Monroe Animal Shelter — Adopting a dog
They had a sign out on the main road that it was Pet Adoption Day so I stopped in. I wanted to adopt a dog up to a year old and was hoping to find a rescue dog which I was told they had here. All the dogs were outside in cages. A woman approached me and asked me to fill out an application. I told her that I just wanted to look. She said I can't unless I fill out an application but I didn't see why it was necessary if I didn't find a dog to adopt, so I left.See the Top 10 Worst Complaints in Monroe, CT Few days later, I stopped in again and another woman approached me and asked if I had an appt. I said no but I just wanted to look. She said no, not without an appointment which was crazy because I was there before closing. So I left. I checked on line to fill out an application so that I can send it or bring it to them, but there was an on line fee for the application of $20, but if you fill it out there it's free. So you are not only paying 3-$400 for adoption but the application also. These poor dogs need to be adopted and why on earth do they make it so hard for people? What if I walked away with a dog that day? I would have saved a life.
