Review for Hope For Paws, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I would give Hope For Paws five stars if I were rating them as a video production company. Their slickly edited videos are very moving, and on more than one occasion inspired me to donate to what I thought was a wonderful organization. But once I began to look for more information about them, my support quickly turned to suspicion. According to charitynavigator.org, HFP has assets of over $2 million and reported income of $3.8 million. But Google maps shows their address as a mailbox store. There isn't a lot of tangible information about how many animals they have found homes for, or documented follow-up to their heart-tugging rescue videos. There are, however, court documents and reports from shelters that call into question their integrity. Although I would like to believe in them, HFP just seems too questionable for me to continue to donate. I'll support my local shelters instead.
