ASPCA - American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
August 1, 2012

The ASPCA wants your money....and NOT to help them care for animals or to shelter/feed/ or even rescue them! I am stick and tired of the ASPCA and other so called 'non-profit' organizations who are really all about PROFIT. If you really want to know how the ASPCA cares for animals, look no further than Animal Care & Control right down the street from the ASPCA headquarters......You see, this is the AsPCA's dirty little secret--they send all the animals they can't be bothered to care for or save down the street to be neglected and KILLED. The truth is far worse than fiction. Shame on you, ASPCA....Time to make amends for all the years of KILLING and neglect perpetrated on the animals you claim to help! Good riddance to Ed Sayres! He will be a blight on your name for a long time to come. Time for a leader who truly cares about animals, not just MONEY!

Perhaps this biggest hypocrit of all.....Raises hundreds of millions each and every year with their misleading tv ads and then sits on their money while beautiful animals are KILLED in shelters across the country......I bet you THOUGHT they helped shelter animals, right? Well, that's what their heart wrenching tv ads want you to think! Look just a little closer and see what they really do to to help shelter animals....and it isn't much.
Shame on HSUS for their relationship with the sociopathic dog-torturer and killer, Mike Vick!! Shame on HSUS for NOT helping so many prescious animals when you have the power, the name and the MONEY to!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I gave them a $200.00 donation around 10 yrs ago to help expose the cruelty of the baby seal hunt.......Yet to the best of my knowledge nothing has changed. 10 yrs later I still get the same pathetic solicitation from HSUS for money to help them "expose" this cruel practice.....They sure can milk an atrocity for all it's worth! I wish I had my 200 bucks back so I could give it to a real Humane Society!

Ways to make it better...

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

Fire Wayne Pacelle. Hire someone who really cares about the welfare of animals. Don't embrace serial dog killers like Mike Vick-EVER! Put some of your millions to good use actually saving some lives instead of stuffing your bank accounts and sending out endless solicitations for MORE money. Stop LYING in your ads and your solicitations....I could go on all day....

HILLTOP HUMANE SOCIETY INC
September 19, 2011

I volunteer for Hilltop Humane Society. In fact, it is run entirely by volunteers and nobody receives any compensation for what they do. If you are looking to donate your money for a truly worthy cause, please consider giving to Hilltop Humane Society. Every penny donated will go entirely to the actualy rescue, medical care and housing of abandoned and injured animals. Hilltop is also a No-Kill shelter and no animal is ever killed due to a treatable condition or for convenience.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Rescued thousands of cats. Found homes for hundreds of cats every year. Provide no-kill housing (cage free) to homeless cats.

Ways to make it better...

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

If I could only raise 1 million for this worthy group. We could show the other "humane" societies what a million dollars can do.

MSPCA/Angell.....Where should I begin? If I could give you negative stars for this review I would! This once great humane society is now nothing more than a bloated, mismanaged, corporate nightmare! This organization has squandered millions upon millions of dollars on their bloated executive salaries and benefit packages as well as throwing away countless millions building massive animal hospitals-only to close the doors less than 10 yrs. later!
They invest only the tiniest of their dollars towards spay/neuter campaigns and they kill HEALTHY animals in their shelters all the time without a second thought.
Don't believe me? Just read their 990's from the past 20 years and then ask yourself where all those countless hundreds of millions of dollars went. The answer won't be towards helping animals.
MSPCA needs a NEW Board of Directors and a clean sweep of their lazy, greedy, full of themselves management. This is NOT the way to run a humane society in the 21st century. Shame on you Mspca!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've known countless people who turned to the Mspca for help for a needy pet and received NONE. I've known countless people who have surrendered HEALTHY stray animals to their shelters only to learn that the animal was destroyed immediately for no good reason. I've spent thousands of dollars in their hospitals only to have my pet treated by an inexperienced veterinary student. Thank God there are other options for emergency Vet care nowadays. Angell will never get another dime of my money.

Ways to make it better...

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

Get rid of the BOD and Management and get with the 21st century of animal sheltering and advocacy. With this organizations vast money and resources they should be ashamed of themselves for how they have FAILED the animals.
