  1. I think the NY bill should include all animal shelters in that state. In Michigan there is an annual Michigan Activity Shelter Report which includes nonprofits. Foster only groups are exempt from reporting. If more people read these reports or even knew of their existence, they would be horrified to learn that the “humane society” or shelter they are supporting, kills most of the animals it “rescues.”

    1. I agree that all shelters should do these reports. If they are asking for our money (and I don’t know any that aren’t), they should be transparent to the public with regard to the success/failure of their stated aims.
