CAPITAL AREA HUMANE SOCIETY
January 26, 2011
I have adopted from this organization and spent time here as a volunteer. They conduct cruelty investigations for our county and shelter over 10,000 animals each year. This is a professional organization - focused on providing great care and services for pets in our community. I've witnessed staff go to extraordinary lengths to help pets. Their greatest challenge is funding - if you check their 990 and the budget for our local animal control facility - you'll find their budget is half that of the county run shelter and they generally handle a similar number of animals. They do good work - I'd encourage people to visit the facility and talk to staff & volunteers - ask for a tour if you want to see behind the scenes. I am proud to support their work!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
They have a great partnership with the OSU College of Veterinary Medicine - I think the students and faculty are there almost daily providing veterinary care to the animals!
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Pay staff more. There is no shame is paying good people a good wage for the good work they do for the community. And to pay staff more - they need more support from donors in central Ohio.
Would you volunteer for this group again?
For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?
Did the organization use your time wisely?
