I’m Angry

Hill’s Pet Nutrition is GREAT for homeless pets. (Click)

That’s not what makes me angry.

Hill’s Pet Nutrition saves more animals, FEEDS more homeless animals, DOES MORE for homeless animals than the ASPCA, the fund raising organization that HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE SPCA and earned a C-rating with Charitywatch.org.

So, you move around the Interwebs and see all these pathetic ASPCA ads begging for money to feed a homeless dog, and almost NONE of it helps a homeless dog, and absolutely NONE of it goes to ANY SPCA.

ASPCA fraud
This makes me so mad. People think they’re helping actual dogs.

The ASPCA is just riding the emotional coat tails of legitimate, animal-helping SPCA’s.

So, at the end of this article is the story of a woman who has spent 11 years of her life volunteering at the Lousiana SPCA. And you look at what she’s doing, and what they’ve done.

Then you think about all those people sending  money to the ASPCA  — –  BELIEVING that they helped this woman, or those dogs in ANY SMALL WAY – –  but they didn’t. At all.

When you donate to ASPCA all you do is pay for more ads asking for more money. Oh, well they do save dogs from research, farms and bad homes. One at a time, usually. Estimates hold that if the ASPCA spent their budget on actual DOGS, and based on how few strays they save and feed, they would be spending $34,000 per dog.

Hills feeds more than 100,000 homeless dogs EVERY DAY.

Hills pet nutrition has put more than $280 MILLION dollars into feeding homeless dogs!

The ASPCA touches the lives of a ten of thousands of dogs every YEAR. (The lack of an “S” after “ten” wasn’t a typo.*)

Let’s see, that works out to:

13,000 divided by 100,000 x 365 = 0.00036

That calculates out to:

ASPCA benefits per 100K homeless animals: .036%

Hill’s benefits per 100K homeless animals: 99.96%

I’m not making this up. Here’s my reference: https://www.activistfacts.com/organizations/american-society-for-the-prevention-of-cruelty-to-animals-aspca/

So, I’m angry.

The ASPCA is just riding the emotional coat tails of legitimate, animal-helping SPCA’s.

Look at what this woman does: Without a DIME from ASPCA. And seriously consider donating to your LOCAL SPCA instead of that ASPCA sham.

So, how DOES the ASPCA spend the money you give them?

They bankroll high profile animal rescues. It’s “what they do” and it’s good press. They’ll go into a back yard or a bad situation and save an endangered dog from bad owners or caregivers. I get it. That’s really nice. So, do your fundraising based on the hundreds of animals you pull out of harm’s way and don’t imply that you’re benefiting shelter animals or homeless pets.

I think it also bears mentioning how much of the revenue is spent on a decidedly Vegan agenda, and toppling the meat industry. Face it, ASPCA is just a ‘soft’ PETA.
