Reviews for Southern Pines Animal Shelter

Rating: 5 stars

I've been volunteering at the shelter for about a year now and I really enjoy working there. The staff are nice and take the time to connect with you and explain to you what help they need done. I also enjoy how there are more opportunties to volunteer than just at the shelter. There is the spay/neuter clinc and fundraising events. A few months ago, I showed my shelter pride by helping them out in a fairy tale themed parade. I've volunteered in other places, but I continue volunteering at the Shelter because the people there make me feel like I am one of their own.

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

the community where so many people appreciate free shots given and the lower cost of spay/neuter surgeries.

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

be exhausted by everything they do

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

They thank me for the work I've done even if all I have done is a small task.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly, helpful, appreciative, enjoyed working there

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

give free health care to the pet owners that could not afford it and build a bigger shelter to help more animals.

Ways to make it better...

I'm not sure

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

money

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

I really do enjoy volunteering here

I have volunteered at the Southern Pines Animal Shelter for several years in a variety of roles. I started by assisting with the shelter's animal adoption program at our local PetSmart. I then began working along with other volunteers at the SPAS low-cost spay/neuter service program. We started with a two day per month cooperative service through a statewide alliance. After two years of demonstrating the need and support for such services, SPAS opened a four day per week low-cost spay/neuter clinic. This successful effort is a clear demonstration of the organization's focus on long-term solutions. This focus is paired with an absolute committment to providing humane and responsible care for every animal at the shelter.

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

educating the public about the plight of animals in our community and what everyone can do to help.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the inspirational example of other volunteers and staff.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

caring and committed.

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

provide free spay/neuter services for every animal in our community.
