Never go!!!!

posted 6 years ago

My family and I went in to look for a dog. While walking to the front door I thought we were at the wrong place. How disgusting, a tin trailer that is falling apart. I dont see how that is human for the animals. While walking in the front doors, we were NOT spoken to. When asked to see there dogs they acted like we were bothering them. It is disgraceful. The lady behind the desk was so RUDE that my 4 year old son asked why she was so mad. That is the attitude we got the whole time. We didnt adopt a dog due to the fact of the HORRIABLE experience we had. I would NEVER recommend this place to anyone. Go someplace else!!!!!!

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Everything

Cvhs needs more!

posted 6 years ago

CVHS is full of knowledgable people who want to help but it is just to small to do the needs these animals call for.I believe we have to get this shelter on the right track for a make over!! We all need to help and get this done for the animals! CVHS deserves this.

Pros: This is a great place for any pet in need of a temporary home

Cons: The shelter is just too small!
