There are several car donation programs across the U.S.
In an email I received today, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is asking for your car donation. Their One Car One Difference program they quote, “…you’ll help support our community-based programs to steer at-risk youth away from dogfighting.”
It’s funny how the wording of their fallacious campaigns can really catch ya. If you follow their link from the email to the website, it says, “Donate a vehicle you’re not using, and the One Car One Difference™ program will auction your donation vehicle for cash for The Humane Society of the United States. Proceeds will go to the End Dogfighting™ program to stop the violence that has victimized so many dogs, and to change people’s attitudes and behaviors to confront animal cruelty.”
So if they are auctioning it for cash, who’s to say it is actually going to go to their dogfighting program instead of for lobbying efforts against animal agriculture??
And did you catch the last part “…and to change people’s attitudes and behaviors to confront animal cruelty.” Yeah, that is a nice way of saying lobbying against what they view as animal cruelty.
If you really want to donate your vehicle – consider one of these organizations instead:
- America’s Car Donation Program
- Habitat for Humanity’s Cars for Home Program
- Kars 4 Kids
- Cars 4 Charities
Or use Charity Navigator to find the charity of your choice and see if they accept vehicle donations.
