Review for Pet Animal Welfare Society of Connecticut (PAWS), Norwalk, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It's amazing how many of the reviews are from people who have been volunteering at PAWS for years and years, with many over a decade. The dedication of the volunteers and staff at PAWS speaks volumes for the strong commitment to the guiding principles of the organization. PAWS truly cares about the welfare of all pets, and makes a huge positive impact on Norwalk and its surrounding communities.

I've been a volunteer at PAWS for about 15 years, and also a very happy and satisfied customer.

Review for Norwalk Emergency Shelter, Inc., Norwalk, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a volunteer, donor and supporter of the Norwalk Emergency Shelter (aka Open Door Shelter and Manna House Soup Kitchen), I have seen firsthand the good work and invaluable services provided by the staff. They care about people in need and do their absolute best to provide temporary assistance and to offer counsel and services to help their clientele regain their footing in society.

I was surprised by the low overall rating, but see that one old and misguided review is dragging down the average. This is a homeless shelter operating on a shoestring budget. They are understaffed and overworked, but do their absolute best. The food provided through the soup kitchen may not be gourmet, but it is prepared in a Health Department certified environment by staff and volunteers who care.
