ALLEY ANIMALS INC
November 26, 2012

Alley Animals is a nonprofit animal rescue made up of very dedicated volunteers who go out every night feeding orphaned dogs and cats they can't catch and taking in those they can catch. I have found two stray cats and called on them for help. They never have turned one away and one kitty was pregnant. They do remarkable work to help save those who have been tossed out, neglected or born because humans don't realize how important it is to neuter or spay their pets. I make a couple of donations a year and hope that others will also see the importance of this wonderful nonprofit. They also take in food, blankets and other things to help the animals.

MY ROLE:
Donor

By Their Side
November 8, 2012

My brother is developmentally disabled. Years ago my father got in touch with this organization but as we were children then I did not know this. Now my brother is 61 and I am 67. My parents are gone. But almost right after they passed (13 years ago now) ani credible woman got in touch with me and my brother and got him settled in his own place witha roommate and helped me with all the DDA paperwork and got my brother something he always wanted - independence and self- confidence to take a job and to eventually have his own apartment and the help to keep his independence. When my brother was growing up there wasn't much out there for him or for my parents. A doctor told them he should be institutionalized but they kept him homeland gave him a beautiful life with tons of love and affection. This has remained with him. He is a wonderful man and had this happened today I am confident I saying that his life may have been greatly different. He is high functioning but I am convinced that the dedicated people at By Their Side saw that in him and helped bring out even more those qualities in my brother. I am forever indepted to By Their Side!
