After searching this site for their office hours I had to make an account after ready what this "Penny" person said. I've owned many dogs, a couple from Pensacola Animal Shelter. It used to be you adopted a dog for ~50USD, I adopted "Tooty" the owner relinquished Shetland sheep dog when this fee was in place. She was lucky, had an owner who trained her and brought her in looking decent. Tooty was one of the best dogs I've ever owned. As of recent the fee has increased to just under 100USD (A little cheaper for 3+ years). With the increased fee you now get vaccination (minus rabies), spay/neuter, routine veterinary checks for health risks, and verification of a "non-aggressive" breed. The kennels are warmed, "non-adoptables" are hidden from vision, the staff love their jobs and if you run into one having a bad day there are many other you can request. This is a second chance for some abused animals and it takes longer than a week to undo the damage some owners do unto their animals. A few months ago we adopted Buddha from there, and he was exactly what you described as "sickly", he was down to the bones. We asked about his past and he had been removed from the streets, it was not their fault he looked the way he did. Casting a negative review for a business establishment because you took offense to what things looked like without understanding where your feet were standing makes a good business look bad. I want people to know what you saw may have been so, but some of those dogs are in recovery and it doesn't matter if you scrub a sick dogs kennel every half an hour it's still going to use the restroom.

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.
