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.

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!

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!

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

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!
