Animal Advocates Honored as 2012 Top-Rated Nonprofit

Los Angeles, CA, December 06, 2012 –(– “We are thankful to be named a Top-Rated 2012 Nonprofit,” says Mary Cummins President of Animal Advocates. “We are proud of our accomplishments this year helping over 1,000 animals even though our donations were way down because of the economy. We’re hoping that with increased donations, we can help even more animals and people in the coming year.”

The Top-Rated Nonprofit award was based on the large number of positive reviews that Animal Advocates received – reviews written by volunteers, donors and clients. People posted their personal experience with the nonprofit. For example, one person wrote,

“Animal Advocates in Los Angeles, California, and Director Mary Cummins offered reasonable, actionable recommendations that led to the successful resolution of a complex situation involving rabid bats affecting about 100 homes. Mary Cummins was always professional, consensus building, and supportive of finding the best possible outcome for the bats, the public, and the government. With her help, the public health and the welfare of the local bat population were preserved.”

Being on the Top-Rated List comes at an important time of the year, as donors look for causes to support during the holiday season.

“We are gratified by Animal Advocates for its work,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits. “They deserve to be discovered by more donors and volunteers who are looking for a great nonprofit to support.”

Being on the Top-Rated list gives donors and volunteers more confidence that this is a credible organization. The reviews by volunteers, clients and other donors show the on-the-ground results of this nonprofit. This award is a form of recognition by the community.
