I adopted an amazing dog from this shelter 16 years ago so when she passed I thought I would adopt another. I was astounded to find that nearly every dog was restricted from homes with kids under 12. I felt I extremely lucky to find one restriction free that my kids adored. One of the volunteers was extremely helpful and gave us a great deal of information on the dog and her breed. But she said we had to speak to the "lady up front" to visit the dog. We patiently waited nearly a half hour only to be rudely told that the dog has cat restrictions and that the shelter has no dogs for us. There was nothing on the cage or on the website about cat restrictions. I will not be going back and will be looking for a dog elsewhere.

I do not like theses people at all their staff his rude and TO adopt an animal is much harder then I think it should be. They also do not name breed of dog corecttly. I am sorry but a american bull dog is not a pit bull. last time i went there that is the breed they marked down for one.
but I am deffently sad that half the staff is rude. and have no people schools most should not be working there

Most important I do like they take care of the animals and tend to their needs. keeping a clean liveing space for the animals but. I would not reccoment really talking to the staff there. due to how rude most of them are.

We have gone to this shelter a few times seeking a family dog. At the time, we had a six year old son, and there were very few dogs they would consider adopting out to us. This is still true almost three years later, I have stopped by twice recently and most of the dogs cannot go to families with kids under 12. Given the large percentage of dogs unsuitable for families with grade school aged children. I suspect they are doing little to really evaluate the dogs, or rehabilitate any problems (like larger dogs jumping up), it's just easier to say "no kids under 12, than it is to do a good evaluation and address any issues. Our only choices were pitbulls, which, right or wrong, our home owners insurance will not cover. We ended up getting a newfie mix puppy, from an accidental litter, and almost a year later, she is close to the perfect pet, and perfect for our family, but I would have liked to rescued a dog. (had similar problems with two rescues we tried). Also, the signs on the cages give you very limited information about the dogs. The Bonnie Hayes isn't bad, they weren't terribly rude or anything, but they are not great ambassadors for "get a shelter dog". They are really going to have to step it up a little.

We went to Bonnie Hays looking for our older cat who had run off, probably to pass on, as he was ill. While there, a cute black kitten with a white spot on her chest, literally reached out to us with her paw, and we brought her home. We have no complaints about the service, and cost was certainly no issue, as I'm sure there is no one there making a ton of money adopting out pets. I'm not sure if their system works, if it could work better, if they could be friendlier, etc. I just know a lovely kitty named Lucy found us because she was here at this shelter, and I am thankful there is at least some sort of shelter helping to adopt out pets and doing what they can to achieve "no more homeless pets". It is the job of the community to make sure their shelter represents their values. If you want change, then go to the next supervisor's meeting, give to good animal welfare charities, and for goodness sake, take responsibility for these animals we have domesticated, and speak out against cruelty.

Terrible. I cannot say how terrible this place is. The people are rude and sometimes outright mean for no reason I can ascertain.

Their paperwork system is antiquated and, in the age of the net, unacceptable. I hope to never have to deal with them in the future. I do not know if this is a management problem, a staff problem, a Washington County problem or what.

I have dealt with other overworked, underpaid, under staffed animal shelters in the past but I have never had the series of negative experiences that I have had with Bonnie L. Hayes Animal Shelter.

I recently adopted from this shelter and have to admit that I almost didn't due to the reviews - BUT - I believe in adopting from shelters, so decided to at least check them out. I am SOOOO glad I did. I ended up adopting a 4 mth old kitten who had been "returned" once due to him getting a viral infection and the owners not wanting to deal with it and because the kitten was not friendly. Well, I have to say, I am glad I gave Mike a 2nd chance. He is the sweetest kitty you will ever see and he is managing just fine in our loud and busy house. (I think he just was not feeling well) It may have been an $80 fee, but that included his shots, neutering, microchip, flea meds, not to mention they treated him for his infection (and according to his records he did seem to be a sick kitty). I even got a free vet visit with my own vet and he got a stamp of approval for health. These shelters are doing SO much under such heart breaking circumstances. Yeah, they should be nice and courtesous, but as long as the animals are clean and treated well, that should be the No. 1 priority. It is going to happen where a shelter, or any place that houses so many animals, will come down with infections and sickness, but I really think they are there for the best interests of the animals. I almost adopted a kitten from a friend and to do all the things needed, including surgery, shots, vet visits, etc., I would have spent hundreds over $500 dollars. And with BLH I only spent $80 and got much more - that alone has to make you realize they aren't in it for the money. . .If anything, go to a shelter to support all the animals without a home and need one and SPAY AND NEUTER your pets!

This is the county dog pound, and by that standard, they are easy enough to deal with as long as you have the money to pay your fines.

Adoption from them isn't exactly cheap, but I got a good dog last time. If you are in to adopt a pet they are nicer than when you show up to pay a fine for your pooch that got loose.

Still, I had a lost dog one time and I called them. Someone reported the dog and the pound called me. They didn't hop out there to impound my dog and fine me.

