I am an Animal Rescuer and Advocate for the voiceless in Detroit, Michigan. I have had the pleasure of working with Tom and Deanna in the arena drawing attention to the plight of the neglected, abused, discarded, and those of us that love and fight for them. The role of WA2S is detrimental in today's world. Is it up to us, as humans, to draw attention, advocate and educate to end the pain and suffering to the creatures of this world. They balance out every aspect of these important issues in their array of documentaries and endeavors. I speak for many Animal Advocates when stating how grateful we are for the candid honesty, indepth perspective, and most of all compassion for telling the stories of the voiceless. Because they need to be heard, and there are far too few humans who speak for them.

This organization goes above and beyond to help animals in need. I have seen them at work and they excel in helping where they are needed, never an obstacle in their path. I take pride in saying i know this organization.

Brilliant documentation of animal related issues, unbiased, yet creatively told, through the lens of a camera. The cameraman, Tom McPhee, has an eye for the art of pictorial storytelling. His favorite sidekick, Deanna Vollano, keeps the organization running smoothly, as she coordinates the organizations activities and volunteers. Their mission, unbiased reporting of animal related issues, has an underlying goal to bring humans together, and inspire an opportunity for solutions. The World Animal Awareness Society gives hope to those that have no voice, and a possibility to save the dwindling habitats and animal populations around the world.
It was a great honor and privilege to volunteer for WA2S, to contribute and to be part of the team. It was my good fortune, as Volunteer Coordinator, to have a varied task list, returned with lavish appreciation and praise upon its completion. Deanna and Tom are tremendous, kind, flexible, patient creative, inspirational and humble human beings, who have created an organization that just might be able to open the eyes of this world’s inhabitants and preserve the beauty and life of this planet for future generations to come. It is my hope to continue to work with them in the near future.

The information, combined with live action , real time recover/rescue of dogs with this organization is bar none!
It would be nice to see more done by this group. They combine real life issues, including human interactive stories as well as the canine crisis in America like no other!
They're more than an asset to rescue, but rather an asset to Society! Really need more like them, or mor of them!
Best stuff out there!

I work with a group called Forgotten Dogs of the Fifth Ward in Houston, TX. We help the abandoned and stray dogs of the Fifth Ward, and help educate the residents of the area. We were fortunate to be able to work with World Animal Awareness Society as they filmed us out in the field. Their work is so important in order to educate the general public about the horrendous stray animal problem we have both here in Houston and in the US. I am so thankful that this group of dedicated people are as committed as we are to raising awareness and working to end the needless suffering of animals. Working with them was an absolute pleasure and I look forward to doing it again in the future.

World Animal Awareness Society does an amazing job at bringing to light things (such as the massive number of stray dogs in US Cities) that others may want to keep hidden. In addition, they use this information to help raise funds for other organizations that are working on fixing these plights.

I am continually amazed at reach the World Animal Awareness Society has achieved. The work they have done in Houston to shine a spotlight on the ever increasing stray animal crisis we are facing has and continues to be invaluable!! Their efforts to capture our struggle as well as those facing similar issues across the country and around the world IS making a difference. Their stories are wonderful, important, beautifully filmed and told, and 100% real. We need more. I am proud to support WA2S!!
