I took my cat here, and a rescued cat because they are cheap and location is convenient. I was not happy with the treatment my cat and I received in January.
And I am more upset because I brought a rescued cat to be neutered, from a friend. When I saw the cat, I thought he looked sick, and thought Humane Soc. may not neuter him if he's sick. They not only neutered him, as he tested positive for feline leukemia, they also vaccinated him, after I told the vet tech who came to me in the waiting room to ask if I wanted him tested and vaccinated, not to vaccinate him if he is sick. The woman at front desk was frazzled or acting strange because I wanted to ask questions before I had him seen/treated. She should have asked me those questions.
The cat got worse after this visit. When I addressed both the doctor and the director about them vaccinating him, they said it's policy. I emailed after about same thing twice , and got no replies.
They are high volume and do not give pets and people attentive care.
