As a longtime FORMER volunteer, let me say this isn't a place you want to see any animal have to stay. It's backward, poorly managed, with horrible animal care and dysfunctional leadership -- poor communication, lots of conflicts, little respect for animal care staff. Strays get stuck in cages for over a week with no walks. Once they're out of strays, they still often don't get walks because staff don't have time and there aren't enough volunteers. Animals sit in their waste all day because staff can't keep up. Animals get lost in the "system" (some kittens, forgotten in a back room, recently died there from neglect), and animal care staff, most of who are devoted to the animals, are seriously overworked and underpaid. They have no professional trainers and don't train dogs or work on behavior issues. The percentage of animals that make it out alive is only in the 60% range. They're better than they were before in their old place (basically a killing machine) but have a looong way to go to become a HUMANE shelter -- for the workers and the animals.
Lies Lies Lies this is the only thing they do I've went there time and time again...... The ppl who work there need to be thrown on the street.... And have real ppl who care and act like they care about there animals.... They don't even call if something happens to an animal you want to adopt.... Even if you have the papers filled out!
