We can’t thank Tri-county enough for their dedication to animals in need. We have just adopted our second “baby” this week from tri-county and couldn’t be happier. Betty has come home and understands she’s home. She’s settled in beautifully. It’s stressful and a stress they did not ask for. Tri-county went out of their way to ensure we were a good match and all of our questions and concerns were addressed before we left. It’s sad to see the numbers of dogs in need of a home. I wish we could help them all... so thankful there is a place like tri-county to keep them safe until they find their forever homes. Thanks for all you do! The Jensen Family & Betty (Arelys)

Adopted my handsome boy from Tri-County almost two months ago! The staff was very sweet and told me all about his personality prior to adopting. The shelter is extremely clean and well-kept and I saw numerous people walking dogs and playing with them in the play-yards. When I adopted him the vet techs went over his complete medical history which put me at ease especially since he was rescued from a hoarding situation. I am so grateful to Tri-County for giving me my sweet boy and I am thankful for the work they do every day! You guys rock!

Tri County is great! You can tell they really love all of the animals in their shelter. They care for them amazingly and help socialize them responsibly. They make it hard to adopt -- which is a good thing! They want to make sure every single one of their adoptions goes to the right owner, someone who will take care of the animal for the rest of their lives! They're also a No-Kill shelter and take on a tremendous amount of responsibility for each little soul they keep for their lives. The animals seem happy and truly cared for.

Tri-County Animal Rescue is such a warm, inviting, loving animal shelter. They treat the animals with such love and compassion. There's a crazy stigma about people who work with animals being bad with people. I think people are bad with animals. Working for a rescue or shelter and seeing how many animals come in neglected, malnourished and simply lacking the basic needs. People call trying to surrender their senior family pet that they have had since puppy stage. Seeing this day after day is draining and emotionally exhausting. The tri-county staff always come in with love in their hearts for these furry friends! 5 stars for you tri-county!

We adopted a perfect dog from you last weekend. He really is the best little guy you could hope for. We now understand the vetting process more to get the right family with the right dog. Thank you all for all your help making everyone happy.

I have been an avid volunteer of this shelter for over 12 years. The way they love and treat each animal like it's their own pet is remarkable. They are always cleaning and making sure the pups have clean kennels and runs. The cat room is so clean for having to house around 60 cats(all free roaming). They strive to find the perfect home for these babies. I really commend them on their extreme generosity and huge heartedness when it comes to rescuing these sweet little babies. God bless you all!

I was raised around dogs and my family was a foster family growing up! Growing up around shelters you get to see a variety of facilities, some really great and some terrible. I can easily say without a doubt that Tri County is one of the best run shelters I have ever seen. It is always clean and everyone that works there is so helpful and kind! The dogs there are happy and aren't scared like normal shelter dogs. And their volunteers are always taking the dogs out so they have lots of human interaction! I always recommend this shelter to friends who are interested in adopting and continuously donate and keep up with their website to see all the great things they do! God bless you all!

I walked in with the sole intention of just looking for a new friend. I was amazed at how well the shelter is taken care of. The front desk greeted me and pointed me in the right direction where i could look at all the animals they have for adoption. I saw a cutie by the name of Charlie, and we immediately had a connection. I filled out an application and when I was approved we went outside to play. He really perked up in the sun. Such a sweet happy boy. I went in and told the front desk ladies I wanted to adopt him. They explained the process and explained the adoption donation. It was a little higher then I expected, but once I was apprised of what it covers and that part of the proceeds is a direct donation to Tri-County. Well worth it! Kudos to you Tri-County and thanks for matching me with my baby!

Tri-County is the cleanest, friendliest shelter I've ever been to. I donate money to help the babies every month and I think it couldnt go to a better shelter. They've saved over 55,000 animals and because their a no-kill I know that they all have found their best homes possible. The dogs and cats are all fed and very well taken care of. They even have feral cats, ducks, birds, otters, and a mascot piggie Sunshine that they all take care of. Give this shelter the love it deserves!

First i want to say Thank you to TCHS. If it weren't for them i would be so lonely. My wife passed away mid June 2006. Since then i've been so secluded in my house. My friends worried. I decided it was time for a little company. I went in not expecting too much but was surely amazed. I took home the sweetest dog I ever met. We are now inseparable and i don't go anywhere without Khloe. Shes made me more active and more sociable. Thank you for saving my life!!

Tri-County Humane Society....WOW. is all i can say. My kids volunteer in the cat room on weekends and after school and they always come home with pictures and stories of their favorite cat being adopted. I cant describe how good it feels as a parent to have your child feel genuinely good about what their doing. Way to go TCHS

I can not even begin to explain my experience at Tri-County Humane Society. The staff was so attentive and polite. They really helped me find the perfect match. Although the application was very thorough its good to see that they actually care about where these animals end up (unlike PBACC or BACC). The adoption donation was affordable considering it covers EVERYTHING (microchip, rabies tag, + the spay/neuter) Roughly a spay/neuter at any vet will cost around $500-$600. Please adopt, donate, or volunteer at this fantastic organization. The only TRUE 100% NO KILL SHELTER in the area.

I walk dogs with Tri-County, and i can honestly say the staff cares so much for the shelter and the animals they take care of. The grounds are so clean, they have 2 lakes with tons of wildlife on property. The dogs are so loving and they just want to be played with and find their new family. I strongly recommend this shelter to anyone looking for a friend. Please come by and if you can't adopt, VOLUNTEER!

I went into Tri-County to donate my beloved Cupcakes toys. I was still mourning when i went in but something was drawing me in. As soon as i walked in i was greeted by the most welcoming front desk staff i have ever seen. Then, Moosie took my attention. He was in the corner of his cage scared because the other dogs were barking to say hello. I filled out the application and once approved i took him outside for a walk with a volunteer. He immediately stole my heart so i went in to adopt. The adoption fees were affordable and since there a non profit you KNOW it goes to help the other furr babies find their home. Moosie's been with me for 8 years now and i couldn't thank you guys enough! You rock tri-county!!

This is the cleanest and most well cared for shelter i have EVER been to. You can genuinely feel the love the staff has for every single animal in their care. The cages, and runs were spotless. The cats are all free roaming in the House of Cats, so you get to see their personalities. I recommend anyone to go to Tri-County and find their new best friend!
