My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Austin Pets Alive, Austin, TX, USA
I have volunteered for many organizations throughout my adult life. I expect to see a consistent use of donated funds for their intended purpose. This organization does a good job with that. I would not spend my valuable personal time, usually @ 5 hours per week, otherwise. They do a great job providing care for the animals and getting homes for the animals as soon as possible. In only two years of existence, this organization has come a long way. According to their 2008 990, the brand new organization saved over 700 animals from being destroyed. I have been informed that this number will be closer to 5000 in 2010. The fact that none of the officers, directors, or key employees are paid indicates that this is truly a labor of love. I highly recommend this organization.
