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

Rating: 5 stars  

I work for a municipal animal shelter and have been working with rescue organizations for over 5 yrs. now. A Wish for Animals is a great and dedicated group of people who do everything in their power to pull dogs from shelters (giving them a second chance), take care of any necessary medical/emotional needs, and carefully finds them forever homes. They are always willing do to whatever they can to help take our shelter dogs and are deeply appreciated by myself as well as the rest of the staff. It is hard to find rescues who will take larger mixed breed dogs - no matter how awesome and friendly - and place them into loving homes. They have great volunteers willing to drive a good distance (at least 100+ miles), on a weeknight with traffic, in order to take some dogs from us, thus giving us some space for our new arrivals as well as saving the dogs from possible euthanasia. They are a pleasure to work with and I can always sense and see the true passion they have to help these homeless animals. Coming across them as another resource for the pets at my shelter was and is a true blessing. They've made a big impact in our shelter.

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

seeing the pictures of dogs from our shelter who may not have had a happy ending now sitting by their new family... a furever loving home!

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

Do nothing other than continue to find ways of letting people know about this awesome animal rescue organization! I have nothing negative to say about A Wish For Animals!
