    i like this animal shelter but i think that they could do a little more to clean it up





  • 2. GREAT PLACE!!

    by: brnz

    I can say from personal experience as a former staff member of WRHA that the place is good. Everybody cares about the animals a ton and there are good cleaning procedures that help keep our furry friends as healthy as possible while they are there. Coming from me this review may not mean much but I'm not just saying it because I worked there. I'm saying it because it's true. The place is a diamond in the rough and the staff are very good people. WRHA inspired me to get back to college and finish my A.A.S. in veterinary technology and I'm on my way to a B.S. in biology and then on to vet school. WRHA will always have a spot in my heart and someday I will be able to return what I gained from working there tenfold. I love WRHA!!

    When I worked in Syracuse (as a vet), we would have people call here when they had a pet that needed to be put up for adoption. They would take in animals that might require a little searching to find the right home for, such as older pets.

  • 5. The place to find great friends

    Great dog & cat adoption set up. When we were looking for another dog companion for our dog Allie, this is where we found Maggie. They required us to bring Allie for a meeting with our prospective adoptee and found the staff very helpful in providing tips for ensuring they became friends. They followed-up with us to ensure a good fit.


    No kill shelter


    They need more room
