I know I said yesterday that I won't give money to the HSUS because I don't like their policies.
I usually recommend supporting local rescues and shelters.
However, I was just reminded that you should also check these out before donating.
Find out what policies the shelter has before donating.
Does every animal get a fair behavioral assessment?
These cats didn't.
Hat tip to Smartdogs.
Another question to ask is what are the conditions at the shelter?
Hat tip to Raised by Wolves.
Neither of these shelters would get my support...aside from removing animals to rescue groups that are prepared to foster them.
Just something to think about. :)
