2013-04 10/09/2015 --Donor Advisory

Prior to 9/1/2016, Charity Navigator issued Advisories under the name CN Watchlist and Donor Advisory. For more information on the CN Advisory system click here. This charity was issued a DA.

This donor advisory was published on Friday, October 9, 2015

The Humane Society of Southwest Missouri has historically reported fundraising expenses on their Form 990. However, its most recent Form 990 lists no fundraising expenses. Based on our experience, charities only rarely are able to raise substantial sums of money without incurring any associated fundraising costs. We have reached out to the Humane Society of Southwest Missouri for clarification, but have not received an adequate explanation. We are therefore unable to evaluate the Humane Society of Southwest Missouri and thus have issued this Donor Advisory.
