I received an enormous free package from them in the mail with a calculator (ummmm ok), pen, and calendar book. Now why I would need/ want any of that is beyond me. I was rather disturbed by it all since having worked in the manufacturing industry i know that this stuff wasn't cheap. My fist thought was, why the H*LL are they wasting their money sending ME this junk?! i'm a very dedicated animal rights advocate, vegetarian, and sustainable design artist so charities that work to better the lives of animals are always welcome, however i HATE it when they waste their money on ads and 'free gifts.' i saw fist hand that this 'charity' is a scam and not even interested in really helping animals. I'm planing to write to them directly to take me OFF their mailing list. I will never and have never supported them and will advise other to avoid them as well. There are many wonderful charities out there and my 2 favorites are the Humane Society of the United States, Humane Society International. This one is a NO. 0 stars is what this scam charity should get.

Animal Place is a wonderful organization doing amazing work in the lives of farm animals. I have personally visited their beautiful sanctuary and I can tell you it is a very peaceful place. They offer tours and provide a wealth of information about the simple things that we all can do to make a difference in the lives of these animals. The volunteers are passionate and love what they do! Anyone who visits this place will see that farm animals are truly amazing creatures with unique personalities and not just food on your plate. You may change your mind about what you want to eat after visiting Animal Place! cluck! moo! oink!
