PostSubject: hurricane season DO NOT GIVE TO HSUS   Mon Sep 01, 2008 10:19 pm

With hurricane season upon us and Gustav just about on top of New
Orleans, it is critical to get the word out.

Three years ago, when Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast, the Humane
Society of the United States (HSUS) mounted a gigantic fundraising
campaign. They raised $32 million and have still not accounted for
most of that money.

Serious dog folks believe that most of the money collected by HSUS
with the claim that it would be used for disaster relief came right
back at us helping to promote laws that are bad for pets and bad for
people.

Even their on-site work isn't well thought of. Many, pet rescuers who
went to the Gulf Coast to help Katrina animals found themselves
hindered by HSUS. Record keeping was so slapdash that many pets that
were saved, couldn't be found by their owners. Many believe that the
pets in the area would have been better off if HSUS had stayed at
home.

In any case HSUS *already takes in millions* that they do not use in
helping animals. They do not run shelters (though a couple of
companies they own do have sanctuaries), and in fact they compete with
shelters for donation dollars.

The AKC has a disaster relief fund now, which is used to support
search and rescue dogs and all pets during a disaster. That's where
I've just sent our contribution. I am not always a fan of AKC, but
they ARE honest about the handling of their money, and when they offer
help, it is real HELP -- not a clumsy self-promotional effort.

https://www.akc.org/donations/index.cfm

In normal times, give to your local animal shelters. They will nearly
always use the money for actual animal care. Please investigate any
charity you send money to after a disaster, Wait a few days and find
an organization based in the area that needs help.

For further information on HSUS disaster relief:

002.html

http://www.outsidethebeltway.com/archives/humane_society_of_the_united_state
s_under_investigation/

Or just Google "HSUS misuse funds Katrina"

Please forward this to all your email groups and share with as many
people as you can reach...not just your dog friends, but anyone who
might care about pets enough to want to help by making a donation
during a disaster.

Let's not let a tragedy become an HSUS fundraiser AGAIN!

I have never trusted that org. Never gave to it at all. They have been like that for as long as I can remember. It's like giving you tax $ to the gov. you never see it again. I worked for the Broward rabies control Years ago. Thats where I learned HSUS were a bunch of liars about $. Mad

Well Hsus sure dropped the ball .And they have been known to drop the ball everytime. Gots to watch who you give donations to. $ is too hard to get just to give it to people that really don't care that much about animals,They want the$$$, to keep their butts in a job. Them bassssss terds. The people don't know Sleep they think everything is Cool
