At minimum 500 wildlife calls are assessed and responded to.

A.S.K. is an absolutely amazing nonprofit that works tirelessly to protect, save, and rehabilitate all species. And the tremendous work they do not only touches animals lives, but human lives as well, especially through their outreach programs. They are true animal heroes that are making the world a better place for all through kindness to animals!

I have two separate reviews. Earlier in the summer, I emailed for advice for a friend who had a turtle lay eggs in her yard. What to do? A prompt reply indicated to do nothing and leave the area undisturbed. That is what they did. And one day the eggs and turtles were gone.
Another time I asked about the legalities of treats being poisoned on a wetland area. Again, a very prompt response with information.
This is a great group. I follow the Facebook page, which is constantly reminding us of the proper way to interact with wildlife when it appears inured. I was also able to share information on the hazards of feeding bread to duck ks at parks with out local paper. They took the information and turned i t into a great reminder to the public to feed the Ducks properly.
The outreach program is great too. I would advise anyone to support this group!

They were very quick to respond to my dilemma of an escaping pit bull in the neighborhood who was scaring all the neighbors. With their help and guidance, the owners have fixed their dog and the fence it was escaping from. This could have ended in tragedy, but now there is hope.

A.S.K. Is amazing, they are willing to help any animal, such compassionate people. I am in a different county and wanted to help some dogs in Barry County where I live. I was given very inspiring ideas and they were about safety first which I thought was top notch. They are about the animals!

Changes would be to have more resources available for the organization so they could help all animals that crossed there paths and would have no worries....

This is the best charity organization out there. They actually help people take better care of their pets. They go in and repair dog houses, give better tieouts so dogs are not on heavy chains, they will spay or neuter pets, help with food and water, and toys! All the donations go to help the animals, not in their pockets! They are wonderful!

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

Find a way to bring in more money to them so they can do more work for the animals!

Through All Species Kinship, my family was able to adopt Buddah who is a boxer/pit mix. Buddah has helped my 10 year old niece with special needs learn responsibility for caring for animals.

A.S.K is always out in the streets keeping the best interests of animals in their hearts.

I am on FB quite often and happened to read about ASK-I really liked what I read and have even commented a few times about programs they have.
I am about to launch our third year of a local fundraiser we have here in Lansing called B.F.F. (Best Friends Fest) which raises money for Ingham County AnimalControl & Shelter.
After reading every post on FB, I decided to call A.S.K. and invite them to do a presentation at our fundraiser in July. Sophia graciously accepted and we are now looking forward to "working " together!
