The HSUS: Not Helping Your Local Animal Shelter Since 1954

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is not who you think they are. They have managed to fool millions of people into thinking they help animals in shelters. The Humane Society of the United States is an animal extremist group based in Washington D.C. They DO NOT own, manage or oversee any animal shelters. 

This information is not new to those who actually work in shelters. The Herald Citizen reported about this in their recent article: Not The Same Humane Society. The director of the Humane Society of Putnam County, Linda Clemons, wanted to be clear that, “The Humane Society of Putnam County is in no way affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States…We receive no funding from that national group. The only thing we have in common is our name, and that is because back in the 70’s and 80’s when this organization was forming, that is what everyone was calling their animal welfare groups.” She went on to say, “I just want to make sure when people give, it is going toward what people intend it to go to.” 

This is not an isolated incident, and it seems that many shelters want to get the word out that the Humane Society of the United States is not affiliated with their organizations. Here is more information from our friends at HumaneWatch.
