Brilliant documentation of animal related issues, unbiased, yet creatively told, through the lens of a camera. The cameraman, Tom McPhee, has an eye for the art of pictorial storytelling. His favorite sidekick, Deanna Vollano, keeps the organization running smoothly, as she coordinates the organizations activities and volunteers. Their mission, unbiased reporting of animal related issues, has an underlying goal to bring humans together, and inspire an opportunity for solutions. The World Animal Awareness Society gives hope to those that have no voice, and a possibility to save the dwindling habitats and animal populations around the world.
It was a great honor and privilege to volunteer for WA2S, to contribute and to be part of the team.

The work that Tom, Deanna and the rest of WA2S does is incredibly inspiring! I consider myself lucky to have had the chance to work with them on a few projects in the past. I can't recommend supporting WA2S enough in any way possible. They are making a difference every single day!

It was a great honor and privilege to volunteer for WA2S, to contribute and to be part of the team. It was my good fortune, as Volunteer Coordinator, to have a varied task list, returned with lavish appreciation and praise upon its completion. Deanna and Tom are tremendous, kind, flexible, patient creative, inspirational and humble human beings, who have created an organization that just might be able to open the eyes of this world’s inhabitants and preserve the beauty and life of this planet for future generations to come. It is my hope to continue to work with them in the near future.

I work with a group called Forgotten Dogs of the Fifth Ward in Houston, TX. We help the abandoned and stray dogs of the Fifth Ward, and help educate the residents of the area. We were fortunate to be able to work with World Animal Awareness Society as they filmed us out in the field. Their work is so important in order to educate the general public about the horrendous stray animal problem we have both here in Houston and in the US. I am so thankful that this group of dedicated people are as committed as we are to raising awareness and working to end the needless suffering of animals. Working with them was an absolute pleasure and I look forward to doing it again in the future.

I have been working with Hope Clinic for over 7 years. There are a number of different programs available to people and the staff relates well to each one of them. There is a lot done to help meet the needs of emergencies as well.

Tom reached out to me after I won a video PSA contest on wildlife safety and awareness. He commissioned me to produce several videos and creative projects. He was very kind and clearly very passionate about his work. I'm glad I was able to be a part of such an amazing organization. I will never forget my time with the World Animal Awareness Society.

I met Tom and learned about his group - the World Animal Awareness Society - during a screening of one of his documentaries. After watching The American Opera: The Greatest Pet Rescue Ever! I knew I had to meet him and learn more about his work. His passion to objectively share with others the plight of animals and their problematic relationships with humans inspired me to help his organization. I volunteered on his most recent project called American Strays.The goal was to go to different quadrants in Detroit and count stray dogs. This information was tabulated by Statisticians at the University of Michigan and shared with policy makers to allow everyone to better understand this problem and create solutions that make sense. WAAS is a non-profit that I am proud to support.
