PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY!! I wish I could give this place 0 stars. We adopted "James" a Carmel/tan chihuahua from them on Wednesday May 13th and took him home knowing he had kennel cough and they gave us medication for him. 2x a day for 7 days. The next day, Thursday May 14th we went to Alpine View in Rockford to get the second opinion required by Winnebago. The dr that saw James (renamed Nico) was in practice for 21 y... view more

Very dishonest staff, and an instant death sentence for most animals. DO NOT BRING YOUR ANIMAL HERE! I found myself in a situation where we were no longer able to keep our cat with us. After many weeks of deliberation, with all of the local no-kill private shelters with waiting lists and no one to take him, I reluctantly brought him here. I did so after being convinced by this facility that they would make eve... view more

I, in good faith, relinquished ownership of my dog so you could find her a home. My daughter went off to college; I work full time and go to school full time and my dog needed someone who could provide more attention.

Nice people..try very hard..

They try very hard, we go down weekly and try to help where possible. We have gotten several animals from there, and they have all worked out well. They are caring, etc. For the previous is an animal shelter, and it is not a no-kill..they could not possibly be with the volume of animals that come in there..which saddens us all. It's a shame you could not keep the cat.
