    Me & my friends John & Darcy built most of the kennels there, as well as the 'volunteer hut' a few years ago. To be fair, there were many hands involved in the construction.
    Annie's Orphans is a very worthy shelter. So is the Humane Society here. In fact, every local Humane Society I've visited has been good--although I can't give the same props to the National organization.

    "One critter adopted, two lives saved", that's what I say.

      does not run shelters. I think maybe they didn't copyright their name or something but local Humane Societies have nothing to do with the National one. So if you like one you don't have to like the other.

        I sort of thought of it as akin to The Red Cross, ie., top heavy & out of touch with what's happening 'on the ground'. And most local Red Cross's do good work...hence the comparison in my mind. Good to know the facts, thanks.
