Love the Animals, a charity that solicited funds on the Internet, including via social network Facebook, has been sued for misusing funds.

A lawsuit against Love the Animals, operated by Anthony M. Marasia, alleges Marasia put all funds donated to the company into his personal bank account, failed to tell donors that their contributions weren't tax deductible, and didn't register as a charity, Hawaii Attorney General David M. Louie said in a statement.
