Review for A Wish For Animals, Dana Point, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

About 5 years ago I found A Wish For Animals online. I contacted the Toni, the director of the non-profit and asked her if she had a really mean looking dog that is the sweetest thing that no one is adopting. Toni brought out my dog Scout. A 40lb American Bulldog, malnourished and spots of mange throughout her body. She had just a few days prior been attacked by a dog as she was in transition from a kill shelter to A Wish For Animals. Scout needed surgery, her wounds from the attack were abscessing. I decided to adopt Scout, Toni from A Wish For Animals paid for the $600 + surgery on the neck. Even though she was not in possession of Scout when she was attacked; Toni took on the responsibility of Scout’s health.
After my experience with Toni I have referred many people her way to adopt their family pets. Toni is a hard working woman that is totally dedicated to her cause. She has gone above and beyond to take in dogs that are homeless. I found out in the process of adopting my dog that she has relationship with the local county shelters and she will take the dogs that are adoptable when the shelter is going to put them down. Because of her tenacity and love for the animals I have my sweet sweet girl scout. If it was not for Toni building those relationships with the shelters most likely Scout would have been put to sleep. Thank you Toni for all you do for these animals. I just adore my dog.

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

Incredible. This organization is all about love for the animals and placing them with the right families.

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

Give A Wish For Animals a larger facility to house all the dogs they come across, and a abundance of capital to care for the animals.
