My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for North Shore Animal League America , Inc., Port Washington, NY, USA
For several years I donated to this charity because it advertises 'the largest no-kill shelter'. I am not in their area so I assumed their facility was as their beautiful website portrays it. Eventually I got a chance to visit and was very upset to find out what the place is actually like. I gave hundreds of dollars to these people and the animals and environment aren't even kept clean. Most of the workers don't seem to know what they are doing. For the amount of $ that I donated to my sponsor animal every month, he should have been living in the Taj Mahal!
I cancelled my sponsorship but they kept sending me mailings and emails. I finally had to change my email to get them to stop even though I asked them to take me off their email and mailing list. Once you give anything to this organization they will NEVER leave you alone and NEVER stop asking for more money. They probably look at all donors as "suckers" or "cash cows" to be milked for every possible dime, to finance their glossy mailings and high-tech websites.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Learning how much a charity can mislead donors about what they are really like.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Respect people's requests to be taken off email and snail mail lists!
