Would you recommend America for Animals?
I too had a similar experience as Elizabeth B and Anne M. I expressed interest, received an initial email, and then dead silence. My family is already heavily involved in Animal rights, and I saw this as a perfect way to use my professional skills to help. Not only is the posting still up, it is listed 4 times.
Also, they clearly need help. On this page (where you write reviews) they copied and pasted their Mission Statement and Description with the HTML paragraph tags.
Great cause but unfortunately, I am going to update this review.
I had a bad experience with this organization. I send an e-mail, they reply and offer me an interview. 1 month after, no call. I send 4 e-mails, no response. I send a negative review on Volunteermatch and suddenly, they send a message to try to figure it out! After several messages with a RH volunteer interested in my application, I re-sent a cover letter and a resume and they answer me (in the Sunday evening and no closing formula) that they are not interested in my application anymore and I don't fit for the position!
This organization has good ideas but wants to empower people throughout new technologies and unfortunately, they have real communication issues...So great cause but so disappointing!
America for Animals is doing great things for animal welfare. The all-volunteer team is made up of people passionate about helping animals and improving their communities. A wonderful organization to work with!
