Would you recommend The Animal Rescue Alliance (T.A.R.A.)?
As someone who has both worked for and volunteered with a lot of not-for-profit groups, I care about whether the people involved really care about what they're doing, and whether their money is being used wisely. Good news - for TARA, it's yes on both accounts, and that's why I've been a regular volunteer for 6+ months!
T.A.R.A. is a great organization! I started volunteering with them almost 2 years ago and it has changed my life. Every member of this organization is just as important as the next. It has been a very fulfilling and rewarding experience. I have had the opportunity to save the lives of countless dogs and cats. I look forward to many more years as a T.A.R.A. volunteer!
I first started volunteering after I adopted a dog from T.A.R.A. They are dedicated not only in rescuing the animals, but do everything they can to make sure the right dog/cat is placed with the right family so they find a "forever" home instead of being placed back in another shelter. They are a wonderful organization that needs more volunteers and donations in order to give more animals a second chance at life.
Great organization, with wonderful volunteers who do everything possible to help homeless pets in the Kansas City area. Keep up the great work!!!
