Our Testimonials

cds"I just thought I would let you know how our shelter is doing after three years. The back to back kennels have been a tremendous improvement in stress reduction. I love it. Individual drains in each kennel as you suggested are, in my estimation, the only way to go. They work well and disease problems with dogs have been virtually nonexistent. You saved us from having a building that looked like a factory. The exterior is welcoming and non-institutional-looking. To sum it up, our fees to you were the best money we ever spent."

"Shelter Planners of America designed a great people-friendly shelter for us. It is pleasing to the eye, but most importantly it functions extremely well for the animals comfort and from the employee¹s point of view. I receive compliments from our visitors all the time telling me this is the nicest shelter they have seen. The fact that visitors find our shelter so attractive is mere icing on the cake."

"We are so completely satisfied with our new shelter, we urge all groups to take advantage of your experience designing shelters. Our animals are healthy and seem to be as happy as if they were in a home. The shelter is so quiet and natural sunlight streams into all animal areas. Why aren't all shelters designed to house animals in these friendly and easy to maintain kennels? Every person we contacted for whom you designed a shelter had only glowing praise for your projects."

~ Dean Roseby, Pres. Animal Care Shelter Freedom, CA

"Because we have never been involved in building a new shelter, it was a relief to have a highly knowledgeable team to guide us through the planning process. SPA has given us the information and understanding needed to make wise decisions in designing our new 9,000 square foot facility. We are extremely pleased to recommend Shelter Planners of America."

~ Debra Joseph, Exec. Dir., SPCA of Fredericksburg, VA

"It is our pleasure to highly recommend Shelter Planners of America to any group planning to build a new animal shelter.

We feel totally confident in the abilities of SPA helping us every step of the way to our beautiful new animal adoption shelter."
