Review for Norcal German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue Inc, Menlo Park, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Over the years I've helped with transportation of dogs and materials, fostering, home visits, and preparing for and assisting at fundraisers. I've watched the organization grow and change, and met lots of dogs whose lives turned out much better than they could have because of this organization. GSPs are a nutty bunch, and often don't test well on shelter temperament tests because they're so into everything that they don't "display interest in people". The foster program provided by NorCal GSP Rescue allows these great dogs to get out of the high-stress environment of a shelter, chill out, brush up on their manners, and meet people who are ready to adopt a GSP forever.

Review for Watershed Management Group Inc, Tucson, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteered full time with WMG in India for six months last fall and winter. I established an ecological vegetable garden and managed the landscape of WMG India's partner organization, Grampari. As part of a diverse and talented team, I learned so much about water issues (watershed management, sanitation and hygiene issues) and their role in world problems; more importantly, I learned how to approach finding, sharing, and implementing solutions. My time with WMG was a transformative experience for me, professionally, and solidified my devotion to meeting real needs and addressing pressing environmental and social issues of today and tomorrow.
