Review for Santa Cruz SPCA, santa cruz, CA, USA

Rating: 2 stars  

They seem to do a good job of placing animals, but I would really like to know where all the money from donations they collected years ago to build the new shelter has gone? I heard they collected millions of dollars, yet there is still no new shelter. Maybe it is related that they seem very disorganized.

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

Open their books. Tell the public how much they collected for the new shelter and when that shelter will be completed.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization?

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  General Member of the Public

We WISH that we had received millions of dollars. In reality, while we have been dreaming of a new shelter for years, the active phase of our campaign has only recently begun. Our architectural plans have been going through the planning and permitting process, which takes time. We are also currently in the silent phase of a capital campaign as we work to secure significant gifts so that we can break ground and take our campaign to the public. All donations which have been received so far have been allocated to the new shelter. Our books are open for all to see on Guidestar, where due to our financial transparency, we have been awarded Guidestar Gold status.
