Default Why I Donít Donate To The ASPCA

I donate to North Shore Animal League because the money goes to the dogs and cats, and their work in finding them forever homes.

That being said, I looked up the ASPCA to see where their money goes and how much the animals get. Most of it goes to pay their employees and for tv commercials. They advertise an awful lot.

Out of &152,000,000 received in 2017, only 4 million were used for the animalsí care and feeding. Thatís less than 4^. I think thatís pretty shabby!

So please, do some research on different animal groups to donate to before giving your hard earned money to people.

Thanks for consideration.

I agree. Just because a group advertises a lot or sells a lot of merchandise or puts on big fundraisers doesnít mean they are a responsible charity. Itís good to know others are checking into this, too.

ASPCA is a joke to those who think they are actively rescuing animals! They DO have to rescue some, but their kill rate is so high it's ridiculous! They are really a lobbying group from what I understand, and I'd much rather see my $$$ spent in my local shelter than in Washington feeding politicians at fancy fund raisers! Our local SPCA makes it a point to point out they are NOT affiliated with the ASPCA! Many people do not realize they are two different prevention societies! Peta is associated with the ASPCA and I hate PETA!!!!!

I believe it’s much more effective to donate locally. Our Houston area shelters can use every penny or in kind donation they can get.

The rescue I got my dog from is all volunteer based, so I would rather donate to them for sure.

I am not a huge fan of the North Shore Animal League (which I have been to since it is near where I live, and where I have know some employees). Although as a 501 (c)(3) not for profit entity they do spend more towards rescue and adoption than many other agencies and organizations in this vein, but they bring dogs from all over the world including lots of parvo pups, Korean meat dogs and such. They seem to me to have gone from being a legitimate local rescue and adoption organization to a megalithic entity that is too big to fail and now is stuck on having to rescue rescue rescue when what we all really should want is to see no need for ongoing huge numbers of rescue dogs (and cats). It should be the goal of most rescue organizations to go out of business because they have helped people understand how to keep their pets except under the most extenuating of circumstances. I can see having small local rescues or breed rescues that handle small numbers of animals in extreme conditions, but personally I would much rather see many organizations focus on training in ways that eliminate almost all rehomes.

I didnít know that about them. And I agree, less rehoming. Unfortunately there would still be a need for rescue.

I completely agree. I did not know until I met my dog at her foster home that she was almost 6 years old and had lived with the same family all her life. I was heartbroken for her and for the family that had to give her up. I am thankful she was able to adjust to my home and is such a good fit, because it doesn't always work out that way...and then the rehoming process begins again.

I am happy for you and her that she worked out and fit in well. My first poodle was a rescue also. He had been given up at 7 years because he was doing things that were bad, and somewhat gross. He went through 4 adoptions before I got him. He was perfect for me. Never did a bad thing. He was pretty much perfect for me for the next 9 years. I can only think he was unhappy and acting out everywhere else. And that is just one of the reasons we will always need rescues. There are so many more. In that line of thought I will probably be looking for a local rescue to donate to.
