Review for Help of Raymore, Inc., Belton, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I became aware of HELP Humane around 2008 and adopted our cat there shortly after. I never really looked forward to going to animal shelters and had actually only ever adopted one pet at a shelter before. My memories of that place are good people, good animals but sad environment, no hope other than an occasional animal getting lucky and making it out. The animals at HELP are happy, well cared for and actually loved as individuals by the staff and the volunteers. I am happy being there, it is a place of hope, a place where good is being done and where you can join in with others and achieve something you wouldn't be able to on your own. A place to talk with other people who share my interests. I should pay them to let me work there, it provides so much stress relief for me. If every animal shelter could be like HELP Humane.

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

I experience a lot of satisfaction and stress relief from any and all interactions with this positive, wonderful facility. I also have adopted two cats from HELP Humane, I am so thankful they were there to rescue my two girls so they could lead happy lives with us.

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

I would not make any changes to the organization. I would like to see more people give a modest amount of money each month to create an dependable income that the organization could rely on allowing them to rescue more animals.
