Hi Everyone!

I have great news! A local car dealership has a yearly contest for charitable organizations. This dealership gives away $5000 each to 4 orgs that get the most votes on facebook. This year there were 60 charities to choose from.

The 2 non-profits that feed my colony of ferals and pay for all the spaying and neutering when I trap were TWO OF THE FOUR charities that won $5000 each! OH MY GOSH, there will be AMPLE money for my cat colony this summer. It could not have come at a better time. I have physically seen 5 cats that I know by the condition of their coats that are not spayed or neutered. This means that if I have seen 5 then there are at least 15 I need to trap and all of them will be fed.

When I get thru trapping this summer we will have spayed and neutered and fed close to 70 cats at my wrecking yard. YEAH.

Very good news for your ferals, junkyarddog!

You guys won't believe what happened with this contest! The car dealership completely misrepresented the contest. They said which ever top charities were VOTED FOR ON FACEBOOK that the top 1,2,3, and 4 spots would win $5000 each. The 1st and 3rd charities with the most votes were the orgs that help my animals. The only criteria list on facebook to win were the most votes.

This did not happen neither of my orgs got the money. The dealership went in house picked which four their employees wanted and then submitted those 4 to corporate for approval. None of the four the panel of employees picked was even in the top ten!

Every one is outraged here! When contacted, the dealership owner said there was other criteria to be met but he would not say what that was.

Anyone have any ideas about what can be done. I'm waiting to hear from personal attorney about it and I've contacted the Attorney Generals Office of Consumer Affairs.
