I have checked out the new Humane Society in Reno and it is heads and shoulders above the old one. Let's face it, anywhere you board pets or have captured strays in numbers isn't going to smell that great. Even with that point being held aside, the new building is beautiful! It's much more user friendly than the old and better ventilated. Kudos to our city for finally doing something about the ventilation. I am not one of those people who say go and get a pet from the Humane Society since it seems like they are mostly dogs that I wouldn't want around my children come heck or high water but you never know when you'll find a gem in the rough. Check it out if you get a chance.
