    I looked at some point last year and they had risen to two stars but now they are back in their normal position of one sad star.

    http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=4239

    When you take the entire category of animal related charities there are 435 reviewed on CharityNavigator. NSAL ranks 404th out of the 435. This is the fine organization that Howard wants people to donate their money to so that he and his wife can get a building for cats named after their dead bulldog.

    They won't even respond to the BBB request for info.

    http://www.bbb.org/charity-reviews/n...ington-ny-4056

    This charitable organization either has not responded to written BBB requests for information or has declined to be evaluated in relation to BBB Standards for Charity Accountability. Charity participation in BBB review is voluntary. However, without the requested information, it is not possible to determine whether this charity adheres to all of the BBB Standards for Charity Accountability. The BBB encourages charities to disclose accountability information beyond that typically included in financial statements and government filings, in order to demonstrate transparency and strengthen public trust in the charitable sector.

    The BBB reports on charities and determines if they meet 20 voluntary standards on matters such as charity finances, appeals, and governance. The BBB does not evaluate the worthiness of the charitable program.

    404/435 means NSAL is as bad or worse than 92.8 percent of all animal charities.

    Buy some animoe calendars!

    The worst part is there are volunteers from that area of LI that really work hard, for free, for this organization, thinking it is a great charity for animals; while lots of "more legitimate" animal charities right on LI suffer because they don't have celebrity balls, etc.

    Administration and fundraising at about 45 percent? What a screw job.

    They advertise as the worlds largest no kill shelter but there are complaints from people who say they refuse to accept sick and older animals and refer the owners to the towns kill shelter.

    North Shore Animal league is a sham charity and should be subjected to a full IRS tax audit.

    I noticed this in the Vermont employment ads recently. Seems odd that NSAL is begging for money to expand their supposedly overcrowded local shelter while spending what must be a fortune to establish a new facility in another state. It's probably another vanity project that some "celebrity" is using NSAL as a front for:

    Pet Sanctuary Director

    We are seeking a Pet Sanctuary Director to work with the Sr. VP of Operations of NSALA to assist in the planning, development and onsite management of a League run Pet Sanctuary to be established in Cornwall, Vermont. One part of the sanctuary will be dedicated to the care of wildlife, and the other part will be dedicated to dogs who are unable to be placed in traditional homes. Once the sanctuary is operational, the successful candidate will be responsible to lead the daily operations of the sanctuary and ensure the appropriate standards of care and client service are adhered to so there is a safe and friendly environment for animals and staff. This is a long term commitment to care for animals and requires lots of hard work and dedication. Business and Pet Behavior related experience is necessary but we will offer transitioning, training and ongoing support to the right person.

    Funny, this is an adjusted balance sheet. Seems to me someone made a late entry; probably into the debit side to record the actual expense(s). :dontknow:

    Dear Beffo Sterns,

    I am a 16 yr old girl that was inspired to volunteer to help puppies and kitties after hearing that old weird man talk about you on AGT, so I looked you up on-line. I don't want you to be mad at me for doing it wrong, like this girl who you had to scold. So I decided to be a model first like YOU!

    I answered the first ad I found and an agent named Mr. Haji said I am booked on the next flight to glamorous Dubai. See you when I get back from Europe!
