Review for Animal Rescue League of Iowa, Inc., Des Moines, IA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I retired, friends asked me "Well what are you going to do with all that spare time"..I answered, "Volunteer at the ARL". I volunteer in several different areas of the ARL, I'm a donor, and I adopted a puppy mill doggie. Because I work in these different areas, I see things that many don't. I see the care, love, patience that is given to every animal, medical needs being met, groomer making them pretty as well clean and comfortable, the kennels being scrubbed and cleaned early in the morning every day, volunteers spending time with those waiting for their furever home. Let's not forget about the spay and neuter clinics, the help lines to the Behavior Coordinator, the low cost training available to all. I've worked for major corporations in several states and I don't think I've ever been a part of an organization as well ran as the ARL. Are you a volunteer, a Care Tech, a Med Tech, do you work the Adoption Desk? No matter what your "job" is, you are made to feel that you are an important part of the team. I'm very proud to be a part of the ARL team and in my opinion the ARL deserves to be the #1 on the Top-Rated Non Profit List,
