You know I understand what the ASPCA does is a good thing. I do get that, but I want to know how many people send them money thinking they are helping their local humane society or shelter. I also want to know how much of that "donated" money goes towards their commericals, t-shirts, and cool wrist band you get when you join. Some stations run that commerical almost every hour or more in the evening. You all know that are not getting them free. Cheap maybe, but not free.
Please, if you want to help the ASPCA, go ahead, but also keep in mind that your local rescues, shelter, etc. need help also. Don't just think the ASPCA gives all that donated money to others, help local as well as abroad. Everyone needs help somehow, and everything counts.
Wow Juno, I have to agree that is freaking crazy!!
Personally I try to support smaller rescues rather than the large organizations. The more people involved the more BS there is, and money issues. I dont support my local SPCA for the same reason, there is a lot of disfunction locally, let alone the rest of the SPCA.
I wonder the same thing about those feed a child groups. One has been running, in canada anyway, for over 30 years, yet their commercials NEVER EVER show a success story, I mean wouldnt that be a way to draw people in?
