I find it odd that this "sanctuary" blocks and deletes any questions on their Facebook page when inquiring about an animal. Why would they not put the best interest of the animal first? All animals are here for life? No adoptions? 200 animals! HUGE RED FLAG! This...

Too many animals and not enough help. The help does not stay because the owner Lisa has terrible issues. She talks behind her employees back to other employees amongst other t...

Home For Life - Review about Animal Shelter from Minneapolis, Minnesota
In 2008 my dear kitten, peaches, of 7 months was shot (most likely by a neighbor) while we were at church one Sunday afternoon in November . She and her brother were outdoor cats since we lived in an old farm house with land and woods. She lived but her spine was...

I had been a sponser of Peaches at Home for Life -- I am so sorry that this happened to you. Peaches did pass away in April 2014 due to several urinary tract infections. She...

I have been a financial donor to HFL for many years. After learning about the negative comments directed at them I was compelled to visit their sanctuary. I wanted to see for myself if the allegations were true or not. I found the staff to be very caring towards the...

Visiting one time you do not see how Lisa is with her employees. Check out how many people have worked there and are not there now. She is a nice person so she does not have e...

I don't understand the negative comments on this site, and believe they are made by disgruntled folks who don't care much about facts. The place is clean, the activities organized, and the animals are obviously well cared for and happy. The animals at HFL are special...

My complaint is about the obvious bias of the people posting on this web site. As I read these complaints, I see people with personal grudges and people who think animals with behavior issues and/or disabilities are better off dead. Home for Life is a beautifully...

I don't care who this person is but they are most likely not 100% incorrect. I had a dog years ago that had a bladder problem that made it impossible for him to hold his pee so he could never be housebroken. He learned to go outside to potty but would leak on the way...

It is not the animals fault. The owner the problem.

If you truly cared for the dog more than your pride, you would not care what they said about you and would still donate monthly knowing they DID what you wanted . . . gave the...

Employee turnover is quite high at HFL. They are paid $8 an hour with the promise of $10 an hour after 100 hours. Employees are let go when they reach the point of $10 an hour with the reason that Lisa can't afford to pay so many employees, even though there are new...

Lisa LaVerdiere fired both of my daughters just recently. One because Lisa listens to, and promotes gossiping between her employees about each other at HFL. The second one was fired because Lisa didn't feel comfortable having her work there after firing the first one....

We did a substantial amount of work for Home for Life Animal Sanctuary. The owner is disorganized and unrealistic in how she handles work. She does not respect other people, does not communicate well, does not take ownership for her shortcomings, blames others for her...
