My name is Rochelle Jacks, Patrick Hunt and I have 3 kids together and we have started volunteering at the animal shelter. right now we have a cute small black puppy with browneyebrows, he is part chihuahua and I am not sure what.

This shelter needs a lot of improvement. The policies are very outdated and inconsistent.

They don't maintain a website, and their Petfinder page is usually out of date and rarely has nice photographs of the adoptable animals (even though there are photographers in the community who volunteer to take them).

They keep terrible hours that make it difficult for people to communicate with them, or to come see animals for adoption.
All in all, this shelter needs to update it's policies and get more organized if they want to stop euthanizing so many animals every year.view less
