Yesterday we were looking for a new dog to be a companion for our family and our other family dog. We looked on Petfinder and found a very cute dog at Sugar Land Animal Services.
After we arrived at their very clean facility, we were greeted promptly by not one, but several very friendly staff members.
Their place is clean and the shelters for each pet are spacious and comfortable. I was so pleasantly surprised by the difference between this shelter and any other I've seen before.
From beginning to end, we were treated warmly, watched them give the same service to everyone who walked in the door. They were very loving and attentive to all the pets. There were plenty of staff to make sure that everyone got the necessary attention.
Without any money exchange or massive paperwork, they allowed us to name the time frame needed and take our dog home on a trial basis. They gave us a leash and collar, as well as food for her.
When I came back to tell them I definitely wanted to adopt her, they showed me the same exact service. I am blown away at how wonderful this shelter is. I hope they can lead an example for the rest of the shelters to follow and save more animals lives.
