Note: I only care because I didn’t know the following stuff. I’m not on some ‘crusade’ because ASPCA keeps getting the funds that your LOCAL SPCA should be getting. It just made me mad that I’m looking at these pictures of boney dogs, and the request for a monthly $25 and it’s NOT feeding dogs! It’s low cost spay and neuter and taking harmed dogs from bad owners!
I had no idea that the ASPCA had nothing to do with my local SPCA! From what I can read in their annual report, they’re mostly spay and neuter in two locations (benefiting less than a few counties nationwide) and then countereducation on animal advocacy. Yay! I saw no information about them actually feeding a scrawny dog. I might not have looked closely enough but you can see for your self.
