  • 1. Popular local institution

    by: ssprince

    Both my current pets came from there at earlier points in their lives; they were given to me by individuals who didn't want to return them though they were fine animals. (The cat's deceased owner's son had acquired a dog since his own cat died [the dog was found at a county transfer station, tossed over the fence at night!] and was too allergic for both; the dog requires more supervision than roaming loose with assorted livestock [he mauled a goat].) \n\nI have been there a number of times to donate bedding, collars of sizes I didn't need, food coupons; and helped with their mailing list for a while. If it were closer, I'd like to volunteer for walking & socializing animals. \n

    Pros

    Good cheer

    Cons

    A little cramped; hoping to rebuild?

  • 2. My county shelter is terrific.

    I have been to this shelter in person a half dozen times - with family members who have adopted from them and twice for the selection and adoption of Sierra, my own beagley dog; and I have visited their listings online hundreds of times. I wish they were closer to us so we could drop in and volunteer. They really care about their "clients", and have to do so much with so little.\r\nThe adoption process is not difficult, and they will not rush you into anything, but also will not draw things out either. They carefully explain everything and answer all questions. They always want to hear how the animals they place are doing after they leave there.

    Pros

    They truly care about this place and the animals.

    Cons

    Need a bigger facility.
