My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Rooterville Animal Sanctuary Inc, Melrose, FL, USA
After looking at the other reviews, I thought Rooterville would be a kind of fantastic petting zoo, but it wasn’t like that at all. We were very surprised. I never write negative reviews, but I think this may be a public service. My family and I love going to animal sanctuaries and zoos, and this is the worst one we’ve ever been to.
It was honestly filthy, gross, and it’s full of pigs swimming around in a big mud puddle. Some of the pigs are pushy and scared our youngest. They only have two ponies, and one of them is too scared to get near you. Plus they don’t tell you they’re Christian and vegan, but those are the focuses of their educational outreach. They spent a lot of time trying to preach to us about being a good Christian by never eating meat again. If you want to get preached to at a dirty, stinky place where you ruin your shoes and get pig snot on your clothes, then perhaps a trip to Rooterville is fine. Otherwise, go to that impressive wild animal sanctuary outside Miami. That was incredible. Or just go to any of the other sanctuaries.
Review for My Angel with Paws, Inc., Deland, FL, USA
Really impressive dedication. What a beautiful organization!
Review for Childrens Advocacy Center of Volusia & Flagler Counties Inc, Daytona Beach, FL, USA
The counseling services offered through this nonprofit were invaluable to our family. Unfortunately, service to Bunnell was discontinued, leaving us in the lurch for services. It's been several years, and we still haven't found a counselor in our price range who can treat our child's PTSD. Most counselors seem to go by a script rather than trying to understand the case in front of them. And most counselors don't work every day with traumatized children. It's been very hard to try to safeguard our son from the political realities behind the severing of the services he needed and try to make him feel safe even when what he needed most, what was actually helping him, vanished overnight. Losing these services has been utterly devastating.
Review for In Harmony With Nature animal haven, Orlando, FL, USA
We had a good time visiting here. I was really happy with the educational component. We definitely felt more connected!
Review for McCarthys Wildlife Sanctuary Inc, West Palm Beach, FL, USA
Really impressive! We had a blast, and it was so much better than visiting a zoo. I couldn't believe how close we could get to the animals, or how well-maintained things were. Everything was really clean, and there were so many kinds of animals. I definitely recommend a visit or two!
