Rating: 5 stars  

Sophia and all her volunteers are the most amazing group people who never cease to astound me. They are out on the streets 24/7/365. I'm proud to be even slightly associated with them. All I can say is thank you for ALL you do.

About one year ago I was introduced to the A.S.K. Group because of some domesticated geese released in the wild. My husband and were beside ourselves with worry for these birds that we nothing about. I was told of ASK and their mission and made the call. Within a short while I received a calla and the ball was in motion to help capture these guys. It took quite a bit of work, time and effort, but the rescue happened. Well during the time of saving the geese I looked at the website and saw what hero's this group of volunteers are. I have been a supporter ever since. Sophia And I are now friends and I feel honored to be a small part.

ASK goes the extra mile to help the animals and those trying to provide for their pets. The most impressive thing is that they help all animals, not just dogs and cats! When I sport them financially, I know the funds are being maximized and going for direct outreach. These people are out in the trenches doing the hard work, I am honored to supper them!

Community outreach, rescuing wildlife, fielding calls to help people with wildlife issues, and never ending educating of the public about domestic animals and wildlife; A.S.K. is one of the best non-profits out there helping animals (and in the case of domestic animals their guardians as well). Director Sophia and her team never take a day off from helping and giving. Truly an amazing organization. I can't say enough good things about All Species Kinship.

I watch ASK do the things that I wish I could do myself. They reach out to the dogs that cant be saved, the owners that cant be bothered, to educate and bring a positive change. Animals need people ASK.

I have followed this organization on Facebook over the years. The good that ASK performs and the selfless dedication of its volunteers overwhelm me. I can't say enough about what ASK does for the otherwise forgotten, of ALL Species -- from dogs on chains 24/7 in some hidden backyard to an abandoned goose in a public park to an injured turtle on a highway. A simply remarkable organization that I cannot say enough about.

A remarkable organization. Directly helps ALL species of animals, as its name suggests. Its outreach to dogs kept outside 24/7 is what truly has impressed me. Volunteers literally patrol neighborhoods looking for dogs with inadequate shelter or who are otherwise in questionable conditions. Volunteers will knock on doors and offer free food, straw, shelter, chews, etc., not to mention education. So many of these dogs so found are later taken inside by the guardians and become members of a family, all because of ASK .

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

More vans with more staff/volunteers having the same philosophy as current volunteers and staff, with the funding to go with them.

ASK is a HUGE voice for the animals in our community....selfless, tireless and deserving volunteers continue to be a valuable resource concerning local wildlife, educating owners about proper care and most of all..providing insurmountable relief to animals in distress :-)

All Species Kinship is a marvelous and unique group totally dedicated to improving the lives of all sentient beings. They provide veterinary care, including spay and neuter, to low-income pet owners as well as distributing toys, shelter, and food. They provide education and motivation for owners to interact with and enhance the lives of their pets. Along with this street outreach, they offer a rescue service for injured wildlife and operate a large animal sanctuary. They are a wonderful group and it is a privilege to live in an area with such an extraordinary organization. We give them as much financial support as we possibly can and are happy to feel that we are contributing in a small way to this excellent non-profit.

I love A.S.K., I wish I could do more for them and I wish people would do more for them, They deserve so much for what they do in the community and most of all for the animals.

All Species Kinship does some pretty awesome things in Michigan. They assist dog owners with food , spay/neuter, light weight cable tie - outs, Igloo dog houses, flies-off, toys and treats. More importantly, they educate dog owners about compassion for animals and work hard to get outdoor 24/7 chained dogs integrated indoors with the family. This is all done in a kind , patient fashion. A.S.K. Is a 100%. Volunteer organization. No one gets paid. It is funded strictly by like -minded donors. I appreciate all that these volunteers do , in very extreme weather conditions, on behalf of the animals. State-wide wild animal rescue is also a part of what A. S. K . does. My eyes have been opened and my heart has been changed because of this wonderful organization. All Species Kinship is changing the world...one animal at a time.
