save-a-life is the way to go.
I recently (3 monthes ago) got a dog from save-a-life. It was a smart move. The lady we got Otto from was very tentive and helpful with his info. The dog was dumped out on I-95. He is a very loving dog, she did a nice job with create training him as well. He was up to date on all shots and we also recieved papers/ voucher to get him nautered when he becomes of age. I have no regrets getting a dog from them, and look forward to using them again soon.
I adopted a dog from them that bit my daughter. I returned the dog and sent a complaint. They called me in regards to the complaint and stated that I was a bad mother, didn't take care of my pets, and that my husband was a terrible man just because I was upset that the dog had bitten my daughter. I recommend if you plan to get a dog go through the humane society. They are cheaper, their dogs are completely tested and unlike save a life they cover the full procedure for nuetering/spaying. Not to mention that you can usually get good discounts through the humane socuety on their futre shots. Most humane societies also provide free micro chips or less than 15 dollars...save a life don't, yet charges 50 dollars more for the pet.
