Individual Compensation

From ANIMAL PEOPLE, November 2001:
Individual Compensation
(Chief executives &/or 10 top-paid staff & consultants)

The Pay column below combines salaries,
benefit plan contributions (if any), and expense
accounts for the few individuals who are not
required to itemize expenses. Individual
independent contractors such as attorneys,
accountants, and consultants are listed as well
as directors and regular staff.


The IRS does not require disclosure of
non-board compensation under $50,000. British
charities must disclose the approximate amount of
their highest salaries, but not who receives
them.
Salary norms identified as GdStr come
from <www.GuideStar.org>, whose survey of 75,000
U.S. charities found huge gender gaps in pay
scale. Salary norms identified as SAWA come from
the Society of Animal Welfare Administrators
annual survey of Salary and Personnel Practices.
Since SAWA does not share the findings, we
obtain leaked and therefore possibly incomplete
data. Norms identified as AVMA are from
Veterinary Market Statistics, produced by the
American Veterinary Medical Association. Norms
identified as NAVTA are from the North American
Veterinary Technicians Association.


Volunteers are listed only if working in
a senior leadership capacity full-time or nearly
full-time.

COMPENSATION NOTES

A – Attorney Christopher A. Smith, 60,
with no zoo background, succeeded William Conway
as president of the Wildlife Conser-vation
Society in September 1999, after Conway reached
mandatory retirement at age 70. Smith left,
however, in March 2000. His compensation and
that of John McKew and Dennis Baker includes
severance. Conway, whose compensation includes
retirement benefits, still consults for WCS.
James M. Large Jr. was named acting president.
B – Humane Society of the U.S. president
Paul Irwin took $570,325 in salary, expenses,
and retirement benefits in 1998, the last year
before the IRS became able to fine nonprofit
groups for paying excessive compensation. In
Nov-ember 2001, Irwin won board approval to stay
as president through 2004. The IRS is
reportedly investigating an allegation by former
HSUS legal/executive secretary Nancy Dayton that
HSUS general counsel and vice president Roger A.
Kindler and senior counsel Murdaugh Stuart Madden
have long used HSUS staff and facilities for the
benefit of their private law practice, including
advertising the HSUS address, telephone, and
fax number as those of their law firm. Dayton
complained to the IRS five months after she told
Irwin that HSUS had filed false reports to the
IRS in 1996, 1997, 1998, and 1999. Dayton
was fired, she said, two weeks later. Neither
Kindler nor Madden have responded to requests
for comment.
C – Includes compensation from nine IFAW

