Review for Raptor House Rehabilitation Center, Yakima, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I made a visit to the raptor house as one of many stops during my vacation. As a former birds of prey educational speaker, I thought it might be interresting to see the difference between this facility and the one I worked with. Back in 2006 Marsha had only a barn. I've kept in touch & watched her grow over the years. She has really come a long way & with very little to work with. I could just immagine what she could do with all the resources she needs. While there, we toured her facility & she gave me an education on things I didn't even know about. Marsha doesn't just work with wildlife, she lives it. It takes a very special & dedicated person to do what she has done.

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

take more pictures and post information about them on the website. Aslo become a member of a social network like facebook. That is a good way to advartise especially for those far away. It also lets people see what cause they are really helping.

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

the passion, love, and dedication I saw for these animals in need.

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

warm, friendly, educated, and had a wealth of information to give to all who would listen.

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

Be bigger to house more in distress, bring more people in to help, advertise more to get the word out, and travel further to save more lives. It could make such an impact.

Ways to make it better...

I lived closer so I could give more. I would like to have been a volunteer.

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

Resourses. The Raptor house has needs to function. In todays world, it's harder than ever to have those needs met. Can't drive a car on fumes all the time. Lets give it some gas.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
