HumaneWatch.org has released a new report, Deceptive Fundraising Practices of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), that outlines the various ways in which HSUS parts well-meaning people from their money.
HumaneWatch.org says even 80% of HSUS donors think that HSUS “misleads people into thinking that it supports local humane societies and pet shelters.”
The 16-page reports includes an examination of HSUS print, television and direct mail fundraising, and how donors are misled in how that money is used once given to the organization.
HumaneWatch.org believes that HSUS is so deceptive in its fundraising, that it has recently sent letters to 25 state attorneys general outlining how the HSUS fundraising tactics may be illegal according to some charitable organization laws, and asking them to investigate.
The fight against HSUS isn’t just about the fact that their money isn’t spent on animal shelters as many believe, but it’s also about their well-funded drive to enact laws that suppress animal agriculture for an ultimate goal of its demise.
We all need to care about the activities of the HSUS whether we’re talking about cats or cattle, poodles or pork.
