Review for AMERICAN HUMANE ASSOCIATION, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a donor to the American Humane Association for many years and during the past two years, I have become an active member of the Red Star Team. The Red Stars are a well-organized group of volunteers that can deploy to animal-related disasters in a matter of a few hours. The organization is impressive in its efficiency in setting up a clean, orderly, temporary animal shelter. Clean space, walks, food and fresh water are provided, along with soft chatter, eye contact, singing, snuggles and belly rubs. Twelve-hour days are common, and I have never worked harder in my life, but seeing those innocent eyes and happy tails is a great motivator. In the case of a disaster, such as a flood, that destroyed a family's home, the temporary animal shelter is a great resource to families that have been displaced. The American Humane Association is there to provide loving care to the family's pets, easing their minds during very stressful times. I feel very fortunate to be able to participate as a Red Star volunteer.
