My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Help of Raymore, Inc., Belton, MO, USA
It is hard to know where to start with my review of HELP Humane; I have had many different roles! : -)
I first heard of HELP at a Feral Friends meeting in Kansas City; this meeting was focused on Trap/Neuter/Return, an issue I had quite recently studied and embraced. (I am still very active in TNR.)
I subsequently visited HELP to participate in a TNR project and fell in love with all the HELP cats. This led to a weekly volunteer night of scoop/water/feed, which made me even more familiar with the cats, to the point where I was convinced I had my own "fan club" in a particular room (nope; they loved everyone, which was even more awesome.) When the Shelter Buddy program started, I joined, and I also contributed to various HELP causes as I could (there were quite a few of these over the years; I would have to check my tax receipts; remember, everyone, that donations to HELP are tax deductible!)
One thing I would like for people to keep in mind--there are many wonderful reviews of HELP's treatment of their animals, with lots of references to how happy and safe the animals are. Well, it's true, they are! But please, everyone, keep in mind that if you adopt from HELP, you are still saving a life--any animal you adopt from HELP gives HELP a chance to save an animal who is not yet safe! HELP rescues animals who are in need, so if you adopt from HELP, you save a life, because you have now given a spot to another needy furbaby!
