My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Denkai Animal Sanctuary, Grover, CO, USA
I too have experienced the change of hands of this facility not just once but 3 times. Aside from the financial aspect, the people who try and or excel at these facilites, their hearts are in the right place. I have seen some very selfish humans come through those doors to give up animals. The reasons are many, but some should be ashamed of themselves. The man hours are endless in this type of work with upkeep, care of the animals and the day to day issues that occur. All of the staff has done the best they can with what they have and what is donated. It can be a little chaotic at times, but so is grocery shopping. The main thing is the well being of the animals.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I have been a volunteer, with my husband for over 4 years. I have watched the change of hands and improvements that have been made at both facilities. There have been 100's of hours put into the facility grounds and buildings. Sadly the key to any non-profit if funding and volunteers. The owner has dedicated all of her time and life to building this organization from nearly nothing to where she is today. Just think one persons dream, has saved lives. What did you do today?
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
The change I would make is to recruit more loyal volunteers that are dedicated to the care of these animals and the time to help with events. We do have a handful of these individuals and they have gone beyond in effort. The youth, to be more involved. Local school leaders in Greeley, Windsor, and surrounding areas to commit involvement and education.
Would you volunteer for this group again?
For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?
Did the organization use your time wisely?
Would you recommend this group to a friend?
What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?
To be able to serve and have more time.
Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)
Yes, new friends, community involvement, community awareness, and the education of young children. Our church youth have had the opportunities to serve, our missionaries, and scout troops to earn their Eagle Scout awards. For me the knowledge of working with businesses and the functionality of a non-profit. The planning and execution of activities and fundraising.
How did this volunteer experience make you feel?
Grateful that we, my husband and I, could make a difference not only in the animals lives, but those around us.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
