I prefer to give some every month than to dig deep once a year. I give to my Legal Aid Society and other causes.

I don't know enough to speak to whether the ASPCA is a good cause.

Personally I'd like to see the homes some of these "Charity" CEO's live in.

How much of each dollar donated actually goes to the cause?

50%? Less?

How much goes to the CEO and for "overhead"?

Those commercials themselves are not cheap.

Some charities are much more legitimate than others.

As for the heart tugging ads.....some charities have a lot more savvy marketing departments than others, too.

Of course I apreciate the ASPCA's advocacy, but strays in Cleveland are cared for by our local shelters, and as far as I know, they are 100% reliant on local donations.
