Review for Humane Society Of Montgomery County Inc, Blacksburg, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have always found it easier to be kind to animals than to some people that I have known. Whenever I have needed to add to four-legged family, I have always found the most wonderful animals at the Montgomery County Humane Society. This organization operates primarily through the kindness of volunteers and always puts the animals first. Every animal is spayed or neutered before he/she is released to a "forever" home. Every time I visit, all the animals seem so happy, so I know they are being well taken care of. My current felines were once boarders there - Riley, the 20 black Siamese (by voice) and One-eyed Jack Sparrow (he had lost his eye before being surrendered). Riley is my lap cat, while Jack keeps everybody hopping . He is constantly trying to jump to the top of my dining room table and has no distance vision - so he ends up catching the table cloth and pulling everything to the floor. It's hard not to love the organization that has brought such joy to my life!

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

the purrs and barks the greet every day when I come home.

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

build them a bigger building so that no animals would have to be put down. This is a no-kill shelter and uses foster-parenting to relieve some of the stress put upon it.

Review for ProCon.org, Santa Monica, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I teach at a major university and have found ProCon,org to be a wonderful resource for students when discussing controversial issues in class. In particular, I teach a psychopharmacology class in during which half of the class is devoted to exploring drug policy issues. Since most of our drug policies seem to be emotionally based, rather than evidence based, this website provides not only a history of the controversy but updates on current bills that are pending. I most heartily recommend them for balanced representation of complex issues,

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

I use them as a resource in several of my courses.

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

give them more money to expand the topics they cover!

Role:  Volunteer & I used this site to supplement my teaching materials.
