ANGELS WISH INC
January 26, 2011

Angel's Wish is somewhat unique in the animal sheltering business in that the cats and kittens helped by AW spend 90% of their week in a home surrounded by kids, dogs, other cats, noise, and all the other things that an animal will encounter in any forever home. On the weekend they are brought to the shelter for people to meet them 1:1 and (with luck) go home. AW is an all volunteer organization with no paid staff existing entirely on donations it receives from its supporters and local businesses. People often find us on Petfinder.com and come in to see certain pets based on looks and wind up going home with that pet or another one (or two!) entirely based on their interactions. It's a very special place.

The Great!

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

I have adopted a cat and she's so well adjusted and comfortable in a home it's like she never spent a day in a shelter.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Greater organization by the board, but seeing as it's ALL volunteer we manage surprisingly well.
