The Weekly Watch #47: HSUS (Still) Doesn’t Give Much to Pet Shelters
If you were reading HumaneWatch last week, you learned …
- According to its 2009 tax return, just four-fifths of one percent (0.8%) of HSUS’s budget consisted of grants to humane societies and other hands-on pet shelters.
- At long last, internal documents reveal what it takes to be one of HSUS's 11 million "members and constituents" (Hint: Just get on the group's mailing.)
- HSUS was for animal abuse registries before it was against them.
- HSUS quickly and quietly retired Humane Society International's $11 million debt in 2009. If you give "$19 a month" to HSUS, those were your donations at work.
Stay tuned this week for more truth-telling, research-sharing, and analysis of America's richest animal rights group! (If you need your up-to-the-minute HumaneWatch fix, there's always Facebook.)
