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!



My elderly mother recently adopted a puppy from this facility and was charged a $350.00 fee. She soon realized that the puppy had behavioral problems and decided she was unable to care for him. He had bitten her multiple times causing severe puncture wounds to both of her hands. After two days she returned the puppy to the shelter. Despite returning him immediately, the shelter refused to issue her a refund. The puppy is now back on the website. Buyer beware!



We were very impressed with the facility and the staff. There was quite a bit of paper work and a lengthy interview, but it was understandable. We had to go home and get our existing elderly dog to see if she would accept the two wonderful schnauzers we were able to adopt. They are amazing dogs and appear to have been well cared for.



If I could give this "shelter aka pet store" zero stars, I would. Here's why: went there looking for a cat. They won't let you in to see the kittens without first filling out a ridiculous app. So we filled it out, go in to meet the kittens. There were two Siamese MIX kittens we were going to "adopt aka buy" until the lady said that those two kittens were $100 more than the others because their Siamese. Are you kidding, right? So how are these individuals not a pet store? If I wanted to buy a cat, I would have looked on Craigslist however, we were looking to ADOPT. When I called the manager she was just as awful as every other person that works there. HIGHLY RECOMMEND TAKING YOUR INTEREST ELSE WHERE TO SAVE LIVES! These people are money hungry and are NOT in it for the best interest of the animals because if they were, they would have adopted out those two kittens for the same price as all the other kittens. PLEASE BOYCOTT!!!!!




I honestly think they want to keep those poor babies forever! My husband and I wanted to adopt the cutest kitten with the best personality. After finding out that we are moving into a house with a doggy door, they rejected us saying the cat can escape and left. SO RUDE. I understand that the kitty can escape that's why they build doggy doors with a lock you idiot! We trained our puppy by ringing a bell on the door to go outside because we live in an apartment. But no its not good enough.




I feel so bad for all the babies in there! They will never know what a loving family is!



We have taken beautiful kitties here before,but they would not take them in and were very rude.

I honestly was appalled and would never go there again. They are there to help the animals,but did nothing to help us place the animal somewhere else and were very unfriendly.

So if you are looking to take an animal you find here,forget it.


Adopted Cayenne

We just want to thank the Sun Valley Animal Shelter for letting us adopted our little Chorkie. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The interview was kind of intimidating at first but then realized they have to be as they are the keepers of these abandoned animals and take there jobs very seriously... We love our little ( Cody ) aka Cayenne and want to thank the girl that fought for us to get him. As she knows how much we wanted him and some things were a little complicated in our situation but she came through for us and now we are a HAPPY family again as we had lost our little Chihuahua of 8 1/2 years just 3 weeks earlier. I see all these bad reviews and want to tell you to go and check out the shelter yourself and see how nice and caring the staff are. We will be forever grateful to them for making our family whole again.

I am a volunteer at Sun Valley Animal Shelter and starting my sixth year. The staff at this shelter works hard to make sure the animals are well cared for. They are very thorough when they do adoptions. Their goal is that this will be a forever home for the animal.

They always need more volunteers. Think about coming to the next orientation. You can make a difference in an animals life.


Very rude and didn't even talk to us

They slammed the door and said were closed didn't even bother to talk to us. Don't go here.



I agree with the majority! I found the people at sun valley animal shelter very biased! and opinionated! I was turned down because I might build a pool and until I showed a fence around the pool I might build it was a NO! What right do these councilors have to turn away good people who will care and love these pets when there sitting in cages some times for years?? Those councilors are not qualified to review the public!! Some one should put them in a cage!! There not helping those animals as they claim!! I agree there should be some one to check and make sure the animal is going to a safe home,BUT, these people are going way to far with it!! Its my opinion that SVAS should rescue ONLY! and not advertise adoption if they claim there only thought is for the pets, They should keep them!! And stop humiliating the public! They should take there attitudes and stick them where the sun don't shine!! As for me I will find a dog to adopt somewhere else and I will love it and care for it whether they think I'm dog worthy or not doesn't bother me! I know I am! I also know Ill never go to SVAS againAnd I will encourage everyone I know not to go there! There are far to many other shelters with intelligent people who won't judge me for thinking about a pool!
