Beware of Afghan Dog “Rescue” Exploitation
News has broken that a number of military working dogs were left in Afghanistan. We’ve read several news articles as well as a number of Tweets about the matter.
We are warning people to be skeptical of anyone asking for donations and to be careful of one group in particular: SPCA International.
SPCA International is a highly questionable group that has been exposed for wasting donor dollars. The group recently received an “F” grade from CharityWatch for spending as much as 80% of its budget on overheard.
For more about SPCA International, read the following pieces.
