A 'Seattle Slew' son saved from slaughter.
Many organizations that claim they are non-profits simply are not. In addition to checking on Guidestar (which lists both Federal and State 501's), donors can check with the IRS.
Donors are encouraged to check the credentials of any rescue organization before writing that check or sending that donation via PayPal. It is a shame when donors get 'taken for a ride' as this prevents valid non-profits from getting donations as there is only so much to give!
