AnimalKind is providing wonderful services for the less fortunate animals and their people in North Carolina!

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

The low cost spay & neuter vouchers they give to poorer families to get their pets snipped!

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

Open a branch in every city.

I have volunteered with AnimalKind since 1998. I started serving on the board in 2010. I've watched AnimalKind grow in response to the needs of the animal community. It wasn't long after AnimalKind started THE $20 Fix program that I noticed more and more people were familiar with AnimalKind and the importance of its mission. By providing targeted low-cost spay and neuter vouchers, THE $20 FIX directly started saving lives while at the same time indirectly educating the community in general and the rescue community in specific on the importance of preventing pet overpopulation before thousands of homeless pets end up in shelters facing euthanasia. I've seen the understanding and emphasis begin to shift from sheltering to addressing the issue at its origin. Other non-profits as well as municipal animal services now turn to AnimalKind to gain understanding and focus. I am proud of and grateful for the work of AnimalKind.

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

When I was answering calls for AnimalKind, I was touched by the stories shared of how AnimalKind made it possible for families to keep and care for their pets. A single mom who was struggling to make ends meet. An elderly woman living with her cats on a fixed income but wanting to be able to care for her feline companions.

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

The only improvement I could see is having the funds to take low-cost spay and neuter statewide allowing the numbers to turn so that euthanasia isn't the standard method of addressing pet overpopulation.

I had become a volunteer for Animalkind but my emotions kept me from continuing. I would hold the depressed kitty's and cry into their fur. I wish that I were able to take them all home. No one else does what Animalkind does. They take in all abandoned and orphaned felines giving them all a second chance at life and love. Since I am unable to volunteer directly, I am able to give them donations of needed items as well as a monthly monetary donation. I did adopt an extremely lovable, now HUGE, black tabby named Avery. There was no fee for adoption and he had already been neutered and been given all of his vaccines. They are also tested for certain feline diseases and Avery was also microchipped. Everyone who loves cats as much as I do should give a donation to Animalkind to help with everything that they provide for these homeless sweethearts. I have 9 cats and all are from rescues. Open your hearts and give or adopt as many as you can take care of. You get so much love in return.

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

By adopting my HUGE MUSH Avery. We just love him to pieces. He is such a loving feline!

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

They do everything that they can for homeless kittys. If I were a millionaire, I would build them an enormous new facility for more cats with a large staff to help out.
