Review for Shadow Cats Rescue, Round Rock, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

While the positive aspects of Shadow Cats as they relate to the care and nurturing of abandoned, unwanted, sick and abused animals is of a profoundly vast nature, there is another more intangible benefit derived from the organization that goes far beyond the realm of animal care and rights. I speak of the process by which Shadow Cats helps develop the inner goodness, compassion and generosity of the people with whom it comes in contact. I am probably the poster child of that which I speak. Long an introvert whose thoughts and concerns were chiefly limited to himself, it was my brief sojourn at Shadow Cats that made me realize the importance in the giving of one’s self to causes and doctrines espousing the greater good; the beauty and satisfaction to be experienced in the helping of those who truly cannot help themselves: it is the doctrine of unconditional love that Shadow Cats develops in those with whom they come in contact. It is the organization’s ability to instill this mindset upon others who in turn propagate this behavior to still others that is truly one of the greatest gifts. When the goodness inherent in this organization and its people touches those on the outside, the benefits are manifold; and the betterment of all walks of life eternal.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the development of myself as a person of compassion and an advocate of achieving the greater good in all of us.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase its scope and capacity.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

finally understanding and embracing the existence of the greater good.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

the warmest, kindest individuals I have ever know and possibly ever will know.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

educate so many and end the suffering and mindless killing throughout a vast area of the southwestern U.S. Its potential would be almost limitless.

Ways to make it better...

I had reached out sooner.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

financial and space limitations.

One thing I'd also say is that...

it has been an honor and privledge to help this wonderful organization and I am a better person for it.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Volunteer & I volunteered my construction skills to aid in the upkeep of the facility. I have since moved to Hawaii but have kept-up with the attitudes and behavior learned from Shadow Cats and am now volunteering my services to another animal rescue facility here in.