There are a very low number of stray dogs around because if these animal control officers see your pooch loose, they will pick em' up. You'll pay a pretty nasty fine. 3 strikes and the dog is out. A couple of my dogs have had a couple aliases ;)

So it's the dog pound. They are nicer when you are adopting a puppy than when you are paying your fine. You are probably nicer too.

For a branch of county law enforcement, meh..... they are the dog police. I've paid a few fines for loose bozos over the years, but I'd give em' a break. They seem to at least somewhat care about the animals.

I got a good dog from them. That's worth a good rating. They called me back in a year and asked what happened. It would seem to be in keeping with humane treatment of animals and law enforcement. A charity they are not.

I've lived here for 45 years and it's about as good a dog pound as a guy could expect. It's gonna be 100 bucks at least when they catch your dog. That can be a problem if you're broke or you have a dog that's hard to contain.

Always call first and speak to a person BEFORE going out to the shelter. Their fee schedule still includes euthanasia with general cremation. They NO LONGER offer this service and you are instructed to contact a vet. The cost at the shelter would have $51 for a pet up to 20 pounds. Taking the pet to a vet will cost for an examination, euthanasia and disposal of the remains. Expect to pay about $160.00 or more.

I drive professionally in Washington County and once in awhile I will see a deceased dog or cat on the road. I will pull over and immediately call Bonnie Hays Animal Shelter and report the deceased animal. 9 out of 10 times the animal will be removed the same day. I an very grateful for the shelter.

No evidence, no grounds and for no other reason then escaping the back yard and being afraid of a dog catcher and Bonnie L Hays has jailed our family pet of 4 years for 6 weeks with no visits, no reports of condition and no indication of his state of mind.
After six weeks I can only assume the skin problems have reached an extremely severe state, and he is so depressed he won??t eat. This in addition to traditional kennel related dieses, and health problems that are very likely given their extreme secrecy.
If you have donations or want to give proper care for a stray DON??T GIVE to this money machine for Washington County.

Staffmembers are very professional and helpful. We brought them a stray who'd DASHED into our house from the below-freezing cold, asking if he belonged to anyone, and they were able to scan him and tell us that he had no microchip and no record, and he was neutered male. When we were faced with the option of either keeping the cat or paying $10 to leave him there to be adopted out, our decision relied heavily on the information they were able to provide us about the finances required and basic care for a cat. We are now the happy owners of Zoomerz, the siamese who ran in, and we are incredibly happy with him in our family. =:] side note: I'm very confused by all the negative posts, honestly when we came to the shelter they were very friendly and respectful with us, and were even able to give us suggestions as to where to get cat trees etc. They also taught us how to clip our cat's nails, and with all the services and information they provided, we paid NOTHING that day. I will be returning there soon to get my little furrball microchipped, so even if he someday manages to sneak out (we named him Zoomerz because he's always rocketing around the house, FAR too fast to be caught, I fear the day he tries going at the door) he never has to be a stray again.

To Writer who expected to be able to DUMP their DOG out of CONVENIENCE- Dumping your Dog at a shelter that TRANSFERS them to another shelter that KILLS THEM them is EVIL. You are responsible for finding your dog a good home. NOT the County shelter.
I ADOPTED ALL 3 OF MY WONDERFUL SENIOR DOGS directly from the irresponsilble people who no longer wanted them. Ask God to send a wonderful new person to adopt your animal.
PS... Don't EVER get another animal. YOU are too NARCISSISTIC to care for a dependant pet.
You can improve though. Take Care, Tigard

I have volunteered at the shelter and while I can't speak to their handling of customers, I believe that they've had a lot of changes in management and staffing there lately. As one person on here already said, the situation up there is very overwhelming. They have always treated me and all the volunteers there with much appreciation and respect, but when it comes down to it, it really is about the animals. If you simply can't handle interacting with the staff of the shelter themselves, at least go and adopt at one of the several places that they send animals for adoption exposure - they bring cats into local PetSmart stores and some other pet stores in the area often. By avoiding this particular shelter, you're jeopardizing the lives of the local stray population based on the behavior of the shelter staff - the shelter is NOT no kill, unfortunately. Besides, is the way they treated you on one particular day really going to matter after you've settled in at home with your new furry companion? I encourage you to please rethink your decision to abandon Hillsboro's stray population, there are a lot of wonderful animals that I see there day to day and all of them deserve a loving home - to discriminate against this shelter is to discriminate against these animals themselves and I urge you to put your personal feelings behind you for their sake.

