  • 1. Best place to drop off a loved kitty...

    by: heatherface518

    I had to drop off a loved kitty at the shelter (very sad sob story). I went to two different shelters before this one- and they were the best. They even have a room for the kitties to play in! They also have a waiting period for people wanting to get a pet-- so not just anyone can adobt the animal you miss and love

    Pros

    Very nice people, great cat play room, staff obviously loves animals

    Cons

    still not a no-kill

  • 3. Excellent Shelter

    by: Karebear01

    We recently adopted our Black Lab from the Marshall County Animal Shelter! We had looked a few times but could never pick just the "right one" for our family. One day we stopped in and saw many beautiful dogs but one stood out. She wasn't up for adoption yet, but we filled out an application and checked on her everyday! When we finally were able to pick her up we were so excited and she was worth the wait! Juno is very loveable and wonderful with our 2 little girls! She loves to be hugged and get attention!! So please consider adopting from this shelter. Their staff is made up of a great group of people who were so hopeful each time we were there. They really care about the animals!! It is very clean and the dogs are walked and taken outside. The cats have lots of room to play indoors. A+

    Pros

    Very Clean! Staff is Very Helpful!!

    Cons

  • 4. Great Animal Shelter

    by: LarisaNiehaus

    I used to volunteer at this animal shelter when I was in Jr. High. It was a really great shelter then and still is. I have been in other shelters that only house a few animals. Marshall County Animal Shelter does its best to accommodate as many pets as it can. The staff truly cares about the animals and give them love, not just food, water and shelter. It is most definitely the best shelter in the area.

    Pros

    Great staff, good comunity support

    Cons

    None

  • 6. Way of Life

    by: Anita54

    I have dealt with this shelter for thirty years. The staff doesn't take care of animals to earn a living, they take care of animals as a way of living. They are never "off duty", always on the lookout for neglect and/or abuse, or just offering advice.\r\n We are a farming community, and the Marshall Co Animal Shelter has always managed to stretch their budget to cover even farm animals when it finds them in need of help and protection. \r\n They have developed a good relationship with local news outlets, so when situations occur that require special attention, they are able to get the word out.\r\n I can't say enough about our hard-working folks at The Marshall County Animal Shelter.

    Pros

    Concern, Competence and Dedication.

    Cons

    Not enough money.

  • 8. Wonderful place

    by: thetempest20

    I adopted a wonderful boxer from this shelter a year ago. The staff and volunteers were very kind helping me to adopt her. The facility was very clean and well maintained (although the animals of course would rather be in a loving home!) Willa is now a wonderful addition to our family. Thank you!

    Pros

    nice people, clean facility

    Cons

    none

  • 9. My favorite hometown shelter

    by: boxermomvi

    I have been a part of this shelter family all my life as my mother is part of the volunteer organization that backs the shelter. Nearly all of our wonderful family pets have come from this shelter. These are people who really care about the pets and giving them the best permanent home possible. They also know their patrons and keep tabs on the shelter alumni. The fantastic new cat room is a great place to interact with the next feline member of your family and gives the cats a better quality of life, rather than being stuck in cages all the time. I hope they get the opportunity to do a similar project for the dogs soon.

    Pros

    Caring staff who actually care about the animals

    Cons

    I don't live close enough to help more

    I'm not joking when I say that this is literally the best shelter I have ever been to. Not only because I volunteer there, but because of the care of the animals and the enviornment. This is a great shelter, and they deserve to win the million dollar makeover.

    Pros

    great staff, clean, animals well taken care of

    Cons

    none

  • 13. This is a great animal shelter!

    by: thepoo91

    This is a really good animal shelter. I go there every once in a while to look at the animals. My sister works there, and my cousin volunteers there. They do their best to keep the animals safe and healthy. It is very clean and there is wonderful service. I would higly recommend getting a pet from the Marshall County Animal Shelter!

    Pros

    always clean, great service

    Cons

    sometimes not enough room, but the workers find solutions

  • 14. Best Shelter AroundI m

    by: lauren987

    I may be a little biased considering I am a part of the shelter staff, however, I can say that out of all of the shelters in the area, Marshall County is the best. It is by far the cleanest, and the staff is always willing to help you find what you are looking for. All of the animals are well taken care of and loved. Also, the application process ensures that all animals that are adopted go to a good home.

    Pros

    Very clean, Animals are well cared for

    Cons

    None

  • 16. Fantastic

    by: PamL

    When you walk into this shelter, it doesn't smell. It's clean, warm and dry. You are able to interact with the animal you're interested in so that you can make an informed choice.\r\n\r\nThe folks at Marshall Co. Animal Shelter are so kind and caring it's amazing. I think the thing that impresses me the most is that they are so careful when they adopt out an animal. They all try so hard to be sure this will be an acceptable forever home. \r\n\r\n

    Pros

    Dedicated to all the animals who come through their door.

    Cons

    None
