I went there looking to adopt a dog and was shocked at how rude the staffer was, the one woman in the room to the far left. She would not allow me to touch the dogs. Even if that is the rule, it can be explained in a nice way, not sarcastically and rude. If finding these dogs forever homes is their priority, allowing the customers to bond with an animal is the only way. They claim its to prevent contamination but pet stores with very expensive animals allow it and have you wash your hands before and after. I can understand if a child went in asking to play with all the dogs but I am an adult clearly there to consider adopting. It's a terrible shame they allow rude people to work there as the animals are the ones that will suffer because of it.
Review to: PLEASE BEWARE, it is the responsibility of the handle(volunteer)r Don't hate the Society! I've been waiting for years to volunteer, meaning I couldn't afford- 1,150.00 per month for health Ins. Now I can and I will be there as much as I can when possible w/the training we must have as a volunteer. Looking forward to helping out where I can and possibly finding one or two older dogs, who will never find a forever home! Please don't feel so harsh, it was just one day and forgive........ I give a rating of 3, solely because I've just visited 3 times. Two to look for our forever doggie,and one to volunteer(I was rejected, didn't have health INS).
I first got to know the shelter when a friend suggested I visit them to adopt a cat..and it's been love ever since! Yes, the interview process is detailed and diligent but their first concern is the welfare of the animals to be adopted, and yes the front desk staff leaves a great deal to be desired -- but you're there folks to rescue animals -- so take a little time to visit them and watch the care they receive. The vet staff and volunteers are extraordinary! Bravo and thank you Tri-County!
We adopted a dog from Tri County about 3 weeks ago and are so incredibly happy. The staff was wonderful at Tri-County and took such good care of her and they really care about the animals. Please go to tri county if you are looking for a dog. If you are not looking for a dog please go donate so that they can continue to take care of the dogs they're trying to find homes for
