does the ASPCA - although based in NY - do any other services in other areas? As in, the NY is just a headquarters?
If so, in the commercials they should be more clear about that.
Any charity I consider I check out - http://www.charitynavigator.org/inde...ary&orgid=3286
As a rule, I do not donate to orgs that pay their COO's a huge sum - like this one - nearly $400,000 a year. They do not need my donations obviously if they can pay him that kind of salary. (I just find it disgraceful - overpaying for a supposedly nonprofit "help unfortunate animals" charity).
I'm donating my car this week to the local SPCA. They have a good rating at charity navigator. I reviewed a whole bunch of charities lately since my car is ready to be let go.
