Operation Kindness, No-Kill Shelter
March 17, 2011

(My review is for the location in Carrollton, TX) I believe in Operation Kindness. I financially give to Operation Kindness. I've adopted two of the best kittens I've had from them. Operation Kindness does a great job in caring for and finding homes for companion animals. They have a beautiful shelter that is clean and well lighted, staffed mostly by volunteers. They now have medical staff available at te shelter who can provide medical care, spaying/neutering services, and checks out cats/kittens and dogs/puppies before the adoption is completed. I am glad to see there are no over-paid staff/executives listed here. There are a lot of fundraisers but they are necessary to bring in money to care for the animals entrusted to them. Believe me, the adoption fee doesn't begin to cover the cost of food/litter/medical care for the cats and dogs they care for. Some are older and will be there lifelong since most people want kittens and puppies rather than older animals. Some have medical problems that essentially make them unadoptable. After having two cats that had serious medical problems at a young age and the escalating cost of caring for them, I have a greater understanding of the costs of caring for a pet. Operation Kindness does a wonderful job and I highly believe in them and wouldn't hesitate to give my charitable dollars to them!

The Great!

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

The pets I've adopted from them. They have been well cared for, well fed, and Operation Kindness has done all they can to ensure the pet is healthy at the time of adoption. One kitten I was going to adopt turned out to have a case of ring worm breaking out. The staff would not allow the cat to leave the building until they had the chance to quarantine the kitten and treat her so that the ringworm was eradicated before they would allow her to leave the facility.

Ways to make it better...

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

None. The organization does a great job with the money they receive. I believe in Operation Kindness and my charitable dollars definitely go to them!
