HSUS – World's Biggest Scam?

It’s not all that ridiculous for a big corporate scam to be taking place. But if the HSUS were the Red Cross – and the animals had an actual voice – you’d see that there would be some quick changes happening.

From just cursory investigation, I’ve found that:

  1. HSUS spends less than .5 percent of what their online and television ads rake in on actually supporting shelters.
  2. The bulk of it goes to lobbyists, political campaign funds, and fat executive bonuses with benefits.
  3. There is an apparent organized mob connection.
  4. They are under a RICO lawsuit for conspiring with other radical activist groups to do harm.

And it’s not surprising that farmers in Missouri are now concerned that their sponsorship of a puppy-mill bill (which is argued to be unnecessary, since existing laws already cover what they are proposing) is just a foot in the door to start regulating the Animal Husbandry industry. At least once source reports that they are radical activist vegans who are trying to get everyone to quit eating meat:

In Animal Rights and Human Obligations, the published proceedings of this conference, HSUS stated unequivocally that “there is no rational basis for maintaining a moral distinction between the treatment of humans and other animals.” It’s no surprise, then, that a 2003 HSUS fundraising mailer boasted that the group has been working toward “putting an end to killing animals for nearly half a century.”

And that is exactly why I’m taking a break from my work at a whitepaper on how to raise environmentally-responsible, heart-healthy grassfed beef cattle – just to tell you that there are some nuts loose among the squirrels.

So today I bring you a video and some links to share. Hope these bring you some food for thought.

  3. Wow. Didn’t realize HSUS was so huge. What a ripoff. I always get my dogs from the shelter, but I didn’t realize they were prostituting animals in their ads before. Thanks for this data. NicolaNeil@aol.com

    Wayne Pacelli has turned the HSUS into a bunch of annoying hippy wants to suit his own weird views they no longer care about animals just their rediculous plitcal agendas

  5. Thank you for taking the time to speak out about the HSUS.
    Emerson, HSUS is NOT affiliated with you local animal shelter. Despite the pitiful puppies and kittens in their ads, your $19 per month won’t go to taking care of any abused pet. They are deceitful curs!
    The goal of HSUS is elimination of fishing, farming, hunting and pet ownership. Most people would not send them any donation if they realized their true agenda, so the HSUS intentionally misleads the public with their name recognition and their ads asking you to “help the animals.” They capitalize on the name “Humane Society” and use it to raise millions of dollars, which they then use to push legislation that interferes with animal ownership. JUST SAY NO TO HSUS.

    I enjoyed reading such a great article. Your points on the HSUS being a major scam surprised me. Glad you did this research to bring it all to view. And I appreciate your work on scams, plus that book. I’m using your checklist today to start scaling my own scammers. Thanks again!
