While their mission is admirable, this organization falls severely short. While working there I experienced labor law violations, entire department walkouts, puny resources provided by leadership, unsafe working environment, and fiscal mismanagement. I am not the first to bring these concerns to the director who is obviously completely overwhelmed. The place is several hundreds of thousands of dollars in the hole - financial statements are available - and lovely staff members are working out of the shell of a burned out building as they have failed to build a real shelter or make significant improvements since a fire ((caused by one of their employees)) burned the shelter nearly five years ago. Think carefully about where you donate your dollars. It's a shame; the animals in Berkeley deserve better than the way their Humane Society is being managed.

I adopted a German Shepherd mix in 2003 from the Berkeley East Bay Humane Society after joining the organization as a volunteer. As a volunteer, I felt the organization did a great job of training and supervising my work and the other volunteers. The passion of the staff for their work was evident through their attitudes and practices, and the animals seemed very well cared for. The adoption experience was very thorough, and I appreciated the attention the organization paid to making sure the animal would be adopted into a stable, long-term home. On a personal note, I am grateful that this organization was able to see something special in my dog and provide her with the care and support she needed to become a member of a family. We love her dearly.
