Would you recommend Refurbished Pets of Southern Michigan?

I started volunteering for Refurbished Pets in the fall of 2008 until January 2010. Now I have moved overseas for my new job, but once settled, I would love to return as a virtual volunteer! The people involved are wonderful -- seriously the best experience out of all my volunteer experiences. The volunteers are knowledgeable, compassionate, and driven to help every dog that they can. They also encourage creativity and leadership in all the volunteers. Most organizations micromanage their volunteers, but RPSM truly believes that the volunteers are the engine of the organization and that every idea is worth exploring. I had zero rescue experience before joining, and they taught me and then gave me the go ahead for any project I was working on. If you want to have fun volunteering and learn something new every day, consider joining RPSM. You won't regret it!
