|Help Others - Provide Feedback
We've been talking about
it for a while - but we still need your help. Every one of the 11,600
organizations in our directory has the capacity to have feedback information
recorded for it. Good or bad - if you have any experience with any of the
organizations in the directory - help out others who are looking to adopt an
animal by leaving feedback for the organization. In many cases people will find
an organization online and have no information to go by other than what is in
our directory or on the organization's website.
Most organizations are
wonderful, caring places. We know however that there are lots of disreputable
ones out there; and we've had concerned users point out several in the directory
that were really breeders (or worse) disguised as rescues.
We're often asked to
remove these entries from the directory; but if we did that they're still out
there online and people are still going to come across them; we'd much prefer
that someone researching one of these organizations be able to find real-life
feedback from people who are familiar with them. Also, if we simply delete the
organization then some other well meaning volunteer might add it back later.
If you know of one of
these organizations and see it in the directory, leave a feedback note saying
so. That way when someone is looking to adopt a pet and comes across this
organization, they have information from a reputable source (YOU) letting them
know to avoid these groups - and hopefully via positive feedback for the good
groups - pointing them to the groups that really are part of the SOLUTION -
instead of the problem.
Browse the directory.
You'll see a link next to every entry in the directory with their "Average
Rating" (the average number of "paws" given in feedback records) and a link to
click on to "Submit Feedback". You have to register to leave feedback, but
registering is automatic, nearly painless, and doesn't automatically sign you up
for any email list or any other bothers. (Basically we only require the
registration because without it our directory gets flooded by spammers).
Thanks to all of you for all
your support! The millions of homeless pets in our country (and around the
world) thank you as well I'm sure.
