Those Poor Animals
« on: March 27, 2010, 10:56:10 AM »
For the gullible Americans among us, the rest of you guys can skip this:

You know those Humane Society of the US ads?  with all the poor doggies and kitties?  I'd already decided it was probably a rip off just because of the ad blitz, so an idle five minutes garnered this:

http://www.ag.ny.gov/bureaus/charities2/pdfs/2009_Pennies.pdf       Scroll to page 11

Basically what it says for all of us too preoccupied to look, in 2009 they took in (in New York state alone) $1,950,521.00 and the 'charity' got $103,141.00 or 5.29%. It doesn't address what the ad producers were paid to film all that misery.

I have to quit turning over rocks cause I just get depressed. This seems a good web site to check out other charities, BTW.

Yeah, that's probably connected with the ASPCA.  Reputable people.

I hate those commercials, I usually change the channel when they come on. 
I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.
