Best Shelter around!

posted 6 years ago

This shelter is the best. We went to a lot of shelters looking for just the right pet. Not only did I find him last year at Christmas but they do a super job of supplying you with materials, information, microchips, and follow ups. It doesn't get any better than this! We are one happy family for life!

Pros: Friendly, obviously love their animals

Cons: None

Proud to call it my local shelter

posted 7 years ago

While it is not the perfect shelter, I feel like they are working to get there and are sincere in their efforts to protect and save animals. It has been great getting familiar with their work and I really look forward to working with MCHA on programs to help stop the overpopulation and abuse of companion animals.

Also, my dog, Tidbit, came from this shelter. It was nice to see that they gave an older dog with some aggression issues a chance to survive. She was six when I adopted her and would posture and attack other animals. She now gets along with all the other critters at the sanctuary and has become a favorite friend among the cats - especially the feral kitten that showed up.

I think Sarah Hayes, the volunteers and others are making this one of the best shelters in the country. I can't wait to see where they are at in the near future.

Pros: challenge themselves to become better

Cons: older and past management
