As you might already know, Ambit Consulting doesn’t just “believe” in giving back… we actually follow through and take action. We’ve implemented processes into our business that result in consistent contributions to society to the best of our ability. For example, when it’s time to “retire” one of our survey vehicles, we believe in passing it on to a good cause or organization – instead of selling it or junking it.
Recently, when it came time for another vehicle retirement party, we chose to give to Pasado’s Safe Haven.
Why Pasado’s Safe Haven?
Pasado’s Safe Haven is an organization that rescues abused or neglected animals and provides any medical treatments they may need. They keep the animals safe in their sanctuary until the animals can find their forever homes. Pasado’s Safe Haven has received full accreditation from Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS). GFAS is the only globally recognized organization providing standards for identifying legitimate animal sanctuaries. Accreditation acknowledges Pasado’s Safe Haven’s exemplary record and innovative methods for ensuring animals they rescue get the highest standard of care.
In addition to animal rescue they partner with local human food banks and other retailers to distribute donated dog and cat food to income-qualified companion animals.
We Love Animals AND Humans
Our passion for donating exemplifies our equal love for humans and our furry friends. In the past, we’ve donated to the Arizona Humane Society (another fantastic animal shelter!) and twice to an organization called Samaritan Aviation.
Samaritan Aviation is a faith based organization that provides supplies for 220,000 people who live along a 700 mile river in Papua New Guinea called the Sepik River. The community is surrounded by a dense jungle with virtually no roads, no electricity, and little to no access to emergency medical care.
With their two donated floatplanes, they provide emergency life flights to the only hospital within 37,000 square miles. Without these life flights, it would take some of these people 5-7 days by way of dugout canoe to get to hospital care.
It’s not difficult to give back
By using our vehicle retirement as an opportunity to give back to our communities, we’re able to contribute meaningfully to the things we care most about. We hope our process will encourage other businesses to implement similar programs. It’s easy to do good (and it feels good, too!).
