My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Adopt-A-Pet, Inc., Mt. Prospect, IL, USA
I got involved with Adopt-A-Pet about year and half ago as a foster parent. This organization truly cares about the welfare of animals and all the activities are organized around saving lives. There are so many animals that need to be adopted and so many that are killed b/u they are not wanted and have no homes. Many of the volunteers spend countless hours and their own money to make a small difference in the lives of animals. Everybody involved in the organization works together to make things happen -- adoption shows; adoption counseling; volunteering and fostering. For the length of the time that I have been involved with Adopt-A-Pet, I have only seen how truly engaged and caring the volunteers are to help homeless cats and dogs. What I also like in particular is that the organization in selects animals that are most adoptable, which is a very efficient and practical way of having successful adoptions. Please consider donating to this very worthy cause.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)
Tought me about the number of cats/dogs that need homse. Making me aware how black animals take much longer to be adopted out. It thought me that adoptions from shelters are taken very seriously and the animals are seriously matched with adoptees to avoide any problems and to make sure that they are for life.
How did this volunteer experience make you feel?
Great -- I feel like I am making a small difference in life of animals.
