Check with your state or city's Better Business Bureau and State Attorney General's office to be sure the organization is not under any type of investigation for fraud or had an unreasonable number of complaints against it.
In short, be completely comfortable that you know who is getting your money and what they're going to do with it. Any reputable non-profit will be happy to assure you of their IRS status and direct you where to find more information on their stewardship of donations.
We'll keep monitoring this situation and hopefully we'll hear that Ms. Justiniano is cleared of any charges and can continue doing good work for the kitties.
We hope efurryone has a great weekend and Finny & Buddy will be back posting in a day or two.
