Review for Outreach For Animals Inc, Dayton, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We have collaborated on a number of occasions with OFA and cannot say enough about their compassion, courtesy, and professionalism. This organization comes "from the heart" and exists solely to help animals in need and teach responsibility around all wildlife. They are a 'fledgling' organization and need your support to do the work that needs done for captive exotic "pets". They are the "real deal"!

Review for Outreach For Animals Inc, Dayton, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Tim Harrison's unparalleled emergency management and responder skills, combined with his leadership and compassion for animals and people, make Outreach for Animals an outstanding and unique organization! Unlike so many animal advocacy organizations, OFA is a hands-on group that helps displaced and often dangerous exotic animals a new lease on life. They intervene when no one else will! Don't support the HSUS with your $$, support OFA, the REAL heroes who are in the field routinely ensuring the safety of the the public and the health and well-being of animals. I highly recommend support of OFA.

Review for Professional Animal Retirement Center, Albion, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Black Pine has partnered with dedicated volunteers, local refuse service companies, and visiting educators to provide recycling services on site to encourage good stewardship and GREEN living! The animals enjoy natural habitats. Organic waste is composted daily. The sanctuary's septic system features one of only a handful of constructed wetlands for natural, organic breakdown of waste. BPAS is GREEN! Bravo!

Review for G W Exotic Animal Foundation, Wynnewood, OK, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

It seems indisputable that GW Exotic Animal Park does indeed rescue animals. And it appears the level of care provided has greatly improved over the years, after what seems to have been a rocky start. However, the financial burden of never saying no, of never turning away an animal, when doing so financially endangers the lives of the 1,400 others already living in the facility, is troublesome to me. It also seems to be a huge contradiction to, on one hand, "rescue" animals and, on the other, to breed and produce more captive animals to be used for commercial purposes. The director has stated he would take the baby tigers off the road if he could afford to. If that's true, and this mission to rescue is sincere, then GW needs to make some serious changes in my 'giving' book before I can support them or recommend them to anyone else.

What is unique about this organization?

The mixed mission of 'rescue and education' vs. 'entertainment and commercial use'.
