Ohio Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Inc.
July 2, 2013

I learned of Ohio SPCA through a friend that had assisted with a couple of puppy mill rescues. Since my heart has always been with rescuing animals and I was looking to get involved on the front lines I knew this was the organization for me. Not only have I been able to assist with a rescue of farm animals from a deplorable hoarding situation but I have been to the farm to clean out stalls and feed the animals that are being rehabilitated or are living out their lives there. Volunteering with the Ohio SPCA gives me a chance to make a difference in the lives of animals. The farm where animals live peaceful lives, free from harm and neglect is a beautiful contrast to the neglectful, abusive situations these animals come from.

Ways to make it better...

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

Make it easier for people to volunteer. There is a lot of interest out there although I do understand the need for vetting volunteers because of the potential for retribution from animal abusers.

Up until today I had an automatic monthly donation set up and had for years. Today I began researching all of the organizations I currently donate to and am thinking of donating to. I would rather donate to an organization that pays it's CEO/president a minimal compensation rather than one so exorbitant. Defenders of Wildlife pays one of the largest salaries of any of the groups I researched today. I'm canceling my donation.
