My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for National Mill Dog Rescue, Colorado Spgs, CO, USA
Highly recommended Non-profit! National Mill Dog Rescue (NMDR) is an active and well-run organization of truly caring and compassionate people. I have enjoyed my experiences with them as an adopter, a foster parent, a donor, and as a volunteer. Well worth your time, resources, and donations to directly save and help these poor, sweet, innocent souls - the victims of puppy mills. They bring these dogs to freedom for the first time and you can see the change happen in them over time. NMDR cares for each and every dog they rescue for the rest of their lives.
We have adopted 3 senior dogs (after 10, 8, and 7 years living in little cages) and have fostered and re-homed 3 others. While taking in a puppy mill survivor is challenging, it is quite rewarding. These dogs never got a chance to live as dogs and lack a lot of normal dog behaviors, but when they start learning how to trust, love, play, explore, run on grass, etc. it is the most incredible feeling ever. While my dogs are not completely potty or leash trained, that's okay with me. I want to make up for their horrible past lives and want them to experience the best life ever!
Review for The National Military Family Association, Alexandria, VA, USA
The National Military Family Association is a high quality and caring non-profit organization which I am proud to be a part of as a member, a Volunteer, and a benefitting military spouse. The Association continues with its advocacy on behalf of military families and keeps up with on-going and current issues concerning them. They seem to "dig deeper" with their research and findings, take real action, and give our military families a true voice. When I first got connected with the Association, I realized that they were broad in their scope, yet also had to be specific in dealing with the different Uniformed Services which are very similar yet also very different - I learned the term "Purple." As a Volunteer, I continue to receive training and up-to-date information on how I can help and be active in my own military community. As a military spouse, their website and staff are amazing resources for me and my military friends. With the Naitonal Military Family Association, we are never alone or without assistance.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
education and support as a military spouse
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
get more people to hear about them and support military families through them
