Brilliant documentation of animal related issues, unbiased, yet creatively told, through the lens of a camera. The cameraman, Tom McPhee, has an eye for the art of pictorial storytelling. His favorite sidekick, Deanna Vollano, keeps the organization running smoothly, as she coordinates the organizations activities and volunteers. Their mission, unbiased reporting of animal related issues, has an underlying goal to bring humans together, and inspire an opportunity for solutions. The World Animal Awareness Society gives hope to those that have no voice, and a possibility to save the dwindling habitats and animal populations around the world.
It was a great honor and privilege to volunteer for WA2S, to contribute and to be part of the team.
World Animal Awareness Society is doing a tremendous job illustrating a chronic problem in the US and by doing so creating critical awareness! Thank you.
Our Non-profit Animal Rescue organization "Tescatame" recently held a MASH style spay-neuter clinic for 400 dogs and cats in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, in partnership with Caribbean Spay Neuter and the team of Vet Drs., Techs and volunteers who travelled to the DR for this purpose, paying for their expenses and donating their hard work and expertise for the benefit of the animals in need.
WA2S sent their team to Punta Cana, they paid for all their expenses and accompanied us during the clinic, filming the different stages of it and interviewing the Vet Drs, Techs and Volunteers.
We at Rescatame Punta Cana (www.rescatame.org) are very happy about the videos filmed and produced by WA2S during our October 2016 Punta Cana spay-neuter clinic and feel that they are helping spread the word about our organization and the work we do to help the stray animals in Punta Cana.
Noticed they posted some incorrect information with a video. Others commented for the same reason. They would only reply with answers like "No, we wouldn't put that". Even with copying and pasting from their own message they would admit to no wrong doing and just tried to belittle with snide comments in return. They shouldn't be telling a story if they don't want to use correct information. Zero integrity.
This is not a valid review. This review was placed here by supporters of the non profit, Michigan Anti Cruelty Society or MACS that did not like a video we posted showing the use of incinerators to get rid of un wanted dogs. MACS incinerates a great many dogs, and by the protests we filmed, nearly all the Pit Bulls that enter their 'shelter'. Our video coverage is of the protesters sharing their experiences. It can be found at the official WA2S Films YouTube Channel and is titled: "Man Brought Back to Life By Dogs Returns Favor Saving Pit Bulls From Horrific Incineration." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XDp5YO3merY
Very well documented on animal abuse and rescue I have been on several of the filming's nothing is scripted everything is really happening at the time of filming
When Tom found out that we are planning to castrate male dogs with calcium chloride at a Spay/Neuter Clinic in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, he enthusiastically offered to come and spend the full 4 days of the clinic to record the issues the local rescue people are dealing with. He is sincerely interested in improving the way we all can assist controlling the stray dog population problem in the world, and he recognizes the possibility that the low -cost injectable castration with calcium chloride in alcohol can and will really make a difference. His crew is ready to record volunteer veterinarians, technicians, rescuers and caregivers at work; and not just the technical stuff; he is working towards a reporting that will show the world the need for this kind of work. We are looking forward to being of assistance to the great work Tom, his crew and his non-profit are doing.
Great organization, was helpful in bringing the plight of the Detroit stay dogs to the attention of the public and officials in Detroit.
It's great to see people are out there, advocating and bringing awareness to the public about the homeless dog population in some of our major cities, as well as the neglect suffered by so many from their owners. Great job!
The work that Tom, Deanna and the rest of WA2S does is incredibly inspiring! I consider myself lucky to have had the chance to work with them on a few projects in the past. I can't recommend supporting WA2S enough in any way possible. They are making a difference every single day!
The WA2S is creating an incredible amount of awareness about the stray dog issue in the United States.
