  • 1. We need a makeover!!!

    by: nbmb16

    I have volunteered her many times and always enjoyed the time I spent with the animals. They are all well-fed, and you can easily tell that the staff loves the animals. The biggest issue is that there is there is NOT enough room! I know this is a regular problem for animal shelters, but here it's really an issue. There are so many needy animals in Madison County, and we could save SO many more if we just had a place to put them! This shelter could REALLY use a makeover!!

    Pros

    friendly staff, outdoor areas for animals, etc

    Cons

    not enough space!!

  • 4. OUR SHELTER

    by: ncdemontigny

    WE ARE A VERY SMALL PER CAPITA COUNTY WITH VERY LITTLE FUNDS AND REALLY NEED A NEW SHELTER. MOST PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTY L0VE THEIR PETS AS DO I. WHEN MY LAST PUPPY WAS TAKEN FROM MY HOME, THE SHELTER AND SHERRIFFS DEPT. WENT OUT OF THEIR WAY TO HELP ME FIND HER. I DONATE MY NEWS PAPERS AND OLD SHEETS AND BLANKETS AS MUCH AS I CAN. I TRY TO TAKE A LARGE BAG OF DOG FOOD WHEN I HAVE A DROP OFF THAT IS VERY PLEASANTLY ACCEPTED BY THE WONDERFUL PEOPLE AT THE SHELTER. I AM PROUD TO KNOW THAT THE PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTY AND OUR SHELTER REALLY DO BELIEVE IN OUR PETS.

    Pros

    CARING STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS

    Cons

    WE NEED A BETTER SHELTER

  • 6. Its a great place.

    by: KojiTaBelarus

    The people that work there are hard working people and try their best to help anyone and everyone that comes in wanting to get a pet from a shelter. They make sure that you get the type of pet that works well in the situtaion that you are in. I am glad that there are still great people that are working in the shelter for this long. I just hope that they do get this makeover since they really do need it the most.

    Pros

    people are great there and they help you in an instant.

    Cons

  • 7. Helping the Madison County Animal Shelter

    by: schramm101

    A grand make-over would be great! We need it and we want it to happen here in Madison County, NC - for us. \r\n\r\nWe were out to the shelter on two different occasions, so we meet most of the staff - The staff was so nice and helpful. \r\n\r\nThis is a small shelter in a great county. I don't want my rating of the shelter to be mis-read, the problem is, the facility is too small and room is limited. It is hard to keep an older facility that is too small clean and organized. This place really needs some work done to it. Funding big renovation projects can be overwhelming for small counties, so lets do all we can as the community around this facility to assist them in their on going efforts to help local animals. \r\n\r\nSo for now all who read this should look at what they can do now. Send or take a donation to the shelter (look on their website for needed items), be a volunteer, or maybe adopt a new friend.\r\n

    Pros

    The wonderful staff

    Cons

    The facility needs some help.
