I didn’t know that the HSUS wasn’t associated with “The Humane Society” down the street from your house. And only gives 1% of it’s revenues to shelters! And there’s compelling evidence, including the words that come DIRECTLY out of the mouths of the leadership that prove that HSUS is not as much animal WELFARE as it is animal RIGHTS and folks who like hunting, fishing and meat should be highly alarmed. This is a well funded organization without the actual expense of taking care of legit animals-in-need.
“It takes tens of millions of dollars to run campaigns against so many domestic targets, and HSUS consistently misleads Americans with its fundraising efforts by hinting that it’s a “humane society” in the more conventional sense of the term. Buried deep within HSUS’s website is a disclaimer noting that the group “is not affiliated with, nor is it a parent organization for, local humane societies, animal shelters, or animal care and control agencies. These are independent organizations … HSUS does not operate or have direct control over any animal shelter.”
“HSUS is big, rich, and powerful. While most local animal shelters are under-funded and unsung, HSUS has accumulated $195 million in assets and built a recognizable brand by capitalizing on the confusion its very name provokes. This misdirection results in an irony of which most animal lovers are unaware: HSUS raises enough money to finance animal shelters in every single state, with money to spare, yet it doesn’t operate a single one anywhere.”
