Of course, Spokesman Adams declined to divulge the total budget for each of the shelters being closed: Brockton, Martha’s vinyard, and Springfield. Given how hard-hit economically Brockton and Springfield are, animals may die to keep those four men earning their cool million.
More than one big donor has walked away from the MSPCA over its commitment to a fat elite over safe animals:
Lou Whitney, the co-owner of DoggieDay, an animal-care service located in the South End, said his business has helped raise more than $30,000.00 for the MSPCA in recent years but will not participate in any future fund-raising efforts to benefit the society because the money doesn’t directly go to caring for the animals. “We’ve severed our ties with the MSPCA for this specific reason,” Whitney said. “We found the MSPCA to be a place where people were looking to secure financial positions for themselves, rather than focusing on helping the animals. I think that insread of paying out those ridiculous salaries, they should use the money to make sure they’re providing a service to the community.”
I will go one better – when I donated to the MSPCA I thought the money went to take care of dogs and cats – not Four Fat Cats.
