This wonderful non profit organization is the best! We have made items for them to auction or sell and they have always been the nicest and most comfortable people to be around. I helped them put up a shed and loved working with Michael. He was very knowledgeable and I asked him to help me with my outdoor enclosure area for my two cats and it did take a while but he kept coming back and doing more to make it complete. Now my kitties can run around "outside" and be comfortable. This non profit deserves the highest of awards!

I love this rescue as I donate every month faithfully. I have received my catnip and Kitty Kickers in about a week and my kitty loves them both.

Love, Love, Love this non profit. I volunteer and I can't think of a more rewarding way to spend my time. I am a nurse and very busy all the time but I would not think of not coming in and helping out with whatever I can. I have bathed dogs and cats, I learned a way to bath testy cats, I have walked dogs, cleaned up the kennels and cat areas, I have worked in the office, I have interviewed adopters, brought dogs and cat to see their new homes, you name it, I have done it. We do not put any animals to sleep. They truly care about all animals. They go out of their way to help every dog and cat that is brought in. Even though the place they have is small and they are trying to get a larger place set up, they sure do make well use of their area.

My kitty is going to have furbabies and I was about to leave for 2 days and they watched my cat since she is known to have problems when giving birth. The babies get stuck. Michael and Madonna both advised me to get the cat altered so I agreed to do so after these furbabies were born. The furbabies were born a day later and Madonna called and left me a voice mail saying the babies have been born and they are ok. I was so relieved that I received her call as I was so worried about the momma. When I got back in town, Madonna told me one baby was stuck and she helped it along so all the babies made it. I am so very thankful for Madonna and Michael. They truly care about animals. I got all the furbabies adopted out and I did get the mother cat fixed.

I am the organizations dog groomer and love working with them. Sometimes they have the most horrible looking dogs and cats but I manage to make them look very beautiful with their new haircuts and after bathing them, they do look fabulous. I love this organization and I have volunteered with a few different organizations but there were always behind the scenes problems going on and I really did not like working with them. They were demanding and completely did not care about my life or my son. This organization does care 100% about me, the pets and my son. My son has come in and met just about everyone here and loves coming here to see al the people and animals. Thank you for running such a wonderful organization.

My dog was sick and I called It's Meow or never and they advised m e to take my dog to the vet. Thankfuly I did just that and my dogs life was saved. Since then my dog has passed away but I adopted another retriever and love this dog so much. It sleeps with me too. This rescue crew is the best in the world. It took my some time to find my dog and I never heard any bad words, no disrespect to anyone, even people that called about giving up a pet. They were so kind to everyone. A+++++++++

I got my two dogs from this organization and love them to pieces. Madonna even gives me advice about my dogs because they are pit bulls and she is very knowledgable and loves the dogs too. If I ever get any more dogs, I am coming back to this place. Love it there and I can come in and bath my dogs too.

I am still volunteering with them and love it. Everyday they help animals. Most recently, Madonna went to help a hoarder home with too many animals and I was there to help collect the cats. Madonna was so nice to the person hoarding the animals. It seems like everything goes well when you are nice and show a person you are actually helping them and everything went well. The "hoarder" still calls and asks if so and so got adopted and Madonna responds to her and let's her know the animals are getting adopted and they are doing good.

I have been working with them for approx. 4 years and have been satisfied with everything. They do not kill anyone there. They are always feeding, caring for an animal. They really do screen adopters too including a criminal check. They have their act together. I have adopted two dogs from them too

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

Nothing.

I was hired as a volunteer to help with filing and other office things and while I worked there I ended up adopted three dogs. One dog has passed away from old age but the other two are doing great. I love It's Meow or Never! Keep up the good work.

I adopted my dog from these people and they were so wonderful to me and the dog. They really understood this breed of dog (pit bull) and I can always call them if I need to to ask them advice. They gave me starter heartworm and frontline medication when I brought him home. I am going to be adopted another dog very soon from them. Can't give them enough kudos.
