My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Asheville Humane Society, Asheville, NC, USA
My role with Asheville Humane Society has taken many forms - adopter, treasurer, volunteer, donor and member of the community served. In all of those capacities, I can say that AHS is an all-star organization. I adopted our most recent addition (Rosy) from AHS and the adoption experience was excellent. The adoption counselor helped us determine if she was the right fit for us and provided us with guidance and resources to help care for our new puppy. And the work began long before we adopted her with ensuring she was healthy, happy, microchipped and ready to meet her forever parents. As the Treasurer and a donor, I am continually impressed with the fiduciary responsibility exercised by the executive director, the employees and the Board to ensure that all money donated to the organization is used to further the organization’s mission and is used efficiently and with great care. As a volunteer, I am offered educational opportunities to increase my effectiveness in my duties and feel like I am contributing in the best way I can. As a member of the Buncombe County community, I believe that our community is substantially better for the efforts of AHS. AHS has saved countless animals, providing veterinary and behavioral support to homeless animals in our community to help them find their forever home. In addition, the organization’s progressive community solutions programs are on the forefront of animal welfare, thinking outside the box to help keep animals in their already loving homes. AHS is an amazing organization!
