I would like to say that any close inspection of these negative reviews reveals just how stupid these negative reviewers are, whether it is the outlandish conspiracy theories, or their poor grammar and spelling. I have no doubt that the good folks at the NON PROFIT shelter were able to pick up on the ignorance and general incompetence of these would-be owners immediately. Not everybody is a good candidate to own a pet. If they were, these shelters would have no animals in them. There are processes and costs involved in adopting pets. If you can't afford them, you really can't afford a pet, so please do the animal a favor and walk away. If you cannot follow the procedures, you are too dumb to own a pet, so again I implore you to please walk away.

I handed a stray puppy off at the Boca shelter on 05/12, and I was very happy to see how caring and kind the staff was. I dropped $100 in the donation box on the way out to help them with their difficult and unending task of caring for lost and unwanted pets. They exist on donations, so stop acting like a bunch of entitled losers and try and make their jobs a little easier.

WORST ANIMAL SHELTER EVER!!

I went to visit a kitten for adoption this past Saturday...they would not even let me hold him until "my applciatin was approved". I provided all the inforamtion they requested. My current cat is 2 months past due on his shots. Keep in mind he is only 1 yr & 3 mo. old. After several emails & phone calls PLEADING with them to ??work with me? on attempting to adopt a kitten?I was told repeatedly...that they would still would not hold the kitty, quote ??if someone comes in & is approved they can adopt him? When I asked how much the adoption was?[with the intent of getting the fees taken care of ahead of time]?I was informed that it will cost me upwards of $200+ to adopt him. First they told me the adoption fee was $50, then they called back & told me it was $75 ("due to the vet bills", they said) {$75 adoption fee + $145 for neutering [and they won??t allow you to take the animal to your own vet] + a chip} This is SHAMEFUL....SHAMEFUL...SHAMEFULL I adopted my cat from the Ft. Lauderdale Humane Society. He was neutered, chipped & had his first two rounds of shots for $85.00 this also included medication & vet fees because when I adopted him he had a small respiratory infection. In a time when so many animals are in need of good homes that ??this privately owned & operated? shelter would charge these types of fees is OUTRAGEOUS!!
Let me be clear....their obvious goal is?.$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. And this starts with the head of the Board of Directors Jeannette Christos, which from what I??ve read?.is some shady character!

This place is the worst. I truly believe the owner is after financial gain and not the benefit of the animals.
It is one thing to screen out people willing to adopt,but another thing to over charge and also make it difficult for people who would like to adopt an animal when it is unwarrented.
I dont really know what they are up to but there is something that isnt right about this place.

We recently went to Tri County to look at dogs. The staff was rude, very elusive whenever we asked questions, and not welcoming at all. It had the feel of a puppy mill. There were 4 separate 'litters' of supposed pure bred puppies, and when we asked about why they were there, we were basically blown off. We weren't even allowed to touch a dog unless we filled out an application first, which we declined. It seems like they are working with puppy mills to sell as many as possible. We would NEVER return to this facility again. Like night and day compared to the Broward County Humane Society.

I am shocked at what I am reading on reviews. Five years ago I adopted a havenese from Tri-county (could be possibly mixed) and was very happy with my treatment and my dog. I stopped in to check out the dogs and took her home that same day. Sasha is the love of our life and we feel very lucky to have her. She is delightful and beautiful and when people see her, everyone wants a dog like her. We have absolutely no problems with her! I have not been back for some time but cannot believe it could change that much!

As a volunteer here and at other shelters, I can tell you this is the worst shelter I have ever seen. It simply needs to be shut down. The management staff is rude and incompetent and will do anything not to adopt animals because it would require them to work. The animal staff are ex convicts who routinely curse and verbally abuse potential adopters and dogs at the shelter. Stay away from this place. Hopefully it will go away and the animals will have a chance to be moved to a real shelter.

I have mixed feelings of the Tri-County Humane Society. I feel very strongly about adopting animals, since there are so many out there without homes. Unfortunately, the staff leaves more to be desired. They are very picky about who gets to adopt, which is good to a certain extent, but they are rude and none of your answers are good enough. For example, I was asked if I had any other animals at home. I understand the concern - they want to know if my new pet would be welcome in my home. But also if I say no then they don't want to trust me to be a first time pet owner either. All in all, I would adopt from them again because I believe in the mission but I wish the staff made it a more pleasant experience.
