My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Opkit Kitty Sponsorship Program Inc, Chiefland, FL, USA
Opkit is an amazing organization that I am proud to be affiliated with and support 100%. My first experience was as a cat foster for Opkit in 2013. Impressed with the work they were doing to save cats in high-kill shelters I joined in as an Opkit member. Members would donate funds as a group which would then be sent to cat rescues so that necessary vetting could be done, resulting in hundreds of cats being saved throughout the nation. It was so satisfying to see that we were making a difference in cats' lives. Opkit's good works continued when it founded the Tails Up No-Kill Animal Haven in northern Florida, providing a safe home, love, and medical care for life to its resident cats, dogs, and horse. I have been a monthly sponsor of one resident kitty since its opening and enjoy all the photos and progress reports we receive about day to day life at this beautiful sanctuary. It meant enough to me to try to move nearby to help out upon my retirement in 2017. I now volunteer at Tails Up and see for myself the love and care these lucky souls receive. Being around those dear animals is such a comfort and I'm blessed to be able to help out when I can. It also drives home just how much work is involved and I am so impressed by Jamie's amazing dedication to these precious animals; it is truly a labor of love. One year ago I became a Board Member and am honored to be involved with such an amazing organization. So to sum it all up, I've been a foster, donor, sponsor, volunteer, transporter, board member, and am currently fostering another kitty saved through Opkit's efforts. I have taken this journey with Opkit because I believe in it, and have seen the difference that has been made in these animals' lives first hand. I know of the dedication and effort that is involved and have the utmost respect and admiration for its founder Jamie, who is one of the most ethical, caring, and dedicated persons I know. I am proud to be associated with Opkit and look forward to many more years of involvement with their endeavors. They are making such a huge difference in cats lives.
