Animal Advocates in Los Angeles, California, and Director Mary Cummins offered reasonable, actionable recommendations that led to the successful resolution of a complex situaiton involving rabid bats affecting about 100 homes. Mary Cummins was always professional, consensus building, and supportive of finding the best possible outcome for the bats, the public, and the government. With her help, the public health and the welfare of the local bat population were preserved.

I would highly recommend Mary Cummins as an expert in wild animal rescue, urban-wildlife interface issues, and public information on animal issues. She also proved to very knowledgeable on animal shelter management.

How did you find this group?

Worked may way through a list of referrals. Other rehabbers may have been more vocal or conspicuous in the bat world, but they were not as helpful or familiar with local government operating procedures, and in some cases agitated the public to be uncooperative.

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?

renewed my faith that there are still good people out there willing to contribute dispite adversity.
