I have been a volunteer here when they were short staffed, I have donated food when they were low, and I have needed services from them so I have seen every angle. I have to say there are one or two great people there, I wish I could remember the lady's name, however, the rest of the staff is down right RUDE. Not only from my experience have I seen animals not fully cared for and staff with awful attitudes but many people who have tried to save an animal by adopting have been disappointed in how little the staff seemed interested in trying to help them. I feel so bad for the animals that have to live in this. I would only recommend this place in hopes that someone would get these animals out.

This shelter has become a safe haven for animals needing a second chance at life. Rather than utilizing euthanasia, the shelter works hand in hand with rescue groups, holds multiple adoption events on a weekly basis, and does a Trap-Spay/Neuter-Release program for feral cats. Volunteers are always welcomed, and the shelter also participates in a mentor program for high school students, giving them a wonderful opportunity for hands on education and true glimpse into the life of a shelter animal and the environment in which it lives. It is staffed by only a handful of employees who treat the animals with lots of TLC and devote much time to working one on one with those animals who are scared, sick, or just need some extra attention.

This shelter has grown from a shelter that exists to control the animal population to one that addresses volunteer opportunities, educational opportunities for youth and the community and a shelter that first addresses animal management with rescue and adoption as opposed to population control mainly with euthasia. It is a compassionate, well managed and a professionally run animal shelter. It has begun to grow Trap, Neuter, and Release programs and to assist and encourage the community to spay and neuter to control the population to lessen the need to house and feed unowned animals. It has become more rounded and more open to community outreach and attempts to interact with the community.
