    Hey everyone,
    As some of you may know last year we did our 1 Like for 1$ Campaign for the food bank up to one thousand dollars.. ( http://www.uoforum.com/threads/ultima-online-forever-facebook-campaign.48221/ ) We ended up obtaining just over 500 likes, however we decided to donate the full one thousand anyways.



    This year we have decided to help out the furry loved ones!
    We have placed a special donation box at the bank.
    For every 100 donation coins placed into this chest, we will donate :
    $0.50 to ASPCA (https://www.aspca.org/) and
    $0.50 to HSC (https://www.humanesociety.com/)

    [​IMG]

    The kicker? Ultima Online Forever will DOUBLE the amount, which means for every 100 coins, $1.00 will goto ASPCA and $1.00 will ALSO goto the HSC.

    Be a part of something great!
    Feel free to post photos of your pets below!



    BONUS:
    EVERYONE WHO DONATES WILL RECEIVE A SPECIAL GIFT.
    TOP 5 DONATORS WILL RECEIVE A SPECIAL GIFT PLUS A BONUS GIFT.


    Thank you in advance,
    Ultima Online Forever Team

    "In 2013, the ASPCA only gave $4.9 million to support animal shelters, a mere 4% of its $129 million budget" ??

    I manage a kennel/ animal rescue. Local is the way to go when it comes to these kinds of charity's. Humane society or even to a local rescue group.

    The actual number they give to shelters is up for debate.

    This is a good article to read though. http://www.examiner.com/article/merry-grinch-mas-the-truth-about-aspca-and-hsus-spending

    Some quotes

    "The ASPCA is one of the largest and most profitable ACG charities in the country, but it is located in New York. There are an estimated 3,500 animal shelters in the United States, some of which are SPCAs and some of which the public believes are HSUS-affiliated. The perception that your local SPCA shelter is linked to the ASPCA and therefore will receive some portion of the donations you make to the phone number shown during commercials like Sarah McLachlan’s ad is false."

    "At the high end, some claim as much as just below 50% of donations goes to the animals. At the low end, there is a growing group of critics claiming the ASPCA uses only $11.00 of every $100.00 donated on the animals. In order to get an idea of the most likely situation for yourself, consider these verifiable statistics regarding how many animals the ASCPA “saved” in 2012. The ASPCA themselves claims they saved 4,000 dogs last year. Their IRS statement for 2012 shows $226 million dollars in gross receipts. Let’s be generous and say the ASPCA gives half its donations to the animals. That would mean each dog was given $28,250 of care and supplies"

    If you are willing to change charities I would suggest finding a "no kill" local shelter near your area.

    Ask @Elder Llama- he may have better insight into finding a needy shelter.

    If it were me I would just find one local to you, take them a check and get a photo of you dressed up as a wizard with a bunch of animals around you

    e: here a pic of my dog having at his latest sex toy

    'face down ass up biiiitch', he says with a smile

    There are animals that need homes everywhere. No matter where you choose, you will be doing good. My business is connected to and funded by our local Humane Society. They send us rescue cats and dogs when they run out of room, and we do our best to get them homes from there. So I know from experience that all of the HS money goes back to the animals.
