My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Smoky Mountain Animal Care Foundation, Maryville, TN, USA
I have been volunteering at the Center just after it opened to the public and before the building was completed. I've had the privilege to help volunteer and work in the center under many different roles, as well as see and be a part of Many, many different changes through these years.
I've watched our volunteer base increase from just a few dozen to hundreds of volunteers! Our beautiful furry friends, have never been so lucky and blessed to find themselves moving through out center as opposed to any other. We function on a very high saving rate with all of our volunteer help... even with a less than average employee base vs. any other county shelter.
Despite the fact that there are so many different personalities coming into one place, everyone always comes together for the benefit of our beautiful furry friends, as a family, and a team making it an amazingly enjoyable place to work/volunteer!
I truly encourage anyone with any type of a love for animals to come and visit! You may just find that you've found your new forever family member... and who knows, maybe you can pick up a volunteer application, and become a part of our amazing family!
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would LOVE to see the Center able to hire on more employees to facilitate a better and more thorough ability to complete the day to day needs of the animals and activities without worry someone may possibly go without if any of the volunteers are unable to show up that day.
