Michelson Found Animals (MFA) is dedicated to being a driving force behind improvements for animal welfare in Los Angeles, and volunteers play a vital role in achieving that mission. From 2010-2020, the total number of volunteer and foster hours was over 450,000! Because of that tireless effort, nearly 17,000 total animals were adopted out to a new and loving home. Even with those huge successes in hand, MFA recognizes the need to further maximize its volunteer efforts and community impact.

That’s why MFA is pleased to announce it has received a Service Enterprise certification from Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service. Achieving Service Enterprise certification is a prestigious accomplishment. Organizations that are certified are among the top 11 percent of nonprofits nationwide in volunteer management and organizational performance.

“The assessment, coaching, resources and peer support we received through our participation helped us fine tune and grow our program to provide even stronger operational support. This will allow Michelson Found Animals and Adopt & Shop to further its social impact mission of saving pets and enriching lives.” 

– Lori Hutchins, MFA’s Chief People Officer
