I am a current volunteer there and I also have donated money and supplies for the animals. While I enjoy what I do for them, I am looking to leave now because I don't feel appreciated at all. I never once have gotten a thank you note or a verbal thank you for all the work and hours of time I have put in. I constantly have to go find the volunteer coordinator to find out what I am to do next and the director, nice enough as she is, can rub you the wrong way if you're not careful. She does love love the animals though. The animals are VERY WELL TAKEN CARE OF.They just need to concentrate on their people skills a little better!
