I had a bunch of feral cats at my workplace and Cindy helped me with them and take care of this overwhelming problem. She helped me with multiple field adoptions. I could have not tackled this problem without her and her advice!

I adopted Radar and later Echo. They knew I wanted a companion for Radar and notified me when they found Echo. Great people to adopt from that really care for the cats and dogs.

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

I will help them raise more donations so they can help more cats and dogs.

ASAP is a wonderful organization. It is amazing what 3 dedicated woman and a host of volunteers can do. Donations of food and litter have reach 3/4's of the United States including Puerto Rico and St. Croix. Many thanks to Purina Pets for People donating so much food and litter. Dozens of truckloads of food go out each month. In addition they spay and neuter almost a thousand cats per year and donate much needed medical services to the local community.

Having adopted 2 kittens from ASAP, I could not be happier. They were healthy and well adjusted to family life and continue to delight us with the antics and loving attitudes.

It was also good to know that ASAP finds homes for those kittens that are better suited as 'barn cats' to help control the feral cat population.

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

Make sure they have enough funding and support to continue their work and be able to better showcase the animals they have needing forever homes.

Being a part of a foster family it is so wonderful to have a shelter that is dedicated to help us support the kittens we take in and is always there to answer our questions.

ASAP does such a wonderful service for our community. I have seen them many times at the local Farm & Fleet having an adoption day. Talking with Susan and Cindy of ASAP really makes my day.

Both of them were once affiliated with Helping Paws, where my mom, Joanne Anderson was the President for many years. Mom had the greatest respect for them both and I know she is in heaven looking down, seeing how ASAP works.. and is proud to have known them.

On the days at Farm and Fleet when I would bring my Dad along... Susan and Cindy were both so wonderful to him. So friendly and respectful to an old man of 80 plus years. I will always be grateful for that.

This is a very, very worthwhile nonprofit. I highly recommend ASAP for all those loving homes who would like to adopt a new kitty as a family member.

I went to look for a good partner for my lonely cat and I couldn't be happier with the kitty that I got. The staff is extremely helpful and nice, their job is wonderful.

ASAP is a wonderful organization. I support their work helping cats in my community and feeding shelter pets across the country.

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

Make more people aware of what they do.

This is a wonderful program. I am a volunteer and help feed a colony of the very sweet cats. Although they are outdoor cats they each have their own personality and are very friendly and are all anxiously awaiting when I arrive with their food. Their life wouldn't be possible without this program. This program has had them all fixed as to help aid in decreasing the population of homeless animals. They have a wonderful network of people who with everyone's efforts would make for a very sad ending for many of these animals. Animals that all they want is food and water and no living creature should have to go without these basic simple needs. I am proud to be helping these animals. They live together as they are family to one another and I adore them. The program makes it possible for them to have a quality of life they would not otherwise have.

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

More volunteers to help with emergency situations
