I was looking on the internet for a dog , when I came across a dog at GHS. I drove to the facility and saw that there were so many animals to see. There were so many nice dogs of all sizes. One dog looked better than the other. You could see all the different personalities to choose from. It really made my decision very difficult, since I knew I could only have one. The staff at the shelter, was so helpful and friendly. Star really helped me find a good match for me. All of the dogs looked like they were cared for and their cage areas were clean. It really looks like the staff takes pride in their work.
Anyways, I came home with the most wonderful dog and I will now be living happily ever after.
I've adopted from the Glendale Humane Society before in the past and have had wonderful experiences each time. This place is just top-notch in every respect, from the friendly and well-trained staff to the well-cared-for and loving dogs and cats that are looking for homes.
The fact that it is a no-kill facility that is spacious, well-maintained, and by-the-book when it comes to health and safety protocols just makes it that much better; I've left each time knowing that my conscience is clear and the health and safety of my home and other pets are protected.
I simply cannot recommend this place more.
Pros: Caring Staff, Wonderful Animals
This is a wonderful no-kill animal rescue organization. They usually rescue otherwise adoptable animals (healthy and non-aggressive towards humans) that ran out of time at a high-kill shelter. The staff are great, friendly and helpful. They feed the animals a better diet than most of the general public feed their pets. Yes, their adoption fees are more than the more common high-kill shelter, but I'm willing to pay the extra cost to know that they are giving loveable, affectionate animals a long-term chance for a forever home.
Pros: Great staff and volunteers, dogs and cats, parking
