I've never been more disgusted in my life. my neighbor leaves their dog out in the 90 degree heat for hours with it wailing and panting and scratching at the door trying to get in. I called to see what I could do and the lady said there is nothing they can do and as long as there's some sort of shade that's considered shelter. when has it ever been "humane" to leave a dog out in the heat for this long? so now I have to sit and listen to the poor dog bark and wail from being overheated but apparently it's okay because they have minimal shade from a tree.
OKAY ME AND MY DAUGHTER WENT DOWN TO LOOK TO SEE IF MY PITTBULL DOZZER WAS FOUND ..WHILE THERE SHE FOUND A DOG...A GERMAN SHEPARD TYPE LOOKING DOG SLASH PITT....SO WE TOOK THE DOG HOME AND BECAUSE WE WERE FOSTERING KIDS WE WERE TOLD WE WERE NOT ABLE TO KEEP "GYPSY" ..BECAUSE THE PITTBULL ON THE PAPERS WE WERE GIVEN...I MYSELF OWN 3 PITTS AND I FELT LIKE THERE WAS NO WAY IT HAD PITT IN HER SO WE DECIDED TO GET THE DNA TESTING DONE AND WE DISCOVERED THERE WAS NO PITT ..BUT BOXER BULLDOG ..(DUH) SO THEN WE TOOK THE DNA PAPERS TO THE HUMANE SOCIETY AND THEY DID NOT WANT TO CHANGE THE PAPERS EVEN THOUGH IT WAS THERE F.....

I CANNOT believe the previous reviews. Obviously it is because both of them didn't actually get to be IN the building and BE a consumer.
This facility is unbelievably fantastic (and I went to the old facility a few times). Open areas, nice sized pens, one-on-one excercize, A/C (I remember the old swamp coolers), heat, calming music in the kennels.
If there is one thing that I would highly recommend is their web site. Amazing! A wealth of information. I picked six dogs to view and did. The staff was beyond helpful! I chose an eight year-old dog who had been there two months. She was dropped off by the former owners because she was ""too much trouble"" and they couldn't handle it. This is the EASIEST dog I have ever had. Of course, the former owners turned her in when she was pregnant. In eight years she had never seen a veterinarian. So ask to see the form and don't believe it all!
The Humane Society staff and volunteers were nice at every turn, every person that I met. Helpful, answered questions, were upbeat, attentive and even gave me a free bag of Science Diet, all for less that $50.00. Don't forget the spaying, shots, new owner packet, free vet visit, registration and of course, the wonderful dog that is now my shadow!
UPDATE - I called the Humane Society and left a message that I lost her paperwork in my move and was going to board her in three days... can they look up by my name and her license number the information and fax it or mail it? A staff member immediately called me back and had my dogs information RIGHT in FRONT of her as we spoke. She said she could fax it now or mail it tomorrow morning and the veterinarian there would sign off on it. THEN she asked me how my dog was? Now that is customer service and concerned, responsible folks. I'd give them six stars if I could.
I have no idea what these people's problems are that left the previous ratings but I bet there's a bigger story than what's read here.

We needed help turning our cats in somewhere so they can find loving home we get halfway there all the way from mesa and call in to set up dropping of our loving cats and we are rudely told that they close at 4:30 which is not what their page says... their surrender page specifically says that they close at 5 pm!!! and the lady i talked with on the phone! when people are at their downest in life they dont need people like that bringing them down further!! Of all businesses I have ever done business with! talk about knocking a person down when there already down!! And their page should be updated.. this is a mess that could've been avoided if specific information had been posted!

I was denied employment because of tattoos on my hands written in spanish! not only is this discrimination, but it's racism! I thought this organization was to help the animals and speak for the ones who can't! Why should my character matter?? Couldn't be anything other than one persons personal opinion. I think that if you are thinking about going to this place, you should look elsewhere. Plenty of other adoption agencies don't discriminate!
