Not that I mind if people earn a decent living, but according to their 2011 Form 990, the 3 senior vps and 7 of the 8 regular vps make more money than the sr. vets! The CFO makes over $166,000 a year while the Sr. VP of marketing makes over $173,000. The medical services director makes much less at $110,000, and the three sr. vets make just over $100,000. I don't live in NY so I am not aware of their cost of living, but I was surprised how much administration employees make in relation to the medical staff.

It's a shame that this organization pays so much to the CEO. That alone will keep me from donating to them. Other CEO's who make this much are bringing in 4 times the donations, so maybe they're worth it, but this CEO should be ashamed of him or herself.

Dog poop on the floor, dog poop on the ceiling, flaming dog poop on my front porch after I complained about the dog poop on my dog. They should call this place "North Shore Animal Feces", because that's all you get when you step foot/animal foot into the building. Also, not that it's their fault or anything, but they are in the sketchiest part of Port Washington, and although I can't prove it, I'm pretty sure they keep releasing rogue feline agents in an attempt to build a guerilla stray cat army to topple the North Hempstead regime. Scary doog poop. I stepped on a broken bottle walking down that street in flip-flops, and none of the animals lifted a paw to help me.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The amount of poop in a paper bag left on my front porch. It was on fire, and while I tried to stomp the fire out, I discovered the contents of the paper bag were, in fact, poop.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Investigate my own claims regarding the stray cat army, do something about the dog poop, and possibly open a mongolian barbeque.
