Ain't it funny how the ASPCA shows you these commercials about the sad, helpless, and injured animals? When at the same time these commercials prove that it is not as important to care for these animals immediately but to make you feel bad to pull in extra dollars by continuing to leave these animals in cages and helpless situations longer as they must take hours ( more hours minutes or even seconds that these animals must suffer) to set up their cameras and walk around photographing these poor animals. But, instead of releasing these animals and getting medical care immediately they walk around and leave them helpless while fulfilling their own agenda first in order to stuff there own pockets with as much money as possible. These commercials are proof of only one thing. That the ASPCA doesn't care of the immediate attention of these animals which may only have seconds left to live but instead to get the correct shots for their money making commercials first. I would never donate money to such an organization with the lack of respect for life as the ASPCA. Don't judge a book by the cover. Open it up and have a more broad view of the situation.
