Review for Animal Humane Society, Minneapolis, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've attended classes, volunteered and adopted family pets from the Animal Humane Society since I was a kid (30+ years). It is a wonderful, compassionate organization that truly cares about animal welfare.

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

the past 30 years. They provide care for an unbelievably large number of animals each year.

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

give them more money so they could even better serve our community.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?

Life-changing

Did the organization use your time wisely?

Quite well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?

Definitely

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

They recently completed a volunteer survey and have been making a number of changes to improve the volunteer experience. I have nothing on my "wish list."

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

We've fostered close to 100 animals and it has been incredibly fun and rewarding to know all of these animals have found permanent homes. In addition, I have been able to learn more about animal welfare legislation in Minnesota and the difficult process of trying to "change the system."

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2011

Role:  Volunteer & I am currently a foster family for the shelter (cats and kittens).
