Home For Life - Review about Animal Shelter from Minneapolis, Minnesota
1 of 3

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 severed as the bullet went right through, and as a result she became paraplegic. I was in middle school at the time and my... Read more

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 animals and very courteous to me. The sanctuary was clean, the food bowls were filled & the water was fresh. I saw no signs... Read more

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 needs animals, requiring a great deal of special care. Providing this kind of care must be very difficult, and the cost of doing... Read more

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 managed sanctuary that takes in cats and dogs who have behavior issues and/or disabilities that would make adoption very difficult.... Read more

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 to the door and would have to go out constantly because he couldn't hold it. I spent way more money than I really had to spend just...

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 employees starting every week. When employees are let go, they don't always get their last paycheck. I wonder how long this... Read more

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. No chance given or anything. Fired through an email on her way to work. Now she has shown up at the second daughter's second... Read more

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 incompetence. She failed to meet deadlines to get information to us and then blamed us when things were late. She feels the need... Read more

HFL is a terrible place,the owner is also a terrible person, who should have her brain evaluated if she thinks she is helping the animals she "suppossedly" takes care of, because she doesnt take care of them!! They are her pay check!! And that is all she cares about! If one of the animals there is sick but has many sponsors she will self medicate that animal without taking it to the vet to... Read more

HFL Animal Sanctuary in Star Prairie, WI paints themselves to be a beautiful loving home for animals who are sick and/or unadoptable. Their website shows pristine tile floors, animals happily lounging, and healthy dogs and cats. However, upon entering the sanctuary (which you cannot do unless you are a prospective employee, current employee, or give them money) you will see a far cry from what... Read more
