I called seeking help and spoke to the most hateful representative. I did not get any help or direction, and felt sorry that I called and bothered them.

Don't bother calling. The receptionist has a bad attitude as well as bad customer service. She needs to be fired.

These incredible people saved a old Shar-Pei that the average shelter would have killed almost immediately -- and then found a way for her to get to us in Florida where she has had a great couple of years! Shelly and her staff totally rock ♥

I made a call asking if they happen to have a telephone number to the humane society. The lady said no and i said could i ask her if... and i was cut off by her stating " can you hurry , i got to do something!" very rude. How do you expect anyone to volunteer or adopt any pets with people who have ugly attitudes like that. No i will not be dealing with this shelter and will not advise anyone else to do so either. How are the pets treated?????

We took our cat here as a last ditch effort because we could no longer giver her the home she deserves. The staff was very rude and assumed that we abused her. We were scolded for not having her spayed. She assumed that we were bringing her into the shelter because she was pregnant, but we did not even know she was. She got out by accident one day while we were gone and that is how she ended up. Our cat is very loved and the staff assumed that we just wanted to discard her. In the end, we decided it was best for her to stay with us than to give her to a staff that was rude and cruel. We felt that if she acted in that manner towards us, she would to the animals as well. She made us out to be terrible people for wanting the best for our cat that we could not give her. If it were possible I wouldn't even give this any stars.

These people run a lovely shelter ! They placed two small dogs for me within a day and alleviated so much stress after a family member died. They are truly dedicated to their good work and it shows!
Tips & Advices
Most city and county shelters offer affordable spay/neuter services. SPCA and Humane Society shelters also are known for their low-cost spay/neuter programs.
Shelters typically offer spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchipping and some essential medical treatment (deworming, mange treatment) to animals being adopted from the shelter. For other veterinary services, you will need to find a vet.
No-kill and low-kill shelters will state it in their online profile and other official materials. They will usually explain what their process/policy is for looking after the animals in their care. These are also known as “limited admission” shelters because they are usually at full capacity most or all of the time. Also, they often work with rescue organizations or county Animal Services authorities to accommodate animals living in inhumane conditions, abandoned or injured animals.
Anyone can bring a lost animal to a county or municipal shelter. However, private shelters affiliated with rescues often will not accept animals, whether lost or surrendered by owners. Shelters with low-kill policies often have a limited admission capability.
Adopting an adult dog from a county or city shelter usually costs $75-$100. Young adult purebreds and puppies often have a higher adoption fee.  The fee to adopt a cat is usually about $50– sometimes with discounts if one new owner adopts two cats. The adoption fee usually covers the cost of spay/neuter surgery and essential vaccinations.
