I just want to spread the word about a organization that, I must admit is cleaver. They mislead people by thinking they are a American institution, in fact they are one of America’s top anti hunting and fishing groups out there today. Let me tell you why I am writing this blog. I had a invite on my facebook page to join this cause.
The person that sent this to me is a outdoor type that love to spend time in the woods and water. They were fooled. They have a name everyone assoicates with that help out animals. They are well funded, organized and deceitful. Read on and see if this is what you want to be associated with. The Humane Society of the United States, commonly known as “HSUS”, is the largest anti-hunting and animal rights organization in the United States, with headquarters in Washington, DC You might be one of the millions of Americans who have received fundraising letters from the Humane Society of the United States. Seeing the furry faces of Fido and Fluffy, you might even have sent a donation, thinking you were supporting animal shelters and pet adoption. But rather than help animals in need, your money instead lined the pockets of radicals who labor for animal liberation.
A sprawling institute for animal rights masquerading as an animal-welfare charity. HSUS does not run a single animal shelter, and spends a miniscule portion of its millions giving to groups that do. This intentional deception has made it the richest animal-rights group on earth. The unsuspecting pet owner who receives frequent HSUS fundraising appeals may be shocked to learn about the group’s deep connections to many other radical animal-rights and environmental groups. Here are a few selections from our profile, highlighting more disturbing facts about HSUS: The current goals of this misnamed “Humane Society” have nothing to do with animal shelters.
The group took aim at the traditional morning meal of bacon and eggs with a tasteless “Breakfast of Cruelty” campaign. HSUS even wants to put an end to lifesaving biomedical research: as early as 1988 the group’s mailings demanded that the U.S. government “eliminate altogether the use of animals as research subjects.” HSUS has never budged from this extreme position. HSUS continually gets low scores from established charity watchdog groups. Charity Navigator recently gave the group only one star (out of four). It gave no stars to HSUS’s Earth Voice International, and one to Humane Society International and the Humane Society of the United States Wildlife Land Trust.
Worth magazine gave HSUS a “D” rating for spending as much as 53 percent of its expenses on fundraising. “Against All Hunting – In their Own Words” Here it is – HSUS wants to stop ALL sport hunting, in the words of their leader, and from their own website: “If we could shut down all sport hunting in a moment, we would.” – Wayne Pacelle, as quoted by the Associated Press in Impassioned Agitator, December 30, 1991. “Our goal is to get sport hunting in the same category as cock fighting and dog fighting.” – Wayne Pacelle, as quoted in the Bozeman Daily Chronicle, October 8, 1991. “Sport hunting—the killing of wild animals as recreation—is fundamentally at odds with the values of a humane, just and caring society.” – HSUS Website 2003. “All Hunting of Any Species” The HSUS wants to stop hunting for all species and for all methods, not just hunting bear with bait and dogs. Their own words are very clear: About Bow Hunting – They hate bow hunting, saying that bow hunters use “Brutally inhumane weapons such as the bow and arrow.” About Different Species (including ducks, game birds, rabbits, coyotes) – Which animal species will be next on the referendum list? Perhaps they will start with their own list of species that they believe do not need population control: “The vast majority of species that are hunted—waterfowl, upland birds, mourning doves, squirrels, raccoons, rabbits, crows, coyotes, etc.—provide minimal sustenance and do not require population control.” – HSUS Website 2003. More about waterfowl and game bird hunting – HSUS believes that all bird hunting must be stopped, that it is a wasteful, cruel sport: “Duck hunters often exceed their bag limits or kill protected species because most hunters cannot identify the species of duck that they shoot.” – HSUS Website 2003. “Waterfowl, pheasant and dove hunting are no more than shooting at living targets.” – HSUS Website 2003. In addition, HSUS partners with many other radical animal rights groups to share the financing for their anti-hunting campaigns. Their partners include the Fund for Animals, the International Fund for Animal Welfare, and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). As a charity, HSUS has often been criticized by watchdog groups for its wastefully high fundraising expenses, and for misrepresenting who and what they are. HSUS has also been criticized for the huge salaries of its very well paid campaign managers and organizers – the top managers receive over $200,000 in annual salary! Even Merritt Clifton, publisher of “Animal People”, a newsletter written by animal rightists for animal rightists, singled out HSUS for appearing to be something it is not. In December’s 11th annual report on fundraising, under the heading “How they fool the world”, he writes: “The most misleading appeals that Animal People sees on a regular basis are those which misrepresent the sender. Over time, such appeals can create an image for an organization which is sharply at odds with what it actually does.” “The Humane Society of the U.S., for instance, is not and never has been a collective voice for all, most, or any other humane societies.
Neither does it shelter animals, adopt out animals, neuter animals, or share funding with local humane societies. In fact, HSUS is an advocacy organization representing just itself.” Many of HSUS’ leaders have been radical anti-hunting activists all their life. A large portion of the current HSUS leaders came from extreme groups like People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), the Fund for Animals, Animal Liberation Front, and other organizations. Now you have the facts tell your family and friends about this snake in the grass organization, better yet have them come to this blog and have them read it for themselves.
Thanks for the rant.
I can’t even see! I am SOOO Freakin angry! I say there has got to be a way to put these AS h oles in jail. Let them live in the conditions that the dog’s and cat’s live in.
