I fell in love with one of their dogs on line. When I went to adopt her, they immediately let us meet and hold the dog so we could get to know each other. It was after we fell in love with her that they told us we had to bring our other dogs to meet her. But they are 1800 miles away because we are from Louisiana. They said we could not adopt the dog. When I suggested that they should ask questions and mention that stipulation before they let someone fall in love with the animal, thesnide response was, "I will bring it up at the next staff meeting."

My friend went into PAWS looking for a second dog. She ended up finding one she liked and put a $10 hold on him so she could bring her current dog over to meet him (PAWS policy). She came back the next day with her dog and the one of the PAWS employees told her that she was not able to get the dog that she put a hold on. They had sent her a $10 check in the mail. Another one of the employees had wanted the dog for herself... needless to say the employees are rude and disrespectful. We will not be going back to PAWS anytime soon. Would give 0 stars but you have to select at least 1.

We felt profiled and discriminated against by PAWS. I was quickly looked up and down by the manager and told that she would not adopt a dog to me because of my child. The dog was listed as being good with kids. Another staff person yelled at me and asked if it was just me and my child. When I replied yes she rolled her eyes at me and my manager won't adopt this dog to you. I will never adopt a dog from this shelter. The cat house was good all around including the staff. The only reason they received 1 star.
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.
