We visited this facility after going to Cobb, Paulding and Douglas County shelters. The cleanliness, organization and knowledgable staff made this a very pleasant surprise. We adopted a dog from them and the staff were all very in-touch and enthusiastic about the animals here. Very positive experience.

I've taken this course (it's 1, not 5) and the young lady who teaches it is no ordinary teen. She's volunteered 1000's of hours, trained for years, consults with well known experts, and helped designed this program. It isn't about walking dogs, it's about teaching them tools so they can cope with shelter life, be more adoptable, and have their adoptions succeed. Anyone who has volunteered with animals long knows these are critical, yet I know of no other shelter that does it (and I know several). Shelters don't cause euthanizing, irresponsible citizens do.

This shelter has a nice physical facility, but it is almost impossible to volunteer here. Very unfriendly to those wanting to help. At least five 'courses' taught by a high school student before you can even walk a dog. It's sad because the dogs are the ones who suffer.

These poor dogs are so sad. The people who run this shelter would rather see them killed than adopted or rescued by rescue people. They have an incinerator full of bones of the animals they have killed.
