I have been to a LOT of shelters looking for the best dog for my family, and this is one is by far the WORST. The smell will make you sick, both inside and out. The entire place STINKS! Normally it's just where the animals are kept, but this place I couldn't even get past the lobby to look at the cats! The dogs are in horrible conditions, as many as five large dogs to a smaller than average kennel! They barely have room to move! Several had mange, growths, lesions. And all look like fresh wounds. Sadly some of the dogs fight for food, a lot had ribs showing, and one was covered in blood from a neck wound. Most don't have bowls, not even for water, and their food mixes with the feces from UNCLEAN conditions. AND They want $125 for a dog! I hope they get shut down!!!

This is definately the place to look for a new friend/pet for the family. There are so many to choose from. The staff will help you look for anything specific that you are looking for if they don't have it. They are very good about replacing the animal if it was to die within a certain time frame. I have adopted several pets from this shelter and will continue to look for future pets there.

My first impression when entering is turn around and RUN !!
This is a very difficult place to visit, especially if you like animals. The staff (which is definately shorthanded) can not supply the attention that these animals need. The smell is overwhelming, especially with it being so overcrowded and hot. I don't mean to sound negative, there is only so much that one or two people can do. The animals are provided for and not neglected, they just need a little TLC. This is the best place to adopt an animal. Be prepared to take one home with you because it will break your heart to leave!!!
