Westside Rescue is an amazing group dedicated to helping the homeless with their pets by supplying food, immunizations, helping spay/neuter, etc. They hold an annual Thanksgiving dinner for the homeless on G street in Fresno along with a clothing drive and immunization clinic. Amazing people!

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

the work they do with the homeless and how much they care for the pets. I went with a group after the Thanksgiving dinner in 2010 to the tents in which some of the people live to talk to them about their animal's health and how they can help.

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

help them do more to raise funds to help their cause. They need help bringing more awareness to their organization.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?

Life-changing

Did the organization use your time wisely?

Very Well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?

Definitely

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

They are such great people that volunteers are made to feel like family. Maybe they can hold an orientation prior to going down town one Friday night every month or two to recruit new volunteers and walk them through the process.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Absolutely. I had never seen the poverty and need for these services first hand until I went with Westside Rescue. It's a life changing experience.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Blessed. I am so lucky to have a home, a car and a job. I have family and friends to help me through hard times. Some of these people don't have any of those luxuries.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2010
