Review for Humane Society Of The Pikes Peak Region, Colorado Spgs, CO, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region is an amazing organization of people dedicated to the animals of Colorado Springs. The care they provide and the work they do is a vital part of the community. They provide Sterilization services at low cost and a Trap-Neuter-Release program that serves the feral cats who live in the community. They provide education to students of all ages including a wonderful kids camp in the summer. They are constantly trying to improve the care to the animals and have added a surgery center that sterilizes pets before they go out into the community and can help injured animals and provide surgeries that are necessary for the animals that are in their care. They are innovative and have utilized the ASPCA in gaining and improving their adoption rate with cats. The dogs who come to the shelter are in good hands with a TLC program that teaches the dogs socialization skills that are necessary to have happy endings. I enjoy volunteering in this environment where teamwork among volunteers and staff thrives.

They allowed me to come up with a solution to a problem, present it to the staff and the board and helped me implement a program called Cat Showcasing.

Review for LostNMissing, Inc, Londonderry, NH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When our 22 year old son went missing in a large city we were so worried and scared and we truly did not even know where to begin the process of trying to locate him.
We did not understand what the rules of the game we were entering. Cynthia and her group LostNMissing were amazing. They supported my family and myself with kindness, knowledge and empowered us on our journey of locating our son.
They made posters immediately and distributed them for us. They helped us learn about all the places we needed to get information to: Law Enforcement, Media, Social Networks. They even made a Facebook page for him and helped us learn that process.
I cannot have imagined how much more frustrated I would have been without their help.
LostNMissing helped us get our information on NAMUS - Immediately!

When no one understood my feelings - LostNMissing did.
When no one helped me and I felt discouraged - LostNMissing supported me.
When I felt like I was getting no where - LostNMissing provied new ways of hope.
When posters needed to get to New York Libraries, Hostels, Cafes, Book Stores, YMCA's, Train stations, Bus Stations - They were distributed by help of LostNMissing.
When we weren't getting any more press coverage - LostNMissing wrote a Blog about my son.
When we offered an Award - LostNMissing made a new Poster.
When we thought there was no hope - they gave us HOPE.
When we didnt know what to say when we found our son or how to act or what to do next - LostNMissing helped provide us guidance and further support.
This organization is Amazing and I can honestly say that I support them 100% and will now do volunteer work to help them.
Thank you SO VERY MUCH LostNMissing! For Every Little & BIG Thing!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Finding MY SON!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Support them financially.

Role:  Client Served & Cried and Asked what to do next - and did my best to follow through.

Thank you, Caralyn. It is cases such as your sons that we pray for everyday for all our missing families. We are truly honored to have you admire our work so much that you want to become part of our team to help others! Hugs, Cynthia
