      I adopted a 2 year old mixed breed dog from this shelter in 2013. After viewing all the dogs in the kennels I completed a short adoption application and then met with one of the staff to talk about which dogs would be a good fit for me and my lifestyle. Next I spent time in a getting acquainted room with my potential dog – playing with her and getting to know her. Finally, the staff assisted in a meet-n-greet with my current dog so we could be sure everyone got along. Then it was just a matter of paying the adoption fee and taking her home!

      Overall it was a very professional, well run experience. The dog I was originally interested in ended up not being a good fit for me, and the staff were very transparent about what they did and did not know about each dog so that I would make an informed decision. It was clear their goal was to help me find a dog that would be a good forever match for me.

      The application process was thorough enough to help ensure a right-fit home for the dogs, without utilizing artificial impediment that are not shown to improve outcomes. After being denied by another agency for having a 4 foot fence instead of the 5 foot fence they required, I was pleased to see that the Humane Society focuses on more important issues.

      My Humane Society alum Daisy bring me joy each day and I would highly recommend the Humane Society for Tacoma and Pierce County to anyone looking to add a great pet to their family!
