Consumer group warns New York Times readers in HSUS ad


A full-page ad from the nonprofit Center for Consumer Freedom appears in the Feb. 23 New York Times, highlighting the failure of the Humane Society of the United States to devote a significant amount of money to supporting America's underfunded pet shelters. The ad explains that HSUS shares only one dollar out of every 200 dollars it collects with local, hands-on pet shelters. The ad encourages readers to find out more by visiting HumaneWatch.org, CCF's new watchdog website.

Americans have become familiar with HSUS fundraising ads asking for a $19-per-month commitment that amounts to an annual donation of more than $200. But according to HSUS's own tax records, donors making that pledge are sending barely $1 to an organization that shelters unwanted pets--the work most Americans think of when they hear the words "Humane Society."

The ad reads:

"Shouldn't the 'Humane Society' do better?

The Humane Society of the United States is NOT your local animal shelter. In fact, it gives less than one-half of one percent of its $100 million budget to hands-on pet shelters.

Meanwhile, this wealthy animal rights group socked away over $2.5 million of Americans' donations in its own pension plans.

Surprised? So were we. The dog-watchers need a watchdog. Join the discussion at HumaneWatch.org."
