Review for ASPCA - American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, New York, NY, USA
I recently adopted two beautiful kittens from the ASPCA Adoption Center in Manhattan. It was an outstanding experience, and something I would recommend to anyone considering adopting an animal.
From the moment I walked into the Center, everyone worked hard to make me feel welcome. I filled out some paperwork while I waited briefly, and a very friendly volunteer (Sarah?) showed me cats. While we met the animals, she gave me care tips and advice, and was very helpful in answering all of my questions. There were tons of other volunteers playing with the animals and making sure that they were engaged, and the habitats in the center were clearly designed to make the cats feel cared for.
Finally, I met the "right" kittens. Something just clicked, and I knew that this bonded pair had to come home with me. I hadn't intended on getting a pair of kittens, but honestly could not be happier with my decision. It seemed to me that there was a cat there for every kind of cat person, and everyone made the process of finding a new friend fun, easy, and stress free.
Getting my kittens home, I did have a minor question about their eating habits during their first few meals with me. I called the ASPCA hotline, and a behaviorist (Blair) quickly got back to me and gave me outstanding advice regarding my concerns. She made sure to check in with me about the kittens in general, and made me feel welcome to call back any time for advice about any issue, big or small.
In short, if you're thinking about adopting an animal, think of the ASCPA adoption center first! Not only are they an amazing organization that does great work on behalf of animals throughout the country, their adoption center is the most friendly, helpful, and kind place that I've ever adopted an animal!
