No- the Humane Society is anti animal anti pet. Please read the following-
Do you know the goal of The Humane Society of the United States?
"We have no ethical obligation to preserve the different breeds of
livestock produced through selective breeding. One generation and
out. We have no problems with the extinction of domestic animals.
They are creations of selective breeding."
Wayne Pacelle, CEO of HSUS, former board member of PETA - Animal
People News 1993
"We are going to use the ballot box and the democratic process to
stop all hunting in the United States ... We will take it species by
species until all hunting is stopped in California. Then we will take
it state by state. Wayne Pacelle, Senior VP Humane Society of the US
(HSUS), formerly of Friends of Animals and Fund for Animals - Full
Cry Magazine, October 1, 1990.
"My goal is the abolition of all animal agriculture." JP Goodwin,
employed at the Humane Society of the US, formerly at Coalition to
Abolish the Fur Trade, as quoted on AR-Views, an animal rights
Internet discussion group in 1996.
Things you may not know about the HSUS and how they use donations
taken in by the public.
1. The HSUS does not operate or have direct control over any
shelter. Buried deep within HSUS website is a disclaimer noting that
the group "is not affiliated with, nor is it a parent organization
for local humane societies, animal shelters, or animal care and
2. Since its inception, HSUS has worked hard to limit the choices of
American consumers, opposing dog breeding, conventional livestock and
poultry farming, rodeos, circuses, horse racing, marine aquariums,
hunting, fishing, fur trapping and medical research.
3. HSUS raises enough money to help finance animal shelters in every
single state with money to spare, yet it doesn't operate a single one
anywhere. Instead, HSUS spends millions on programs that seek to
economically cripple meat and dairy producers; eliminate the use of
animals in biomedical research labs; phase out pet breeding, zoos,
and circus animal acts; and demonize hunters as crazed lunatics. HSUS
spends $2 million each year on travel expenses alone, just keeping
its multi-national agenda going.
4. While most local animal shelters are under-funded and unsung, HSUS
has accumulated $113 million in assets and built a recognizable name
by capitalizing on the public notion its very name evokes.
5. The current president of HSUS, Wayne Pacelle, is a former officer
6. HSUS is currently under investigation by the Attorney General of
Louisiana in regards to the disposition of Katrina funds. HSUS has
been under investigation by the FBI for their links to domestic
terrorist organizations such as the Animal Liberation Front (ALF).
One of their current officers, John P. Goodwin is a former member of
ALF and a convicted felon for acts of terrorism related to animals.
7. HSUS consistently jumps on the bandwagon of any animal issue to
raise funds even if they are not directly involved. Most recently
they used the Michael Vick case as a major fund raiser, even though
HSUS had nothing to do with the investigation or care of the Vick
dogs. After raising funds from the public, HSUS advised the rescue
facilities housing the Vick dogs to euthanize all the animals.
Fortunately for the dogs, the shelters have been working with breed
rescues to rehabilitate and home the dogs, but with no help from
funds collected for the dogs by the HSUS.
The HSUS uses public donations to pay for lobbyists to help pass
bills that are detrimental to pet owners, farmers, fisherman,
hunters, trappers, and research centers. Their goal is total animal
liberation and a vegan society. No pets of any kind, no meat, no
fish, no eggs, cheese, milk, or any other type of animal products.
The HSUS is no different than PETA in it's goals, but only in the way
they sugar-coat the delivery of their agenda under the guise of
animal welfare. It is an organization of extreme activists who are
working diligently to take away your constitutional right to own pets
The HSUS uses your donations for bills being passed into law for
mandatory spay and neuter of pets to control animal population. Most
cities passing the law are requiring pets be neutered long before
reaching puberty, which is proven by research to be the cause of
many health problems due to lack of needed growth hormones. It is the
equivalent of sterilizing a child at the age of 3. When needed
growth hormones are removed before maturity, bones don't grow right,
growth plates don't close, osteo arthritis can set in, cancers can
become more frequent. Those are only a few of a long list of health
problems caused by prepubescent neutering and spaying.
HSUS uses your donations for bills to limit the number of pets anyone
can own. They are backi
