Review for Animal Place, Grass Valley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteered at Animal Place for 1.5 years. During that time I helped clean, did animal care and provided volunteer photography for the organization. Kim Sturla, the director, is incredibly knowledgeable about animal rights and welfare. The rescued farmed animals at Animal Place are cared for expertly and lovingly. The educational events Animal Place holds are excellent.

Role:  Volunteer & Volunteer.

Review for The Humane Society Of The United States, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I worked with the HSUS during the California Proposition 2 campaign. They offered classes in campaign strategy and public speaking that I found very educational and effective. The CEO, Wayne Pacelle, came to California on many occasions during this campaign. He and California director, Jennifer Fearing, brought some of us to meetings with editorial staff from major newspapers and met with volunteers at public hearings. Overall I found the organization to be committed, honest, appreciative of volunteer help and a very effective organization that improves the lives of all animals. Since that campaign I have attended conferences sponsored by the HSUS and attended their Lobby Days in California and in D.C. They always provide me with educational materials and always let me know how appreciative they are of my commitment

Role:  Volunteer & I campaigned as a volunteer for Proposition 2 in California.
