Mission:

To use direct-outreach methods: to identify and reach animals of ALL species in need to prevent companion animal neglect and suffering by offering free pet supplies and services to assess, humanely capture and mobilize wildlife that are injured/orphaned and transport them to highly-qualified licensed rehabilitators &/or wildlife vets that have a specality in the given species rescued; this includes transfers to accredited facilities out of state to educate pet guardians and the general public about companion animal issues and wildlife concerns to advocate for the enforcement of local animal ordinances to implore a change in human values and behaviors as they relate to the treatment of companion animals; this is the underlying foundation of our direct-outreach programs

At minimum 500 wildlife calls are assessed and responded to.

I follow ASK's exploits on Facebook. I like that they go "all out" for all animals and birds. They spend money on things that other rescues would regard as wasted--and make lives better in the process. I was particularly struck by their tenderness toward the old hen with the frostbitten feet, Henna. They spoiled her until the end, and then saw her gently "home". There needs to be more kindness like this in the world.

Wonderful organization that helps so many needy animals! No animal is ever too small or too difficult! Love their outreach program! I cannot personally thank them enough for the work they do helping others! It's absolutely inspiring!

A.S.K is always there when an animal is in need. No matter the day or time. It's such a relief to know that an organization such as A.S.K operates in a community such as Battle Creek. However, don't let that fool you as they will travel all over in order to save/rescue an animal in need. If you come upon an animal and are not sure what to do, just A.S.K.

Fabulous things from these people! Working double time in their community helping wildlife as well as chained up forgotten dogs.
And from various posts by Sophia, I have learned a great deal in regards to wildlife issues.
Always helpful:)

This group is amazing. They truly practice what they preach. About 9 years ago, I was living in the city. My dogs were in the fenced in back yard. ASK was doing some outreach in my neighborhood and came up to talk to me. They asked about my dogs and were happy to hear that they were inside dogs - just out enjoying the day. :-) Just two years ago, I adopted two senior dogs from them that were in desparate need - chained up outside 24/7 in the winter. I have donated items as well as cash when I can. ASK is a very valuable asset in our community!!

I feel like A.S.K. is constantly sharing an educational story about helping animals. From helping turtles across the road, to financial assistance in spaying/neutering dogs, I have no idea how they do everything that they do. Even with a background in animal health I feel I am regularly learning something new from them. What a powerful organization, doing right by all critters. THANK YOU.

The programs that ASK has in place to help teach the families to love their pets better is amazing. The fact that they continue to check in on the families and offer support and products and to keep everyone safe and improve their quality of life is amazing.

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.
