I have been involved with many animal organizations over the last decade. I have seen the best and worst. One of the stand out org's is AWP. AWP is run in an organized manner, prepared for growth and ethical in every decision that they make. One example of this is when they desperately needed a horse trailer. They got one. At first it seemed perfect, new looking, even flashy. Before transporting horses in it, AWP had it cleared structurally. The beautiful trailer did not pass. The organization could easily have sold it to another unsuspecting purchaser. But opted not only to junk it, but to have it dismantled so that no one else could sell it and endanger the welfare of a passenger. This kind of integrity is what AWP is all about. Because the organization has the forsight to purchase veterinary insurance they have been able to provide premier health care to thier charges. this is not a wing and a prayer outfit. AWP is a well planned group with careful attention to ethics in everything they do.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The care of Windsor the horse.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

It's careful attention to ethics.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

smart and caring, devoted.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help animals and people in a mutually beneficial way, serve to educate, help to train humane officers. all things that they do now, but with more money they could do it on a larger scale.

This is a charity with a well thought out mission to rehabilitate animals and introduce them back into the community, benefiting both the animal and the community. I have been the Volunteer Coordinator for the last eighteen months and know of the effort that goes into getting volunteers to keep this all-volunteer organization operating. All volunteers receive a packet of Standard Operating Procedures and are required to understand EEOC and IRS compliance documents. The accomplishments of this group are performed by a group of dedicated volunteers. Many hours of time are donated to keep this organization running and able to support the animals in residence.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

animal rescue, community activism, and elementary education.

I started working with the agency last year and was given a very specific task to accomplish. Although it has taken longer than expected, the support I received while challenged with limited resources, was very positive. I see a tremendous amount of support for this organization by the president who lives and dies to keep it going.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing several animals placed; reviewed the contributions by other members; dedication to Windsor with a significant number of challenges.

I was introduced to AWP because of a connection I have with a horse jump company. A visit to their web site convinced me that this was an organization which clearly mirrored my own belief about animal welfare and the benefits derived from retraining "unwanted" horses and dogs so that they could become valuable, contributing members of society. This is an organization whose goals, when reached, will benefit both humans and animals.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

In the number of dogs and horses they have found new homes for without the benefit of a retraining facility. If they can accomplish what they have with just an office and a telephone, the sky's the limit once they have a proper facility.

Ways to make it better...

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

not change a thing.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The feeling of accomplishment that is derived from the completion of even the smallest task and the people I have met.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

All of the people I have met through my connection with AWP are welcoming, friendly and totally committed to AWP's goals.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

save a lot of homeless or unwanted horses and dogs from euthanasia or a life of abuse. It would enable these animals to be retrained to become valuable, contributing members of our society.

Ways to make it better...

I can't imagine how my experience could have been improved.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The lack of adequate funding is the biggest challenge facing this organization.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I'm thrilled to be part of AWP and feel that my contribution, no matter how small, is making a difference.

I have a background in finance and therefore joined Animal Welfare Project as an active member of the Development Department, with a concentration on Charitable Giving. After working with the president I am impressed with the level of professionalism and dedication to the mission. I plan to have a long term relationship with this non-profit and recommend this group to anyone with an interest in supporting the mission.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Be at the forefront of education regarding: Re-training hundreds of homeless animals instead of being killed due to over population; they'll both serve the public and be re-homed. Also would save hundreds of acres as Open Space instead of being developed
