I volunteer at this animal shelter and it may smell bad but they do their best to make it smell better it smells like any other animal shelter there is. The animals are so well cared for but most of the time they don't have time because of the costumers and about two people really work there. You will not know the place as well as I do unless you work or volunteer there.
I went to the shelter in early June and we ended up adopting a sweet mixed pup. The people were patient with my indecision (it was 4:30 on a Friday and I am sure they were ready to go home). She was healthy and well cared for. You can tell they played with her because every time she saw a worker her tail wagged. The place had a smell, like most shelters I have visited. I think it was the 'stuff' they use to try to keep it clean. We brought 'Izzy' home, bathed her to wash off the shelter smell, renamed her and she has adapted to our household and gets along great with her 70 pound 'sister'. I drove over an hour to get this pup after seeing her picture on line and I would check there again. Izzy's mom

I adopted a puppy from this shelter and was told that I had to wait 6 days to take my puppy home because she had to be fixed first. Upon picking up my puppy from the vet she was covered in dry fecies and was evident they hadn't bathed her which was even worse because we could not bath her for 5 days due to surgery. After getting her home, we found out she had a bad case of Kennel Cough that had went untreated. So at this point my dog that is already at home has been exposed. when I called the shelter the girl told me that they had had a bad case of kennel cough a week before and they had never made us aware at the time of adoption. The girls that were running the facility when I was there were snotty and rude. There was no compassion or friendliness towards myself or my 4 year old daughter. If this is how they treat other human beings I would hate to see how they treat these animals behind closed doors.
