WILDLIFE SCIENCE CENTER
November 26, 2012

Quite a few years ago, my husband and I attended a wine tasting benefit for the Wildlife Science Center. We had recently moved to the Forest Lake area and attended the wine tasting just for something fun to do. While we were there we bid on and won a day-camp pass for the Science Center which we gave to my stepson. He had a great time at camp, and I'm still thankful we were able to get him away from his video games for a few good lessons from mother nature! I have visited the Center on some of their event days and think the work they do is more difficult than the usual humane work that is done due to the variety of creatures that they have in their care. It deserves praise; and I always enjoy learning something new from them when I attend their events!

Northwoods Humane Society
November 11, 2012

I have been a volunteer with Northwoods Humane Society since 2007. I have put in many hundreds of hours in many different capacities as a volunteer. I have found that NHS has always been a place where caring for animals is paramount. The staff's commitment to helping the public find solutions to their animal challenges- whether it be taking in unwanted animals, providing information and opportunities for low-cost pet care, or helping people find new, wonderful pets to add to their families is amazing and admirable. From a veterinary standpoint, cleanliness and illness management are kept to high standards every day. From the perspective of a potential adopter, NHS provides a simple process for finding a new pet and it is easy to feel at ease after seeing how well kept the facilities are and how helpful the staff and volunteers are. I enjoy my time spent volunteering with so many great, committed people, and recommend NHS to everyone I know who is interested in finding a new pet.
