When I adopted Simon from the Fmhs 21/2 years ago the volunteers were helpful and seemed to have a passion for the animals. Simon was $125.00, but when i brought proof that I had him spayed I received $75.00 back. It was $50.00 well spent. After reading all the negative reviews on this facility I feel sad for the animals and anger towards the management. I think its time someone steps up to the plate and sends some heads arollin. Shape up fmhs, make us proud not ashamed.
Pros: volunteers who care

They don't do crap if you report anything to them. People I know have reported some things to them, and they just say, well, call the sheriff. then they don't really care afterwards. They seem like a strictly dog and cat place, too.
Pros: They seem like a good shelter
Cons: They don't do anything if you report animal abuse or neglect.
