If you want to give a donation to help some dogs in need, then give to your LOCAL Animal Rescue group or Shelter. Whatever you do, do not give to H$U$ or PETA unless your goal is in keeping the the ideals of eliminating all domestic animals, the bulk of the human population or domestic terrorism. Harsh words about a soft topic? You bet, and will good reason. See below for something I didn't write, but that I truly believe every dog, cat, or other animal owner needs to read, think about and then pass on to at least 50 other people. Now that would truly be in the best spirit of giving.
Please give to a local animal welfare group you know and trust. Remember, "friends don't let friends give to HSUS or PETA" or groups that are affiliated with them.

Why is the Humane Society of the United States Helping a Terrorist Group Raise Money?
On Saturday, a Humane Society of the United Stats vice president will deliver a keynote speech at a fundraiser for an animal-rights terrorist group.The Humane Society of the United States claims to oppose violence in the name of animal rights. But on Saturday it's helping raise money for the Humane League of Philadelphia, an organization allied with a vicious, violent gang of convicted animal rights terrorists.
The Humane League of Philadelphia was founded as "SHAC Philly," a chapter of Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC). The FBI calls SHAC a "terrorist" group. It's tactics have included death threats, violent assaults, blackmail, and arson. In 2006, SHAC was convicted on federal terrorism charges. It's national leaders remain in federal prison. Also in 2006, the Humane League of Philadelphia's president was convicted of Making Terrorist Threats against an employee of a drug company.
According to media reports, he threatened to kill her children. Judges have issued three different restraining orders against the Humane League of Philadelphia and its president, in order to protect biomedical research companies and their business associates from violence, vandalism, stalking, and identity theft. The Humane League of Philadelphia is required by law to post these restraining orders on it's own Internet home page. (Following is a diagram with boxes and arrows, showing the evolution of the Humane League of Philadelphia.)
