Review for Help of Raymore, Inc., Belton, MO, USA
From the first moment I set foot in HELP, I knew that I was in a shelter unlike any other. Immaculately clean and cheerful, the animals seemed to be living a supervised freedom, taking turns peacefully enjoying life out of the confines of their cages. One got the feeling that the animals lucky enough to be rescued by HELP, did not feel imprisoned. By the end of my visit I realized that the answer was in the intensity of the love that undeniably permeated the facility. Three years have passed and through my involvement as donor, shelter buddy and sponsor my respect and gratitude have only grown for this organization who cares for EVERY animal as a member of the family. And this is a family that does not deny the best treatment possible to its old and sick. I have no doubt that there are other wonderful animal shelters with hardworking selfless individuals, but there could never be another shelter anywhere that could hold a candle to this amazing shelter nonpareil!

She personally took the cat to the vet numerous times, trying everything possible to cure the cat, and when it was apparent the cat was too ill to survive, she stayed up with it all night at the shelter holding it in her coat to keep it comfortable and warm.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Convey to the world how unique this shelter is so that they would never have any financial worries.
