It's the very sad commercial that shows sad looking animals - tells their name & how they've been neglected & abused. I get the tactic they're using- tugging at our hearts- but it's breaking my poor dau's heart! She cried the 1st time she saw it. Now we change the channel. I have a dog that I adopted from the Humane Society, so I get it. But to make small children (& grown ups too) cry- not fair! I love animals & wish I could rescue them all. But then we'd be featured on "Animal Horders"!

Yes, the commercials are emotion filled. They are supposed to make you feel bad enough to donate money to them. I used to until they sold my name to PETA. When I started getting donation requests in the mail from PETA I stopped with the ASPCA. Instead I will donate goods anonymously to local shelters. After all, they don't have the same resources that ASPCA has and they can't afford to produce a guilt laden commercial to play during prime time.
