HSUS-The true behind their spending!

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!

  1. Please educate yourself about WHO is running Humane Watch! Rick Berman loses money when HSUS is successful so of course he would want to shut them down.


  2. I am well aware of that! That doesn't change the fact that HSUS has deceived all of us. Their budget was once public and they are not being honest with us. Call your local shelter and ask them how much money they receive from HSUS. My local shelter said they have never received money from HSUS.

  3. Went to your link, Robin & Bryan, and this paragraph seems sketchy, mostly because of the third word in the first sentence:

    According to Wkipedia, “acknowledged corporate donors to the CCF include Coca-Cola, Wendy’s, Tyson Foods, Monsanto, and Pilgrim’s Pride.” But, that’s not all. According to PRWatch.org, agribusiness is also a large contributor to CCF and HumaneWatch.org because HSUS “has had an ongoing campaign to achieve better living conditions for livestock, which, if it came to fruition, could cost agribusiness millions.” A pretty powerful motivator for one to want HSUS weakened or removed from the picture completely.

    So everyone knows, I once thought that agribusinesses would lose millions. So I asked around, and what I know is the agribusinesses have been planning behind the scenes for new production methods that will follow the HSUS's intended "standards."
