“adopts dogs, cats, and many other animals out to good homes. ”
Many bad experiences.
I adopted a dog from them that was in horrible shape, underweight, ear infections, skin problems. She's been a wonderful dog for 16 years, but the vet was appalled that they released her in that condition. We've adopted many pets from them over the years, but when we called asking for help or advice to trap and neuter a feral colony at my Mother's house, the staff member who answered the phone suggested that we have the cats reported as nuisance animals and destroyed, instead. I'm so happy we found a more caring rescue group elsewhere that helped us.
sad but true
I know resources are limited, but I was ignored by staff and volunteers upon entering numerous times. When I did adopt, the Director was on hand and she was enthusiastic but no one called to follow up with me that I can recall. I do remember other rescue groups checking in with me post-adoption. I also called to report my neighbor's obviously ill cat that was left outdoors and seemingly starved. She gobbled down an entire 5.5 oz can of food and dry food, too. No one ever returned my call and unfortunately, I have not seen the cat since. I know it's a tough business, I don't know what can be done to improve things though.

Lake County Humane Society - Unresponsive
Their web page mentioned a pet loss support group. I emailed for info: bounced - no such email address. I telephoned: answering person had no info. I wrote a letter, including return address and phone number: no response.
