We have updated pictures of all of our cats and dogs up for adoption and even some pretty cool videos of them. Our office hours are Monday through Friday from 8-4 with weekend and afterhour appointments available. Thanks for checking us out - and please vote for us and add any action shot pictures that are small sized for the zootoo website and help us get enough points to possibly win a shelter makeover- which we really need!

Outstanding shelter with a Big Heart

posted 6 years ago

This is a perfect shelter that is well overdue to expand to keep up with the amount of animals in the area. This was built many years ago and was perfect for the low amount of animals at that time. Now with more houses and people have 8 kennels is not enough for such a big area. Cat room needs a lot of work it wasn't designed for cats when it opened years ago. Now houses several cats with no room. Please help this shelter it is in so much need of more room.

Pros: Awesome Staff

Cons: To Small to Keep up with the Community

Small Shelter With a BIG Heart...

posted 6 years ago

Everyone at the Horseheads Dog Control Animal Shelter is very caring. They give the animals a chance (depite breed), and go to great lengths to try and improve not only there physical well-being, but mental well being as well. they go above and beyond, working very late hours (on call 24 hours a day 365 days a year) and reaching out to as many as they can help. the problem then comes in THEY DONT HAVE ENOUGH ROOM! They have a capacity for 8 dogs, maximum 16, which is not nearly enough room for the growing demand which the community places. They genuinly care about each and every animal in there care, and work with potential adoptors until a perfect match is made. They dont just adopt out to unload there animals, they try to match each person with what will potentially be there perfect pet. Check them out on PetFinder.com at zipcode 14845... they update at least once a week. I would LOVE to see the shelter expand and be updated to more modern kennels and cat rooms. PLEASE HELP OUT! Thank YOU!

Pros: staff knowledge and care, euthanasia policy, STAFF

Cons: CAPACITY IS TOO SMALL, out of date animal living space, small working space, community dosent know much about them

Holly's Hounds

Went to Holly's Hounds for the first time last Friday. First thing I noticed was all the cages were a metal wire mesh WITHOUT any padding or something soft for the puppies to lay on. Then I noticed a … more ›

I looked at getting a dog from Holly hounds. They are expensive for buying dogs which are basically just mixed breeds (I love my mixed breed dog but paying as much as for a pure bred is ridiculous). A… more ›
