It is sad for me to see all th...

It is sad for me to see all the poor reviews of ADL. Of course, people are much more likely to write a review when they are mad, and unfortunately the hundreds & hundreds of stories of great experiences at ADL go unheard. I have been a volunteer at ADL since earlier this year and I go for 2-3 hours a week. I have been involved with many different shelters & rescues throughout the years, and ADL is one of... view more

Staff hates people, hates animals too

This place absolutely sucks. Not the animals, the people. My fiance and I went to adopt a kitten, and had so many choices to choose from. We spent nearly an hour in the three houses that they had dedicated to kittens alone. In fact, they had SO many kittens, they were running a ""buy one get one free sale"" on them as if they were shoes or something. We decided to get two and headed to the adoption center to fill out... view more

Loving Animal Environment with Great People

I had a wonderful experience adopting my pet from the ADL. I began as a foster for an animal that endured medical neglect which resulted in blindness and infection. When my pet ""Max"" (2month old Yorkie-Poo) was surrendered to the shelter, the medical staff did everything in their power to try to save the eye (this is why he needed to be fostered).\r \r I of course grew to love him and not want to ever part so I d... view more

Dissapointing Experience

Disappointing Experience, We called about a dog we found online in the morning and explained we had to drive three hours. When we got there she and her brother had been adopted out 1 hour prior to us getting there. Then we found a second dog they had on ""hold"" for someone else (they didn't offer this to us when we called). They have a one day hold policy so we asked if they weren't back by the end of the day if we ... view more

Finding the Perfect Forever Home

I found a dog dumped in my neighborhood and these wonderful people found her a forever home in just 6 days. I will be forever grateful! And knowing that they screen potential owners carefully makes me confident that this sweet dog will have a home where she will be loved, cared for and will thrive. THANK YOU ADL! You are the BEST.

A Great Shelter

I think it is a shame that this animal shelter has a very poor rating. The dogs and cats there are wonderful and loving ... and whatever dog you end up with will be your best friend for life. I would be heartbroken if I thought that the reviews of this place would prevent anyone from going there. It is actually a really great place. The people there love and care about those dogs ... and know them all by name and ... view more

Poorly managed & run

We came into adopt a dog on Saturday. They said they would hold her until 4:30 that day. When we came back they let someone else adopt her. We spoke to the "manager" which was also the person that "helped" us w/the adoption & she was not compassionate, stated a fake "sorry" to our children & was unprofessional & uncaring. Our children have collected newspaper, food, litter &a... view more

Some pespective

After reading several negative reviews, I feel I must comment. I have been to ADL facility twice, spoken to them on the phone a few times, and seen them at fundraiser/community awareness events. My friend adopted 2 cats from them recently w/o problems. Positive sides are that the adoption fees are the lowest around, it is a no-kill shelter, it is a non profit organization and it is run largely by volunteers who are t... view more

very disappointed

My husband and I were at the Animal Defense League today which was Saturday Sept. 5th we found a beautiful puppy name Luna that we wanted to adopt we filled out the Application and waited to hear that we were not qualified to adopt Luna. Which we were in disbelieve when we have 3 other dogs that we love so much. The problem was that my chain Link fence was not tall enough for the puppy and we were going to keep her... view more
