Reviews for A Chance For Bliss

Rating: 1 stars  

While I wholeheartedly supported them at one time and told many friends about them, I wouldn't touch them with a 10-foot pole now. They pretty much imploded a few months ago and have yet to disclose the full story to their donors & supporters.

This is such a unique and wonderful place for abused, neglected, or abandoned animals. Most of these animals are not adoptable and have special needs. Some are at the end of life's journey but still have some living to do. They give so much love and are so grateful for the kindness and devotion shown to them. My 20 year old daughter was born with Autism volunteers for 2 hours a week there. She talks about A Chance For Bliss all week long.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My Autistic daughter volunteers at A Chance For Bliss 2 hours a week. She attends wih an adult supervising her. I personally have given a generous donation because I know it is going to good use.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Deanna and Woody. They are so dedicated and loving. They are determined to give quality of life to these animals that have been severely neglected or abused

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

All awesome!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Continue to give quality of life to the animals that were neglected, abused or abandoned.

Ways to make it better...

Nothing could be better except to help these wonderful, dedicated people.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

They work 7 days a week, 12 hours a day and don't have time to find funding. They need money to care for these animals.

One thing I'd also say is that...

These are sincere, hard working devoted people. Not only do the animals benefit from this sanctuary, but so do the volunteers. There are disabled volunteers as well as nondisabled volunteers. This is a loving, nurturing environment.

A Chance For Bliss is a forever home for senior and special needs animals. Currently, there are 21 horses, 17 small dogs, and other critters that live at the farm. The owners, Dee & Woody have hearts of gold and everyone involved are such wonderful caring people. It's a wonderful place to just be. Many people have said how peaceful the animals seem to be and they have seen rapid improvements in quality of life and health in animals that come to the farm in dire straits. There is not enough that can be said about the love that surrounds these animals and for the volunteers that donate their time. God bless the Bliss!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Not sure what this means, but by bringing together a community and sharing the commonality of caring for animals.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

change nothing

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Not enough words to describe. It's been a positive experience throughout.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Caring

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand! To have many more acres to take in as many animals that they can!

Ways to make it better...

We had more money donated to give the animals evyerthing they need to thrive.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Money! It's very expensive to run the farm and donations of all sorts are deeply appreciated.

One thing I'd also say is that...

There isn't just one thing to say, it's a lovely place with kind and warm individuals. Everyone cares for the animals as if they were their own.
