Q: The one thing!
Mar 29, 2009
VERY tough question to answer. I would have to say the number of adopters! More adopters would mean more room for other needy animals. If I could change physical aspects of the shelter it would be LARGER dog kennels and cat cages (preferably large cat ROOMS - a cageless environment!) Ah, I can only dream. . . I wish I could give the staff and volunteers a shelter for the future. One that would allow cats to have a cageless environment, a cuddle room for getting aquainted, and dogs would have indoor kennels with outdoor access 24/7. Not to mention a building that had total heating and cooling capabilities! Only wish we had been in the top 20 for the makeover!

The shelter here in Portsmouth is the oldest shelter in America. It is literaaly insufficient and may be closed down. I guess if I could only pick one thing, it would be the size. The shelter is definitely too small for the number of animals. This shelter also doubles as the drop off site for Animal Control. They are a no kill shelter but were just in the newspaper yesterday indicating that they migh have to euthanize some of the animals as they are full to capacity.
