Review for Native Animal Rescue, Santa Cruz, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Since volunteering with Native Animal Rescue over a year ago, I've become the house photographer and the administrator of the web page and Facebook page. In a typical week I'll photograph the new arrivals (orphaned or injured native animals), update the web page, and post stories and photos on the Facebook page. While doing this work, I've been able to observe the staff and volunteers who deliver direct animal care. They are a devoted group of people who strive to provide the best care to the animals with the aim of returning them to the wild. I am repeatedly deeply moved by the work done by this organization.

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

the increase of Facebook fans, the increase in volunteers, the increase in on-line donations.

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

raise sufficient funds to enlarge the intake center.

Would you volunteer for this group again?


For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?


Did the organization use your time wisely?

Very Well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?


When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

improved the lighting in the intake center.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

As a retiree, this ongoing experience has provided my life with purpose, enabled me to practice photography, enabled me to learn new computer programs.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?
