Humane Society of the
United States (HSUS) Action Alert
An organization was established in 1954 to provide care for dogs and cats. This organization is known as The Humane Society of the United States. As with everything, it seems, change has been going on unbeknownst to us. They started out as an animal welfare group and have switched to an animal rights group.
The HSUS plays on our heart strings, asking for donations to help take care of animals, saying they are being treated cruelly. By whose standards? We realize there are animals that are not treated properly and corrections need to be made, but we don’t believe the HSUS should have the authority to decide which animals are or aren’t being treated properly.
Did you know that the HSUS doesn’t own animal shelters and that the monies they take in do NOT go to these shelters? Verify this for yourself with the shelters in your area. Ask them how much support they get from the HSUS. You will be surprised to learn the help they obtain comes from people and businesses in the community where they are located, and not HSUS.
Over the years, rural America has developed into cities and has gotten away from its roots in regards to animal husbandry or the care of animals. These changes have come at a price we didn’t realize.
We are in a crisis and it is urgent that the people of this country realize the changes that have been coming. We stand to lose our food supply and our constitutional rights to own our pets without the threat of government stepping in to set the standards for all of us to follow.
HSUS has been very busy at all government levels recruiting support for this agenda. They have managed to get laws in place that lead us all to believe that no one treats animals well. Their agenda, as a special interest group, is to do away with animal agriculture, pet ownership, and the freedom of choice to eat meat, eggs, cheese or drink milk.
We don’t want the government to mandate our choice of foods to eat and we don’t think you do either. Animal activists like the HSUS don’t want us to have rodeos, circuses, zoos, hunting, fishing or medical cures for diseases (using animals to develop these cures).
We must work together to inform and educate the general public, especially those living in urban areas, (it seems more so in the cities in regards to animal husbandry) or we are going to lose our constitutional rights of freedom of choice. We don’t believe the city folks that have not been around farms or that have pets understand the full implications of the HSUS agenda.
If we let the HSUS succeed, there will be farms lost (jobs), pet suppliers lost (jobs), and pet food manufactures lost (jobs) etc. All of the jobs lost will trickle down and affect the grocery stores, department stores, the tax base, utilities, etc. with more jobs lost. You get the idea. They don’t care! It’s all about their agenda, not the people that are affected by their agenda.
Wayne Pacelle, President of HSUS, has been quoted stating that he doesn’t care if another dog or cat is born and “We have no problem with the extinction of domestic animals.” John Paul Goodwin, an HSUS coordinator and previously of the Coalition to Abolish the Fur Trade, stated, “My goal is the abolition of all animal agriculture.” In HSUS eyes, there isn’t anyone who takes good enough care of their pets or farm animals. THEY want the policing rights to tell you how to do that and they are accomplishing that through lobbying our legislators, using the monies they take in for the “care of animals in shelters.”
We must band together and re-educate as to what they are all about. They have been making these gradual changes for years. We don’t have that long or we will lose.
One good website to check out is www.humanewatch.org. There are agriculture websites to go to that can provide good information. The Future Farmers of America, in your schools, can inform you about HSUS. They have infiltrated the schools in the cities with propaganda (using slick booklets and videos) that animals are not property. They are preying on the children in schools because they are at a young age and easily influenced. The HSUS thinks that animals should have the right to sue us.
It’s very important for us to share this information about the HSUS and their true agenda with everyone we know. We need to be ready to fight for OUR animals and OUR rights to own them and care for them. We need to become involved in exposing the HSUS by notifying our congressmen in Washington, and our legislators in Little Rock, many of whom are unaware of HSUS’s true agenda. It’s important for us to act NOW to stop the HSUS’s efforts against us and our animals.
Please join animal owners across the nation in informing our US Congressmen about the HSUS and demanding action be taken against the HSUS agenda. Time is of the essence with this session of Congress. Take the few minutes NOW that will help protect your Constitutional rights.
Here are three items that need your attention:
1. Following is a link to the White House petition asking the government to look into HSUS lobbying and hold them accountable under the 1995 Lobbying Disclosure Act.
2. There is also a Call to Action by Frank Losey to be copied and sent to your individual congressmen, asking them to hold HSUS accountable for their lobbying.
3. Here’s another petition directed to Mark W. Everson, Commissioner, Internal Revenue Service, urging the United States Treasury Department to cancel the tax-exempt status currently extended to the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and its affiliated organizations under Section 501Â© of the U. S. Treasury code.
