Default Human charities v Wildlife Animal charities

I'm much more inclined to contribute to animal and wildlife/nature charities than those which support humans. You too? No? Discuss.

Neither, I don't believe in giving money to charity unless it's a local organisation giving back to small meaningful set ups

I will not donate a single penny to any charity where its CEO is earning taking the same salary as a counterpart in a FTSE 100 company - that eliminates about 90% of the charities which are household names. There are a very small number of local charities who are doing their best for homelessness - bizarrely where I live there is wealth aplenty, yet a foodbank within half a mile - they get a monthly delivery from me as a means of giving something back.

RSPCA is a despicable charity IMO - do some research into the number of health animals they destroy year on year.

I do wonder about charities that look at research into diseases, like cancer. A lot of money must go into these charities, but what do we see in return? To me, it just seems like we see companies that manufacture drugs charging so much for them that the NHS can't afford them. So, through charity, people have paid for the research, and the drug manufacturers are just cashing in on it. I could of course be mistaken - it's purely an impression I have.

Animals on the other hand didn't ask us to destroy their habitat etc.

I agree about the household named charities with directors taking ridiculous salaries.
Even animal charities have problems, there is a big animal sanctuary in Co. Down, Northern Ireland, which also now employees an expensive CEO.

See my post in the NHS thread, at the moment I'm very grateful to any cancer research charities. My dad has a very rare form of cancer that probably wouldn't have been researched if it wasn't for charitable donations as its not something the drug companies would have seen as profitable enough to warrant research funding. The result is a new drug which will prolong my dads life and suppress the symptoms of his cancer.

I do however have a problem with many of the religious based charities such as Christian Aid or CAFOD who bundle their aid with religious propaganda and the whole charity is simply a body for spreading their religious doctrine.
