The humane society's low cost neutering program has helped me help afford to take care of more cats than i would have without them.

The people involved with AAHS have been phenomenally helpful over the years. Four of my five cats are rescues from AAHS. A few years ago, I fell in love with a big brown tabby at the adoption center. I was reluctant to adopt him because he had been declawed and I had four dogs. He had been adopted and then returned at least once to the shelter. He was a biter. He bit my daughter's arm leaving two large gashes. I called the center. The first reaction was to let me know I could return him, and there wasn't any underlying judgment detected in her voice. This made me feel better. However, I didn't want to return him. I wanted to know how I could help him adjust. I got a lot of information that day and his biting behavior ceased. He is a big cuddler now.

I adopted one of my cats from AAHS three years ago, and the service provided by the staff was exceptional! They were very helpful and knew each cat's personality and quirks, so it was an easy process to find the perfect match for our home. I would certainly recommend this organization to others in our area if they're looking to adopt or to use any of their other great, low-cost services!!!

AAHS has amazing service! They are very clean and make sure the animals are well taken care of. I went in to visit for about a month before I adopted my cat (back in August), and every time the staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the animals and their "personalities". I've been in several more times since adopting her, and continue to be impressed. If I had the means, I would happily adopt from them again!
