This place can NEVER keep dog walkers because they treat their volunteers like crap! My grown Autistic daughter was able to catch a dog that got loose, when none of their staff could. My daughter loved volunteering there. She even put up a page on Facebook called "My Life as an AWSOM volunteer with pictures of animals. Well someone told her that she had no right to represent AWSOM. Next, someone threatened her on Facebook and told her she would no longer be able to volunteer. Then she got a FB message telling her that she is so ugly that she should kill herself. When we questioned AWSOM about this, AWSOM refused to give us her name; saying was a board member. Then they told her they didn't want drama so to not come back! Also, they didn't get one of my cat's blood work right and said they could do it again for ANOTHER $90.00 Other people have told us of the horrible experiences they had with AWSOM. Also if a dog/cat can not be adopted, should they live their life in a cage??? THAT is also inhumane! But they won't take them to THEIR house! Their fees are way to high! The American Autism Society told me I could sue them as well!!!
In two short years of existence, AWSOM has found homes for over 1700 animals and opened a shelter which the PSPCA closed. This is a no kill shelter run by volunteers. One of my friends recently adopted a puppy which had been brought in from a kill shelter and was scheduled to be killed, and she is a sweetheart. Thanks to AWSOM, my friend and Emma found each other, enriching both their lives.
