CFLAR is a wonderful organization. You can see it in everyone that volunteers there how much they love what they are doing. The animals are happy, healthy, and kept clean. The rewards that you get in return from these animals far exceeds anything that you can experience. Keep up the good work CFLAR. I hope you raise the money to move to Forever Florida and teach the public more about the good work that you do every day! Thank you

CFLAR is a wonderful organization. You can see they are very well taken care of and loved even more by everyone that volunteers there. Standing in front of these mmagnificant creatures, you can feel the love they have for the volunteers there, and even see it in their eyes. The animals are happy, healthy, and kept clean. The love between everyone just overflows and can be felt by anyone who visits there. I volunteered with them for many years before moving too far to help. If you have the chance to volunteer - I HIGHLY recommend you do so. The rewards that you get in return from these animals far exceeds anything that you can experience. Keep up the good work CFLAR. I hope you raise the money to move to Forever Florida and teach the public more about the good work that you do every day! Thank you
