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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
