We are a nonprofit shelter in the Pacific Northwest. We have received a great deal of support from the ASPCA over the past several years, including grants to help us improve our cat housing, transport cats from other shelters, and find homes for special needs cats; as well as resources and information through ASPCA Pro. We are also pleased to partner with the ASPCA on relocation of at-risk cats and kittens from the Los Angeles area up to our shelter.
We are a small municipal shelter with a very dedicated staff of employees and volunteers and fosters. We have worked with the ASPCA for a few years and have had nothing but positive experiences with all the employees. We have been fortunate to receive grants to support our adoption efforts. The grants are easy to navigate and the people are wonderful to provide resources and help. The website has training and educational resources that have been a great help to us over the years. We recently received $4,000 for Rescue Ride Transports and will continue to look to the ASPCA to help us save lives.
I'm the director of a small (but mighty) humane society in MN. The ASPCA has been a great resource for us in many ways. We've received grants from them for a variety of projects and we also learn about successes other shelters are having with programs so we can apply them to our organization. I have them on speed dial!
I adopt hard-to-place cats: senior, blind, handicapped in some way. And i saw a 12-year-old cat on the ASPCA's website. I went there, carrier at the ready, but it turned out this one fellow needed to be an only cat. But the staff there was very helpful and understanding, and instead of my leaving disappointed, showed me some other deserving cats. And so i met Apricot, a 13 year old with a heart murmur, a sweet disposition and, having come from a hoarding situation, ready to join a home with just a couple of siblings! And it's all thanks to the patience and understanding of a very informed and compassionate staff. And the building itself is a marvelous place -- nothing like the sad, dark shelters of the old days. This place was light and clean and filled with enthusiasm, with quiet rooms set aside for those animals who weren't quite as social. Really lovely.
Our small non-profit rescue just received a ASPCA and Subaru Share the Love Ride for the Rescue grant. What a blessing this is for our organization and the animals. The grant process was very straight forward and relatively simple to navigate. We were notified of the grant in a short period of time.
The ASPCA is a wonderful organization, who are known and acclaimed for helping animals. We thank them for their generosity and continued work on helping animals and organizations in need.
Our small non-profit animal rescue organization just received a $4,000 grant from the ASPCA and Subaru "Share the Love" Rescue Ride. Kudos to the ASPCA for making the grant application process so very user friendly. And, for also looking out for the small rescue organizations too. Many thanks of gratitude from all the volunteers & animals at the Humane Society of Dover-Stewart County. Will post pictures later when we receive our Adoption Trailer.
The ASPCA provided us with an emergency grant that helped the 26 dogs we rescued from the flooding in South Carolina! We could not have done it without them. The process was user friendly, the staff was professional and a pleasure to work with.
Great experience with patient, knowledgeable staff and volunteers. We left with the two most adorable kittens and couldn't be happier.
The staff was great. I had previously worked at ASPCA a few years ago and knew the difficulty in getting pets with handicaps and deformities adopted. I had recently had one of my cats pass away, and went there looking for a " special needs" cat, knowing that he or she would fit in with my other pets. I looked at a few, but fell in love with this little Tripod. The staff was very helpful in explaining what he would need, and getting me through the adoption process. He turned out to be a great little guy. He made friends with my others quickly and is a real love bug. I was so glad I adopted him. The staff there helped me make a great choice. I highly recommend going to ASPCA to adopt. They won't rush you through a decision. They make sure you get what is appropriate for your level of experience.
Staff was incredibly patient and caring. Excellent facility. Adorable animals!! - highly recommend
