Skippy and his $52,000 PETA connection

By the looks of his 990 tax forms, Skip Trimble didn't win an award from PETA - he bought it.

From 2001 to 2010, Skip's nonprofit, The Foundation for All Creatures, gave a total of $52,700 to PETA.

The Foundation also gave $45,000 to the HSUS in 2001. The HSUS pension fund managers must have come in their pants when that check arrived.

The Foundation's donations contain more than a little irony: Kittico, once a major TNR advocate, received a total of $10,000. Considering that PETA believes in killing ferals - NOT TNR - one of these contributions wasn't well thought-out.

Read all about it here, at A and N Research.  I'm currently looking for the 2011 tax return for the Foundation, but it's probably a bit early to post.
