Reviews for Humane Society Of Lackawanna County

Rating: 5 stars  

This shelter is fantastic. The facility is quite old but the amount of cleaning and upkeep the small staff does truly shows. The animals are clean, their runs are clean, and the donated items are kept neatly stored. The staff is helpful, though I wish they'd smile more. The volunteers are a truly dedicated bunch. Their new foster program is a great way for people go get involved - hands on contribution to their community! The shelter is the only one in our county, and I can't imagine getting a dog from any other means. For me, for the rest of my life, this shelter is it.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Coordinating the foster program

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Improve the physical facility, ask board members to become more involved DAILY and allow cats to inhabit the extra empty building on the property therefore increasing the space for dogs and allowing room for small animals to be easily seen.
