I came across Friends-In-Need in Aug. 2010 after reading about an opportunity to volunteer at their first 5K fundraiser. I contacted them that same day and even though it was only over the phone, I was welcomed with open arms, so to speak. Wanting to know more about their organization in general, I visited the Rescue a few days later and immediately understood why I was drawn to Friends-In-Need and their cause. What I found was an organization that genuinely and sincerely cares about the happiness and welfare of their animals. I was very much impressed with owners Kim and Karen O'Donnell, and their dedication to taking animals in, mainly out of horrific situations, who undoubtedly would not have survived otherwise. They know the story behind every animal rescued. It is their compassion that inspires me to continue with my volunteerism, both with Friends-In-Need and other nonprofit organization in Utah. I have experiences volunteering at the 2010 and 2011 Friends-In-Need Stampede 5k's, a local city Halloween contest, and visits to help feed the animals and maintenance around the property. In an effort to generate more awareness of the Rescue, I nominated Friends-In-Need to my employer last spring to be our next nonprofit service project . About 20 of my coworkers and I visited the Rescue to help repair fences and clean out the area for the pigs and rabbits. My coworkers enjoyed it so much that a second visit was made to Friends-In-Need to plant trees. I have worked with many nonprofits over the past few years and I feel Friends-In-Need Animal Rescue has been the most sincere in their cause and appreciative of the volunteers that they come into contact with. I highly recommend Friends-In-Need to anyone who loves animals and can appreciate a great nonprofit.
