Our Non-profit Animal Rescue organization "Tescatame" recently held a MASH style spay-neuter clinic for 400 dogs and cats in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, in partnership with Caribbean Spay Neuter and the team of Vet Drs., Techs and volunteers who travelled to the DR for this purpose, paying for their expenses and donating their hard work and expertise for the benefit of the animals in need.
WA2S sent their team to Punta Cana, they paid for all their expenses and accompanied us during the clinic, filming the different stages of it and interviewing the Vet Drs, Techs and Volunteers.
We at Rescatame Punta Cana (www.rescatame.org) are very happy about the videos filmed and produced by WA2S during our October 2016 Punta Cana spay-neuter clinic and feel that they are helping spread the word about our organization and the work we do to help the stray animals in Punta Cana.

Noticed they posted some incorrect information with a video. Others commented for the same reason. They would only reply with answers like "No, we wouldn't put that". Even with copying and pasting from their own message they would admit to no wrong doing and just tried to belittle with snide comments in return. They shouldn't be telling a story if they don't want to use correct information. Zero integrity.

This is not a valid review. This review was placed here by supporters of the non profit, Michigan Anti Cruelty Society or MACS that did not like a video we posted showing the use of incinerators to get rid of un wanted dogs. MACS incinerates a great many dogs, and by the protests we filmed, nearly all the Pit Bulls that enter their 'shelter'. Our video coverage is of the protesters sharing their experiences. It can be found at the official WA2S Films YouTube Channel and is titled: "Man Brought Back to Life By Dogs Returns Favor Saving Pit Bulls From Horrific Incineration." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XDp5YO3merY

It's great to see people are out there, advocating and bringing awareness to the public about the homeless dog population in some of our major cities, as well as the neglect suffered by so many from their owners. Great job!

Although there are many charities aiding animals in need of rescue, WA2S goes beyond the animal. The video's are great educational aids, world wide. They demonstrate more than just getting stray from street to home. Their interactiveness with community and outreach is barr-none!! Education is key in any project, this group has a formulation that may end homelessness in companion pets, they are with following and contributing to!

Animal related Charity with community interaction and Accountability of projects, World Animal Awareness Society is always my recommendation when others ask who to donate to.

I am an Animal Rescuer and Advocate for the voiceless in Detroit, Michigan. I have had the pleasure of working with Tom and Deanna in the arena drawing attention to the plight of the neglected, abused, discarded, and those of us that love and fight for them. The role of WA2S is detrimental in today's world. Is it up to us, as humans, to draw attention, advocate and educate to end the pain and suffering to the creatures of this world. They balance out every aspect of these important issues in their array of documentaries and endeavors. I speak for many Animal Advocates when stating how grateful we are for the candid honesty, indepth perspective, and most of all compassion for telling the stories of the voiceless. Because they need to be heard, and there are far too few humans who speak for them.

The information, combined with live action , real time recover/rescue of dogs with this organization is bar none!
It would be nice to see more done by this group. They combine real life issues, including human interactive stories as well as the canine crisis in America like no other!
They're more than an asset to rescue, but rather an asset to Society! Really need more like them, or mor of them!
Best stuff out there!

I am continually amazed at reach the World Animal Awareness Society has achieved. The work they have done in Houston to shine a spotlight on the ever increasing stray animal crisis we are facing has and continues to be invaluable!! Their efforts to capture our struggle as well as those facing similar issues across the country and around the world IS making a difference. Their stories are wonderful, important, beautifully filmed and told, and 100% real. We need more. I am proud to support WA2S!!
