The people at this facility are the most caring and loving animal rescuers I have ever encountered. They genuinely invest their hearts in the wellbeing of these animals. When I found my beautiful and loving Sean who has added even more love to our home than we could have imagined, Sonna accually had tears in her eyes as I left. Tears of joy that he was going to a better home that he came from. Before I even went to the shelter, they called my vet and asked them detailed questions about my husband's and my parenting skills and our habits regarding our pets health care. They are wonderful people who are earning their stars for their crowns in heaven here on earth.

Pros: Caring,knowlegeable and personable staff

Cons: Small facility, but in process of building new one

Excellent help if you need to place your pet

I guess the small rundown shelter is true in most of the shelters in our area, but this one is on its way to being replaced, thank goodness. The folks who work and volunteer here are learning how remarkable dog-saving programs of rescue transports, pre-adoption screenings, and foster families can be. They have a ways to go, but are on the right track.

Pros: Go out of their way to help pets

Cons: Small, rundown shelter
