HSUS Feeling Heat in N.Y. Times

Chuck Zimmerman

The Center For Consumer Freedom is dialing up the heat on the Humane Society of the United States. This is their full page ad that’s appearing in today’s New York Times. It highlight’s “the failure of the Humane Society of the United States to devote a significant amount of money to supporting America’s underfunded pet shelters. The ad explains that HSUS shares only 1 dollar out of every 200 dollars it collects with local, hands-on pet shelters.”

You can find out a lot more by going to the organization’s just-launched website, HumaneWatch.org. You can download a pdf of the ad with this link.

The ad reads:

Shouldn’t the “Humane Society” do better?

The Humane Society of the United States is NOT your local animal shelter. In fact, it gives less than one-half of one percent of its $100 million budget to hands-on pet shelters.

Meanwhile, this wealthy animal rights group socked away over $2.5 million of Americans’ donations in its own pension plans.

Surprised? So were we. The dog-watchers need a watchdog. Join the discussion at HumaneWatch.org.
