Review for Friends Of Camden Animal Shelter, Lindenwold, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I learned about AAC in 2005 when I was looking for a second dog. I saw a dog on Petfinder that was housed at AAC and went there to see the dog. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. They brought Petey out and informed me that he had been in the shelter for 5 years! Seems as though Petey was brought back twice for separation anxiety, and AAC would only adopt him out to someone who already had a dog. I was amazed that a shelter would keep a dog for 5 years! The staff did a thorough check - they required two references, my vet's name and number, etc., and they called one of the references. I thought it was terrific that they took that much time and effort to ensure that the dog was going to a good home. Subsequently, they called three times to see how things were going. I even became friendly with a board member and a staff person who had grown very close to Petey over the years, and they visited him several times. Since then, I have donated to this wonderful organization. They are saving thousands of lives.
