Last month a request was made to the San Antonio Humane Society for specific financial information concerning several highly questionable areas in financial matters. However, SAHS aka Humane Society of San Antonio refused to send the specific information. According to a letter received today from Executive Director Nancy May, their interpretation of Texas law does not include the information requested.

However, documentation that does not show the specifics or information that was needed was provided. Moreover, SAHS supplied the 2009 Schedule B Schedule of Contributors. The contributors, their addresses and amounts donated are listed in the five-page Schedule B report.
The information requested was to determine how SAHS is using donor money. Much of the financial information on the 990 reports has information that clearly needs more scrutiny.
The intention of having the truth revealed is to protect the donors and the public. Information was not requested to reveal personal information of the donor’s themselves.
The donor’s privacy should be protected, and money donated needs to be used for the purposes stated by the management of the organization. The donors do not need to be scrutinized, but those using their funds need to be held accountable.
The IRS and State Attorney General along with others will be contacted with the results of the refusal to provide financial information, and what was received in its place.
Additionally, all donors will be contacted and provided with information, with the exception of the final donor on the list that contributed a non-cash donation of “various stocks” listing the business address for her holding company.
Although information requested was not provided, the information received concerning donor information may be researched further. It is hoped that the animals that have no voice and those trying to help them will not be compromised for the personal gain of others.
