In the last year I have not only adopted two animals from the humane society, I have also started volunteering as well. While I had assumed it to be one of those depressing shelters filled with sad animals in squalid, overcrowded cages, until being inevitably euthanized, I was wrong. The staff lives and breathes animals. They love what they do and the animals are very well cared for. The best part is the turn over rate. On top of being a "no kill" shelter the adoption rate is well over 70% and when they held a free adoption weekend a few moths ago it was an amazing event. Out of the 87 cats, dogs, and kittens, every last one was adopted. That is every animal they had. Every single one. PETA shelters euthanize over 90% of the animals they take in while the humane society finds homes for most of theirs. They continue to care for the am male after they find homes by offering food assistance, free litter, vaccination clinics, lend out have a heart traps, and offer veterinary services to pet lovers with financial difficulties. They also spay and nueter each animal they adopt out to prevent overpopulation. I am lucky to volunteer there and will never get a pet anywhere else.
