Bat Conservation International, Inc.
June 2, 2011

I love the work this organization has done to try and save bats. From education and awareness to helping find a cure for White-Nose Syndrome. I've learned a lot from their outreach and hope to volunteer for them when I get the chance. I am proud to be a member and have no concerns when I donate to them.

The Great!

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

my new education about bats and resources I can use to help others.

Ways to make it better...

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

Make the website more user friendly. I had issues finding things.

MY ROLE:
Donor & I learned more about bats than anywhere else, I donated money and adopted a bat.

The Humane Society of the United States
June 2, 2011

Self-serving, tax-evading, and misleading. This nonprofit looks like a umbrella of humane societies or shelters, but it is not. While some of the things it has done, and continues to do, will benefit animals, the agenda of the organization is essentially to separate animals and man...as in extremist vegan and anti-companion pets. The ads I have seen on TV say that my donations go to help the (neglected/abused animals in the pound) but they don't state how. Upon researching, they do it by regulating man's ability to keep animals and how they keep them, not by supporting the animals in the pound, or their vet bills, or to start up/continue supporting shelters.

The Great!

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

It's political support of banning my pets-some of the snake species I love and keep- and thanks to that, I am now limited in the areas I can live.

Ways to make it better...

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

Return it to the original purpose-a non lobbying, non political group of people who actively help care for shelters and the animals in them, as well as helping educate and fund ways to reduce pet overpopulation and abuse.

General Member of the Public & Researched the organization, its leaders, and goals.
