He showed great concern! – A year ago I brought a very ill stray black cat to be seen by Dr. Wilcox. He showed great concern for this kitty. I had not seen such compassion and dedication in my 30 years of rescuing animals and dealing with many veterinarians. She continued to improve under his care and was able to be adopted out after her recovery! -Carolyn D.
My Buddy – I adopt my Buddy dog from here years ago. He was one of the strays they have and had been used for dog fighting. Buddy passed on May 20 of complications of a stroke. Best friend a mom could ever have. Helped me take care of my 2 small kids. I don't know what the place is like now, but then they were very nice. Strays came be great pets, trust me. Love you forever Buddy.
Should not have the city contract for strays – The place is way too small for holding strays and try to find homes for them. I wonder if the public is aware that, if they bring in their pet for boarding, the boarders are next to strays.
Not that there is anything wrong with strays. However, since there is no medical care given to the strays by intake, the risk of picking up a contagious decease, is a possibility. I would not board my dog there, and the prices are comparable to any much better managed facility. I have seen very sick dogs, without any treatment, just waiting to be put down after the five mandatory days are up. How can they??
The "business" of sheltering and placing homeless animals is very profitable, since they have no extra expenses for personnel or maintenance of the building.
Everybody does everything.
The people handling the adoptions are unfamiliar with the animals and I could never figure out what method of matching they are using to be sure animal and adopter are the right match.
Also, the fact that all transactions pertaining to adoptions, are cash only, raises some questions, as well as not being computerized.
I find the staff to be uninformed, rude, without an ounce of compassion, disorganized, in short bad.
The city of Syracuse should have their own shelter. If a town like Camillus can, why not Syracuse
Great place – I love them and what the other people said doesn't sound liek the place we go. They are very friendly and we have adopted our pets from them as well and have never had a problem at all.
good place – I've read the reviews on this page, and it does not sound like the place that I go to for my dog. The receptionist plays and talks to my dog. I adopted my dog through them last year and have continued to take my dog their for all her vets needs. I have not had a bad experience there. I think this vet has a great staff that plays with your pets.

The Worst Vet Ever – I brought my dog in for her yearly shots and exam today. Instead I received only shots, and a bill for an exam which never occured. As an added bonus, my docile golden retriever was placed in a muzzle, because of her "dangerous behavior". Dangerous behavior apparently includes quivering in the corner, afraid of a gruff and extremely unfriendly veterinarian. He even had the nerve to threaten to impound my dog if she snapped at him (something she had never done in any of her 5 visits to him or anyone else in her 4 years). Only later did I find out the real reason my dog was so scared. Apparently she could sense something I did not know....that this vet HATES dogs and actually makes part of his income by killing strays for the city of Syracuse after only a 5 day hold. Only bring your dog here if you want her to be mistreated and you wish to be threatened and overcharged.
