- HSUS is a national factory-fundraising nonprofit organization preying on the public's emotional attachment to pets; yet, gives less than 1% of their millions to local animal shelters.
- $31 million of the public's contributions to HSUS goes for salaries and over $20 million is spent on litigation, lobbying, campaigns and legislation, even though HSUS is registered as a charitable organization--This information is from the Center for Consumer Freedom's analysis of the latest IRS paperwork filed by HSUS for 2008.
- HSUS collected over $86 million in contributions in 2008 and in that same year spent $24 million on fundraising. In other words, 28 cents of every dollar contributed is used to raise more money.
- HSUS is a radical group trying to abolish animal agriculture, sport hunting, and the ownership of pets. They are wanting to take away our rights not to mention the thousands of jobs created by agriculture, hunting, and pet breeding.
I know I want to maintain my right to own my beautiful and beloved pure breed English Shepherd, Mina, that I bought from a breeder.
I want to keep my right to own and operate any business that I see fit on my own property because this is America. Better and braver men and women have died for the freedom we enjoy and I'm not about to let HSUS take those rights away from me all because they feel that "The life of an ant and that of my child should be granted equal consideration."
Not in my town, Bub!
