Review for Big Cat Rescue, Corp., Tampa, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

BCR is not only one of the nation's best sanctuaries for big cats, it's also an outspoken advocate for eliminating abusive roadside zoos and faux sanctuaries that exploit these animals for profit.

As a result, BCR is a popular target for animal abusers and their enablers. It's a good measure of just how effective their advocacy is!

Review for The Humane Society of the United States, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The HSUS is the nation's most effective and most powerful animal welfare organization -- so effective, in fact, that they are the number one target of smear campaigns from animal abusing corporations who have had to change the way they do business.

HSUS confronts puppy mills, inhumane factory farms, seal clubbers, horse abusers, dog fighters, cockfighters, and dozens of other varieties of cruelty and abuse... And they put an end to it.

I know that my donations are being put to the best possible use by the HSUS!

Goathouse Refuge is a cage-free sanctuary that's doing great work for homeless animals. Please consider helping their program through volunteering, donations of supplies or funds, or by adopting one of their healthy and loving cats.

Review for ASPCA - American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I personally experienced the work of the ASPCA when they rescued hundreds of maltreated cats from the hoarder of Caboodle Ranch. The cats were nursed back to health, rehabilitated, and adopted out to loving homes. Even the ferals were rehomed into new colonies.

Review for The Humane Society of the United States, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

HSUS is an amazing organization with campaigns across the U.S., covering a staggering array of anti-cruelty issues. They are by far my favorite nonprofit! The fact that the HSUS is the target of multi-million dollar smear campaigns funded by puppy mills, factory farms, furriers, circuses -- even seal clubbers -- is a testament to the effectiveness of this organization. They are the #1 enemy of animal abusers because they are the #1 charity confronting cruelty.

Review for CABOODLE RANCH INC, Ponte Vedra, FL, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Caboodle Ranch collected nearly a quarter million dollars in donations in 2010, yet denied cats basic veterinary care. While cats suffered and died in agony, the owner took trips to Las Vegas, bought tickets to Disney on Ice and Daytona Speedway, and wasted thousands of dollars on local motel rooms. At the time of the raid and closure of the Ranch in 2012, at least 29 dead and decomposing cats were found scattered around the buildings of Caboodle Ranch, including two decomposed corpses in a vanity at the back of the "general store". According to the medical records entered into evidence in the custody hearing, more than 95% of the cats were suffering from illness, injury and disease.

Review for NAIA TR FOR THE PROTECTION OF ANIMALS ANIMAL OWNERS & ANIMAL ENT , Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

NAIA is NOT an animal welfare organization.

It is an industry front group defending animal cruelty for profit. Look at its board of directors: circuses, horse slaughterers, factory farmers, rodeo organizers, puppy mill apologists, lab animal breeders and vivisectionists, fur farmers... it's a Who's Who of corporate animal abusers.

This group exists for one purpose, and one purpose only: to defend the ability of corporate interests to profit from the abuse of animals.

Role:  General Member of the Public & investigator of animal welfare charities and industry front groups.
