Re: HSUS Article

Old news for those of us that realized what HSUS has really been all about for some time, but well worth repeating here.

That figure of 71% ("the sort of umbrella group that 71 percent of Americans mistakenly think it is today."), is probably much higher today?

After years of ignoring animal shelters and helping to fund them, HSUS started running TV and print ads that help foster the impression that's what they're all about now.

Their TV ads about stray pets, still appear on the Military Channel and several other cable/satellite channels that I view. The purpose is twofold: Appeal to the hearts of viewers and appeal to those viewers to donate.

Those who have followed the saga of HSUS' eventual usurption by Pacelle and others, know full well that their primary focus has been the ending of recreational hunting and trapping...not the welfare of stray cats and dogs.

This disclaimer is on the web site of the Humane Society of the Harrisburg Area and has been for as long as I can recall:

Is the Humane Society funded by or related to other organizations, like the Humane Society of the United States?

No. The Humane Society of Harrisburg Area is an independent organization, not related to HSUS, the ASPCA, or any other Humane Societies. We receive no funds from national organizations or the government.

Re: HSUS Article

I was watching ABC last night Denny, and they had an ad on there that was unreal! They should NOT be allowed to portray themselves as anything other than what they are- an anti-hunting organization.

Re: HSUS Article

Thank God that this Humane Watch organization has formed and is shining a spotlight on their dirty dealings. They won't eb able to hide in the shadows anymore. Now we need to get hunters out in force and educate the public to their lies, and to the need for regulated hunting as a management tool.
