There are so many great things about Aide for Animals that I could take pages to tell you about them. I will hit on the main functions of this rescue organization in this review. We are the only animal rescue group in this area that not only takes stray cats and dogs and gets them ready for adoption , but also is a retirement home for unadoptable pets, such as the old, disabled, or chronically ill.

I have been on the board of Aide for Animals for several years, and in that capacity, I get to see the struggle that we go through every day, trying to bring in enough donations to keep these animals vetted, fed, and comfortable. We have had several fund raisers since I have been involved, and although they help immensely, we still work tirelessly to put out newsletters, brochures and use word of mouth to get our name further into the community than it already is.

I share the added honor of being an Adoption Coordinator and Critical Care Unit with one of our other volunteers, Rachel Nowlin Jones. As Adoption Coordinators, we make sure that the pets that are up for adoption on our website or on Petfinder go to homes that suit them as individuals and not just another cat or dog. We go into the homes and interview the prospective owners, and in most cases, there is a perfect match between animal and proud owner.

Our critical care units are just that: A place in our individual homes where we take gravely ill pets that need a lot of special attention, such as daily medication, fluids, constant monitoring, etc. When they are well and eating good, we take them back to Aide for Animals and put them up for adoption.

I can't say enough about Aide for Animals. Even if I weren't so closely bonded with the people, animals, and overall good that we do for the community, such as teaching that pets are members of our families and that spaying or neutering is one of the most important things an owner can do for their pet, I would still be a volunteer and do what I could to make sure that this wonderful organization continues to help all of the animals that come into their care.

I have been fortunate enough to know the founders of Aide for Animals for a lot of years. In the past few years, I became first volunteer then board member.

Aide for Animals is a place for homeless, helpless animals. Betsy and her family work tirelessly to ensure that all the animals
are vetted and disease free before they are put in "general population" and they provide individual "kitty condos" for the cats and all are well loved.

Of course, there are more new animals than there are adoptions, but when someone does adopt a fur baby, they are matched with the sweet animal that will make their life complete.

The Great!

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

seeing the reactions of people who have adopted from Aide for Animals, as well as seeing the overall health and well being of the animals who reside therein.

Ways to make it better...

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

figure out a way to bring in a lot more donations. Aide for Animals depends on donations to stay afloat. I would like to figure out a way that we could reach more and more people, tell them the story of Aide for Animals, and have them be guided by their hearts to help us.

I have been on the board of Aide for Animals for over a year now, and have been the Adoption Coordinator for that long, also. Before this, however, I volunteered for Betsy and Aide for Animals. The wonders of the animals that I get to see when I am on the grounds of this wonderful organization are priceless. Every little paw that reaches out to me, every sweet face that I get to kiss, reminds me of how much good Aide for Animals does for our community. What were once stray, abused or neglected and starving animals are now well fed, well cared for, and most important of all, well loved. I am so very grateful to be a part of this wonderful nonprofit organization. We are a part of the bigger picture of how the world should be.
