I am a foster and love this organization. They care for the animals and their well being. They put the animal first. They take every precaution to ensure the safety of the animal (cats and dogs) . I will continue to foster for this organization. I have never been part of an organization that puts so much caring and love into the rescue of animals.

JCAPL is an unethical, unscrupulous, unprincipled, and inhumane organization. The people that run it have NO respect for an animal or a human! Just a horrible experience! Unfortunately, I was the 1 in 3 of lost dogs as their literature says. My dog escaped the fenced yard through a small opening that I did not know was there. Fortunately, the dog was captured safely and returned to my home as instructed by the foster. The next day the dog was taken back which was the worst thing to do to the poor animal that was recovering, resting, and feeling safe. I did not get a call from foster to let me know the dog was found, as the chip had foster information, nor was I contacted to find out how the dog was doing! Contacted the board to have an investigation and after two long weeks of me trying to contact them several times, they denied my request. Guess who has the dog after being told I would never be able to have her but would help in finding another dog... The most important thing is the dog is safe!

This organization was horrible about answering messages, had inaccurate information on their website, and made it very obvious that they did not care about their pets enough to respond to emails regarding application processing, specific questions about certain pets, or anything. The one contact that did occur was very negative in nature, and that occurred nearly a week after I began trying to contact them. They NEVER emailed me back or answered messages about the cat I was interested in, and they truly proved to me that they had no value in me as an applicant. I had much better interactions with other organizations, and have been offered numerous appointments with pets from other organizations. This organization truly let me down, and I feel bad for the pets being cared for through it. I hope they don’t spend all their lives in foster care.

I have been a "foster mom", in the past two years of roughly 14 rescue's. Two of those my family and I adopted as our furever pets. The other 12 where all adopted by wonderful families. Knowing that JCAPL is there to help the lost, injured, dumped and abused animals. I am grateful for every dog that comes into my life. Being able to help a dog heal from whatever situation brought it into my life is a humbling experience.

JCAPL is a great animal rescue group. They have huge hearts and are ready to help animals in need. They take excellent care of the animals in their programs and actively seek great families for those animals. Professionally, JCAPL is easy to work with and always willing to lend a helping hand for the benefit of the animals.

My first experience with the Protection League was in 2014 before I became involved in the support role in animal programs and services. A pregnant cat came to my home and during birth had experienced major complications. They took over care of the cat and kittens. They placed them in good homes after the fact. As a professional, I began a lost and found program in a neighbor county, and the Protection League was a wonderful in support and partnership in placement of animals found in Johnston County or would act as a partner on issues where jurisdiction of two different counties would not allow cooperation. They supported our lost and found in the infancy of the program. Our lost and found has grown to my role being expanded to include Friends of Wayne County Animals (NC) and Wayne County Lost and Found 4 Dogs NC. We have 10,300 followers, and very active programs in Wayne County.

No of this success would be possible without Stephanie and the Protection League. They are the most compassionate over the humane treatment of animals and the most powerful and effective non-profit in the area that is outside a traditional rescue. A great nonprofit wants to insure their success, but the success of others is important to their organization. The selfless organization role is a paramount reason that Johnston County Animal Protection League is an outstanding nonprofit.

I have been a volunteer as a cat/kitten foster and special events helper with Johnston County Animal Protection League for about 6 years. The people I have worked with have been outstanding. From the president to the volunteers work with a great commitment to our cause. It's all about the animals. Any time I've had a question, needed supplies or a vet appointment for a sick foster I get immediate help. We are well known and never fail to stay in touch with the community. We adopt, fund raise, hold microchip clinics and do dog washes. We are very community involved including assisting low income families with the cost of spaying and neutering. We rock!!
