This is the only humane society that I have ever been able to go into without crying. The place is wonderful and the staff is great. I wish we could've adopted more cats but we sure got a winner on getting Archie. The place is clean, they take time with you and allow you to spend time with the animal before you decide. I honestly cannot find one negative thing to say and when the time comes to get another, we will return.

I had my first experience at a shelter in the Midwest and I am planning on going back today to adopt a pet. The staff were courteous, the place was clean, the animals were darling and tugged at my heartstrings. My group and I were afforded the opportunity to sit in a private room with each of our possible furries to see if there was a "connection". We also had the opportunity to go into a specialized viewing room and the establishment was clean and all the animals appeared well cared for.
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.
