HumaneWatch is asking New Yorkers to “read the fine print” with the unveiling of two new billboards in Times Square. The billboards call attention to the fundraising tactics of The Humane Society of the United States. HumaneWatch dot org is a project of the nonprofit Center for Consumer Freedom. Polls have shown a majority of Americans believe HSUS is a pet shelter umbrella group. A large percentage also believes HSUS gives most of its money to local pet shelters. HumaneWatch has been drawing attention to the fact that HSUS actually gives just one-percent of the money raised from the public to local pet shelters.
Center for Consumer Freedom Senior Research Analyst J. Justin Wilson says the billboards are educating Americans about HSUS to ensure their donations go to support the cause they intended. If they want their dollars to aid cats and dogs in their community – he says they should give directly to pet shelters instead of inadvertently bank rolling the aggressive animal rights agenda of HSUS.
