Many people don't want to visit an animal shelter as it either makes them sad or it smells really bad. When you first walk into the lobby area you know that this shelter is a wonderful place. The staff is friendly, the volunteers are actively working with the animals, and the animals are well loved and taken care of. I adopted a little chi mix last year and she is the love of my life. The organization is out in the community thorugh off site adoption events and fundraisers. Sherrie's Food Bank provides food for community members who are having financial difficulty feeding their animals and don't want to surrender them. Kudos to HSSCG. I was so impressed with the operations of the organization I am now a part time employee.
I've worked with the Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia for the past couple of years and have seen first hand what a wonderful humane society it is. Everyone from the staff to the volunteers work hard to help bring homeless animals into the facility, provide them with excellent medical care, and find them wonderful new homes. They also work hard to educate the community on animal welfare and the importance of spay and neuter to help reduce the number of unwanted, homeless animals.
I had no intentions of adopting a furry friend but after meeting Charlie, we instantly fell in love. The staff gave us all the time we needed to bond and ensure Charlie was right for us. We hadn't had a pet in over 12 years so their knowledge and expertise prepared us for the transition in our home. The center is clean, the staff is very nice, and they get to know their furry friends to assist patrons with good decisions. I am a fan of HSSCG!
I was promised an adoption, turns out 2 volunteers promised at same time. Poor attitude of volunteer and miscommunication, volunteer adopted to other party across the country. Adoptive pet is now put through additional stress by being adopted to another much farther away. Now the pet will undergo travel stress unnecessarily. Volunteers not thinking about the pet, just thinking of the publicity in sending the pet across the country! I give poor review and do not recommend.
WOW! What an AMAZING Organization. The staff goes ABOVE AND BEYOND to make sure the Animals are all kept in a clean and happy environment. I recommend this place to rescue a dog or cat to everyone. There are so many great things about it. The Staff, Cleanliness and the whole staff's love for animals. They really care about each and every animal there. I thank them every time I go there for the great work they do and for their love and dedication to the animals. We have adopted 3 animals from here and are always sending people there to adopt and new "furrever" friend.
I have two dogs from the Coastal Georgia Humane Society. One I got as a puppy and one was a year and half when I adopted them. They are great dogs and a joy to my life. We go to the beach every day.
The CGHS is a wonderful facility filled with get employees and volunteers.
I adopted a dog (male Great Dane) from the Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia, Inc. and was overwhelmed with the process that they employ. The employees and volunteers were wonderful and extremely helpful. The dog that I adopted had been previously adopted and returned more than once from what I was told. The dogs issues were-
1. The dog didn't get along with other dogs in the household and
2. In one case the dog was adopted one day then left alone the next day. He apparently was stressed and destroyed some furniture thus he was returned
As you can see I was briefed fully on the issues regarding this dog. I happened to have my female Great Dane with me the day I saw this male Great Dane that was up for adoption. The employees and volunteers at the Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia, Inc. arranged for a safe introduction of the two dogs. They didn't kill each other and the employees and volunteers were very surprised even ecstatic because of his past problem with other dogs. I assured the employees and volunteers that the stress and furniture destruction issue wasn't a problem for me since I am retired and would be home the majority of the time.
Consequently I adopted the male Great Dane (Diesel) and he and my female Great Dane (Ally) are best buddies. I was thoroughly impressed with the caring attitude of the employees and volunteers and their extraordinary efforts to assure a compatible adoption. Diesel, Ally and I visit everyone at the Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia, Inc. every once in awhile to let them see how their former resident is getting along and for him to visit with his people friends that work at the Society. He loves them very much and is always so happy to see them. They really took great care of him while he was in residence there.
The people are what make any organization and the Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia, Inc. has the best- most caring, compassionate, concerned and hard working people. They love the animals and really enjoy their work. They even love the clients or potential clients. They are an amazing group!
Furthermore, I've had both my dogs to excellent training sponsored by the Society. I also visit their pet store for various items I want for my dogs, e.g.: collars, leashes, toys, etc. They really have an excellent all around facility to go along with the superb people that work there.
We went to the Humane Society looking for a companion for a kitten we had. When we entered the faciity, we immediately noticed how clean it was. We were shown around and allowed to spend time with the cats. The cats/kittens had clean litter boxes, water and food. They appeared happy and healthy.
After hearing the story of the black and white kitten, who was by himself, I immediately decided to take him home. Popeye had been in the medical ward, after having been attacked by a bird of prey. Due to the attack, he lost an eye. He seemed to need a loving home more than the others at the time. We took him home that day! He gets along with our other animals, and he is left "in charge" of the house when we are not home! He is the sweetest, most loving baby! The Humane Society took subperb care of Popeye from the time of his injury until we adopted him. I'm grateful he made his way to them and received the care he got. The staff made the adoption process easy. I must say, they made me feel a little bad for taking Popeye away from them. But I can assure the staff, he is very much loved and happy! Our experience was and remains awesome! Popeye's mom
I had a wonderful experience at the Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia! There I found an adorable kitten who was too young to stay at the facility so I became his temporary foster parent. I then became what they call a "failed foster" because I had to adopt the little guy. He is now a joyous part of my family. Throughout the process the staff was incredibly helpful, especially the medical staff! Everyone was very knowledgable and happy to answer any questions I had on a variety of subjects from the very basic to all of my worried "what-ifs"!
I have rescued a number of feral and/or abandoned pets since moving to this area. Being very poor & on a very tight budget, I was looking for a low-cost spay-neuter facility & found these wonderful people ! I have never seen such a dedicated loving group of vets & volunteers. One male cat whom I had nick-named 'Edward Scissorhands' & warned the nice ladies about him when I dropped him off for his neutering. When I picked him up they told me I HAD to re-name him, that he was the sweetest most loving boy they had ever met ! Well, they were right of course, and 'Boo-Bear' is a very important part of my family now. I refer everyone I know to them. They are not only the lowest cost facility in the area, but the most loving. And now with their new state-of-the-art facility, they are right up there with the classiest vets in the area. Five stars is not enough to explain how wonderful this place really is. AND they are a NO-kill shelter as well.
