HOUSE RESOLUTION

WHEREAS, According to  the  tax documents of  the Humane

Society of the United States, as well as other independent

analyses, the national organization renowned for animal rights

donated less than one percent of their $132 million budget to

help care for actual animals in 2016; and

WHEREAS, This  information  differs from  the impression

people are given by their late-night commercials, which depict

animals in distress and in need of help; the end result is that

people who  want  to  help  innocent animals are  baited   into

donating their money, which in turn is used to help pay for the

six-to-seven figure salaries of executives, and the frivolous

law suits of local pet stores, zoos, and hardworking farmers;

and

WHEREAS, These  financial  revelations about the Humane

Society of the United States, along with the allegations of

sexual assault against their former CEO, bring into question

whether the organization is truly living up to its mission,

advocating for the rights of animals; and

WHEREAS, Members of this chamber should be encouraging the

residents of Illinois to research other local humane societies

that are   completely   unaffiliated with the National

organization; residents  of  Illinois will find that these

independent humane societies do not receive many donations and

rely primarily on dedicated volunteers to care for the animals;

and

WHEREAS, Unlike the Humane Society of the United States,

local independent  humane  societies prioritize  assisting

animals in  our  own  communities, especially those that are

abused and neglected, and ending animal abuse; these local

organizations are where we, as residents of Illinois, should

donate our time and money; therefore, be it

RESOLVED, BY  THE  HOUSE  OF REPRESENTATIVES OF  THE ONE

HUNDREDTH GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS, that we

admonish the Humane Society of the United States for their

disrespectful work culture and lack of commitment to supporting

animals; furthermore, we ask anyone who supports animal rights

causes to  support  their  local independent humane   society

instead.
