I recently visited this animal shelter while visiting my mother who lives in Oklahoma. I wanted to visit a shelter in this state, as I work at a wonderful animal shelter in Colorado. I looked up the website of this shelter on the internet and it seems they have good policies and intentions, being a no kill shelter. However, when I visited the shelter, I was rudely greeted at the door, and when I asked to visit the dogs I was directed to several different rooms. The first room that I visited was filled with very large, fearfully barking dogs in small panel kennels. As we entered the room it was filled with noise and stress. The large dogs were in small stainless steel kennels with newspaper shredded and thrown in the kennel, no blankets or comforting toys. The next room contained dog runs with doors entering the outdoor areas, there were at least four or five dogs in each run, and they were all climbing on each other and extremely stressed. The cat rooms were no better with at least 5 cats in each kennel, and there were several dogs and cats that were just loose in the entry areas. I think that this organization needs to seriously reconsider their policies because they are very overpopulated. I have visited many shelters in Colorado and have worked and volunteered at 3 different shelters and I have never seen a shelter like this before.
Pros: They have good intentions to save the lives of these animals.
Cons: Very overcrowded and depressing conditions
