The facility is new and beautiful, but the people who work with the animals don't have enough volunteers to walk/run the dogs (this is what one of the vet techs explained to me) so a lot of the dogs are really hyper - mainly because they are cooped up at least 23 hours of the day in their kennels. My dog was considered "hyper-active" but after I took him home he calmed down a lot - so don't let this discourage you as a prospective adopter if all the dogs seem too hyper.
I tried to submit a volunteer application and foster application but the people at the front desk had no idea what to do with either of them. They kind of made me feel like I was a moron, like they had better things to do than submit an application (I'm sure they do but they didn't have to make me feel like that - I'm just trying to help.) Maybe that's why there isn't a lot of free help. I think I got one email about volunteering to upkeep the sorry website, but there was no other follow up because I couldn't make the last minute web design training date.
Other than that, I can tell the people who work there really care about the animals and make a nice connection with them. They had a lot of information about the individual personality of the dogs I was looking at, and they were more than helpful to allow me to see a pup in one of the viewing rooms. I just wish they had more volunteer help if needed.
Pros: new facility, clean, organized, informative staff (the ones that actually work with the animals)
Cons: uninformed front desk, not enough volunteers
