Review for Tri County Humane Society, Boca Raton, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

If it ain't broke ... . Oh, wait, I would increase the number of people who donate.
