We have adopted three kittens from the Anna Shelter, two 3 years ago and one this year. Each time has been a good experience. I would not have written this review, but I read the previous one and felt it needed a rebuttal. First, the family who adopts a pet is NOT a customer and should not expect to be treated as one. The shelter is very careful to represent the needs of the animals, not the needs of the humans. If the staff seems hyper-vigilant when considering an adoption it is because they should be. Many of the animals have not had good homes in the past and the staff will not allow them to be adopted until they are sure they will go to good homes. When there is a doubt, the decision must be on the side of caution, for the animal's benefit. The previous poster could be a wonderful person and may have made a great home for the kitten, but unless the staff was certain of that, they needed to not allow the cat to be adopted. Perhaps the landlord was less positive when called than let on. Perhaps the woman seemed a little ill-prepared for having a cat. I don't know. But based on my experience and my observations of the Anna Shelter I choose to trust their decision.

These people are amazing! They genuinely care about animals and take their forever family search seriously. I love that Anna shelter won't "sell" these little sweethearts to anyone who walks in with a wallet. We need more places like this and more people like them. We donate whenever we are able.
We appreciate all the work that goes into caring for the animals. The Humane Society is always friendly and clean.
