I had been searching for a new family member for quite some time and recently found my puppy on at the WARL. I had been reading up on adoption processes for other shelters and was boggled at how easily I was able to adopt. I did not have to prove anything, just walk in, fill out a couple of forms, and POOF, I had a dog. They did not give all of the information about the animals until you filled out the paperwork, but were quick to look at something you may have seen as a problem.

Pros: Nearby, uses to help view available pets

Cons: very lax adoption process

Help the W.A.R.L.

posted 7 years ago

i have adopted several dogs from the W.A.R.L. over the years.My last dog was a senior dog named Herbie. I didn't have him long, he died about a year after I got him, but he was the best dog i ever had.My heart always breaks when i go to a shelter, but the people at W.A.R.L are upbeat and you can see they are devoted to the animals. We need some outside help with funding,the economy is taking it's toll, and as always, the animals get the short end of the stick.With so many home foreclosures the shelters are overloaded with unwanted pets.I would ask anyone who cares about animals to make a donation to their local shelters, mine being the W.A.R.L.It would be great if we could win this makeover, but we are pretty far down on the list and it looks doubtful. I willl continue to support the W.A.R.L and pray for the animals and people who care for them.

Pros: friendly staff, animals well kept

Cons: noisey!!! outdated pens
