Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center the largest no -kill animal facility in Riverside Ca. Located at 6165 Industrial Ave. Riverside Ca. 92504 (formally the Humane Society) one word stands out for this organization, HUMANE most definitely so. Being the animal lover that Iam upon visiting here I noticed right away the wonderful sound of the barking dogs. As I scurried through the walk way and entered the doors, I heard the constant ring of the phones, a watched busy people all about, everyone smiled pleasantly to greet me. Checking the site for cleanliness they were an A+ in my book. On a mission to adopt my Canine Cocker Spaniel friend I followed the sound of barking until it became closer, passing on the way the Cat Caterey filled with kittens and Cats of all ages and sizes. Stopping briefly to glance at one of the precious kitten who had caught my eye. As I was walking I noticed several different advertisements. With Volunteer opportunities, upcoming events, Golf Marathons, and my favorite of all were the “Buy A Brick ” you can buy a brick to pave the “Celerbration Walkway “ at the center and add you own lasting impression to the brick. With thoughts of a loved one, create a lasting memory, the brick will be added to his walkway for you to visit and others to see. All that could be found on the Mary S. Roberts website. Mary S Roberts’s - http://wwwpetsadoption.org A Behavior Helpline found on the website as well and helpful information about the center. As of March 1st 2011 with a newly opened Pet Adoption Thrift Store located at 6065 Magnolia Ave. In Riverside Ca. With a fantastic selection of gently used merchandise. From furniture, household items, books, jewelry and antiques. Proceeds go directly to fund the Mary S Roberts Center to help save and improve lives of the animals. Noticing some of the fun upcoming events I grabbed a flyer which read : “Parking Lot Sale and Adoption Sell It Again Sams and Mary S Roberts Pet Adoption Center on July 31, 2011 from 11 A.M. until 2 P.M. in the Sell It Again Sams Consignment Store Parking Lot. Located at 6939 Indiana Riverside Ca 92504. Corner of Mary and Indiana. Upcoming events were as follows – 14thAnnual Comedy Night on September 9, 2011 with doors opening at 7:00 P.M. Comedy starting at 8:30 P.M. a raffle will be offered and a chance to win a trip to Arrowhead. $50.00 per person. Event will be held at 3443 Orange St. Riverside Ca 92501. Well with time of the essence all this useful information could be put on the back burner for now, I was on a mission for my new forever friend. After walking and looking and trying to stretch my arms though every kennel and cage to be found whether Cocker Spaniel or not these dogs broke my heart, wanting to take each and every dog home with me. I was emotionally drained and knew I could not make a clear headed choice. I decided to exit and return after a good nights sleep. Knowing fully well that on my next visit more dogs and cats and kittens were sure to be up for adoption. Adding to the agonizing choice to only adopt one dog and keep a future thought to return at a latter date and adopt a cat or kitten. Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center is most definitely the Heart of the word Humane. A wonderful place to call home if only temporary for these animals. It is very obvious these animals are loved, and given the utmost care and affection until a forever home can be found. Adopt from the Heart
