Got one of the greatest kitties ever from here. They were very patient with me and allowed me to meet as many kitties as I wanted to! They have small rooms where you can spend time with the animals and get to know them. They are also very knowledgeable about the animals, and were a great help in matching me up with a kitty whose personality was just what I was looking for (very loving and friendly!). I have visited to drop off donations, and also volunteered there in the past. The space is always clean and inviting, the animals are in great shape, and you can really tell they care very much. Can't say enough good things about them!

MY HEALING PLACE
June 14, 2011

My Healing Place is an organization that offers free therapy in group environments, as well as individual therapy on a sliding scale basis, for those who are dealing with grief. They have many different groups depending on your needs. I have been attending the "Younger Bereaved Spouses" group for about two years now.
When my husband died, I thought that I would be fine and did not need any help or therapy, about 8 months after his death, I realized that I was wrong, and very much felt alone and wanted to speak with others around my age who were experiencing the same things. I found My Healing Place on the internet and I am so glad that I did.
The meetings that I attend take place on the first and third Tuesdays of each month. When I began going, I wanted the meetings to be every week, they were so helpful! But in reality, every other week is the exact right amount.

The Great!

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

Meeting others who shared my circumstances, and being in a place where I can speak without judgement.

As I said, when I first began to attend, I wished the meetings were every week. As time passed, however, I felt that meeting every other week was just right.

Humane Society of Austin & Travis County

I went to this Humane Society looking for a new cat friend in my life. I had looked over their web site and had a few cats in mind when I got there. I spent time with the cats I had "previewed" - but they weren't the right fit for me. I spoke with several people there (I am thinking one was an employee, and one a volunteer) and the woman I believe is a volunteer spoke with me for a while to talk about which cat they had would be the right match for me. There was one cat that I had not looked at really, but they brought her to meet me, because her attitude seemed to be the right fit for what I was looking for. Well, the match was perfect, I couldn't have asked for a better cat. Not only did they assist me in finding the perfect ani-pal, the building was VERY clean, the cat in perfect health (I had her looked at by a vet shortly after adopting, just in case!) and everyone there loved the animals. You could just tell by walking in there they all believed in what they were doing and were helping all of their customers with a smile and great advice. Wonderful experience!!

The Great!

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

every aspect of my life. The cat they helped to match up with me has been an absolute joy.

Ways to make it better...

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

Possibly extend adoption hours, other than that, I can't think of anything.
