My comment was not directed at you Inplub I was reffering to multiple other avenues/websites where the issue is being debated.

Thank you to SAGA for publishing on its website yesterday an independently audited financial report for the first time in 10 years. Hopefully a step in the right direction toward a more transparently operated non-profit.

Who gives a [#%!] about staff and all your nonsense blablabla... When I have donated to Saga I've done it because I know it has been put to good use for the benefit of animals, not people!!!

So what's next? Should I insist on financial statements because I donate to Baby Daniel?

If you don't think that the money are handled correctly, ask directly or don't donate. It's not complicated...

Some of you are just promoting your own ego and (what you believe to be) your intelligence. A bunch of mesage board diarrhea, if you ask me...

It's about animal welfare suffering because of idiots who have nothing better to do than to boost their egos and do politics, which life is too short for anyway.
Y'all should be ashamed of yourselves.
This is just more bad advertising for A.C.

There is nothing political or egotistical about inquiring as to financials of a nonprofit, or asking how many people SAGA employs at nearly $100K annually. This is the first time in 10 years SAGA has published its financials in any sort of proper form. I have thanked them for this.

I will continue to donate non-monetary items to SAGA for its shelter operations. I have stated repeatedly that I signed the petition to the Vet Board supporting SAGA's request. I have questioned SAGA's and some of its supporters' assertions as to fact and I guess that makes me a meanie.

Just because we don't drink the SAGA kool-aid and have questions does not mean we don't love animals and want animal welfare to suffer. Get a grip.

I didn't say it was too much - it is no chump change however, and inplub should be able to ask how many employees among whom it is apportioned, no? It's just weird how any question is perceived as threatening, when it is simply a question for clarification. Why get all riled up? WE SUPPORT SAGA!!! and have for 10 years.

I went to there site and it shows 2 members of staff full time and a Vet (obviously they don't have a vet right now)

As people have said before why not call them and Ask they seem to be very forthcoming.

Shame on who ever is taking part in the Saga bashing - is all I say.
You are not helping the island. Call, E-mail or post on their facebook site if you have questions for Saga...

Gaz, I have unfortunately an entire collection of emails between SAGA and others and myself asking politely for information about projects and open books and being told maybe, no, later, etc. anything but yes. This is the first I've seen of any financials, other than some very confusing and questionable numbers on the build out of the shelter building and iso units. Whatever the case may be at this point, I wish them well to carry on providing shelter services - if they get the vet license that will be fine by me too. Whatever it takes - I want to see SAGA open and doing its good work of sheltering, providing supplies to those in need and caring kindly for the animals.

I don't think I've seen any SAGA bashing; however, there have been questions posed, facts disputed, differing opinions, etc. This is not hurting the island. What is hurting the island and the whole country is corruption, on nearly every level. Nuff said on that.
