  • 3. Animals come first

    by: Cameroon

    We got our dog from this shelter several years ago. They encouraged us to introduce propective adoptive pets to our other dog. They allowed us to spend as much time as we wanted to consider the animal. Animals are first with them. \r\nThey separate the large dogs and have a community room for the some to sleep together.

    Pros

    Animals are first with them

    Cons

    They could be a little more friendly to people

  • 4. My 2 best dogs came from Here

    by: snowball1

    My 2 best dogs came from here. My fist dog was my 6th birthday present. He was a shy little white thing that was in the corrner of his kennel. I didnt want to look at any other dog. I remeber getting to pick out his leash and collar to take him home with. Well that was 19 years ago. 7 years ago after my fist dog past away I went back to get another dog. Luke was a black dog that when I saw him was outside in a run, and I am not kidding when I saw he almost jump right out of the top when we saw him. We took hime home that day and he was perfect in every way. I would say no matter how far away you are from them you should go and take a look at what this great shelter has to offer.

    Pros

    They are very easy going, unlike some shelters I have gone to.

    Cons

    none
