I was introduced to this great animal shelter by one of my friends who used to run this shelter and though she has since changed jobs, she is still very active there. This no-kill rescue shelter does an excellent job of taking in dogs and cats that have been abandoned, found, unable to be cared for by their owners, etc. They are a hard working, compassionate group of people who act on behalf of these animals to try and find them their "Forever Homes" and they do this most efficiently and effectively. They are partners with the Petsmart Store in Clive, IA where they take any adoptable kittens and cats so they receive better exposure and so increase their chances of being adopted. They are also associated with the Rescue Wagon program, whereby most of the dogs that aren't adopted from their shelter are picked up and taken to a larger metropolitan area which also increases their chance of finding homes. The cleanliness of this shelter is unbelievable considering the amount of puppies they sometimes have. They follow a very rigorous system in order to maintain this level. They have many volunteers who appear to me to be more than happy to donate their time cleaning, walking the dogs and helping with the never ending task of fund raising. The animals brought into this shelter are all checked for medical problems, vaccinated and spaded/neutered before they are put up for adoption. And this is just what I am aware of for I know they do so much more for the community of Fairfield-animals of the human persuasion included! I am very impressed and very happy with the new four legged friend they helped me to find.
