Animal Shelter reviews in Rockaway Park

    Rich & Tom's Ground To Chimney
    The racoon mother retrieved 4 of her babies, but 2 were left. They responded quickly the next day and contacted a rescue group who came immediately and retrieved the final 2 babies. Everyone was extremely pleasant to work with. We were very satisfied.

    ASPCA
    I have had experience with ASPCA where I adopted the pets. I had a good experience with them. As a matter of fact I support them and I am a member and I contribute to them on a monthly basis. I think they do a good job or at least they try to. When I went there to adopt these 2 cats and I adopted another pet from them. We always go to the shelter. It is a clean environment. They try to make sure that the animals are up to date on the shots. They give you time to have your own veterinarian look at them. If there is any problem they try to follow up with you. They show real interest in not only the animal but in who is taking them home. It is the ASPCA bird hospital. They have the shelter and they also have the bird institute hospital there. That's part of the building. They have veterinarians. They will screen the animals and check their health. They give them any shots that they need. I am assuming that's how they do it. The cost was in the range of what the other veterinarians are charging. They are competitive with everybody else in comparison. The quality was very good. They took very good care of my animal and it was very clean. They are very responsive to you when you come in and responsive to your pet. They were pretty much on time. They are very professional. I live near the Bronx, we are New Yonkers, it is a bit of difficult to get to them. When my brother is available he will drive me down. It is hard to park in Manhattan. That's the only thing that's difficult about it. As far as the care goes it is very good.

    LITTLE SHELTER
    I applied to volunteer to assist at the Little Shelter and attended an orientation which was required before anyone can tend to the animals. Kathy Riccoboni is in charge of the volunteers and she is so effervescent and approachable. She encouraged questions from the volunteers who attended the orientation and expertly fielded all of them. The volunteer program is laid back and volunteers make their own schedules. Because this is a no kill facility, Little Shelter houses some special needs dogs and cats which are difficult to adopt. I try to give these cuties more attention. This has been a truly fulfilling and gratifying experience and a great place to volunteer for those who have a few hours a week to spare.

    One cat the female CeCe is not a wallflower anymore.  At first, she would  always hide under the bed.  And I coaxed her out with my voice, brushing her gently and petting her.  She had to jump on the bed for me to do this, which she did occasionally and when she did, she loved the attention!  She is now quite comfortable and owns this one bedroom apartment. A real, Queen of Sheba.  I am looking around the apartment living room and I just know she's watching, "Window TV." Window TV is when she sits on the window sill and looks outside, and sees all kinds of critters(birds, chipmunks and the such) windy leaves, things that move and rays of sun to bask in :-) However, she also sleeps in many positions and right now, she is not watching Window TV, but curled up in a ball sleeping on the top of our love seat.  Guess who else is there, on the cushions? Smith, our male feral cat that we received from Ann at Sound Earth.  He can get quite feisty, but now there's no story to tell but that Smith is asleep! Thank you Ann for our two new family members. My husband and I are just bedazzled by them. They are like calm babies now, just ate, but do the things cats do like knocking things over, playing and Meowing for their meals!! They are beautiful grey and brown tiger cats which Ann brought over herself to inspect the surroundings.  Everything was to her and our liking.  We have 2 new family members, thank you Sound Earth!

    NEW ROCHELLE ANIMAL HOSPITAL
    New Rochelle Animal Hospital is a no kill shelter. They gave me a list of free spaying. I love them. Their facility is clean and the animals are well taken care off much better than at other shelters. They were good. Cleanliness stands out. I can't stand when you go to shelters and they small and are not clean. All the animals are clean and well cared for. It is almost like a home environment for the animals. They have volunteers who pick up the animals. It is what to me a shelter should be. Their price is fair for what they do. I don't have any complaints. I had no problems with them. I would go back if I needed to adopt and I would recommend people to go there.

    Beagle Freedom Project
    Some of the beagles have been rescued from testing labs. They need a lot of love and patience, which is gladly given. They have just come out of years of being in cages and not seeing the sunlight. I think that Shannon, the founder, is the most wonderful person in the world for rescuing these dogs. We should have more people in the world like her who manage to get several dogs from animal testing labs. Animal Rescue Media Education Corp is the mission company they are also associated with.  She works through negotiation and legality. Recently, the Beagle Freedom Bill has been passed in CA and Minnesota.  It states that when the laboratories are "finished"  with the beagles and now other testing animals, they will not be put to death, but given the chance to live, be fostered and adopted, by Law!  There are many people wanting these animals all over the country, Yeah!  Yes, Shannon is a Hero among all she comes in contact with through the Animal Rescue Media Education Beagle Freedom Project!!

    Friends of Randolph Animal Pound
    They were very thorough in their adoption process in figuring where the animals had to be placed and which ones should go where.  They knew the animal’s personality and they fit the animal with the person.

    We would highly recommend them. They are very thorough and caring. They are mostly volunteers and if they don’t have an answer, they would make sure and find the answer. They are willing to help.

    NOAH'S ARK PET CLINIC
    I was actually invited to a tricky tray by a friend of mine who had adopted somebody from NOAH’S ARK.   The people I met there were wonderful.  I was looking to add a cat to my household.  In the tricky tray they had a number of little pieces on a board as to who is available.  They were very nice in explaining all the pros and cons of some of these cats that they knew and I went over to the shelter and they were really nice.  They took me on a tour of the whole place.  They didn’t bring the animal out to me they allowed me to go in and see where everybody was and things like that.  It wasn’t a secret visit.  They allowed me to go through and see some of the other animals.  They had a lot of trainers who were socializing the animals and playing with them.  We get a better feel of what each one was and they weren’t pushy.  They were very nice as far as making sure the pet goes to the right home to.  They were very good in that way.

    JERSEY SHORE ANIMAL CENTER
    They are very thorough and offer a very good service. I have also had friends adopt pets from Jersery Shore Animal Center. I really like that they do background checks and make sure that the individuals adopting the animals are taking their pets to veterinarian visits regularly.
