Terrible Staff and Shady

posted 6 years ago

I volunteered at the shelter fostering kittens and could not believe the terrible treatment they gave me. The staff is completely rude, they don't get back to you when you leave messages when there is an emergency. Once you have the fosters, they expect you to keep them. Starting off with the dog training Melissa, she is very rough and expect the volunteers to be the same way, even when the dog listens. The F.O.C.A.S. group told me that they are a "NO Kill" shelter and the Vet Doctor told us they are. It is also funny that all the kittens there look like the stray cats that are Outside the shelter and Dr. Pazos and the staff advised "not to feed them" and they would "eventually" bring them in. THEY ARE BREEDING THEM FOR MONEY. During one of my visits I noticed this dog that has been there for quite awhile. To my surprise, she recently had given birth by the size of her nipples which is obvious. HHmmmmmm, makes you wonder? They flat out deny everything. There are also rooms, rows 5 and up that "no one" is allowed to go view. There are many secrets at that place and hopefully everything will come to surface. Just take a stroll to the shelter and look around the parking lot at about 15 or so cats. The animals are adorable and deserve to have a better staff taking care of them.

Pros: great animals

Cons: terrible staff

Can't really say anything good

posted 7 years ago

This facility is a mess in so many ways. From the inexperienced staff to their cleaning methods to their lack of animal knowledge and horrible customer's a county run faclity with union employee's, need I say more? Their employee's are working for their benefits, not the animals. It's a shame, the building is actually very nice but they don't appreciate what they have or take care of it.

Pros: Large, nice facility

Cons: Too many to list
