Default "non-profits" and other phoney orgs

Among the various animal help organizations there are some real losers
and some real genuine helpers. The Tucson Humane Society in an example
of the former.

Many of these so called "non-profit" orgs exist mainly for themselves;
sometimes paying high salaries to their "non-profit" employees.

I'm looking to donate a sizeable amount of money, and have located some
animal help organizations that look good statistically. If anyone has
any recommendations of orgs that can walk the walk (direct/indirect care
to animals), besides talking the talk (mailings soliciting
contributions, etc) let me know. Right now I'm leaning towards some
foreign orgs, since most in the USA are big corporations and have lost
sight of their main purpose.

http://www.siameserescue.org They have 5 "centers" across the US. There are
two actual physical centers in VA and TX (with foster homes helping these
out) and 3 centers that are groups of fosters based out of CO and CA. They
do remarkable things for a lot of cats. We just adopted a kitty from them.

some of the feral cat orgs seem to do good work, but as you say, it may vary
from one locale to another.

Have you asked any local vets?

I can recommend quite a number that are great organizations. AzCATs for
example deals with the trap, neuter return program (TNR) of feral cats in
the Phoenix area. They work very hard to do this and definately could use
the money. Their web addy is www.azcats.org. Other great organizations I can
think of is the Arizona Animal Welfare League at www.aawl.org, Sun Cities
4PAWS Rescue at www.4pawsrescue.org and even Benji's Buddies at
www.benjisbuddies.perfinder.com. All are located in the Phoenix area and
I've had a chance to work with all of them and know they take really good
care of the animals they end up getting.

A word of warning about Foreign non-profits. It's much harder to catch them
if it turns out to be a scam than it is the United States.
