Voting requires a Facebook account, and directs you to install an app that asks for access to your "friends" list. Here's what the ASPCA says about that in the FAQ section: What information will be provided to the shelter? Only your email address will be shared if you opt to share it with the shelter you voted for. Your name and other information will not be provided to the shelter. The opt-in/opt-out option for sharing your email is right under the vote button on the shelter profile page of the voting application. If you do not wish to have your email shared with the shelter you voted for, please uncheck the box to opt out. What personal information will ASPCA have access to and how will it be used? The ASPCA will not have access to or use any personal information from the Facebook voting application. If you so choose, we will provide your email address to the shelter that you voted for. The ASPCA does not collect, store or utilize the friends lists.
