  • 1. Friendly Staff, Healthy Animals

    by: opalking

    MOAS is a great shelter. Not only does the staff take excellent care of the animals, but they are willing to help you find the right one to adopt. The animals are well fed and stay medicated and vaccinated. There are also many pets with good tempers that would be suitable for a family with children. It is definitely a great place to adopt a cat or dog.

    Pros

    clean, friendly, plenty of friendly adoption choices

    Cons

    not enough space for more surrendered animals

  • 2. Such a great place

    by: chokingonstatic

    This is a great shelter. I live really close the shelter and have taken many of my cats to be spayed. They did a great job and were very friendly. I try to donate whenever possible to help this shelter out :)

    Pros

    nice friendly staff, helpful, convenient

    Cons

    none that I can think of

  • 3. Great Place to Adopt

    by: scarlettbeach

    MOAS is a great place to go to find a pet that will best suit your lifestyle and preferences. The staff is genuinely interested in finding a home for their animals and helping those who are visiting. I volunteer with them regularly and have enjoyed being around people who love animals like I do. The shelter does its best to ensure that facilities are safe and clean. You can be sure that you will be happy with the service that you receive and with your adopted family member if you choose to find your pet here. It's the best animal shelter there is!

    Pros

    genuine care from the staff, competent and helpful

    Cons

    lack of space and resources

  • 7. Fantastic bright and welcoming shelter!

    by: staci

    MOAS is a fantastic shelter with a very dedicated staff that cares about finding every animal a home. This shelter is newer than many in our area, and has a large capacity. It is a great place to find a new furry friend! They also have excellent policies, and spay and neuter all animals before they are adopted, as well as provide low cost spay/neuter services to the community. This shelter is great about pursuing programs like foster homes and mobile adoption events, to increase adoption rates.

    Pros

    Large capacity, very outgoing staff, great friendly animals, spay neuter clinic on site.

    Cons

    you have to drive a little ways to find this place!

  • 10. MOAS gave me my babies!

    by: lizajayne

    Two of our three dogs hail from MOAS, and my mom and sister have adopted from there. Their staff is friendly for the most part(though there is one lady who is very UNfriendly)We frequent the shelter just to see all the adorable animals, even if we can't take them all home. The shelter is very clean and spacious (especially in comparison to other local shelters) and even though it is located 12 or so miles out of Athens,if you are looking to adopt they have so many animals you're bound to fall in love with one!!

    Pros

    Huge facility,fair prices on adoptions

    Cons

    Out of town
