Review for Yavapai Humane Society, Prescott, AZ, USA
Years before I joined the Yavapai Humane Society Board of Directors, I had a great experience with the organization, as a local resident. Nine years ago our daughter finished college and moved to Prescott, Arizona where my wife and I lived. She wanted to adopt a pet. We made several visits together to the Yavapai Humane Society and she did not find the exact dog she wanted to adopt. One day she went by herself and asked to spend some time with a small white Chihuaha that weighed about 2 and a half pounds. Sara sat down and the dog climbed into her lap. This was a match made in heaven. Sara adopted her and named her Mini, reflecting her tiny size. The staff was patient with Sara and took care of her while she went through her search for the perfect pet. This has been a great love affair between Sara and Mini.
About a year ago, I was invited to join the Board of Directors at Yavapai Humane Society. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to find an Executive Director and a Board that operated at such a high level of Commitment to serving a community and fulfilling such a noble cause. I now can see from the inside the incredible service and commitment to the no kill ethic that I first experienced as a customer and resident nine years earlier. It has been a privilege for me to be on both sides of this equation. First to be served by this organization and then to come back and serve the community as part of a greater Team with such a high level of commitment to service.
