On May 15, 2013, the IRS automatically revoked the federal tax exemption status of A Wish for Animals for "failure to file a Form 990-series return or notice for three consecutive years." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information, please see the IRS register for tax-exempt organizations.

Charity Response

A Wish for Animals provided Charity Navigator with the following response to this Advisory:

"Our 501C3 status was temporarily revoked due to us being so busy rescuing animals, that we fell behind in our filings.  We are now caught up and in the process of working with the IRS to get our rescue's 501C3 re-instated.  If you would like to help the pups in the meantime, please reach out to us at questions@awishforanimals.org and our sister rescue can help you with that."

The concerns raised about organizational legitimacy and/or federal tax law compliance are serious both in nature and scope and have thus warranted this CN Advisory. We have published this advisory to provide donors with content that they may find useful when making their giving decisions. Charity Navigator is not responsible for the nature or content of the information presented through external sources and websites. For more information on how or when we decide to publish a CN Advisory, please review our methodology.
