It is with great pleasure and pride that I am affiliated with WA2S by being a board and film crew member. I have the opportunity to film and share stories of humans rescuing dogs, reuniting families and even showing the heartache and heartbreak and tragedy. Recently we were in Houston, where there is a massive stray dog problem. We were surveying and filming with rescues. Our departure was one day before Hurricane Harvey hit. Once home I could think of nothing other than getting back down to help our friends, which we were able to do. I have never felt so compelled to be somewhere, doing everything we could to help; to share information; to create awareness of the post-hurricane heroes. It was thanks to the bonds we have been blessed to build by doing our work. I look forward to our next follow up with our friends in Houston.

I am increasingly impressed with the progress WA2S is making in developing its programs and, thereby, providing eyes for the world to see the plight of animals in today's world.

This is a genuine and pationate organization with clear goals and strong drive.
WA2S creates beautifly crafted visuals that document human interaction with and impact on the animal world. I am particularly proud of their American Strays Project - a noble cause, and an organized, science-based effort towards ending the neglect of our closest companions.

I am a proud new Board Member and just so thrilled to be writing this review for WA2S.org.

Tom has an incredibly insightful organization, providing information, raw footage and pathways of self discovery for anyone interested. As a rescue volunteer and healthcare professional, I have seen many human/animal junctions, interractions and have asked myself some pretty powerful questions, along my pathway of self discovery.

Any and every response you have, whatever you learn, observe or commit to........keep watching.
Never shield yourself from all lives, all species and all humanity.......
