  • 1. The new shelter a huge improvement

    by: robertbutler

    the new shelter is alot better than the smaller older one. the litter box odor in the cat rooms about knock you over though. Probably the cheap donated litter. & they can't help it.


    The new shelter is alot better


    the cat box odor


    by: tdudis

    We had a kitten relinquished to our shelter that had a microchip registered by this shelter not too far away from us. We called and they couldnt get the owner to return their calls, but they asked if they could have the kitten back to be sure it went to a good home. They were very responsive in returning our phone calls and trying to locate the owner. Thumbs up to this shelter.


    Helps out when they can, seem to really care about their animals

    I have been to TAPS many times. The staff is great, and they really care for the animals. A friend of mine adopted 3 pets from TAPS, and they are great! The new building is very nice.


    A great place



  • 4. MOre room now!

    this place was alot better than the old smaller shelter. The cat rooms smelled due to the cheap cat litter that I am sure it donated to them and they can't help the fact that donations are the cheaper less effective odor controlling cat litter. \r\n\r\nMost people can look past this stuff and realize that these places can not be perfect. \r\n\r\nJust like Sue P. from pets with out parents said they at one time had way more pets than they had room for just like Pets without parents do at times, which I 'm sure this is the case in many shelters throughout the country. WHich makes things difficult even on those with the best intentions!


    They needed the bigger shelter.


    too bad someone wouldn't donate better cat litter

    i have not been to taps, but i know peoople who have adopted animals from there, and who have taken animals there they could not care for. i admire any facility that does what they do. i have never heard a negative comment about the facility.


    has a good reputation



  • 6. Shelter paved the way.

    by: TeresaKline

    I am part of Pets Without Parents of Mason and Logan Counties and Taps has helped pave the way for other rescue groups like us.They have set a great example and continue to save as many pets as they can for their community.


    They care and have saved so many animals.


    Like all of us not enough room
