I recently got divorced and I thought getting a cat would help me get through this rough time and keep me company. I went to the animal rescue and was happy to find a cat room where all of the cats are loose and not in cages. I was really able to interact with the cats and that helped me choose the right one. I am so in love with my new tabby that I had to write this review and say thanks

We had a great experience with this animal shelter. We found a stray dog wandering in the road, obviously lost. We brought him to the shelter and they scanned him for a micro-chip. Unfortunately he did not have a micro-chip but the shelter took him in and gave him a second chance.

I am a volunteer with Tri-County Animal Rescue for two years now. I enjoy working with the shy dogs to help them become more adoptable. The staff at Tri-County are very caring and go to great lengths to rescue these poor animals from horrible situations and I am happy to be a part of the team

I brought my entire family with me to Tri-County Animal Rescue to look for a new addition to the family. Of course my children wanted a puppy. The gentlemen in the puppy room talked to us and showed us dogs of all ages. I couldn't believe it when our family selected a senior chihuahua! It feels great to save a life and our experience was a positive one :)

After my 14.5 year old min-pin passed away, I decided to bring all of his belongings to the shelter to donate them. I was so distraught I could hardly speak. The kind girl behind the desk was so understanding, she knew right away what had happened.
I loved Tri-County so much that I decided to volunteer. Then one day I went into their puppy room and there he was! The best dog in the whole world, Andy. He healed my heart.

My cat, Mr. Snuggles was adopted last week from Tri County Animal Rescue. The love he has given me has changed my life. The girls in the cat room helped me select the perfect cat and I am grateful!
The girls at the front desk made the adoption process very smooth.
I am so happy I decided to stop by to look at the cats they rescued!

I went to Tri-County Animal Rescue for the first time this weekend. I've been looking for months for the purrfect furever friend, so you can imagine I've been all over to different shelters. As soon as I stepped in the lobby I was greeted by the most wonderful front desk staff. Walking around I was in complete shock over the cleanliness of the shelter. The dogs were all in clean runs, and there wasn't a sad face in the shelter. The staff was so helpful and you can tell they all genuinely cared for each animal. Long story short, I found my furry friend andwould highly recommend this shelter to anyone looking for a furry family member!!

I have adopted three dogs from Tri-County Animal Rescue! The three dogs were all rescued from high kill shelters, so Tri-County saved their lives. The entire experience was great, which is why I returned three separate times for my fur babies.

I have adopted 2 dogs from this shelter and I am always thankful for everything that they do for all their animals. Every dog is spayed.neutered and all shots and health checks performed. The office personnel are fantastic as are their volunteers. This shelter is amazing.

I have contributed much money to this organization and I am also a Board member, I have two dogs of my own and have helped to adopt over three from them.

Anything I might say will be perceived to be slanted and bias. You can read all the reviews you want but as it is said " the proof is in the pudding " so I invite you to visit the shelter on Boca Rio Road in Boca Raton , off Glades Road and ask the Executive Director who happens to be one of the two Founders for a personal tour of the facility, which includes a pet cemetery.

Find out for yourself what they are all about.

The tireless caring co founder who gave almost every minute of her life to care for the lives of canine and feline members of our society recently passed away at an age too young and who will be missed dearly by the animals she stood up for, protected and gave life to.

At Tri County Humane Society everything is about the animals and it is a NO KILL SHELTER and the employees are very special and the volunteers who make certain every day each dog is walked and at the very least gets fresh air.

It is a model shelter that needs a larger facility on its premises to honor a woman, I had too little contact with living 1,000 miles away, but is deserving of accolades she turned down in life and know must be remembered with a modern facility with an in resident VEt.

Just adopted a dog two weeks ago and received an invitation to write a review on this website. I am so happy to. This little dog has changed my life. Before meeting her at Tri County I lost my wife and didn't know what I was going to do. Now I smile, the walks bring me joy and the wags show me I can survive. Thank you Tri County for showing me how to live again.

Being a volunteer is great here. The dogs are so appreciative and the staff is friendly. I sponsor two dog runs here and get updates on each dog my sponsorship helps!

I have been volunteering with Tri County Humane Society for 2 years in their pet therapy program. Staff is always ready to help pick the perfect dog. I became a foster failure and adopted the little chihuahua I was fostering after surgery. Great Nonprofit for sure.

I've been with Tri County for over 4 years now and I find it to be a great place for the animals. The staff really care for the wellbeing of each dog and cat and Homer the pig. Everyone there has a big heart when it comes to taking care of the animals. 90% of the employees are long timers and that says a lot! The people who write negative reviews about such a caring shelter aught to be ashamed of themselves. This shelter has done so much good for the surrounding communities as well as other communities who needed emergency help. This is by far THE best shelter. Nobody is perfect but the job they do at this shelter is wonderful. Keep up the GREAT work Tri County employees. You deserve lots of credit for all your hard work and loving care!

I have gladly fostered dogs through Tri County for years now, wanting to offer any assistance I can to South Florida's only true NO KILL animal shelter. I have read some of these reviews, and can understand where they are coming from. But snap judgments seem to be abundant. The staff is diligent, and dedicated. And, just like you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, you shouldn't judge this shelter by its often maligned front desk personnel. The administrative staff is wonderful and helpful, the volunteers are reliable and courteous, and the function this humane society serves in our community is invaluable.

This is such a great shelter. Each animal is treated like a beloved pet until they can find their forever home. I spend a lot of time here, and I'm always touched by the way the employees interact with the dogs and cats. They recognize each animals strengths, and help them to realize them. In doing so, each animal presents its best face, and it helps them get adopted. I'm always happy to see a fur-son get adopted, but somewhat sad to see them leave. It's nice to remember all the friends I miss. I've been privileged to be part of the Foster program. I took grumpy Shannon the cat home for a few months and helped her get over her touch aversion and aggression. She was adopted by a sweet 4 year old. I also took home (part time) a dog who'd lived here his whole life. He was 15. Sadly, he passed away, but happily, it was at home with me, with my voice in his ears, and my hands around him. There were more than 20 dog walkers at his wake. That's the type of Shelter this is. It's a true community of animal lovers, who do what they can for the most that they can.
