I have adopted a cat and a dog thorough NEAS and I have never had an issue. On their website they clearly state their adoption requirements and tell you to show up a few hours before closing to adopt. Everyone has been pleasant to me there. Most people don't understand that there are a lot of volunteers that work there, so you may get conflicting info b/c that's not their full time job. You have to understand that you can't always just PICK what animal you want to adopt, they have to see if you and your family and lifestyle would be a good match. It sounds like some of these reviewers are upset that they didn't get what they wanted at that instant. Wouldn't you rather them be through about animal adoptions? You wouldn't just hand over your pet to just anyone to pet-sit, would you? They have to get to know you and see how you interact with the animal before they give it to you for the rest of their lives. Both of my animals are so lovable and I can't imagine my life without them. I donate to NEAS regularly because they help so many animals and save them from being killed. I wish people could see the big picture and realize it just not about you.

I think these negative reviews are all a case of only the upset people write reviews. We have adopted 3 different dogs through NEAS on three different occasions and have always had great experiences there. These people are so nice, I cannot believe any of these reviews. Seriously! NEAS does great work, keeps an immaculate kennel, saves so many lives, and truly cares.Juli L
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.
