  • 1. Best Shelter I've ever seen!

    by: doubleblessings

    I'd been looking for a shelter dog to adopt and visited three local shelters that made me sick... I mean the dogs were sick and not being taken care of the way they could be if they had the funds. The staff at Shelby county were friendly and loving of their residents. They knew which dogs were children friendly and knew the history of the one we adopted. She was clean, happy, and calm. She had been spayed after she had weaned her pups. Very organized, very caring, AWESOME!!

    Pros

    Clean, friendly, familiarity with residents

    Cons

    none

  • 2. My Zoe came from here

    by: Quincee

    The people were very helpful. They chose several dogs that they felt were good dogs with children and would enjoy 40 acres to run on.\nThey were very excited to find a home for little Zoe. They helped her with shots, spaying and all kinds of advice for care. They also feature a different dog or cat for adoption on our local news channel. I know several people who found their best friends that way.

    Pros

    The people were very sweet to my shy daughter

    Cons

    Need more money for upkeep

  • 3. Ok shelter

    by: fieldhn

    My only contact with this shelter was looking for a lost pet. I have never lost a pet in my life until this, yet I was treated like a horrible person. I was told to contact them once a day to see if my cat had been brought in and to stop by and look for him. When I called 2 days in a row and showed up to look for him on day 3, I was told that I was calling and coming by too much. That's what I was told to do! Also, the shelter was very messy and smelled horrible. The staff acted like I was a bother and one staff member went out of her way to give me verbal directions around the shelter just to avoid getting out of her chair to show me (which would have been quicker and easier).

    Pros

    easy to get in touch with

    Cons

    bad customer service, bad location
