|Animals in Distress Joe heeft dit heel mooie verwoord ik denk niet dat er nog iets aan toe te voegen is dit geld voor gelijk welke organisatie. Dus voor je commentaar geeft over stichting lees dit even door. |
DO YOU REALLY KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT?
Someone I know heard a comment and I am amazed and it is something that has also come to me via another person and is as follows:
*I see that Animals In Distress have a new van. They should be spending the money on the animals*
You obviously are way out of touch as to how our charity or how some other charities work for that fact?
But let me talk about our small new van.
Two thirds of the cost of the new van has been paid out of our own personal savings and one third is being paid by the charity at 150 per month for the next 5 years.
A reliable van is needed with big enough space to take cages, dogs, food, taking dogs to vets, collecting goods, emergencies, you name it. We do not run about with a clapped out van costing a fortune to get repaired every time you most need it.
So when you say the money should be spent on the dogs, what do you think that means? That only food and vets bills is spending money on dogs?
Here is a list of where donations go to, but probably not yours as we find the people that gossip are usually people that don`t really support or know much about a charity or get involved with it. If you are involved and don`t ask questions, then more the fool you.
All our animals want for nothing, they are fully vaccs etc as well as castrated/sterilsed but please read below:
