I have known this charity from its inception. I have an appreciation of their business sense and budget management. The proof of their financial skills is exhibited in that, unlike other charities who are in crisis today and/or have shut down because of our economic uncertainty, this charity is still in business and works within their means. Every board member is a professional within their own line of work, and so together they complement each other on continuing to grow this nonprofit. Over the years I also enjoyed their innovative fundraising ideas, such as "Bark In The Park." It takes a lot of effort and persistence to manage a charity. I commend the whole Board in working together so well, and keeping their eye on their Mission of improving the welfare of animals.

Business practices, watching it grow, adopt animals.

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

create one nationwide program.

I have been with Animal Welfare Project for 4 years and have found it to run on a very professional level. Decisions are made with research and professional input behind them. I have done many events and the volunteers are committed to helping animals and educating the public on the needs of animals. My service dog/therapy dog particapte in school assemblies for Animal Welfare Project teaching children from kindgarden to 6th grade on kindness to all animals and "Be a Buddy NOT a Bully". The children are very attentive and enjoy seeing Ike and learning of what he does to help me stay independent. For anyone who has an interest in helping animals this organization is professional in every way. I highly recommend becoming involved.

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

seeing animals finding good and loving homes and saving lives.

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

We could save more horses and dogs and other animals. We could be sure they have medical care and re-training to find them forever homes. We could also do more educational programs for the public.

Ways to make it better...

I can't imagine anything.

In these hard economic times it would funding.

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

Animal Welfare Project is an orgaziation of doers. No one talks a task to death, everyone just gets to work.
