Review for Animal Lifeline of Iowa, Carlisle, IA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have adopted, volunteered and been a donor for Animal Lifeline of Iowa... a no-kill animal shelter that support orphaned, abandoned, pregnant, handicapped or animals that have health issues. This is an amazing organization that stretches every dollar they receive and does a tremendous job working to secure donors and support through discounted or volunteered services or products. They are kind, amazing group that takes amazing care of dogs and cats in need. I would highly recommend them as an worthy organization for donor or volunteer support. JE

Review for Animal Lifeline of Iowa, Carlisle, IA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Animal Lifeline of Iowa is one of the most caring animal facilities I have ever known. It is a special needs no kill shelter which is dedicated to giving animals a chance for a happy life when other shelters might not because of the expense or time required to repair their injuries, give them the veterinarian care they have been denied and take care of the orphaned, pregnant and nursing cats and dogs that live here until they find their new forever homes. The dedicated, professional and loving staff have inspired a multitude of volunteers who share ALI's mission of making these animals ready for a new life of love. With no government funding, Central Iowa's no-kill shelter for special needs animals relies on the generosity of donors, patrons of its Thrift Shop and fundraisers which include a dogwash (june 19th 10-2) and Its Paws and Claws Annual Dinner/auction this October 16th at the Des Moines Downtown Marriott. The animals and Iowa is lucky Animal Lifeline successfully cares and makes whole animals that spread countless joy and love to families across Iowa. I have adopted many animals from ALI that have given me countless joy and love and my experience with them is absolutley fabulous and I would whole heartedly recommend anyone look to Animal Lifeline for an animal, a chance to volunteer and to contribute.

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

Countless ways. From the animals I have adopted to the families that are changed by the animals that come from ALI, everyone who comes in contact with this exceptional organization is forever changed for the better. It epitomizes love and joy.

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

Make more aware of ALI and its important mission so that they can join us is saving these precious animals that need a helping hand to become loving, loyal companions that will be an integral part of their family. Money is always important.

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

being given the chance to be a part of this incredible organization that helps the animals that most need the help in the most loving and kind way with superior medical care.

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

Exceptional individuals varying in age and lifestyle. Each is a caring and incredibly gracious individual dedicated to making these animals lives wonderful.

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

Build a new and larger facility next door to the veterinarian clinic that helps these animals 24/7 with tlc and expertise that is surpassed by none. These animals make exceptional family members.

Ways to make it better...

Nothing could be said that is negative about ALI.

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

Raising money to care for the endless stream of abandoned, abused, and injured animals which has dramatically increased during these trying economic times.

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

If you get to know Animal Lifeline of Iowa you will become a fan for life. It will change your world.
