Review for Asheville Humane Society, Asheville, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I moved to Asheville with no knowledge of local charities. I went to an event run by Asheville Humane Society and my mind was changed. Engaged staff, educational volunteer program, clean and safe facilities... all meant these were my people. I learned animal body language, customer service, animal behavior - all free and all taught by pros.

I've now been with AHS for over 5 years and in that time I've adopted, fostered, joined committees, chaired a committee, hosted a fundraiser, and am a regular donor. If I were just one of these roles, it would be interesting, but since I am happy and proud to fill all of these roles, I think that proves AHS's commitment, sincerity, ability for compassion and change, and desire to always be the life-saving force in their community.

(Greatnonprofits asks me to choose a role, so I chose my most important one: volunteer.

This place should serve as a model for other humane societies! They treat their volunteers, staff and animals with respect, care and dedication. The volunteers there have continuing classes and interesting new assignment options available to them. They work closely with the community to keep pets with their families instead of ending up at the shelter - through pet food pantry, low cost vaccine clinics, flea/tick/heartworm medicines and so much more. The animals are kept immaculately clean and they work tirelessly to give all animals there enrichment.

Thank you very much, Writer. We are very proud of our volunteer program! Together you and our other volunteers perform the work that we otherwise would have to pay staff to do, and that saves AHS about a million dollars a year. And that means that money can instead fund our programs and give every animal a life worth living.
