Review for K9 Services German Shepherd Rescue Inc, Green Cove Springs, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have known this non profit for years, from when I was looking to adopt a GSD to be my service dog and can only say great things about K9 German Shepherd Rescue. Seeing these dogs finally have a chance at true love is amazing and while it angers me to see what these poor animals endure prior to arriving to shep camp, it also gives me hope to see people come together and do good as well.
Definitely a non-profit worth all of the support available!

Rating: 5 stars  

As a participant and volunteer for VOA I can wholeheartedly say this Organization is a One Of A Kind. Its Founder/President, Branson Rector is someone who dedicates so much time to helping participants that I wonder if he ever sleeps. VOA makes it a point to ensure EVERYONE benefits from every single program offered, myself included.

I am very thankful to have found them and hope to continue diving for years to come!

Review for Aquanauts Adaptive Aquatics, Inc, Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Instructor O'Brien taught me to dive. His patience and extreme understanding for my abilities and disabilities gave me back the one place in which I'm truly free: the ocean. He then took it a step further and showed me how beautiful AND colorful the underwater world is at night. In each dive during the past 3 years he's slowly taught me how "control" is not something only found through physical strength, but also through my ability to trust and face challenges to the best of my capabilities. As a c4-c5 quad, that is not an easy lesson.
As if that was not enough, he made me an Advanced Diver, a learning experience that I'll never forget. .. How could I when I dove a wreck down at 110 ft deep... Another wreck at night seeing it come to life in a way that words cannot describe... Learning more about our environment and the wonders of marine life, among other things.
All I can say as I wrap up my babbling is that Instructor O'Brien (AND the dive buddies I've had the honor to dive with) are not only amazingly trained, but also made it a point to understand me as a person rather than a disability. Thanks to them I feel confident and free when I dive, forgetting how over 80% of my body does not work... I'm at 100% happiness as we submerge.
Scooba Dooba!!!
