very sad as well. It's always great to see someone go to a forever loving home. I hope Lobo can get a new shelter so we can educate the public on spaying and neutering there pets. It would make such a difference in our communtiy. Lets keep the points going!!

    Pros

    Animlas finding loving homes

    Cons

    To see how some of the animals we get have been treated
