My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Arizona Animal Welfare League, Inc., Phoenix, AZ, USA
My husband and I have been volunteering at AAWL for over 2 years. They do a great job at the events given how much organization is required. Everyone at the AAWL is very dedicated to helping the animals. Other volunteers have been there for many years so that tells me they have been acknowledged and feel valued. I love the place so much that I hope to be employed there some day soon and make my own contribution to this wonderful place. Sure, sometimes communication isn't as good as it might be but the logistics involved in,say, an offsite adoption event can be very difficult and things can change but everyone just takes a deep breath and gets on with it for the animals sake and this is everyone's priority. We love AAWL!
Would you volunteer for this group again?

Did the organization use your time wisely?
Would you recommend this group to a friend?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?
Nothing, in my opinion they treat us well and We certainly feel valued. The volunteer department does a great job and are always so upbeat lovely ladies, all of them.
Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)
Yes, we have a pet sitting/ dog training business and working at the shelter has made us want to learn more about shelter operations as a business...so that is what I hope to do. This would enhance our knowledge of shelter work and how we can promote it to our pet sitting and training clients and the general public.
How did this volunteer experience make you feel?
There is a famous quote and I am not sure who said it (possibly Gandhi)...."All that is not given is lost" and that is the good feeling it gives us. What goes around comes back around to you!
