  • 2. Glad to have another no-kill shelter

    by: lmpickford

    Your shelter sounds like it is very well run and especially being a no-kill non profit organization. The animals are lucky to have a place like this to go to.

    by: TwoMoons

    Good first impression, dedicated staff and regular volunteers

  • 4. No-Kill shelter is great!

    by: klfowler

    We also run a no-kill shelter - for cats and dogs. What a good feeling to know these pets will live here for life if they don't find there own home!\r\n\r\nInteresting that the need for paid staff comes up - volunteers just don't know how important they are!!! A volunteer is relied upon as much as a paid staff - if only they could understand that!!\r\n\r\nGood job!!!

    Pros

    Every shelter should be a no kill!

    Cons

    Over crowding can be a problem

  • 7. PALS Cares About Kitties

    by: PattiCat

    PALS is an awesome cat shelter. I first learned about PALS when I had a wonderful, loving, beautiful fluffy black cat hanging around my house in the freezing cold winter. Somehow the cat survived, although it stayed outside for a couple of months, living under our deck and in our neighbor's garage (I think). When I went outside it would run away, so I assumed it was feral. One sunny day, I took the time to sit on the deck and urged the cat out of hiding with food. From that time on, the cat was the most loving cat I had come across. Beautiful, too. I took it to the vet and found it was FIV positive and I couldn't keep it with my four other cats. I was devastated and called a friend of mine who had cats. She referred me to Jean Gallant, a wonderful animal-lover friend of her's...who is now also my friend! She was and still is involved with PALS. Although PALS couldn't take the cat because they cannot take in FIV positive cats, they referred me to SAVE-OUR-STRAYS in Fairfield...another wonderful cat/dog organization. Within a few days, they had found a home for my wonderful "Salem." !! I was thrilled! Thank you PALS, for helping me to find SAVE=OUR-STRAYS, and thank you to SAVE-OUR-STRAYS for saving this dear cat's life!\r\nPlease visit PALS and see the kitties and the wonderful conditions they are being kept in.

    Pros

    Caring Staff, Clean and Comfortable Living Quarters, Happy Cats, Great Medical Care, and best of all...this is a NO-KILL CAT SHELTER!

    Cons

    PALS can use more donations for the animals. If they had more space, they could have a room for FIV Positive Cats

  • 8. Great Place

    by: jduchette

    What a great place they have a great program in place cats all look great and considering the amount of cats it is a very clean place \n\nOne big room for the older cats to be viewed from inside or out gives the cats a chance to be with other cats

    Pros

    Awesome place

    Cons

    needs more help

  • 9. PALS loves cats

    by: lunathehun

    This is a great shelter with some great programs to help homeless cats. The large front window and common room help cats to view the world safely and interact with each other or find their own space. They have cat scratchers and beds around the room so that cats have their choice. When I visited, an employee was there interacting with the cats and they had a good amount of food and water.\nThe only suggestion I would make would be to do something about the floor of the outdoor cat enclosure. Its tough to keep grass where there are so many cats that would want to eat it, but maybe some other type of artificial floor material or fake grass would work. Just a thought.

    Pros

    Great program, nice newer building with outdoor cat enclosure

    Cons

    alot of mud in the outdoor cat enclosure, not enough grass/other flooring
