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.

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.
