Reviews for Aide For Animals
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!!!

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!
Aide for Animals is such a wonderful rescue and sanctuary! Betsy devotes every minute of her days to the needs of all of the cats and dogs there. I am so blessed to have met Betsy when she took in some kittens that I found, and I've been volunteering weekly ever since. I've never met a more kind, caring, compassionate and dedicated person in my life! I'm proud to say that I'm a volunteer and donor at AFA, and plan to be for the rest of my life. With that being said, AFA can always use additional volunteers in many capacities and always needs donations to help with the continued (sometimes forever) care of the cats and dogs. There are also many beautiful, sweet, loving cats, that would love to be adopted, but if that doesn't happen, they have a forever home at AFA. Betsy treats every single animal like a family member! Please show your support for AFA!!
Aide for animals is a great rescue operation. They have taken two dogs we rescued from the street and have placed many cats and dogs in forever homes. They do a great job and and need donations to help with the cost associated with helping all their animals
Aide for Animals Sanctuary is focused on helping unwanted, abused or disabled cats and dogs. All cats are combo tested, spayed or neutered and completely vetted. All dogs are tested for heartworms and completely vetted, spayed or neutered. Any animal who is not adopted will live out the remainder of their lives with TLC at AFA Sanctuary. Many are disabled, geriatric or considered "not attractive and unadoptable." I am grateful for the opportunity to serve and dedicate my energy to this fantastic organization.
I have probably never met someone who works as tirelessly as Betsy Haas at Aide for Animals. She and husband, Tom, take in abused, lost and homeless animals, treat them medically, feed them, love them, and find them loving homes. They have dedicated their lives to this! This is truly a compassionate organization and I trust them wholeheartedly.
Aide for Animal is a wonderful charity! They have a beautiful cat yard for all the cats to be in and a special kitten yard for the baby cats. They take in animals that are disabled or have special needs and work diligently to find them forever homes.
My daughters and I have volunteered with Aide for Animals and have seen the loving care given there. And when my father passed away, there was a stray mother cat and kitten at his house that we needed to find a home for. Aide for Animals took them in when no one else would.

There are so many great things about Aide for Animals that I could take pages to tell you about them. I will hit on the main functions of this rescue organization in this review. We are the only animal rescue group in this area that not only takes stray cats and dogs and gets them ready for adoption , but also is a retirement home for unadoptable pets, such as the old, disabled, or chronically ill.
I have been on the board of Aide for Animals for several years, and in that capacity, I get to see the struggle that we go through every day, trying to bring in enough donations to keep these animals vetted, fed, and comfortable. We have had several fund raisers since I have been involved, and although they help immensely, we still work tirelessly to put out newsletters, brochures and use word of mouth to get our name further into the community than it already is.
I share the added honor of being an Adoption Coordinator and Critical Care Unit with one of our other volunteers, Rachel Nowlin Jones. As Adoption Coordinators, we make sure that the pets that are up for adoption on our website or on Petfinder go to homes that suit them as individuals and not just another cat or dog. We go into the homes and interview the prospective owners, and in most cases, there is a perfect match between animal and proud owner.
Our critical care units are just that: A place in our individual homes where we take gravely ill pets that need a lot of special attention, such as daily medication, fluids, constant monitoring, etc. When they are well and eating good, we take them back to Aide for Animals and put them up for adoption.
I can't say enough about Aide for Animals. Even if I weren't so closely bonded with the people, animals, and overall good that we do for the community, such as teaching that pets are members of our families and that spaying or neutering is one of the most important things an owner can do for their pet, I would still be a volunteer and do what I could to make sure that this wonderful organization continues to help all of the animals that come into their care.
Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?
How much of an impact do you think this organization has?
Will you tell others about this organization?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
I have been fortunate enough to know the founders of Aide for Animals for a lot of years. In the past few years, I became first volunteer then board member.
Aide for Animals is a place for homeless, helpless animals. Betsy and her family work tirelessly to ensure that all the animals are vetted and disease free before they are put in "general population" and they provide individual "kitty condos" for the cats and all are well loved.
Of course, there are more new animals than there are adoptions, but when someone does adopt a fur baby, they are matched with the sweet animal that will make their life complete.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing the reactions of people who have adopted from Aide for Animals, as well as seeing the overall health and well being of the animals who reside therein.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
figure out a way to bring in a lot more donations. Aide for Animals depends on donations to stay afloat. I would like to figure out a way that we could reach more and more people, tell them the story of Aide for Animals, and have them be guided by their hearts to help us.
