    I have supported this shelter for many years. They do the best they can will the funding they have. They deserve better. They need money.

    by: BuilderBob

    This little place does a lot with limited resources. Faced with a intake of lot of breeds that are not easily adoptable they do a good job with what they have. Great team of volunteers.


    Lots of enthusiasm


    sad old facility

  • 3. wonderful!!!

    by: crowlili

    I live pretty far from PAHS, but my two friends live nearby. They were there looking into adopting a rabbit when they saw a chihuahua mix female. They knew that I was looking for another dog at the time, and she seemed perfect. They called me immediately, and the staff at PAHS went above and beyond with helping me arrange to come and meet the pup. They knew I was serious, having to take a 2 hour ride to get there, so they were very accomodating, and allowed me to bring my other dog for a meeting. It was love at first sight, and in about a week, after she had been spayed, I brought my new girl home. I have to thank the wonderful staff at PAHS who really took the time to help me, and who went the extra mile to rescue my girl from wandering along a highway, abandoned. THANK YOU PAHS!


    caring staff that goes above and beyond

    PAHS is open 6 days a week and they have alot of cats and dogs for adoption. People are nice, animals are well cared for. But the place is old, and they tell me funds are needed to fix up the place. I adopted a beautiful pit bull from there.


    Very helpful, lots of animals to adopt


    Building is old, needs refurbishing

  • 5. unfair

    by: pitbulllover

    this shelter is in desperate need of renovations!!! the staff cares SO much and it is unfair how they are overlooked! The video under "volunteer" on this website is of this poor little shelter, and there isn't even mention of it. Please help by donating to the Plainfield Area Humane Society.


    a small shelter that really cares!

    by: piranhapetter

    It's great to see people do their job out of true love. The conditions of the shelter are pretty bad, due to underfunding, yet the volunteers and staff members come to work every day with a smile.
