Columbia-Greene Humane Society truly needs this makeover
posted 6 years ago
My husband and I adopted our cat, Kittles, (He was Eli to them), December 2001. The first couple of weeks were extremely hard for us since Kittles was sick and needed medication but would hide for days at a time. I even considered bringing him back because I knew he needed the medicine and since I did not know where he was and could not give it to him, I did not want him to get worse or better yet, die. I spoke with Charlene and she told me he would be fine and just give him some time and pretend like he wasn't there. He would come around. She was so understanding, compassionate and sensitive to my concerns! And you know what, just like she said, Kittles did come around within the next couple of days. I was so thankful for her advice and am even more thankful all these years later that Kittles is a part of our life. You know, we did not just go to the shelter one day and pick Kittles, we had made a few visits and discussed the different cats to choose from. Once we decided on Kittles, we knew it would be a couple of weeks before we could take him home. We went back a couple of times those two weeks so he would be more familiar with us instead of us being total strangers. During our visits we would also look around at the other animals and it was clearly evident way back then, that this shelter needed enlarging. It was also clear to us that no matter what, the staff would house whatever animals they could so they would be taken care of. My husband and I donate when we can but with the economy as bad as it is, things have been tight. I am sure we are not the only ones that have not been able to give what we would give it we had it! This is surely putting a strain on this facility and is also more of a reason they need this makeover. I firmly believe in my heart that if Columbia-Greene Humane Society won this contest, they would make this shelter the best in the land.
Pros: Awesome, dedicated and hardworking staff/volunteers
Cons: The building is in deteriorating shape and is extremely small for the amount of animals they take care of
