I've lived across the US and have been to many different shelters & I wish many would have taken animal matchmaking as seriously as Sun Valley does. Upon coming in my first time, over a year ago, I couldn't help but notice how clean it was, how the animals had an air of contentment/happiness, how the people working truly cared about the animals that they were interacting with, & how much interaction the animals were getting with staff and volunteers. ALL dogs are exercised and walked daily, and the cats have a BEAUTIFUL enclosed "Catio" for their enjoyment and to keep them completely safe from outside harm (which I think is wonderful as cats DO NOT BELONG OUTSIDE). This is an incredible place, and honestly all it takes is a step inside to find that out for yourself. I would and do recommend this shelter to friends, family members, and associates. If you're not a crappy pet owner, you should have NO problem adopting from here. The adoption amounts they have monthly show they are doing something right in finding the animals their the best home possible.
