Review for Oregon Friends of Shelter Animals, Hillsboro, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteered wuth OFOSA and it truly changed my life for the better and I could not imagine life without the people and animals of OFOSA. We are nearing our 100th foster (we do dogs and cats) and I have logged just over 350 volunteer hours since February 2013 (it is now November 2013), so it is no secret that I enjoy my time at OFOSA. I have been on one transport to Southern CA, and even though everything that couldve gone wrong did(with even the vehicle breaking down), it was one of the most influential things i have ever done with my life. PS. For those of you upset that OFOSA goes down to CA, just realize, they go out of their way in the COMMUNITY as well. They also pull from Bonnie Hays and drive to Eastern oregon just to pick up animals from rescuers when there is a need. OFOSA takes on medical cases, from proken pelvises, bones, extreme cases of cherry eye, and any animal that needs help and that they can get. They also take owner surrenders when space allows. There is definately no rescue or shelter anything like OFOSA that I have ever heard of. I had been a volunteer for OHS before this, but within days of being at OFOSA, I knew I was making a bigger impact there with my time than I would ever make at OHS.

So, if youre looking to volunteer, donate, foster, or adopt, I strongly reccomend OFOSA.

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

Fix the marketing plan. Less lame events that will get nowhere, more big events. ALso maybe more dogs of larger breeds.
