We've been patienly waiting over a week now for some sort of feedback from CAPS. I understand it's volunteer based and take that into consideration when I write this. There is a cat at PetSmart that I'd like to adopt. My partner filled out the application and had it faxed. He made a phone call to CAPS leaving a message and not getting any response. He called PetSmart and they said the "Almost Home" sign was down. The manager, Amber, was kind enough to put it back up. The cat is in need of grooming and it's sad they don't care for them as they should. With so many cats needing a good home, you'd expect Carol to make this a priority.

Not sure why the reviews are so bad. It made me nervous to go through them but I fell in love with a dog there so I went with them anyways. I had a great experience. No issues. I did keep seeing complaints about carol and never met a carol so I don't know if she is gone now or something. But I reccomend Cascade!

Very Sad, We bought what we thought was a great family dog from CAPS. He was sweet and cute however had a bad habit of biting children. When we called CAPS to let them know -they acused us of harming him and giving up on him-this wasn't the case. We trained this dog, love this dog and were extremely sad to see him go back. CAPS resold him and didn't list his biting habit accurately- hopefully you didn't buy him. He was aggressive to children and liked biting faces. Our family including our 3 children were heartbroken to see him go.

definitely save your self the heart break, just like that lady said about the cat. My family was going to adopt a dog she said she would call and set up for a house check, we waited for a week left messages and no answer, when i did get to talk to someone they had yelled at me on the phone and i was just asking if the dog was still up for adoption and when they were planing on doing a house check, when she finally called me back with the answers she had said she did a house check and that we were unexceptionable and the dog had already been adopted out. and also when we were filling out the adoption form the guy had said we were the only ones who were trying to adopt him. She is a liar and doesn't deserve to do what she does.

My family adopted a cat through CAPS some years ago. We were told that Cara (a beautiful calico) was seven years old and in great health; Carol (the head of CAPS) told us that Cara had been her cat and that she had files with a local vet. Cara had no such records with the vet - although she did require several hundred dollars in oral surgery and care. She was twelve years old, and we later found out from Carol's husband, a stray that they had found several days before. Besides Carol??s obvious lies (and evasion of the vet bill she had agreed to pay before selling us Cara), the cat was angry and scratched at my young daughter??s eyes; she was easily provoked and not a decent pet for any family.
More recently, my family tried to adopt a cat through a local PETSMART (the adoption center is run by CAPS); we found out after several days that someone somewhere had spoken with Carol and requested the cat we had put papers in for. After many long visits to see our little Buck (a Siamese kitten), many false promises that she would call us ??tomorrow,? and a week of anxiety, Carol gave the cat to someone else (who she claimed had showed an interest in Buck before us; his adoption papers for the cat were never actually located, however). Although my daughter was in tears, I was touched that she offered to help Carol with her shopping cart full of kitty cages. Carol did not take the act of selfless kindness well, however ?? she yelled at my daughter (upset that we had come to say goodbye to our kitty) and ignored us the rest of the evening. She let the door slam behind her on the cat cages and stormed around the store long after our little Buck had been taken off to his new home.
The other families around us were treated much the same way; Carol refused them a cat they had filled out papers for because they had planned on making the cat an indoor/outdoor cat (although the mother quickly offered to keep the cat inside when Carol screamed, ??They are indoor cats only!?). We watched her treat the kitties in a cruel and careless way ?? she clearly has no love for the animals and no respect at all for the customers who wish to take them home. She demands a full inspection of your house before letting you adopt a pet and required the right to stop in at any time to check up on your treatment of the pet. I only wish someone could ??check up? on her treatment of the animals.
In the meantime, my daughter takes comfort in the golden retriever and black cat that we have had throughout her childhood (we didn??t adopt either from CAPS). She has learned an important lesson about cruel people and had her heart broken. I have heard other horror stories much like ours. Please, for my daughter??s sake and for your own, don??t adopt anything through CAPS!

Would not allow adoption of cat because we manage our cats as indoor/outdoor. While I respect their right to make the decision, the attitude was very self righteous and scolding and did not consider any other factors, such as excellent recommendation from our vet. I'd like to give them a better review, because I think it's important to have no-kill groups in the area. They don't actually run a shelter, but foster all their animals, I think this is a plus as it means the animal is interacting in a normal family atmosphere while it waits for placement.

When my sister lost her cat last October,her semi-feral cat was beside herself. My sister was not ready to get another cat but for the sake of her other cat and her own sanity (the remaining cat was grieving very loudly), she looked into Cascade Animal Protection Society because it was highly recommended to her. She ended up getting the most loving 6 month old male cat that has added life to her semi-feral cat and laughter to my sister's life. I lost my own beloved cat in April and after grieving over him for many months, I am ready to get another cat. I will be going through CAPS also. This is the way to go, you work with people who love these animals, who are familar with their personalities and traits and will match you up with the type of pet best suited for you. I have already picked out a 4 month old female kitten which the foster mother will hold for me till after the year. I am very impressed with this group and will highly recommend it to everyone.

Well when I adopted my dog from Cascade Animal Protection Society. I was told he was going to be put out to sleep in 1 month. they told me he good with cats, he was 2 years old, healthy, and liked to ride in cars. About 2 days latter I found out he liked to eat cats, puked in my car after driving around the block. When I took him to the vet I found out he was 6 years old and needed 500 dollars of work done on his teeth because so many of them where infected( they ended having to pull out 3) I also found out Cascade Animal Protection Society turned out to be a no kill shelter. Now for my dog, hes great. he jogs with me where ever i go( and is the main reason I have gotten into shape) , greats me at the door when ever i come home, and sleeps with me during wind storms. My dog is also responsible for defending my dad when a stray dog attacked him( My dog ressled him to the ground)I don't think I could have asked for better dog, he was well worth all the money I have had to spend on him. I guess I am just mad the shelter did such a poor job of miss representing of my dog . I feel I was lucky to get a great a dog like mine but i would not trust them to get another.
