I like to visit the shelter regularly and also help walk their shelter dogs in one of there 2 large outdoor fenced areas. The staff are always friendly and the shelter is kept very clean, it doesn't smell bad at all like other shelters may. It's a nice organized place. You can become a volunter if you want, foster home to care for animals or enroll the children in their kids clubs call Bow wow Meow club(they get snacks, unique animal encounters, tshirt, crafts). Their website is also superb, it shows videos of pets available and a "tails to tell" section of adopters stories from them. It's nice to always visit!
