Those commercials sure do tug at the heartstrings, don't they? You've seen them, right? Those commercials with all the sad-faced puppies and the voice over calling for you to send money to the Humane Society of the United States to help rescue all those little homeless dogs and cats. Guess what: that's not the main agenda of HSUS. They are an animal rights extremist group. In fact, they are the same group that is lobbying to pass s373 and other bills to hurt and effectively kill the pet reptile trade.
I've known about this for some time now, but I never thought it would be investigated and make news. I never thought that local animal shelters would speak up. Take a look and decide for yourself if HSUS is really the best way to donate to help animal shelters.
If you love animals, consider donating to your local humane society directly rather than to HSUS!
