I saw a review on the news of an animal charity, might have been SPCA or Humane 
society that frequently advertises on TV and determined that only 1 cent out of 
every dollar goes to taking care of the animals. The recommendation was to give 
to a local *no kill* shelter in your area.
 I've noticed a number of Indian and also American Animal charities popping up, 
showing videos of animals that they rescue, asking for donations. They really 
tug at your heart strings but at the same time, I tend to be skeptical. There 
are so many dastardly crooks out there, trying to make a quick buck, by playing 
on peoples emotions.

Interesting case of a government prosecuting fraud.

They were found guilty of various counts of criminal breach of trust and 
falsification of accounts, although the judge accepted that there was no 
evidence of "wrongful gain" by the defendants themselves.
That lack of personal financial benefit from the fraud meant the judge did not 
impose the maximum sentences of up to 20 years, local media report.
