I had a very positive experience with Sun Valley Animal Shelter. Initially, my boyfriend and I tried to adopt a dog named "Jack". After being interviewed by one of the staff members, they realized Jack might not be the best fit since Jack wasn't too fond of small children or other dogs and my boyfriend and I plan on having children. I understand some of the reviewer's frustration at not being able to adopt a pet, but I honestly believe the staff members ensure all their animals are just going to good homes. They don't want to have pets being mistreated or constantly being brought back to the shelter.
After discussing that Jack might not be a good fit, the staff member was very friendly and recommended other possible dogs. We were able to adopt a different dog and we have been very happy with the new addition to our family!
