Review for Life Unlimited of Virginia Inc, Annandale, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Rikkis is a remarkable refuge for animals, run by an incredible group of individuals who manage to survive on a shoestring all the while maintaining the dignity and humanity of the animals. They need more money, more volunteers and more exposure so that more people can see what a difference Rikkis is making to both animals and humans.

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

the number of animals that have found their forever homes or that have been able to live out their lives with dignity at Rikkis.

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

try and get them more national exposure and grants to ease the financial burden of constanting searching for funds.

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

knowing that the animals are being cared for and that I have had a (small) part in it.

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

unfailing kind and dedicated.

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

probably change the world for the better.

Ways to make it better...

I had been sure they had enough money to survive, especially during the recession.

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

money, money, money and its lack of recognition.

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

I'm grateful Kerry and her helpers are there for those inhabitants of the earth that are voiceless . . . or at least voteless.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2010