affiliates. Also in 2000, IFAW paid $251,335 to
the law firm Rackemann, Sawyer & Brewster, in
which IFAW board member and legal counsel Michael
O’Connell is a partner. Instead of disclosing
the top five salaries paid to non-board members
on IRS Form 990, Schedule A, part I, IFAW
wrote for the second straight year that, “During
the current year, more than 86% of each key
employee’s compensation was reimbursed by the
other [IFAW affiliate] organizations [for which
work was done].” But the purpose of Schedule A,
part I is not to explain who signs the checks.
Rather, the section is meant to enable donors to
decide if the pay is in keeping with the
charitable mission. Standard practice is to
disclose compensation exceeding $50,000 from all
affiliates of a charity combined, footnoting to
explain divisions of duties and pay sources.
D – John C. Sawhill, 63, president of
The Nature Conserv-ancy since 1990, died on
5/18/2000.
E – Peggy and Kenneth Cunniff are wife
and husband. NAVS Form 990 filings in 1989-1994
identified Kenneth Cunniff as an independent
contractor. ANIMAL PEOPLE pointed out in June
1996 that his pay from NAVS often exceeds
$100,000/year plus use of a vehicle, while he
runs his own law firm. Since then, NAVS lists
him as “Kenneth Cunniff, Ltd.”
F – Ken White in October 2001 left the
Arizona Humane Society to head the Peninsula
Humane Society, in San Mateo, Calif., at
$188,000 a year (including car allowance), plus
housing.
G – The Royal SPCA CEO is Peter Davies.
In November 2001, RSPCA vice presidents William
Jordan, founder of Care For The Wild., Angela
Cope, and Dame Janet Fookes were removed from
the RSPCA ruling council in favor of celebrities
Geri Halliwell, Elton John, and Cliff Richard.
Wrote Valerie Elliot, countryside editor for the
London Times, “Some members believe the move was
an attempt by RSPCA director-general Peter Davies
to silence Jordan,” an outspoken critic of the
RSPCA policies on animal research and circuses.
H – William & Patricia Burnham are husband and wife.
I – Greenpeace Inc. and the Greenpeace
=46und share staff and board. William Bryant and
Michael Harold departed in August 2000.
J – Andrew Dickson heads WSPA worldwide.
K – Joseph Peligrino and Carolyn
Sweetapple have left the North Shore Animal
League.
L – Timothy O’Brien succeeded Robert F.X.
Hart as Ameri-can Humane Association CEO in
November 1999. Karen Goschen succeeded Gini
Barrett as head of the AHA Hollywood office in
March 2001. Adele Douglass now heads Farm Animal
Services Inc., formed by the AHA to run its Free
=46armed Certificate Program. Ann Sparks
succeeded Douglass as AHA Wash-ington D.C. office
director.
M – Mark Goldstein left the SF/SPCA in
January 2001 to become president of the San Diego
Humane Society. Nathan Wino-grad left the
SF/SPCA in November 2000; he is now executive
director of the Tompkins County Humane Society in
Ithaca, New York. Nadine Grenier has also left
the SF/SPCA.
N – The CEO of Dogs Home Battersea is Duncan Green.
O – The CEO of the National Canine Defence League is Clarissa Baldwin.
P – FSAP development director Scott
Anderson was formerly development director for
PETA; FSAP, headed by Ingrid Newkirk of PETA
and Neal Barnard, M.D., of PCRM, functions as
a fundraising arm of PETA and PCRM. (See Budgets
& Assets note #25.)
Q – Mark and Delia Owens are husband and wife.
R – Priscilla Feral and Robert Orabona are wife/husband.
S – Chris Jordan is son of William
Jordan, founder of Care For The Wild. G.T.
Craggs is husband of trustee V. Craggs.
T – FACT compensation plus compensation
from Nest Eggs Inc., a for-profit FACT
subsidiary.
U – Ronald Cohn and Francine Patterson
are identified by other media as “partners.”
V – Javier Burgos leases an office to
SUPRESS d.b.a The Nature of Wellness, at $22,800
per year. SUPRESS vice president Hoorik
Davoudian took no salary in 2000. Her firm, New
Health Inc., was paid $68,000 for “Programs/
campaigns design implementation and management.”
W – Esther Mechler founded Spay/USA in
1990. It became a Pet Savers Foundation program
in 1993. Lynda Foro began Doing Things For
Animals in 1993. Hired by Pet Savers in 1999,
=46oro continues DTFA, which is still independent,
as part of her duties.
X – Will Travers, a Born Free
=46oundation staff member since it began, is son
of founder Virginia McKenna. His promotion to
CEO was probed in 2000 by the British Charities
Commission, which found no wrongdoing, but
suggested bylaw changes, which were made, to
avoid any conflicsts of interest.
Y – Wildlife Waystation also paid rent of
$54,000 to founder Martine Colette, equal to her
mortgage payments on the 90-acre sanctuary site,
bought with her personal credit. The sanctuary
is her sole heir.
Z – Alley Cat Allies co-founder Louise Holton resigned in October 2000.
AA – Bonnie & Brad Miller are wife and husband.
BB – Lisa Distefano, Valerie Shand, and
Victoria Hart-man each served as Sea Shepherd
executive director for a part of 2000.
CC – Pat Derby and Ed Stewart are
partners. PAWS provides their housing and
vehicles.
DD – Kim Bartlett and Merritt Clifton are wife/husband.
EE – Lorri & Gene Baus-ton are wife and
husband. They also receive housing and
transportation from Farm Sanctuary.
FF – Alex Hershaft rents an office to FARM in lieu of salary.
GG – Eric Mindel left LCA in midyear.
HH – Donna Hart and Stephen Best left the
International Wildlife Coalition in midyear.
II – Mary Lynn Roberts has divorced Joe
Parker, the chief public voice of Tiger Haven
until August 2000, and is now married to Ken
Roberts. This seems to have made little
difference in the financial affairs of Tiger
Haven. (See note 52, on page 16.) A longtime
bingo operator whose games were repeatedly halted
by law enforcement, Joe Parker was accused of
skimming $50,000 in 1986-1997 from bingo games
held to benefit a nursery school and
kindergarten. He turned prosecution witness
against other defendants to receive a reduced
sentence. Parker opened a bingo hall to benefit
Tiger Haven in May 1994. It closed in 1996.
Tiger Haven says Parker no longer has any
involvement with the sanctuary.
JJ – WBR founders Gene and Diana Chontos have separated.
KK – PIGS “currently leases a farm from
its directors and paid rent of $13,500 for the
year,” explains IRS Form 990. Founders Jim
Brewer and Dale Riffle used their personal credit
to buy the farm, where they live as caretakers,
for the exclusive use of PIGS. Brewer in 2000
also gave PIGS $5,000 in cash.
LL – Turpentine Creek cofounder Tanya
Alexenia Syrenia Smith, a.k.a. Tanya Gonzelez
Smith in 1998 settled charges filed as felonious
theft of public benefits by pleading guilty to
illegal use of food stamps. Smith allegedly
declared in seeking food stamps and Medicaid that
she and her son had no income except the son’s
Social Security payments, and had no other
resources. Turpentine Creek had paid Smith
$5,000 per month rent since April 1994; paid her
$20,000 plus 5% interest, 1992-1994; and paid
her $34,122 from January 1995 to the date the
case was filed. Smith also leased two vehicles
to the foundation until July 1, 1997. The
current Turpentine Creek IRS Form 990 omits
statements which on earlier filings declared that
Smith leased land to the foundation “at the same
cost as her mortgage payment,” receiving both
housing plus equity in the 450-acre site,
relatively little of which is used for the care
of sanctuary animals. Turpentine Creek is still
paying $5,000 per month ($60,000/year) in rent to
someone.
