Where They Went Wrong . . . And Lost A Friend.
There are very few things to do with animal charities which Mummy would say are wrong but a few cases recently have highlighted parts that she doesn’t approve of or like. Whee know animal charities really could do without the bad press right now but this is important. Whee are not aiming this against all charities but some may need to change.
In a newspaper today was the case of a dog who was found by his owners body. There seems to be a rather public outcry about it but Mummy doesn’t really know what to think. You can read more about the story here and make up your own minds.
Another case was to do with another large animal charity here in the UK. The issue – spending a lot on court cases against fox hunting and whee do mean a lot of money. Mummy finds this complicated as although she does believe that these things need to be stopped she fails to see why animal charity donations must be used to deal with a legal situation. Mummy thinks that some donaters are feeling betrayed because they are not sure where their money is going. To court cases? To animal care? Or to funding the bigshots salaries?
Sounds harsh? Whee don’t mean to be. But whee think that people should have a say as to where their donations are going. Mummy would like to make donations specifically towards the care of mistreated animals. Maybe the big charities need to organise things with this. That is why she is now only donates to smaller charities. Charities where everything goes to the animals and no one is paid because it is all volunteers.
Well big hooman charities. This is where you went wrong, and I’m afraid you have lost a friend.
Please tell us what you think.
