Animal Friends of north central WV takes good care of their animals and makes sure that they are adopted out and not put to sleep. We have been supporting this organization as they have proven to be reliable and conscientious in their deeds. They also have a local store that we donate items to that also benefits the animals.

They are an all around good organization that makes us feel comfortable giving our donations.

Thank you for looking out for needy animals.

Animal Friends of North Central West Virginia is a non-for-profit no-kill animal sanctuary. The organization is lead by a wonderful person, Cynthis Lucas, who opened her heart to helping animals in need. The sanctuary currently has many rescued cats and dogs and even a rat saved from a neuroscience department. Some of the other animals that got to live at Animal Friends included: a dear, a pig, opossums, etc. All animals go through a vet examination before they can enter the premise. This is a precautionary measure to protect the animals that are currently residing there; those that require special attention are isolated from the rest to aid their recovery or to generally help their transition. Cynthis makes frequent visits to the local kill shelters and continues to pull out the animals that are qualified as the least adoptable. She is also constantly planning and carrying out ideas that help to make the sanctuary the best it can be for the residing and prospective animals. The organization is benefited by many wonderful volunteers who are true animal friends. Their time and input seem to be always appreciated by Cynthis, and certainly reinforced by the animals. Cynthis, as well as other selfless individuals that all have become a part of this wonderful, and quite frankly, one of a kind organization are all an incredible inspiration and hope not only for animals, but also for people that strive to believe.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I've only been volunteering at Animal Friends for less than a month, and even if I had to stop today, this has already been an invaluable experience that has given me the confidence to strive to make a difference within my own life and to inspire others to do the same.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

At last, I've come to believe that indeed "no act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted" (Aesop).
