My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Mercer Island Eastside Orphans & Waifs (aka MEOW Cat Rescue), Kirkland, WA, USA
MEOW is a member of the Community Cat Coalition and they work very hard with people who do rescue work with our community cats to help them place kittens and social cats that are trapped in feral colonies. I've found their leadership, staff, and volunteers to be very caring and willing to go above and beyond to help all of the cats and kittens that come to be in their care.
Review for Pasado's Safe Haven, Sultan, WA, USA
I am disheartened to read some of the previous negative reviews about Pasados. I have been working with their organization for the past 3 1/2 years and have found their people to be caring, compassionate and very dedicated to helping animals in need. While volunteering for another organization I was approached by a man who had been observing a travel trailer parked on a street with around eight cats and two dogs confined in it. I checked out the situation, contacted one of Pasados animal abuse investigators and they responded immediately, worked with the local police, and removed the animals. They do a fantastic job removing animals from abusive situations, rehabilitating them, and then finding appropriate loving homes for those animals.
Review for Community Cat Coalition, Mukilteo, WA, USA
The Community Cat Coalition is an all volunteer organization made up of individuals and partner organizations dedicated to helping people who help our community (free roaming) cats. The CCC provides training in trap-neuter-return, has equipment available to loan to both members and the general public, provides vouchers for spay/neuter and vaccinations for free roaming cats, and provides assistance with food for people feeding community cat colonies. In 2014 over 800 cats were spayed or neutered and received vaccines either with vouchers provided by the CCC or at one of the 11 spay/neuter clinics that we sponsored. I recently had a free roaming cat from a local trailer park, probably 5-6 years old, that had horribly infected eyes. When he was neutered the vet at the clinic flushed his eyes and diagnosed a condition where the eyelashes curve back into the eye causing a constant irritation. With the help of the CCC surgery was performed, the cat was fostered during his recovery, and now he has been released free of the consistent pain and suffering caused by the eye issue. He is also neutered, has been vaccinated, treated for fleas, and is being cared for by a resident in the park.
Review for OLD DOG HAVEN, Lake Stevens, WA, USA
Old Dog Haven is a rescue group in Arlington Washington that takes in senior dogs that have been abandoned or surrendered. The dogs are cared for in foster homes while they receive any socialization or medical care needed. They then work to find quality homes for those senior dogs that are healthy and adoptable. Hospice care is provided for dogs with severe medical issues. They are a resource for other shelters that have senior dogs that they cannot care for or rehome. Senior animals are some of the most difficult to manage in a shelter environment as they often have health issues and/or become depressed at losing the homes that they have often known for many years. They volunteers at Old Dog Haven who care for these dogs are special people who are willing to open their homes and their hearts to these dogs.
