My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Orange County Cavy Haven, Costa Mesa, CA, USA
I found this group through a volunteer organization online. I had fun for a couple of months with them. The lack of organization and passing the buck that went on got old very fast. I recall one woman who had a busy job in finance often doing events alone, or with myself and one other person. People would keep recommending that the supply day events be done the morning of even though it was proven that with the amount of orders doing all the bagging and measuring was not going to work on the morning of the event. I found out I could foster from my landlord. I was barely given supplies, but was given money for veggies given at the time I was not working and could otherwise not afford to foster. I had issues with the woman who runs the group who is never at events - she answered the emails and none of her emails made sense and the bullk of them come across as very passive aggressive. Given the poor organization and the poor delegation of tasks, I would not recommend that you volunteer with this group. They do not abuse the animals but the people who volunteer are not treated well and it seemed like a few of the people - including the leader who has mental issues - were carrying all the weight in an organization with over 42 fosters (at the time I was with it) and somewhere near that many volunteers. They were not good at broadcasting for help even. Just very poorly organized.
