I adopted my Shepard mix, Pitta Atma in 2005. She was and has been an amazing teacher and supporter to me and my family. I had no intention of adopting that day as I already had 3 cats and 2 dogs. When I met her I just knew. I was headed out of town for an extensive trip and CHS was kind enough to old onto her for me a few extra days so that I would be available for her new family integration.
We have been a happy family ever since. I still have 2 dogs and 2 cats so I consider myself "FULL". If I had the desire to adopt again I will certainly visit CHS. I have recommended them many times as a local shelter for adoption and will continue to do so!
I have been a volunteer for over 13 years now and this is a great organization. They are a low kill shelter and one of the 1st shelters in Columbus to adopt out pit bulls and pit bull type dogs, which is why they are so special to me. I am a pit bull lover and have been for over 20 years when I was given my 1st pit bull/Staffordshire terrier. I had no idea at that time what kind of dog Scooter was, he was just a cute puppy that needed a good home. I have since had 4 pit bulls and they are the best dogs ever. The shelter has a great staff and wonderful volunteers. It is a privilege to work with such a great group of animal lovers.
I have been to this shelter on numerous occasions as my sister is one of their volunteers. They are a well run, clean and low kill shelter that tries to find homes for all of the animals it takes in. They have many puppies, dogs, kittens and cats who could use a "fur"ever home.
