Review for Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue Inc, San Angelo, TX, USA

Rating: 3 stars  

I really admire Mark and Amy Meyers for spending their lives helping animals as stodgy and unglamorous as the donkeys and burros. They care deeply for these animals and I want to help them. However, I have a huge problem with the amount ot money they spend on fundraising. According to Charity Navigator, they spend more money on fundraising (46%) than they spend on the donkeys (44%). This is unacceptable! I sent them $300 so far this year. It bugs me to think that nearly half of my money went into the pockets of the over-priced middle men.

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

1. To save money on fundraising, try to get people to donate online as much as possible. Look into a website called networkforgood. They only charge 3% to process donations. 2. In your mailled solicitations, have the return envelopes addressed to your own farm instead of the rip-off processing centers.
