I live on Cape Cod, MA. but travel to my home town of Oakland Ca. and while there every yr. I stop in and visit the shelter. I started when they were still working/adopting out of a trailer and did such a wonderful job with the conditions they had at that time. I witnessed such love and care for all the animals that were in their care. I volunteer at a shelter here on the Cape so I am fully aware of the dedication it takes to be a volunteer. Their new facility is awesome and so much healthier for both the pets and volunteers.
This shelter was amazing, it was a clean and friendly environemnt, unlike many other shelters. It was great to know that when I adopted a cat that it was up to date on all its vaccines,had been tested, spayed or neutered, and even has a microchip!
I totally love this place. I already have too many pets as it is but I wanted to check it out cause I saw this super cute cat in the newspaper and couldn't resist just a peek. By the time I was able to visit the cat was already adopted. But it didn't really matter cause there were so many other awesome cats there. They had a cute little dog there too. I think it was a pug breed. My favorite part was how friendly the cats were. It almost seemed like they were in homes or something. Lots of purring. Then I met this young girl that works there and she was so into all the cats. So I kind of think that is why the cats are so happy. This girl and all the Volunteers that I saw were very genuinely caring towards the cats. It was really a cool experience. Now, if I can just convince my husband that we need another pet!
A clean, friendly, welcoming animal shelter. The animals are well taken care of and well-socialized. Our experience was lovely. We would recommend VHS very highly.
