I really appreciate how active the members of the New Fairfield shelter are in raising public awareness for animals not only in its own shelter, but in rescue sites all over the country.

This organization has volunteers who are very dedicated to helping the animals in need in their area, and these people also are very fun and welcoming to newcomers. I participated in a fund raiser last spring, just as I was visiting a relative who is involved with the organization. I was welcomed and had a fun time, all the while knowing it was for a good cause.

I am very appreciative of all that the NFSAW does for the needy animals and our community. Not only do they help with the welfare of uncared for or lost animals, but they also contribute to their community through other recycling activities for cell phones and computers. You can find the donation boxes at various places around town in New Fairfield and Sherman. I am very thankful to the NFSAW, as I know that the volunteers work very hard, dedicating their own personal time for an important cause. It takes a lot of work to organize and manage the various fundraising and community events required to help the NFAW shelter survive, such as the Holiday Boutique at the Senior Center and the wine tasting event held in Sherman.

I am friends with Suzanne Poscich Glynn who has told me the most wonderful stories of animal rescue and foster care during her tenure as a volunteer at the NFSAW. As a Dog and Cat person myself, it makes me really happy to see people like Suzanne, a busy professional during the day preparing our youth for life as a teacher spend her precious spare time to help these beautiful animals that are in need of TLC, a meal, a place to sleep and eventually a permenant home. It makes me feel guilty that I don't have the time to get involved myself, but seeing the passion in which she brings to our discussions about the animals that have been saved from abuse and abandenment, has had a profound impact on me personally. The work that Suzanne and the other volunteers do at NFSAW is pure selfless love and kindness.

Thanks guys - Monty Nebinger

I personally give to many charities and the one I love the most is New Fairfield Sherman Animal Welfare. Of which I have attended many fundraisng events and donated funds, the best I can afford to do. It is wonderful to see the community rally together to support these orphaned animals. The most recent event I attended was at the New Fairfield Senior Center where there were art & crafts, baked goods, art by local artists/residents, and many auction items that I spent/donated my money to. Not to mention the amount of volunteers and the incredible job all the volunteers did. Unfortunately, it never seems that there are enough funds raised for the NFSAW to address all that's needed to support these orphaned animals & help find them homes. I certainly hope that the NFSAW is fortunate enough to be the recipient of this very generous grant. Thank you.

Who is better than the NFAS? The humane caring and loving of the staff there to the animals is unique. The animals look happy even in their circumstance. If it weren't for their abundant support I would be able to volunteer there on the weekends, but they have too many volunteers. That says it all for me. You go NFAS! Your community loves you and all your paws!

This animal shelter has an amazing group of volunteers who are such dedicated people. Each year they spend countless hours which extend into months working together on various crafts for their annual fund-raising boutique. They love the animals and tend them well. Their generosity and selflessness should be congratulated by all the community.
