Is the NJSPCA Really Helping Animals?

There’s a lot of controversy swirling around the New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (NJSPCA) these days, much of which began last fall when the organization revealed that it had lost its charitable status for failing to file the required federal form 990, for three years in a row. The leadership of the NJSPCA attributed the problem to an accountant who had a stroke. Having attracted the public’s attention, media outlets, including Walt Kane at News12 New Jersey, and Caren Chesler at NJ Spotlight, have covered these issues extensively.

Below are links to these news stories. You can judge for yourself whether or not this organization, as it is currently constituted, has legitimate oversight by the State of New Jersey, and whether or not it is genuinely serving the cause of animal welfare and fighting animal abuse.
