Reviews for All Species Kinship

Rating: 5 stars  

This group is very proactive in improving the lives of dogs that live outside. They provide food, new dog houses, collars , treats and toys to improve their lives. They educate owners and the public not only about dogs, but also wildlife. I have learned much from them.

All Species Kinship does some pretty awesome things in Michigan. They assist dog owners with food , spay/neuter, light weight cable tie - outs, Igloo dog houses, flies-off, toys and treats. More importantly, they educate dog owners about compassion for animals and work hard to get outdoor 24/7 chained dogs integrated indoors with the family. This is all done in a kind , patient fashion. A.S.K. Is a 100%. Volunteer organization. No one gets paid. It is funded strictly by like -minded donors. I appreciate all that these volunteers do , in very extreme weather conditions, on behalf of the animals. State-wide wild animal rescue is also a part of what A. S. K . does. My eyes have been opened and my heart has been changed because of this wonderful organization. All Species Kinship is changing the world...one animal at a time.

The people with ASK make a world of difference in our community. So many needless deaths would happen without the food, doghouses, hay, and education that they provide. Wonderful nonprofit.

If you need any advice at any time about any type of animal call A.S.K. Some one will always come up with the answer or a suggestion. We the people and animals of Battle Creek are very lucky to have these folks. They never stop working with the ones they know about and they never stop looking for those who need help. Thank You from deep in my heart. Makes me proud to live in a town with such a wonderful group

I had a question real late last night about one of my dogs, i didnt know who to talk to about her, so i thougjt about my news feed and what i see this organization do for all these dogs, by chance i sent a message hoping for someone to answer. I instantly got an answer and lots of reassurance that my dog will be ok, so who ever i talked to late last night and even early this morning, i have to say thank you for being so helpful, it was simply advice that i needed and i guess comfort. Thanks for all the hands on things you do for the animals and the advice and education for the pet owners. Thanks for everything.

A.S.K. is an amazing group. They are so knowledgeable and they are extremely active and proactive in helping all animals. They are caring and interested and hardworking. I love the work they do to help hurt animals, both wild and domestic, but my favorite thing they do is go into the community to find the sad and lonely dogs that are chained, cold, hungry, and sick and HELP THEM. They recently were able to help and rescue a dog that was chained 14 years!! These animals would continue to suffer without a voice if not for A.S.K. They are fantastic.

Whenever we find a stray dog or injured animal ASK always knows what to do and say. I have never been dissatisfied with their service, they are doing such wonderful things.

I have been following A.S.K via their facebook page for quite some time. I cannot say enough for what these people do. They earn no pay. What they do they do out of the goodness of their hearts and their love for all kinds of animals. Some of the pictures I have seen {the first initial picture when they first visit a client and their pet} would tear and rip at your heartstrings. Those pictures are usually followed up by their after visits {and what they have done to help the animal in need} which makes my heart happy that there are people like these who really do care and do what they can to help all animals in need. Many many times I have said over the months " I wish I had lots of money cause I would definitely donate it to A.S.K" Unfortunately I don't have lots of money, but I do know a woman who has a yard sale every year for this cause, and she asks for household donations for the yard sale. Every penny she makes off the sale goes to A.S.K. I donated a huge amount of household items to her with hope and prayer that she would make a nice amount of money to donate to this awesome cause. They really are a great bunch of people doing all they humanly can to help these animals. God Bless everyone of them!

This nonprofit is exceptional in every way. They leave nothing to chance when it comes to the animals they serve. They not only educate, but offer services and supplies for free to ensure the comfort and safety of animals, and then they follow up with them at a later date.

Without A.S.K. and their dedicated team of rescuers, we wouldn't have our sweet girl dog. Their tireless work saved her from a lonely and painful life, and our family is extremely grateful. I cannot say enough positive things about A.S.K. and the work they do.
