I love this place. I adopted my cat Ozzy from here back in 2022 and come here often to hang out with the animals. The staff is always so helpful and allows me to play with any animal I'd like. It's a wonderful mood booster when I'm feeling down. I wish I could adopt all of them!

I adopted a kitten from this shelter through a foster. The kitten I received had fleas, really bad stomach issues, was completely underweight. I was told she was completely healthy. When she was 2 months old the foster came to my house to take the kitten to get fixed, she called me after and told me the surgery went well and she was going to pick up Strudel, she comes to the door and gives the cat back and says they mixed up the kittens and strudel didn’t actually get fixed. She was there, ALL DAY. Strudel was so SCARED, she pooped all over herself, I didn’t feel comfortable taking her back to that vet after what happened, 600 dollars later after taking her to a real vet, multiple times, she is a healthy kitten. They never called me back about getting her fixed, when I asked the foster to take her back so she could get looked at she told me I was on my own. I love my new pet, she’s my world but this was completely unprofessional, they charged me $150 for an unhealthy kitten and then never even fixed her. She’s still not fixed, I would really like someone to call me so we can come to a resolution I added a before and after picture so you can see how tiny she was (I’m not a cat expert but I know she was underweight) I Love strudel, but being lied to by the foster and or the shelter is inexcusable.

Great place to get your next pet! Go check it out or volunteer! They make it easy to sign up and help out even if you can’t adopt!

took my two former stray kittens to their respective wellness appointments and was very disappointed :( with the second kitten’s appointment, they offered no information on his approximate age, his health, they just said they’ll call if he has worms. there was little opportunity to ask questions, and we were sent home with no paperwork. not even an appointment summary, which i did get with the first kitten’s appointment. i understand they are very booked but i just felt they did not care about my cats well-being to the extent they should.

Got all my kitties spayed here. Intake was chaotic but pretty expected. Ladies at the desk were very nice and got us in even though we were a little late getting the appointments set up. Aftercare instructions were very clear and my kitties are healing up perfectly
