We just went to The House of News with the intent of adopting two cats and making a donation. However, my husband and I brought our dog (who has been raised with our cats, is exceptionally well behaved, and a fully trained purebred husky). My husband waited outside with our dog while I went in to look at the cats and ask for an application; however, the woman behind the desk apparently didn't have the sense to realize that I owned the dog that was sitting outside, not making the least bit of trouble or even acknowledging all of the cats in the windows. This woman proceeds to make condescending, vicious, and absolutely RUDE and UNPROFESSIONAL remarks about my husband and our dog being outside, loudly enough for everyone inside to hear her. I calmly closed the cage I had been looking in, walked out, and will now make sure everyone knows how hateful and unprofessional this place is. How pathetic. This woman needs to seek some professional help for her malicious and attention-seeking behavior. I should know - I'm a psychiatric nurse.
Do yourself a favor and adopt from someone who actually cares about animals. This woman clearly doesn't; it appears from other reviews that she'd rather let these poor cats rot in cages than go to good homes. So sorry to Smokey and Bentley; I couldn't bear to be in the presence of that evil woman any longer than 2 minutes, even if it does mean that you two precious babies have to stay in her clutches.
