Review for American Humane Association, Washington, DC, USA
Delusional new CEO Robin Ganzert has destroyed this once-decent organization. She’s fired all the people that did good work helping children and animals with her executive buddies who get paid an awful lot of money to sit around, pat each other's backs, and come up with asinine ways to make more money and get more publicity. If you donate to the American Humane Association, you can rest assured that your money will go to what Ms. Ganzert considers worthy causes: funding these executive salaries, giving a humanitarian award to Martha Stewart (yes, really), hobnobbing with various C-list celebrities, and flying around the country (or out of the country, like her recent trip to Japan) to get her face and name in as many news articles as possible. But knowing that they can’t count on the general public to fund all of their jet-setting and lavish parties and doggie award shows, the management has made sure to partner with some really evil mega-corporations, like Pfizer and Proctor and Gamble (because nothing says we care about children and animals like taking money from corporations that kill children and animals). They are constantly making a point of congratulating themselves for making more money and getting more publicity but never say a word about the good work that is being done for children and animals - - probably because no good work is happening anymore. Before Robin Ganzert took over, I loved my job and believed in what I was doing, and now I’m thrilled to be gone and wouldn’t want to touch this super-corporate organization with a 40-foot pole. Disgruntled? Absolutely! It’s a hollow shell of what it used to be. Robin doesn’t care at all about the animals or children and once she’s finished ruining the American Humane Association, she’ll be trying to move on to work where her slimy, despicable behavior is better suited: politics. (Does anyone really think it’s a coincidence she killed the Denver headquarters, and put the new headquarters in Washington DC?)
