Review for AMERICAS VETDOGS- THE VETERANS K-9 CORPS, INC., Smithtown, NY, USA
I am a volunteer weekend puppy raiser in Massachusetts and have found my time volunteering with America's Vetdogs to be one of the most rewarding experiences. I am raising my second puppy, and am immensely proud of the successes of my first dog. Volunteers support one another and trade tips and advice and it is a great community to be a part of. I haven't yet visited AVD's parent organization, the Guide Dog Foundation, in New York just yet, but I look forward to seeing the impact of my time volunteering with AVD in the very near future. From other volunteer experiences I know that veterans are among the most appreciative and humble "customers" and I'm thrilled my sometimes selfish desire to have a puppy around to play with and socialize is serving the greater good in such a meaningful and lasting way.
Review for Hire Our Heroes, Leesburg, VA, USA
Volunteering for Hire our Heroes provides such a wonderful opportunity for me to use my professional skill set to help veterans in need of assistance. The burden on me is minimal, the schedule flexible, and HOH is really tuned in to matching the needs of veterans to those who can help. Those we serve as so grateful and positive and have the kindest responses to my communications. I believe more people would volunteer if they new volunteer opportunities like those HOH offers, and with such a wonderful "customer" base, existed!
