Would you recommend Animal Defense League of Texas?

I watched the Animal Defense League expose on Fox News on Tuesday night. I was really concerned, so I watched it again on KABB's website. Oh my goodness. Some of the things that had just flew by me during newscast - "They don't put down animals with medical problems as a COMMON practice" What? Does that mean that occasionally animals that can be saved aren't? Mr Aaron sent a letter to Fox stating that the 80 animals that were put down only had the flu - something that's easily treatable? They killed cats just because they had Leukemia? That volunteer said that he (or she?) had to quit going because of ANIMAL ABUSE? I'm really scared for the animals. Fox did a great job in exposing these people, but I'm really hoping that a more thorough investigation can be done.
