“The Animal Support Project (TASP) is based in the Capital Region of NY. TASP performs Crisis Intervention directly with companion animal owners to keep animals living with their families. In extreme cases where no other solution is possible and space is available, we will foster and re-home animals to ensure their best interest. We are the region’s ONLY all-volunteer, all-species companion animal safety net.”

It won’t cost you a penny to do this but it could help save an animal’s life.

Greatnonprofits.org is the site where donors go when they want to donate to a charity, to see what that charity’s value is to the community. Organizations with lots of good reviews have the opportunity to receive more donations because they’re putting the donations to good use.

Donations are what made it possible for TASP to help you and your pet(s).

Would you please post a review to help more deserving pets who need TASP’s assistance?

Thanks for loving your companion animal enough to ask for TASP’s help.

I hope you will take the time to post a review so when the next pet owner reaches out to us, we won’t have to turn them down.

Thanks for caring!

Warm regards,

….Melinda and TASP: Top Rated Nonprofit!
