    I adopted two dogs from this shelter. However, I would not recommend that anyone support this organization. There are dogs in that place that have been there 4+ years because Saint Cheryl knows best and won't let them go. They have untreated health problems, severe behavioral issues and many (including one of the ones I ended up with) are unadoptable by most reasonable standards.

    Animal Friends Humane Society is run by hoarders who will make any excuse they can think of not to adopt out animals. There are more animals on the property than the limited staff are physically able to care for and they continue to collect, at the same time driving away anyone who actually tries to help. They keep animals hidden, only accepting visits by appointment and rarely answering phones or responding to messages.

    The nonprofit board is a scam, comprised of the land owner, the director, her mother, brother and a friend of the family. It is a shame the IRS hasn't suspended their tax-exempt status for this alone, nevermind the blatant neglect of the animals and mismanagement of funds.

    No doubt that those operating this organization THINK they are doing what is best for animals they love, but these people have a serious mental condition. Hoarders may have the best of intentions, but that is meaningless when animals are left to suffer for their entire lives in dirty cages without knowing the love of a family or a home.
