Letter: Humane Society not anti-farmers

I was looking at the TV commercials and thought this maybe a good idea to give some money to help animals. But then...I looked into the financials and history of this organization and what I found merits a warning for all who may consider any gifts to the HSUS.

The HSUS has been investigated in several states for fraud concerning their advertisements.

It has been repoprted they do not follow the rules for a 501C organization.

According to their financial report they spend pennies on what they receive in donations for the animals, If my figures are correct they spend 0.01 % of all money for the benefit of any animal, roughly a 100,000 per 100 million in revenue or less.

This is an activist organization and not what they're selling on TV in their false advertisements. If you want to give money, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE give to your local shelters where the staff makes pennies because they love the animals.

Do not support the HSUS you are just getting ripped off.
