Looking for my cat who might have been killed by my new neighbors dog.
Going to the shelter and see such beautiful pets.
Great work from the volunteers who work hard to clean the cages and adopt out the lovely pets.
Ann, Our adoptable animals do not have a time limit. As long as our animals stay happy and healthy, they will remain in adoption until they are adopted or pulled by a non-profit rescue. Thank you for your interest in our shelter and we are very sorry to hear about your cat. I, in good faith, relinquished ownership of my dog so you could find her a home. I gave you 18 months of vet records, her items from home so she would feel safe and secure, and I drove away crying but knowing my dog needed a home where she could get attention. She loved to go for walks and play fetch for hours, but I couldn't give this to her anymore. AND, WCAS, YOU KILLED MY DOG AND PUT HER TO SLEEP IN A MATTER OF HOURS AND NEVER EVEN CALLED AND GAVE ME A CHANCE TO GET HER BACK. When I dropped her off, you told me I was required by law to relinquish her to you rather than find her a home myself. You, the front desk staff and office manager, and the vet (see website) should be ashamed of yourselves.

Nice people..try very hard..

They try very hard, we go down weekly and try to help where possible. We have gotten several animals from there, and they have all worked out well. They are caring, etc. For the previous is an animal shelter, and it is not a no-kill..they could not possibly be with the volume of animals that come in there..which saddens us all. It's a shame you could not keep the cat.
