SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY INC
July 19, 2010

This Society is an all volunteer run organization that depends completely on member donations to maintain the library and hold the largest annual West Coast-based genealogical conference. The 30,000 item collection of books, manuscripts, microfiche, and CDs is a veritable cornucopia of clues and information concerning the heritage of all who dare to visit.

I just recently completed a deployment to Kern County with UAN/EARS. The experience from beginning to end was a good one. As a volunteer in animal rescue situations, the key is to have an excellent support system, whether it be advanced training, on-site communication about changing conditions or dealing with difficult emotional situations. Throughout, I found the UAN/EARS volunteers and staff both were highly trained and provided the support I needed.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I witnessed rescued cats' and dogs' mental and physical health improve as a result of UAN/EARS sheltering and care. I am aware of many Lifeline Grants that UAN awards and understand that many animals' lives have been changed for the better as a result.

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

participating in a group effort to aid animals in distress.

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

highly trained and knowledgeable. All were willing to share that knowledgeable to those of us less skilled.

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

have a big impact on eliminating situations in which animals experience cruelty.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
