Please Don't Give to the US Humane Society if You Care About Pets

Please Don't Give to the US Humane Society if You Care About Pets

please review their financial statements and tax returns before you make ridiculous comments about them spending 79 to 80% of their revenue on direct programs helping animals. first of all that would leave them only 20% to run their corrupt business on and load up their fat pension plans with. second, it's a totally false statement that you're making.”

“Perhaps it is you who should review the financial statements. I am intimately familiar with them and the proof is there, in black and white, that they spent 80% on animals in 2011. See page 16 of the annual report for the breakdown.

I wish the folks here would deal with facts. HSUS has exceptionally modest salaries and pension plans. Try doing a comparative analysis with other humane organizations. Here's a summary to make it easy for you: http://humanewatch.info/blog/2010/08/06/overcompensating/

“It makes me glad that many more people are seeing the HSUS for what they really are. I would suggest anyone (supporters of and non-supporters of) the HSUS do what I did when i started to question this organization and go take a look at their financial statement and their tax returns. It's there in black and white, you can read it here http://www.humanesociety.org/about/overview/annual_reports_financial_statements.html
and to canamfan, they no way no how allot 80% of their revenue to assist animals in any way shape or form. My main issue with the hsus is that through their advertising they lead one to believe that when you send that donation it's going to help animals in shelters....and it's not. Give local don't donate to the HSUS.”

“Sorry dude, perhaps you should actually look at the link you provided.

P. 16 http://www.humanesociety.org/assets/pdfs/publications/2011_annual_report/2011_annual_report_pub.pdf:

80% of revenues going to animal programs: 18% cruelty & prevention; 24% direct care & service; 43% advocacy & public policy and 15% research & education.

My guess is you're opposed to HSUS specifically because of the important work they do to address the root causes of animal cruelty. I don't understand why the animal abuse apologists here won't just admit that, rather than attempting to cloak it in objections to how HSUS - a charity they don't support - allocates its money for animals.”

“speaking of understanding; i will never understand why anyone finds it necessary to correct spelling and/or grammar of others on a freakin message board. or is that bored?? oh wait it's board and you're boring”

“same...I may have done it myself but only when it had rendered a message unreadable. There was nothing entirely hideous about the spelling and grammar here, still quite readable...Now the content? Save the part of how they would react if someone accused them of molesting their child..that first long...very long... sentence is nonsense.”

“unfortunately because she wasn't convicted, there's no way to stop her from making money for murdering her daughter (i think she killed her) with the exception of course of doing what you suggest which is not to buy any book or see any movie that she stands to make $ from.”

“i can appreciate what you're saying about letting a child of 8 walk alone, but, realize that although this happened in nyc, it wasn't in manhattan. I think perhaps you're envisioning an 8 year old walking through times square alone. it happened in the neighborhood of boro park brooklyn, which is a safe safe area of nyc largely comprised of Hassidic Jews. picture tree lined streets not major traffic and congestion. and a community that truly looks out for their residents. My heart breaks for Leiby's family and community.”

“Maybe if back in i believe August of 2008 when Roy Kromp (sp) meter reader called the police to investigate what he thought was Caylee in the wooded area, had the police actually got in that area and recovered the body when it had been there for a short time, there would have been more evidence ie. DNA (which by the way decomposes over time as it is organic) which is why there was no DNA on the duct tape. I say the blame lies with the police for not doing their job. that being said, i also believe there was more than enough evidence to convict this narcissistic sociopath of at the least manslaughter. This witch is probably loving all of the attention she's getting now. I'm not happy with the jury's decision, but i wasn't on the jury therefore I really can't understand how they came to their decision ( i watched the entire trial), i do know that from this point forward when i get a notice for jury duty, rather than trying to get out of it... I will serve.”

“Things happen and the causes are at times imperceptible.

The question is why should what other people say and do disturb your peace of mind? Do you live in the world where people do not die by various means that are beyond your control?”
