SACRAMENTO, CA (December 8, 2006) – United Animal Nations (UAN), a national organization with a 20-year track record of rescuing and sheltering animals during disasters, today announced that it received a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent evaluator of charities.
Charity Navigator’s four-star rating is its highest possible rating; it indicates that UAN successfully manages its finances and successfully accomplishes its programmatic goals.
