The Humane Society of the United State claims to be the largest and most effective animal protection organization. Unfortunately, this is not true and you may be wasting your hard earned dollars if you donate to them!
The Humane Society of the United States gives only 1 percent of the money it raises to pet shelters. Surprised? You might be, if you’ve seen HSUS’s TV ads—you know, the ones full of needy dogs and dying cats. You, like most Americans, might think HSUS gives most of the money it raises to pet shelters. But HSUS gives hardly anything to shelters..less than 1%. You might think that HSUS at least runs one pet shelter. They currently don't run a single shelter!
Check out your state, Montana receives less than 1%! So where does the money go?
-48.1 million is used for fundraising expenses
-24 employees are paid over $100,000 a year
-The CEO has a salary of $300,000 a year
They receive million of dollars in contributes from the American public, but do you really want your money going to lobbyist or salaries? As farmers and ranchers a $100,000 salary would be a dream come true but we work for much less. In order for us to feed you and the world, we can't look at our income, we must love our job. Wouldn't it be easy to "love" your job, if you made $300,000 a year?
I am a huge fan and supporter of local humane societies, they take care of all the local stray animals. If you make a donation, please make it to your local shelter. Here is a link that will take you to a page with details about local shelter. Local Shelters
Cancel your donation to HSUS today! Stand up for what is right, any non profit that receives a D- year after year should no longer be allowed to take donations!
