Review for GLOBAL FEDERATION OF ANIMAL SANCTUARIES, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

GFAS is a much needed organization in the sanctuary and animal welfare field as it provides a badly needed set of standards by which to judge sanctuaries and helps sanctuaries succeed. Sanctuaries in the US can be anything from a roadside zoo to a state of the art animal welfare facility and GFAS helps weed out the pseudo sanctuaries from the real deal. This is a huge service for funders and the public. In addition, the ED Patty Finch is an excellent fundraiser and administrator who has poured her heart and soul, and many hours, into growing the organization to where it is. As a volunteer, it has been a privilege to work with her and learn from her. Her caliber of leadership has been a huge asset to GFAS.

Role:  Volunteer & I asisted in their captive wild animal policy work.
