I have fostered 4 dogs from NAWS so I have personal experience knowing that NAWS is doing a great job rescuing both dogs and cats. My daughter has also volunteered for 2 years helping to care and socialize the cats.
I think 2 example would illustrate how much NAWS cares about animals. One dog rescued was in such poor physical condition that adoption was not an option so Cocoa became an "ambassador" for the organization and lived with the founder until she recently died. As an ambassador, she spread "goodwill" with her gentle and kind personality.
Another dog I fostered developed epilepsy in addition to skin allergies. The emergency vet, treating the seizures expected NAWS to choose to euthanize the dog. Instead, Stacy Gaskins wanted to give Scooby a chance at recovery even though he was a large dog and would need medication and expensive food his entire life. NAWS gave him the chance, as well as paid for his life time medication. NAWS also paid for his obedience training and certification into AKC's Good Citizen award. Scooby found a wonderful loving home.
