Review for Sanctuary One, Jacksonville, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a board member for The Allie Smiles Foundation and a lover of animals, I can say that Sanctuary One and the staff are exceptional! Our 'focused giving' model allows us to support wonderful charities like Sanctuary One. We were very engaged in the concept of 'Care Farming' and knowing that Sanctuary One is the only Care Farm in North America solidified our commitment to being involved. Sanctuary One's mission of a synergistic balance between animals, the land and people is leaps ahead of its time. Great karma, great people, great location... All doing good things! We love Sanctuary One and hope you do too.

Review for Allie Smiles Foundation, Dallas, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a Board member of Allie Smiles, I am pleased we have adopted a Focused Giving Approach; so in addition to supporting canine cancer research we have been able to provide dog houses, veterinary equipment, funds to train service dogs for wounded veterans and other urgently needed items. The staff and volunteers at Allie Smiles are dedicated people who love pets and want to make a difference. The ASF model is unique, the website is extremely interactive and the fact that we have incorporated an online research panel (where supporters passively donate simply by participating in research studies is brilliant). Allie's Blog is an industry 'go to' for K9 information and our on-staff trainer Aaron Stewart is an extremely important value add. I am proud to be a part of such a wonderful community.
