  • 1. Some great dogs are waiting for homes here!

    by: buddyandmimirule

    I adopted my two dogs from this shelter, about 2 years apart. My daughter also adopted her two dogs there. The people working here are great, very kind and helpful. They keep the place clean, and take great care of the animals, but this shelter is old and needs to be replaced. It's also in a bad location, lots of construction going on close by the freeway, and right now it's not convenient to get to. There has been talk about building a new shelter in a better location, but I haven't heard anything lately, so I'm assuming money could be an issue, though I hear that the person in charge of the shelter makes a really nice salary. Wouldn't it be nice if some of that could go to the animals? Anyway, I highly recommend it for a good place to find a wonderful pet, and I am always recommending it to people I meet when I'm out walking my dogs!


    Great people working here.


    Outdated shelter, out of the way location.

    I no longer live in the area, but this is the shelter I got both of my dogs from. The staff were very friendly and helped my family find the right dogs for us.
