Reviews for Aide for Animals
Betsy and her husband Tom have been helping animals of all kind for probably over at least 30 years now. I have known them for 40+ years. It was Betsy who helped me start rescuing. Tom and Betsy have devoted their lives to this and shared their home and personal resources to help 1000's of animals in need and people in need as well.
Betsy and her organization really put the animals first, often taking on special-needs babies and getting dogs and cats that need extra TLC hale and hearty so they can go to their forever homes.
Mrs. Betsy and her volunteer crew at Aide for Animals are some of the most kind and generous animal loving people I have ever had the pleasure to meet. Mrs. Betsy's love for animals is evident the second you step foot onto their beautiful property. It is a great place to be a cat or dog at Aide for Animals! The beautiful cat sanctuary in the backyard is a haven full of lush and colorful greenery, a few fountains, shady patios and kitty cat houses and hammocks everywhere. If I get to be a cat in my next life, I want to live in that sanctuary, Catnip Village. I imagine that the amount of work and dedication required to run a nonprofit animal rescue is at times bewildering and overwhelming, but Mrs. Betsy's love and determination to help abandoned and sometimes unadoptable animals shines through everyday, day in and day out, all 365 days of the year! I support her and appreciate her in every way that I can because she and the animals deserve it! We adopted our little Nicki from her and we love him so much!
Always a way, a loving caring, that is extended to all. I foster and aid for animals helps me with food, advice in emergencies, I will go pick up an animal in crisis, it's staggering what lengths Betsy and her team,will go to help. Please support and donate to aid for animals.
Betsy does a wonderful job in tough situations. She has such a big heart. Aide for Animals needs all the help it can get.

I have known the founder of this organization for about 15 years, through animal rescue work. she is one of the most generous-hearted, patient, loving people I've ever met. Her reverence and respect for life has given me so much respect for her. There just aren't many people like her. The same goes for her husband and family. I have not been in the local area for seven yrs, so don't know the other current volunteers, but I do know the work this group does is of a level of emotional and physical difficulty that most ppl would find it hard to imagine. They are absolutely tireless. They draw their strength from the tremendous need of the innocent creatures they rescue & care for. I know they truly believe what they do is so worth it every time they look into the eyes of one of the angels living at AFA. Thank you Betsy for what you do for them, day in and day out....for what you've done for me over the years and what you've taught me by your example. You (and AFA) are making such a difference.
Betsy haas with aide for animals is the best.. When our organization needed help with both fostering and for some wise influential advice she was there for us more than once. She has given it her all and
given us her all, for the welfare of the animals. She has put our needs first and for that, we can't thank her enough. Betsy I have learned from you and hope that I will be as compassionate and caring as you no matter what the situation is..
I have known Betsy Haas and Aide for Animals for over ten years and I have never known a more dedicated organization. She and husband Tom have saved hundred of cats and dogs and for that matter - rabbits and baby animals as well. Her cat colony is simpatico. They feed together side by side and there is nothing but harmony. She is their Pied Piper for sure! They rely totally on donations and money is always tight. She needs volunteers as much as donations so anyone local who can spend some time with her and her cats and dogs is sorely needed. Imagine doing all that yourself? There are so many chores I can't imagine how they do it. So if you are able bodied, have a checkbook or need to adopt, this is best place on earth!!!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
i can never repay Betsy and Aide for Animals for taking in my Persian kitty, Kismet, when I needed to find her a new home. Eventually, she found her fur-ever home in Florida and although I will always miss her, I know that she's happy today thanks to Betsy. Thanks, Aide for Animals, for giving me priceless peace-of-mind!
Betsy Haas, with Aide for Animals, helped us when no other rescue or sanctuary would. A while back, we found some stray kittens behind our office, and Betsy took them in when we could no longer care for them. And again, just last week, she helped us when we caught a male feral cat at our office. She helped set up the TNR (Trap, Neuter, Release) at her vet. The cat, now named Copper, has been successfully neutered, ear tipped and released back into his free roam environment, and gets fed at our shop! Betsy Haas and the volunteers at Aide for Animals truly do care about the well being of the animals, and do this work for the love of animals!
