This shelter was the first one that I've ever been in that had me leaving in tears. They are over crowded and it smells not just of animals, but of fear and death. They euthanize every week unless they get enough adoptions, usually helped out some by surrounding rescues. I traveled from State in between classes to foster a dog for a rescue. By the time I got there someone else was ready to adopt the dog I intended to foster. I ended up with another dog, not because he would be a foster, the rescue I was helping was breed specific, but because if he wasn't taken that day, he would be put down. I understand that they only have so much room and so sadly this practice has to continue, and so this is not the reason for the bad rating. This is one of the least helpful shelters, they give your pet a rabies shot and that's it. I understand it would not be economical for them to spay or neuter every animal that comes in since many may be put down, but I do think they should partner with a vet office in the area to hand out free or VERY reduced price vouchers for AT LEAST spay/neuter, preferably for a wellness exam and recommended vaccines. Doing this would decrease the number of new strays in their area and hopefully they would eventually be able to become a kill free shelter.

Anyone can claim your animals are bad and with no proof they can condemn the wrong animals ! Instead of checking the neighborhood and looking were the dogs did the damage to other animal and going after a child. They would rather say it was my animals even though they are fenced in and Dog Officer came out and walked the fence line and my dogs did not go after her or try to get out... And than they tell me my Dog was running around two weeks later and I was here all day with animals. I believe that Animal control should be investigated.. I even invited Dog Officer Steve to come look at fence and he said there is nothing he can do..
Very helpful and kind at this shelter.
