ANIMAL RESCUE NEW ORLEANS INC
December 20, 2013

When trying to find a lost cat .. I stopped in with hopes of looking for him and was told to leave flyer, but I couldn't go in to look at cats. The person I spoke with was less than friendly. Another person I know also had a bad experience with a less than friendly comment that was made to them when they were also searching for a lost pet. And even another when they were trying to find a place for a lost dog they had found.

The employees/volunteers need training with better communication skills so they are able to say no without being nasty.

Not exactly a main-stream group. Did not seem well organized here locally in New Orleans.

Although this organization runs animal control for New Orleans and is a kill shelter...they do a lot of work to prevent - as much as possible, putting down the animals. Their support of TNR for feral cats is very good and they also hold TNR workshops. There is also a feral cat caretakers group, so when an eartipped cat arrives at the shelter, colony caregivers are notified in the event it is one of their's so they may retrieve it.

Make it a no-kill shelter.

Have volunteered for several non-profit animal groups in the area. This one is by far the best organized that I have volunteered for. A real main-stream group of people. I will be giving the bulk of my donation money to this group and volunteer when I can.
