Note bene: I always recommend donating to local non-profit rescue groups like the two above as opposed to organizations like the HSUS because a MUCH larger percentage of your donated funds goes toward directly helping rescue animals in need. The HSUS, for example, allots the vast majority of donated funds to the salaries of their executives and their aggressive advertising campaigns rather than to the animals in need…..
