Review for Humane Society Silicon Valley, Milpitas, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am passionate about animals, but need to know that the organizations I support are also well-run and will steward my dollars well. Over the past several years, I have been impressed by the efficiency of HSSV's expenditures and the ratio that they spend on administrative costs. I feel good that the majority of my giving actually goes to programs, even though I know that administrative costs are necessary. I also am very impressed with the new facility and how welcoming it feels. It's QUIET there and the animals seem much less stressed out than at the older facility in Santa Clara. I love the education programs at HSSV and that snazzy Community Room that is rentable by corporations and groups. What an innovative way to invite the community into the center - and who knows!? When people come to the center, I'm sure more animals get adopted!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the animal I've adopted and the people (both staff and volunteers) who obviously care SO much about what they are doing.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

caring, kind, knowledgeable and very welcoming.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

finish paying for that wonderful new Animal Community Center and create an endowment for the overarching programs that will be around for years.

Ways to make it better...

I could adopt more than one at a time! I don't have more room at my house!

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
