Reviews for All Species Kinship

Rating: 5 stars  

This group is amazing as they are out in all kinds of weather in the worst parts of town. This does not faze them a bit in their work as it is where they are needed. Providing food,water,and toys to chained dogs and educating people to see the reasons why their dogs should live inside. Taking on injured wildlife knowing what is needed to be done and do it. They are amazing people and many animals have survived and were given a better life due to their work.

I have called A.S.K. in the past when I found an injured gosling. They were amazingly helpful and super prompt in getting back to me, especially since it was on a Saturday. Someone came out to pick up the goose as soon as they could and kept me updated about his health. I love this organization and all that they do for so many different animals!

A.S.K is the definition of a top-notch organization. They are all about the animals and will do anything they can to help. They have helped me personally more times than I can count on two hands! The world is a better place because of A.S.K!

I came across All Species Kinship about a month ago.  I had found 2 domestic ducks at a local park, one of which had a broken bill that I was afraid wouldn't be able to survive the winter without assistance.  I called numerous people/organizations in my area for help without any luck.  I called All Species Kinship and left a message- not really expecting to be called back after the luck I had up to that point.  I was wrong!  They not only called me back that same day, they said they would take both ducks, no questions asked!  They even met me half-way (I live about 2 hours away from the sanctuary) to pick up the ducks and take them to the sanctuary.  They took both ducks to an avian vet the very next day and have provided updates as well as pictures of the two ducks for me.  This is just one of MANY great stories of A.S.K.  All Species Kinship has changed and continues to change the lives of SO many animals thanks to your donations and the wonderful A.S.K volunteers. 100% of your donations go directly to the animals.  The All Species Kinship volunteers do all of the work they do out of the goodness of their hearts because of their love for animals.  We need more organizations like All Species Kinship.  They truly are angels and do amazing work!

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.

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.

I have worked with ASK on 2 separate occasions in regards to wild animals. Their response was very fast and extremely helpful. However, I was most impressed with how knowledgeable they are. I am also in awe of their online/facebook presence. They go above and beyond to educate the public and what and what NOT to do when wild animals cross their path. I can say I have personally learned a lot about wildlife that I never knew just from following their facebook page. A lot of that I have been able to share and educate others.

A great organization with a lot of dedication!!! And not just dedicated to wildlife but also reach out to the unfortunate and unwanted animals that they run across in their journeys. Truly a voice for the voiceless!

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

Not a thing!

We had a dog living down the street that was never taken care of. My husband would leave food out and she knew where to come to get fed. When they started chaining her out we would go down and feed her and make sure she had water everyday. She was very scared and didn't know how to react to someone being nice to her. We heard about ASK and called them. They brought her straw for the dog house and left her treats. When we were finally able to talk the owners into giving her up ASK took her and she is now living a life like she deserves. They still have her and and she has a friend to keep her company. If any organization deserves to be noticed and funded it is this one. They are excellent and have helped many many animals out. We are very grateful to them for what they did for our neighbors dog. Please if you can help them out don't hesitate. Your money will go far to help them help our furry friends

I would change nothing unless it would be able to help them more.
