Interpretation of these values:
The SSPCA could not live within the budget the government gives them and NEEDS donations to continue to pay wages and vehicles.

It is very unclear how much money if any goes to benefit the animals directly. We see a large amount of money that benefits employees as well as a large cost involved in keeping those employees “in comfort.”

Ironically although the SSPCA acts like the police in "obtaining" warrants and "conducting investigations", they spend a pitiful amount of money on training.

No information can be found as to how many animals are actually taken from owners and how many successfully make it to "forever" homes or how many are killed or sold at auctions to end up in worse circumstance.
