Re: Pets and Hurricane Katrina
- I can only PRAY that Noah's Wish is around if any of our us heart
kitties (YES on topic) ever find ourselves in the same position.
Anyone who would like to view $350,000 salaries and all kinds of
crazy things like that, see for uourselve on watchdog sites like
www.give.org . Any exec WILLING to take a salary of that excess does
not IN MY OPINION have the animals best interests at heart. A few
days ago on FOX, I watch the head of the ASPCA make excuses why they
couldn't go in, yet Noah's Wish had set up came days earlier in
Slidell and actively going in and getting animals out. I am saying
that MY $$$ is going to an org ACTIVELY helping, and that can do so
WITHOUT all of the $$$, power, and lobbyists that ASPCA and HSUS has
at their disposal...I guess it's more important to direct $$$ toward
sending everyone with a mailbox address labels, and TEN FULL SIZE
holiday card samples. I don't have to "make up" things "OFF LIST"
about how "awful" an organization is, when their DAILY operations and
actions speak volumes on their own. OFF my soapbox...
