Review for Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

GFAS is trying to either shut down or increase fees so good honest accredited caregivers cannot operate in my state of Ohio. They are a part of HSUS which gives less than 1% of its 9 figure yearly donations to actually help animals. STAY AWAY!!!!! GFAS' website lists under supporters HSUS, ASPCA, Born Free and WSPA to name a few.....all of which have some affiliation to HSUS. Thank you Patty for giving me the opportunity to prove how deceitful this organization is.

As this poster well knows, GFAS is not part of HSUS, or any other organization. We are an independent 501(c)3 which thus far has received almost all of its funding from foundations, which appreciate the importance of the accrediting work GFAS does. GFAS is already in the process of helping additional facilities attain accreditation/verification in Ohio. If an organization desires to become accredited, we will help them succeed. More than 50% of the US sanctuaries we verify or accredit have received grants from us to help improve their facilities or how they conduct business. We have helped place 92 animals in need in Ohio, often obtaining the funding needed for transport. GFAS is all about helping sanctuaries help animals.
