Review from Guidestar

I am a volunteer at Helen Woodward's Animeals program and have been for 2 years. Prior to this, I volunteered at Club Pet. I have found my niche at Animeals. I love the program and, with the exception of 1 paid employee, the program is 100% supported by volunteer time. The program is a companion program to Meals-on-Wheels - when people get their food, Animeals provides food for their companion animals. I have been VERY happy in this program. What you should know about volunteering at Helen Woodward - they need committed people so you have to attend a training class that lasts several hours and is only available 3-4 times a year. They fill openings - so sometimes those who want to volunteer for a particular program don't get to work for that program - yes, they turn down volunteers. But don't you want your time to be used efficiently? Just because they can't use you in that program at that time doesn't mean there won't come a time when you will be needed. I for one am glad I stuck with the organization- I found my niche contributing to the welfare of animals in a no-kill environment. Is it perfect? Are all the program managers great all of the time? No, but I don't volunteer to have people be nice to me - and their jobs aren't the easiest in the world. I've heard working for a non-profit can be challenging at best and difficult at worst. So, I'm sorry to hear not everyone has had a good experience, but I have and I hope it continues to be beneficial to the welfare of animals.

I called to ask about a volunteer position with Helen Woodward, but was cut short. "No, I think we are good for that area. Sorry bye..." Ummm... Are there any other areas where I you may need volunteers? Can you have some courtesy. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL. I am dissappointed, but glad I didnt waste my time volunteering there
