Mission

The mission of Actors and Others for Animals is to eliminate pet overpopulation, ensure good care and protection for pet companions, and provide referral and financial support for economically-challenged pet guardians.

Notes from the nonprofit

We have been in operation for 51 years. A big portion of the pet guardians we serve are under-privileged and under-served. We are there to help everyone as best we can. Many are disabled living only on disability, seniors living on social security, single parents living paycheck to paycheck. Many live in group settings with relatives or friends, and in poorer sections of town. Other animal welfare organizations and veterinarians refer to us. Any feedback we receive that is constructive is always evaluated.

done We demonstrated a willingness to learn more by reviewing resources about feedback practice.
done We shared information about our current feedback practices.
  • Who are the people you serve with your mission?

    The MISSION of Actors and Others for Animals is to eliminate pet over-population, ensure good care and protection for pet companions and provide referral and financial support for economically-challenged pet guardians. We serve low income, and many times homeless, pet guardians in five Southern California counties with spay/neuter and veterinary care: Los Angeles, Ventura, San Bernardino, Riverside and Orange. Our help is financial, and done over the phone. We do not deal hands-on with the pets we serve as we do not have a veterinary clinic. We partner with lower costing veterinary clinics in the counties we serve.

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    We received concerns from applicants we helped regarding one veterinary clinic in particular. More than several applicants reported that they were treated offensively, were not allowed to receive answers to their questions such as when their pet would be seen/and or be able to return home causing additional stress and anxiety. Although we don't have control on how our partner veterinarian clinics operate their business, we were troubled by the multiple complaints and stopped using the clinic.

  • With whom is the organization sharing feedback?

    Our staff, Our donors,

  • How has asking for feedback from the people you serve changed your relationship?
