  • 1. I will never go to Woods again.

    by: DanielleNoel

    I went to adopt a dog from Woods, was approved one day, and when I went back the next I was told a mistake had been made and I was no longer approved and couldn't take the dog. I later found out that after I had placed a hold on the dog, a family came and a worker at woods decided they would be a better fit for the dog and adopted the dog out to them. While this is not necessarily a bad practice, the underhanded way they went about treating me was absolutely unacceptable. The lady in charge was rude and unfeeling. I will never adopt a dog from here again or recommend it to anyone. Especially when right next door is a shelter with heart and compassion.


    very clean and low kill


    horrible customer service and shady policies

  • 2. Shelter Heaven

    by: Shaklana

    Woods strives to do whats best for the animals. The cats live in a cattery, they are allowed to roam inside or out. The dogs have the greatest kennels, inside and outside areas and everyday they get to go out into yards with all their doggy friends. When they are in the kennels, they get their very own toys to destuff and chew. The staff and volenteers are always checking on all the animals to be sure they have all that they need. Both the cats and dogs get clean beds every day and bedding to do with what they want. Its the best interm housing for cats or dogs while they are waiting for their forever home.


    Beautiful facility designed with the animals in mind.


    Needs more landscaping and to finish the buildings.

  • 3. We love Woods!

    This is by far the best shelter I have ever been to. It has rooms that open to the outside for cats (not cages!) and the dogs have play groups that hardly spend any time in their kennels. Everything is clean, hardly an odor at all, and you get so much with an adoption!! the animal is altered, microchipped, vaccinated, liscenced, you get food, treats, carriers, leashes, and toys! Woods has lots of community events and tours, and are open on Saturdays and late on Wednesdays so people who work can come visit!


    care about the animals, clean, great value, wonderful staff and volunteers


    not finished building yet!!
