This is the first review I have ever written and feel so strongly about Kay's that I am proud to say this is well worth the time writting. My family has been going here for years and have never had a problem. It is hard what the family has to go through to keep these animals with little funding. I come there often just to visit the animals. I have recomended this shelter to numerous people and am proud that several have adopted with absolutly no issue. I have a lot of respect for "No-Kill" shelters, but am not blind to the issues to keeping a shelter like this running. They do their best. Please give them a chance.

We are thrilled with our dog, Poco that we got as a puppy. It's a shame for the dogs in the way back who are left with little company. We are going in this weekend to adopt an adult dog! Other then the adults left behind, this place is a wonderful place to adopt a dog. May not be the cleanest, but you know that the people in charge of it care for their dogs. It is a no-kill shelter

I adopted both of my dogs from Kay's 11 and 10 years ago as puppies. Never had a problem with my babies. Love them to death. Adopt from Kay's. Great family that is always running to save animals. I live in the neighborhood and stop by quite often. The shelter is always clean and there are always loving dogs/cats, puppies and kittens looking for loving homes. Stop the puppymills and adopt from a shelter there are too many animals without loving and caring human companions. They need us to take good care of them. They depend on us. God Bless Kays and all the work they do.

This is a no kill shelter. This is not the cleanest, best run or most comfortable shelter for the animals, but for so many animals it is their only hope. The dedicated, overtired and overworked staff consists of one family that travels all over the state rescuing dogs and cats from shelters- some of those shelters have an 80% rate of euthanasia. Yes, Kay's is crowded. No, the animals don't get enough exercise. This is a small family run non-profit. They pick up many down state puppies and they say Yes to picking up animals about to face the needle in other shelters. They may say yes more often than they should, but I guess it's hard for animal lovers to say no. Yes rescue a dog or cat from here, but they'll probably soon fill the cage with an animal that would otherwise be killed. On the plus side, the kill shelters have plenty of space, are very clean, and give the pleasant appearance of extremely well run institutions. The animals that are allowed to live are treated very well. I agree, I'd never want to see an animal suffer, shame more shelters aren't better funded.

We got our dog from Kay's several years ago. The process was quick and easy. Our dog has been nothing short of amazing, she is everything we wanted in a dog. I would adopt another dog from Kay's in a heartbeat, if we had more room. Our dog was healthy, clean and well trained when we brought her home. She is the perfect addition to our family. Four stars, only because I don't see enough dogs getting excersized outside during the day.

I feel so bad for these dogs and puppies. they had a huge husky cramped in a small cage. It wasnt even enough room for the dog. the same size cage was used for little beagals. my puppy came from there and they didnt even do any background checks or anything. he had a lot of things wrong with him when i brought him to the vet he had fleas, kennel cough and had a lump in hisleg due to poor injection of something the shelter gave him. I would ask the shelter a week before i got my puppy how old he was they told me he was 8 weeks, a week later when i went to go buy him they said he was 8 weeks.... i dont think they pay much attention to the dog.

also i was there and they had a puppy throwing up =[

the people are not friendly at all.

The only reason I didn't give this place two stars is because every animal deserves a good home and people shoudl go to the shelters.
However, this shelter is a sad sad reminder of how little regard we have for animals. Dogs are caged in small cages and sleep on the concrete floors. Going down the hallway with cages lined up next to each other you may go deaf because of all the barking. Most older dogs are kept all the way in the back and are often left unattended...
Please, do adopt from this shelter so maybe they can use the money to renovate and improve their facilities.
