Review for Fox Valley Animal Welfare League, Aurora, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Over the years the FVAWL has evolved and I really like the direction they are going. Helping to spay and neuter as many pets as possible in our area is wonderful. Also having the pet food pantry for those that are having trouble in these economic times is a great way to evolve. Good job FVAWL and thanks!

Review for Animals Deserving Of Proper Treatment, Naperville, IL, USA

Rating: 3 stars  

While I think the organization as a whole does good work, they certainly didn't seem to appreciate their volunteers - no matter what role those volunteers played.

Review for Angels On Wheels Animal Rescue Nfp, Naperville, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered with 3 animal rescue organizations over the past 10 years. Angels on Wheels is by far the best to work with as a volunteer. They understand that you need a break from fostering occasionally or you'll get burned out. They understand that not everyone makes a good pet owner and they ask questions of potential adopters because they want THE BEST for all of the animals they rescue. They have a formal process for adopting, which keeps the animals from winding up in research facilities (or possibly worse). However, they also understand regular people and don't keep people with children from adopting a pet, but help to educate them instead and find THE RIGHT pet, not just one that looks cute.
