Review for Water1st International, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Water1st.org is an established non-profit organization based in Seattle, WA dedicated to providing clean water and sanitation to the poorest of the the poor in several third world countries. My husband I have been donors since it began. Water1st partners with dependable organizations in the countries where they work with the people within the communities themselves who assist in the creation of the water system and sanitation facilities that best fit the needs of the community. A water board usually made up of women is created and funds from the users collected in whatever amount each user can afford (often pennies) so that they can properly maintain and repair the systems themselves, as the need to do so arises. Water1st has very few employees and overhead, and one is assured the donation is used to provide clean water and sanitation. I love Water1st!

Review for Pet Place International Inc, Yucca Valley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Pet Place International is a no-kill animal shelter dedicated to the happiness, well-being and safety of discarded and abused animals. The owner of this non-profit dedicates her life to this work, and she works around the clock to make sure the animals are cared for and nurtured. I have been a donor for nearly a year, and I believe the owner runs Pet Place International efficiently and wisely. I feel that my donations are effectively used to improve the lives of the animals that reside under its care. Pet place international works hard to have the animals placed in good homes, and follows through to see how the adoption works out. I trust this organization completely!

Review for Pet Place International Inc, Yucca Valley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a potential donor to this organization, I did quite a bit of online research. Joan, the owner has been so responsive and provided me with all the appropriate paperwork very promptly including the 501c status, the financial statements, the current non-profit status in good standing with the IRS, as well as the mission statement. I spoke with the Vet that tends to the horses, and they are well taken care of, from what she told me. I have also spoken with a friend of mine that spent an entire day at Pet Place International, and he has had nothing but good things to say about this non-profit organization.
