  • This charity has a big presence in my hometown, and I think they do pretty good work placing animals and getting work done
  • Animals that make it into the shelter are lucky, but what I don't like about Angels for Animals is that they are not a no-kill shelter
  • It's a really hard fact to deal with for me because I don't think any animal should be put down due to what humans have turned it into, but you are still helping animals if you adopt from this shelter
  • My only problem with this beautiful building is that I sometimes wonder why they would put so much money into a building so beautiful and not build something a bit less luxurious with more room to save more animals
  • They also lend traps and rent halls to raise money for their organization, so if you are looking for a hall to throw a party, it's a nice facility to consider because you will know your money is going to more than profiting individuals

      This charity has a big presence in my hometown, and I think they do pretty good work placing animals and getting work done. Although I’m sometimes unhappy with how they spend their money, it’s a pretty reputable charity if you’re interested in donating, a fun place to volunteer, and they make a difference in the lives of a lot of animals.

      This animal shelter has a lot of resources and are able to house a lot of cats and dogs until they are adopted. The animals that they advertise as being adoptable really are good animals, and they have all gone through evaluations to make sure they aren’t aggressive towards people or other animals. There may be some that are a bit “difficult” or better without kids/other dogs/cats/etc., but their animals are all very adoptable. They put a lot of effort into getting these animals adopted, too, with a small army of volunteers doing a ton of stuff for adoptions from fostering animals (to socialize them) to coming in and cleaning up after them and keeping the shelter running smoothly. I think the best part about this shelter is how well these animals are kept and taken care of and how much the shelter really does to get them adopted.

      Animals that make it into the shelter are lucky, but what I don’t like about Angels for Animals is that they are not a no-kill shelter. They


      really do a lot for adoptable animals, but animals with behavioral problems that they deem beyond rehabilitation are often euthanized. This is also true of animals with diseases that will eventually be fatal. It’s a really hard fact to deal with for me because I don’t think any animal should be put down due to what humans have turned it into, but you are still helping animals if you adopt from this shelter. How? Because every animal that is fostered and/or in the actual shelter is up for adoption and will never ever be euthanized. They had one dog there for two years when I was volunteering there, and every day, he got food, water, play time and people to visit him and love him. Living in a shelter isn’t ideal, but they take really great care of all their animals and adopting from this place means one more animal makes it up to the shelter where they will never ever face euthanization.

      The main building where the animals are kept is absolutely fantastic - grooming facilities, vets on staff, big, clean and awesome. I loved volunteering there because it was kind of like going to a really great kennel. The employees and other volunteers are also really careful to make note of what dogs like each other so they get play time with animals that they like playing with. My only problem with this beautiful ...


      • building is that I sometimes wonder why they would put so much money into a building so beautiful and not build something a bit less luxurious with more room to save more animals. I don’t know if the building was donated to them as it is or what, but I think for how beautiful it is, it must have cost a lot and I wish it had gone to more lifesaving efforts than making a luxurious hall.

        The people I’ve met who work for Angels are all pretty great. They genuinely want to help animals, and they are good with the public. When I volunteered there, I got to do adoptions which meant I interviewed people and talked to them about their lifestyle, what they were looking for, etc. If you are looking to adopt from Angels, don’t feel bad if you get turned down for a certain dog. Ask them questions about why and if they think there’s a better match for you. This shelter cares a lot about its dogs, so it’s not uncommon for them to turn down potential adopters who don’t meet the needs of certain dogs. If you’ve never had a dog, they’ll be wary to give you a puppy. If you live in an apartment, they probably won’t adopt a huge or active dog to you. It’s for your own good because the dog will drive you crazy if your

        lives are incompatible. I recommend everyone really talk to the volunteers and employees there about what they want because the people there really know the dogs well and want to find the perfect match.

        In addition to animal adoption, the shelter does a lot to educate the public about animal welfare and how to treat animals. They visit classrooms, go to nursing homes and generally try to get the word out there to spay and neuter animals and adopt the ones that are already here before breeding new ones. They offer spay and neuter services at the facility, and they have a low-cost feral spay program that covers spaying a mother feral cat and any of her kittens as a package deal. They also lend traps and rent halls to raise money for their organization, so if you are looking for a hall to throw a party, it’s a nice facility to consider because you will know your money is going to more than profiting individuals.

        Despite it not being a no-kill shelter, and the luxurious building being a bit odd, I really do think Angels for Animals does a good job as a private animal shelter. They work hard to find the animals homes, and they are persistent about educating the public. It’s a great place to donate to, volunteer at, or even purchase services (like the event hall of vet care!) because the money goes to a good cause.
