I just want to say that the volunteer director was rude to me when I wanted to pick up an animal at the shelter and bring the animal to an appointment. I had forgotten either the date or time and emailed back to them to please tell me the date or time that I had forgotten and she wrote back to me in a very "lawyer" type way. I was astounded that the person that I had done volunteer work before would even treat me this way and for that reason I did not want anything to do with RASK. Good organization but poor style of getting back to me.
Volunteering at RASKC proved to be a terrific opportunity for me. Not only did I get to walk the dogs and find one I simply HAD to bring home, I was also exposed to other animal welfare programs. I developed what I expect will be lifelong friendships with other animal lovers. And the volunteer manager gave me a terrific recommendation which helped me land my current paid position. Definitely win - win.
RASKC is a great organization that is dedicated to the animals it serves. I have volunteered for many years in different areas and have had the best experience. It is great to feel like my contribution is valuable to the organization and the animals it serves.
