“Humane confusion is widespread in America.” I’ll agree with that.
“Despite the words “humane society” in its name, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is not formally affiliated with any humane societies that operate at a city, county or regional level.” I’ll agree with that also.
“Most Americans aren’t aware of these facts.” I will certainly agree with that.
There is a new kid on the block,the Humane Society for Shelter Pets. And according to USAgNet.com, it seems that the Humane Society of the United States doesn’t like them. And the main reason is because HSSP is a group whose sole mission is to help shelter pets and share messages I agreed with above.
HSUS has been spending inordinate amounts of energy attacking the newly launched HSSP, according to watchdog group HumaneWatch.org. The reason behind HSUS’s concern is because the new HSSP group advises animal lovers interested in helping pets to donate to their local shelter instead of funding HSUS.
You’ve heard me talk about HSUS before – and I’m glad there is a pet shelter group fighting back alongside agriculture groups to bring HSUS into the light about what they stand for – and it’s not helping pet shelters. Check HSSP out and keep encouraging others to give directly to pet shelters – or now the HSSP.
