Oh dear, it's the same semi illiterate Tameside supporter writing false reviews again.

“The need to tell the truth”

Written on: 04/05/2015 by Danny255 (1 review written)

I am dismayed at reading some of the more recent negative reviews however I have noted that the 'spelling' is bad in both reviews so I assume they are from the same camp. I visit Millstream regularly and have been a supporter for many years. The renovations that are ongoing to improve the shelter and therefore improve the quality of life for the animals and the staff are excellent. Millstream is always clean and tidy. The animal pens are spotless and the litter trays and cat bowls and always… Read Full Review

“Fantastic!”

Written on: 15/11/2014 by lpKrause402 (1 review written)

I visited millstream animal shelter looking for a cat. I found the staff there to be very pleasant and enthusiastic about what they do. It was clear that they cared about the cats and other animals there. As i walked around I saw the resident cats and cats in pens were in clean surroundings with plenty of food and water. I loved the cat lounge, it looked very cosy and the resident cats had plenty of soft cosy chairs and cat beds to lounge out on. Lovely place. The price was very good for money… Read Full Review

“animals suffer”

Written on: 04/07/2014

This charity is not friendly to customers looking for an animal. The one aspect I could not get over is the video link when me and my husband called down to see the dogs and even the excuses of them not getting stressed out does not diminish from the lack of eye contact necessary. The staff were not helpful I feel they are more of cat lovers than anything else and we felt sorry for the dogs, it was very upsetting. Some dogs live their lives out there because they are not shown to prospective… Read Full Review

Yet another 'review'. I have also checked the Charities Commission website, this is available to everyone, and at no time has this charity had £880,000 funds. Now why would someone want to stir up trouble, jealousy perhaps or a disgruntled exemployee? If in doubt about my comments go to Charities Commision website, search for Millstream Animal Shelter and in the left hand side of the page click on 'accounts'. The figures are shown for 2010 to December 2014. I have no reason to lie but others may have.

“A cat's paradise/”

Written on: 28/08/2012 by JessicaN (1 review written)

I have adopted two cats from Millstream, one just before Christmas 2010, one in March of this year, and I was delighted at the set up of the place. The cats have plenty of room to roam free and are all clean and well cared for. When you approach, the whole set up doesn't look too special but when you get in, you can see how the cats really own and rule the place and the human assistants are just there to cater to their every need. The assistants get to know every cat personally and can tell you… Read Full Review

“Our Best Friend”

Written on: 13/02/2012 by manmasv17 (3 reviews written)

We adopted a dog called Jenny from here 11 years ago - best thing we ever did. Fantastic people, very friendly and helpful and we had no regrets at any time about the dog we chose. We were advised well and this helped us with the choice of dog - and it worked. Unfortunately we have just had to have Jenny put down because of cancer, however, if and when we ever need another dog Millstream will be our first choice… Read Full Review

“Great rescue centre”

Written on: 13/07/2011

Unfortunatley we have found ourselves back there a little prematurely as the last beautiful cat we got from Millstream unfortunately got hit and killed by a car. I was a bit concerned that if I asked Millstream if we could adopt another cat, we might be refused as they may have thought we didnt do a good enough job caring for the one we lost, however they were really lovely and said these things happen. I wanted an indoor cat this time round, and as luck would have it there happened to be the… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/03/2011

I got a cat from here around two months ago. Staff really helpful showed us around and asked us about our background information so they could find a cat that suited us. We ended up with a perfect cat and because it was six months old the staff were able to identify the personality so it matched us. The staff took pride in their work and the shelter was large and open so the cats were free to roam. Animals were treated really well as were the visitors… Read Full Review

what a wonderful place. I have visited a couple of times. been shown around. Pussycats wonder freely in the nice weather obviously content and happy to be there.
the new pens are fantastic.
and the rooms with tv screen so one can view catsand doggys sitting around in a home environment is just purrfect.
They obviosly love all the animals they had bunnys there too.
when my relative had an emergency and needed to rehome a little dog, they were the only ones willing and able to help.

Written on: 23/01/2011

I adopted my 18 month old (now 19 month!) cat from Millstream in the middle of December 2010 - she has been with me for 6 weeks now and is a fantastic companion, brave and affectionate and brilliant company.

The lady who runs Millstream showed me round and pointed me in the right direction for a cat that would suit me - she could not have been any lovelier, and clearly had masses of affection for the cats I was shown.

Millstream, despite having limited funds, is an incredibly warm and lovely… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/12/2010

I dropped off some cat food recently and asked why the dogs weren't on show. There is a live video link to the kennels to prevent the dogs becoming distressed by constant streams of strangers visiting. If you want a dog, the staff will discuss the type of dog you would like and then bring potential dogs to a quiet area so you can meet them. You won't hear dogs barking at Millstream because staff coordinate arrangements carefully to minimise distress to the animals. The animals' welfare is the… Read Full Review

The staff at Millstream work very hard to care for the animals they have and to take in any strays they can that come their way and find GOOD homes that are SUITABLE for their animals. The welfare of the animals are the main concern and priority. They do an excellent job! Well Done and Thankyou Millstream!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/08/2010

We bought a kitten at the weekend. I found some of the staff friendly, but some a little abrupt. We were sold the kitten thinking there were no problems, because we were not told about any. However as soon as we brought him home we realised he had the runs. By Monday we had him at the vets. He is seriously underweight and dehydrated. He has had cat flu at some time and should not have been given worming tablets because he is underweight!!
The women that work at the shelter profess to know what… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/07/2010

At Millstream, I was shown around by a very pleasant lady and chose a very nice cat. The staff were very helpful and even phoned a taxi for me to get home with the new cat.

This is the second cat I've had from Millstream and on both my visits there I was impressed by the facilities and by the dedication of the staff. They are very caring people doing excellent work in re-homing abandoned animals… Read Full Review
