Reviews for Hopkins County Humane Society Inc
I have to say I was very disappointed with the Hopkins County Humane Society. I recently adopted a mixed dog who had been shot in the leg when she was picked up. The leg was healed up just fine, but when I picked her up I was shocked to find out that the only other care she had gotten was a rabies vaccine, despite being there over 3 months (according to the petfinder ad). They also told me she was 7 months old, when both the vet records I got from them AND a personal vet at my home told me she was a year and a half and therefore should have been spayed when she got in. They only gave me 50 dollars toward a spay that was obviously much more expensive, and if she received any medical care it was horribly done--she had no vaccines, no heartworm prevention, and she was laced with hookworm. If I hadn't adopted her, she probably would have starved to death due to the worms since she wasn't eating. She is a FANTASTIC dog and I feel extremely blessed that I was able to save her from such a place. I wouldn't recommend donating to this organization since they aren't willing to spring for the necessary care neededfor their dogs, but I'd encourage those who are willing to put in a bit of money to help an injured, starving animal to adopt from there and get them out!!