To be completely honest, Bonnie Hays is a no kill shelter (which i can appreciate) except for the fact that they seriously lack in other areas. For example, I needed to re-home a dog of mine because we had moved and he had a very difficult time adjusting from a ranch to an apt. So after weeks of deliberation I decided to give Bonnie Hays a call. What they had to tell me was appauling! First of all they only accept strays, makes a lot of sense doesnt it? They will take stray, unpredictable, poss dangerous dogs, of which they have no background or health knowledge, but if you have a happy, healthy, neutered, vacinated, licensed family dog, they wont except them. Even if they consider the dog they will charge you (a very steap price i might add) to take them... so then what? What happens to all these good dogs that cant find a home? Euthenasia? Abandonment? Isnt that what they are trying to prevent?? Makes a whole lot of sense doesnt it? Thats problem 1. Problem 2, The "adoption" fee for these dogs is over $250. Thats insane, Now, I understand that it costs money to take care of these dogs (esspecially when you are just pooring money into them to neuter, spay, vacinate and socialize) all of which could easily be avoided if they simply accepted those dogs from the private owner. So what? In my oppinion there efforts are great, they are really trying there to take care of these unwanted animals but if they would only consider different policies I believe that they would be much more efficient in adopting out dogs and also save a grip of money, which could then be put back into the shelter.

We have been working with Bonnie Hays for a couple of week. They have worked hard with us to find ways to get our neighborhood cat population under control. At times they were overwhelmed with all the people coming in with cats. But they were able to help me get many resources to help with this problem. The biggest problem is not the attitudes at the shelter! It is NOT SPAYING and NEUTERING your cats. Just feeding them only makes the problem worse. Volunteer for a while at the shelter maybe you might see how overwhelmed they are. Bonnie Hays needs help for the animals sake. And again I say they have helped in many ways these past 2 weeks, we did need to talk to them about what we were doing to help with the issue as well. Just taking in cats isn't going to help if there are still unfixed cats. Be a cat advocate and talk to your neighbors and get the whole neighborhood involved in spaying and neutering the cats.I am really sorry some people have had a difficult time with some people there. Talk to their superior but lets not abandon this facility for the animals sake.Thank you Bonnie Hayes Animal Shelter for helping us. They will give you many other contacts that can help with cat issues.

I agree with Dan,s post staff very rude and arrogant-i will not adopt from here nor will i support it- The staff wouldn't give me or my children the time of day and acted as though they where annoyed we where even there looking at cats! Sherwood cat facility will get my money.

I don't usually bother to write reviews but I am so upset at the treatment I received from this animal shelter that I had to write this one. I wish I could give this institution negative 5 stars.

I was trying to ask some basic questions and received the most unprofessional and rude responses I have had in a very long time from any kind of organization. The people were very rude, dismissive and unresponsive.

If they are trying to avoid receiving donations and volunteers and business then they are doing an excellent job of alienating this particular portion of the public that keeps them in business. They are the worst animal shelter I have ever had the displeasure of dealing with.

I do not know what is wrong with these people. Are they so arrogant that they think they are superior to the people who pay their salaries and keep the doors open? If this is how they treat people who can leave reviews such as this one, how do they treat the animals? I do not know but I would never want any of my animals to be anywhere near this 'humane' shelter.

I will tell anyone who asks about how terribly upset Bonnie Hays made me on more than one occasion. Their management, if there is one, should be called onto the carpet and replaced if this is how they face the public.

Bonnie Hays will not get any help from me, ever. I will go out of my way to help shelters that have nothing whatsoever to do with anything in Washington County Oregon...ever.

Just terrible and a real blow for animal lovers.

I don't usually bother to write reviews but I am so upset at the treatment I received from this animal shelter that I had to write this one. I wish I could give this institution negative 5 stars.

I was trying to ask some basic questions and received the most unprofessional and rude responses I have had in a very long time from any kind of organization. The people were very rude, dismissive and unresponsive.

If they are trying to avoid receiving donations and volunteers and business then they are doing an excellent job of alienating this particular portion of the public that keeps them in business. They are the worst animal shelter I have ever had the displeasure of dealing with.

I do not know what is wrong with these people. Are they so arrogant that they think they are superior to the people who pay their salaries and keep the doors open? If this is how they treat people who can leave reviews such as this one, how do they treat the animals? I do not know but I would never want any of my animals to be anywhere near this 'humane' shelter.

Just a point of clarification -- in the 2005-2006 annual report (the only one on their web site) Bonnie Hayes shelter reported that they released 77% of dogs and only 41% of cats to owners, other shelters, or adoptive homes. Bonnie Hayes is not a no-kill facility. Please be aware that the majority of cats and many dogs that end up there will be killed. Why? Because there are simply not enough homes for all of the puppies and kittens born. Please, please, spay or neuter your pets. If you allow your pets to reproduce you are contributing to the senseless deaths that occur in shelters. Also, please adopt your pets from Bonnie Hayes or another shelter. Buying pets from pet stores or breeders only encourages the breeding of more animals.

I went to Bonnie Hays with a friend, who was adopting a dog.
It seemed like a pretty good shelter. The staff was very helpful, and involved in the adoption process. The dog my friend adopted was as they described him...no suprises. Post-adoption, they've checked in to see how he's doing.
The only thing I didnt like was the long ride out there....it's in Hillsboro.
