What do their customers think?

One fan of the company publicly wrote, “I found a pup on the side of the highway and after a couple days of keeping her while attempting to find her owners, I was finally contacted by them. However, devastatingly they did not want her back. She was beautiful and just needed a little more attention, love & training as she was only 7 months old. My husband and I travel often and sadly, couldn’t keep her. SCAS allowed me to bring her in, with arms wide open!! Staff was wonderful to work with, kind and attentive. They contacted the previous owner to confirm this decision and within days had Daisy adopted to a wonderful, pre-screened and welcoming family that could give her the love she sought & needed. Wonderful place.”

Another fan of the Surface Creek Animal Shelter publicly wrote, “Absolutely loved this shelter. Clean, friendly, and very helpful. Cannot recommend this shelter enough.”

The staff are very caring and dedicated to the cats and dogs that find themselves at the shelter.
