My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Hope for Animals, Fort Wayne, IN, USA
As a low-cost spay/neuter/vaccination clinic HOPE has operated for less than a year. They have accomplished a great deal in this short time. I volunteer in the office, and I am impressed with the dedication and resilience of the staff. These professionals must deal with some very demanding situations, especially with feral, unsocialized, or frightened animals. Yet they maintain their sense of humor and compassion. And the clinic prices are beyond reasonable.
As a cat rescue group, HOPE has been around for several years. I've volunteered with other rescue groups, but Emilie Beard, who manages the rescue aspect, is several notches above any other I've seen. Based on what I see as a foster for some of her cats, she carefully tends to the medical and social needs of every cat. She knows their history, their personal quirks, their habits . . . . She can make a well informed recommendation as to the type of home in which the cat/kitten will thrive. I call Emilie "The Cat Whisperer" due to her extensive knowledge and experience in caring for cats.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
volunteering on a weekly basis.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
provide lots and lots of money to expand their necessary mission.
