To use direct-outreach methods: to identify and reach animals of ALL species in need to prevent companion animal neglect and suffering by offering free pet supplies and services to assess, humanely capture and mobilize wildlife that are injured/orphaned and transport them to highly-qualified licensed rehabilitators &/or wildlife vets that have a specality in the given species rescued; this includes transfers to accredited facilities out of state to educate pet guardians and the general public about companion animal issues and wildlife concerns to advocate for the enforcement of local animal ordinances to implore a change in human values and behaviors as they relate to the treatment of companion animals; this is the underlying foundation of our direct-outreach programs
Transforming human values and behaviors one family at a time; when A.S.K. first started people did not know what "straw" was. Now, nearly every dog we find outside has straw and the requests for straw pour into our hotline! At minimum 600 24/7 outside dogs are reached annually. At minimum 500 wildlife calls are assessed and responded to.

Reviews for All Species Kinship
A.S.K.'s direct outreach program is a godsend for all animals. So many animals would have continued to suffer and die had it not been for the services that this group provides! They are selfless in their mission to reach these animals no matter the weather conditions or challenging situations and follow through with what ever is needed to give these animals the chance or betterment in the life they deserve!!!!!!!
Honest, helpful and caring people. I asked for help and every time get the fast response and help.

About one year ago I was introduced to the A.S.K. Group because of some domesticated geese released in the wild. My husband and were beside ourselves with worry for these birds that we nothing about. I was told of ASK and their mission and made the call. Within a short while I received a calla and the ball was in motion to help capture these guys. It took quite a bit of work, time and effort, but the rescue happened. Well during the time of saving the geese I looked at the website and saw what hero's this group of volunteers are. I have been a supporter ever since. Sophia And I are now friends and I feel honored to be a small part.
This group is amazing as they are out in all kinds of weather in the worst parts of town. This does not faze them a bit in their work as it is where they are needed. Providing food,water,and toys to chained dogs and educating people to see the reasons why their dogs should live inside. Taking on injured wildlife knowing what is needed to be done and do it. They are amazing people and many animals have survived and were given a better life due to their work.
ASK goes the extra mile to help the animals and those trying to provide for their pets. The most impressive thing is that they help all animals, not just dogs and cats! When I sport them financially, I know the funds are being maximized and going for direct outreach. These people are out in the trenches doing the hard work, I am honored to supper them!
I follow ASK's exploits on Facebook. I like that they go "all out" for all animals and birds. They spend money on things that other rescues would regard as wasted--and make lives better in the process. I was particularly struck by their tenderness toward the old hen with the frostbitten feet, Henna. They spoiled her until the end, and then saw her gently "home". There needs to be more kindness like this in the world.
I have called A.S.K. in the past when I found an injured gosling. They were amazingly helpful and super prompt in getting back to me, especially since it was on a Saturday. Someone came out to pick up the goose as soon as they could and kept me updated about his health. I love this organization and all that they do for so many different animals!
Community outreach, rescuing wildlife, fielding calls to help people with wildlife issues, and never ending educating of the public about domestic animals and wildlife; A.S.K. is one of the best non-profits out there helping animals (and in the case of domestic animals their guardians as well). Director Sophia and her team never take a day off from helping and giving. Truly an amazing organization. I can't say enough good things about All Species Kinship.

I watch ASK do the things that I wish I could do myself. They reach out to the dogs that cant be saved, the owners that cant be bothered, to educate and bring a positive change. Animals need people ASK.
