Review for ANIMALS ASIA FOUNDATION LIMITED, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I donated to this charity for several years, but this year the website was malfunctioning and I could not register my donation. I sent an email to AA about the problem but never received a reply. So I crossed them off my donation list, assuming that they didn't want my donation.

Review for Heifer Project International, Inc., Little Rock, AR, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Every year I send this group an email asking them to stop sending me their catalog, and every year i get their catalog in the mail! I am totally against what they do with live animals, treating them like they're nothing but commodities to be bought and sold, sending them to poor people who then often turn around and sell them to get some money because they can't afford to take care of them. Dealing in the animal trade does not seem to me a worthy or realistic charitable endeavor at all, and I'm sick and tired of their ignoring my repeated requests not to bother me with appeals.

How did you learn about this organization?

through animal rights groups

Role:  General Member of the Public & I did not approve of their charitable methods.

Review for DIAN FOSSEY GORILLA FUND, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 3 stars  

Saving endangered gorillas is certainly a good cause, but DFGFI has an annoying habit of sending a lot of appeals for more money. I get something in the mail from them it seems like every month, even after I've sent my annual donation. I would prefer that this charity spend less on paper and postage and more on the gorillas themselves.

Role:  Donor & I was a donor.
