Review for Gold Canyon Heart & Home, Mesa, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

While we first met over our love of providing services to Veterans, we quickly because enamored with their determination to aid those in crisis/disasters help themselves, from special need communities . Beside Veterans, seniors, disabled, those who live alone or with illnesses and more, benefiting from their"age disruption" for seniors, working with at risk women, developing housing and agricultural entrepreneurship, sustainable lifestyles and more. like our mission, instead of giving fish - they teach fishing! Helping people to help themselves!
We look forward to working together to help people learn resiliency, teamwork, problem solving, and greater communication in our Arizona Communities!

Review for Desert Cat Rescue & Sanctuary Of Arizona - Dcrsa, Thatcher, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This non profit is one of the most community based organizations in Arizona , doing almost miraculous programs on little cash donations from the community. Pet ownership, sixty-eight percent of U.S. households, or about 85 million families, own a pet, according to the 2017-2018 National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA). This is up from 56 percent of U.S. households in 1988, the first year the survey was conducted. Our experiences serving Arizona is that the rural community pet statistics in AZ is higher.

We are thrilled to have this Non profit as a state partner, setting an example for the rest of the state of how Urban and rural non profits can work together for the good of those rural communities. Please see them at Guidestar.org to look at their programs and financial statements to provide further support!

Review for Gabriel's Angels, Phoenix, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Aside from being one of the most worth while organizations that I have ever volunteered with, this organization has been a role model for non-profit excellence in Arizona. Participating in the Leadership Council for the Alliance of Arizona Non-profits, Founder Pam Gaber has won numerous Business and Leadership Awards in this state. Much f the success of my non-profit has come from the best practices that she has so graciously share to so many.

With the simple concept of "Stop the cycle of abuse!" This agency has grown to work with so many other Non-profits working with children that are abused in the Valley of the Sun, a population of4.5 million people (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoenix_metropolitan_area) and Tucson as well.

The affect they are having not only on the children then have helped over 11 years, but on the adult population, creating awareness and a voice that is growing to cal to action, prevention for this (previously) unspeakable act! We ask that funders, continue to help keep this vibrant agency alive and growing with their cash donations and community support!

Review for Lost Our Home Pet Foundation Inc, Tempe, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It is our honor to partner with this outstanding agency who has done so much good n the Arizona community, lead by an Executive Officer that so graciously provides guidance to other non-profits to help them grow quickly and effectively!

.Lost Our Home Pet Rescue's founder and director, Jodi Polanski, who was honored for being one of 30 of the Phoenix Business Journal's 2016 Outstanding Women in Business, also s a graduate of ASU's Lodestar Non-Profit School and an untiring member of the Business Leadership of Arizona.

While it is unfortunate, that some people don't understand the politics of food products and some company's need to protect themselves from liability as well as a profit strategy, by having people throw out food and buy more, we too are blessed by companies giving us pet products past the "sell by " date to able to give to others who are having challenges and are facing giving up their beloved pets.Because of this we have been able to give $675,000 worth of pet food and pet items to 11 counties in Arizona, and count Lost our Home as one of our role models. Interested people can read more here: http://www.emptybowlpetfoodpantry.org/pet-food-safety.html and don't forget to follow the links to learn how some companies prosper by playing to our fears.

Congratulations as well, on being a Guidestar Gold Star member for your agency transparency. http://www.guidestar.org/profile/37-1589959 We suspect that you have also been chosen to apply for the Platinum rating, to appear in a few months.

Review for Raccoon Valley Animal Sanctuary & Rescue, Boone, IA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am so honored to have worked with this non-profit for over 10 years to help pets and their humans. The Executive director, Linda Blakley and I came together to help problem dogs on a yahoo email list that served over 25,000 from around the world, who came in solved their problem and left, ~ and still today currently has over 3,000 members.

This agency's unique approach, of helping pets to stay in their homes instead of the traditional method of waiting for them to be homeless makes them one of Iowa's most valuable non-profits. We are so grateful for the international support that has saved so many lives that this excellent stand for and does!

Review for Cochise Canine Rescue, Pomerene, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We are proud to support this non-profit as one of our partner agencies. We at Animals in Disaster, Empty Bowl Pet Food Pantry are blessed to be given $675,000 of goods tp distribute in Arizona from the wealth of Phoenix (2014 IRS990). When we are giving healthy pet food and veterinary pet food we give some to this wonderful rescue that cares for so many of the abandoned pets in this county. At a poverty rate of 28%, this Rescue has taken on the hardest job of operating in the most rural areas between Benson and Sierra Vista .They are a member of PACC911 to raise the chances of the animals they rescue getting adopted.
Because they save the animals we care for the most: seniors, sick/injured and disabled. We are proud to add our vote to the others FOR this Outstanding Rescue!

Review for Raccoon Valley Animal Sanctuary & Rescue, Boone, IA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

AS shelters do, this one is a leader in the US that I would give anything to have duplicated across the United States! The ability to deal with the challenging situations that pets and their owners sometimes have has been demonstrated well over ten years of service to the Iowa community. Further, we were blessed to have Linda Blakely, the President of this shelter, join our yahoo problem dog email list that grew to service over 25,000 people and still is at 3,000 people with problem dogs now.
She quickly rose to the top managing that email list when the owner had a stroke, helping people online line around the world and joining/managing the 59 person leadership lkst that grew out of the basic group!
Her insights have helped thousands of people with their pets when their owners were about to give up their pets.
Please TAKE A MOMENT TO join donate a few dollars to this outstanding animal sactuary or even join their Facebook here to share their posts!
