SOI DOG FOUNDATION USA
November 8, 2012

This is an absolutely amazing group. They are saving dogs from the illegal meat trade. Some of these dogs were once peoples pets and have been stolen and are smuggled into and awful death trade. Please get involved, spread the word, donate, adopt. They are doing so much to save dogs just like yours. Not being in the US does not make these dogs lives worth any less in my eyes. Please take a look at the work they do and decide for yourself. https://www.soidog.org/Default.aspx

BASIC RIGHTS OREGON
November 8, 2012

Basic Rights is enthusiastic about their mission and plays host to some really amazing, dedicated and brave individuals in the equal rights movement. My partner and I are a heterosexual couple and have personally attended some of the informative events that Basic Rights host and have both left with more knowledge and a desire to promote equality. We are happy to see them being so engaged in our amazing community and teaching tolerance. Equality says it all.

ANIMAL AID INC
November 8, 2012

Animal Aid has a great set up for the cats in their care, it is great to go to a "shelter" and see the animals roaming around getting all the love, exercise and interaction they need. I volunteered for this group for quite a while a few years ago and have been meaning to get more involved. They have gone through a few changes and gotten a new ED and are still moving forward with great results. They truly care for the animals in their care and you can tell. It is an excellent place to take your kids for a visit and will get them involved in active compassion. They also have a neat program that assists with vet care on a referral basis. Go in for a visit you will love what you see!

FENCES FOR FIDO
November 8, 2012

This is a nonprofit that really makes a difference and uses volunteer time to directly impact the lives of others. The fence builds are touching and may leave you with tears of joy. We just got new neighbors and it turns out that they also volunteer with Fences For Fido and have a super sweet dog that they adopted from them! If you are looking to do some hands on life changing work for some deserving pups (and sometimes other animals) then this is the place for you. If you don't have the time to get hands on and build a fence that's okay, I am sure they will gladly accept whatever donation you are able to give, they are absolutely worth it and are doing life changing work that you can see and be a part of. This group is accountable and you can be sure every ounce you donate is going directly to changing lives.
Fences For Fido is pure love and compassion in action!

Transition Projects, Inc.
November 8, 2012

The lengths that the staff and volunteers go to in order to help our homeless community members is amazing. Transition Projects engages the individuals that utilize their resources in a variety of ways. I was really impressed to see that they had client art work up for First Thursday(S) and invited the public to come in and take a look. I really enjoy the variety of volunteer opportunities they have as well, from coat drives, to sorting donations and cooking meals. I am very proud that my Partner works for such a great organization and comes home fulfilled each day. Keep up the good work everyone! PS: I just got back from volunteering today! :0)
