    I walk the dogs maybe one or twice a week at the shelter. I am a student at niu and would like to run my own shelter in the future. I think the people at the Dekalb County Animal Shelter are doing a wonderful job. They keep the dogs and cats until they find a matter how long that takes. I think the staff at the shelter also do a great job finding the right person to go with each animal. Keep up the good work:)


    This may be a small shelter but they care about the animals a great deal....I think they just need a little more help from people. Other than that i think they are doing a wonderful job


    The only con i can think of is they need more people to help them

    I volunteered to walk dogs here in college, it always made me so sad, i wanted to take all the animals home. I eventually adopted my cat, Kitty from here, and i felt good about giving her a good home. At the shelter she was in case that was sitting on top of a cage with a barking dog in it. The shelter just needs a huge update to the whole facility, it's too small.


    doing the best they can


    very small space with a lot of animals
