HumaneWatch~Help End HSUS Tax Exemption-Sign the petition
Help Us Take a Bite out of HSUS
Despite its carefully marketed image as a group concerned almost solely with finding homes for needy cats and dogs, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) only gives 1% of the money it raises to pet shelters, according to its tax return, and it doesn’t run a single pet shelter.
Where does the money go? HSUS’s leadership has a PETA-like agenda to, among other things, end animal agriculture—something it doesn’t advertise. HSUS has also socked tens of millions of dollars offshore in Caribbean bank accounts—money it could be using to save needy animals, like it promises.
Like millions of other nonprofit groups in the United States (e.g., universities, houses of worship, social service organizations), HSUS pays no federal taxes on its income. But few of these other tax-exempt groups share HSUS disdain for the public and its supporters.
HSUS’s tax-exempt status was granted by the U.S. government on the basis of the group’s willingness to conduct itself in a lawful fashion. We believe that HSUS has failed to live up to its end of the bargain, as its conduct, in our opinion, violates state consumer protection/charitable solicitation laws, and that the Internal Revenue Service should cancel HSUS’s tax-exempt status.
If you agree, please add your name and contact information below. Your “signature” — along with those of thousands of other Americans – will be used to encourage U.S. government officials to take action. Members of Congress have called for HSUS to be investigated by the IRS, so this is the perfect time to make your opinion known.
Note: We will not sell or otherwise transfer your personal information to any business, organization, or government agency.

RE: Humane Society of the United States
I, the undersigned, urge the United States Treasury Department to cancel the tax-exempt status currently extended to Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and its affiliated organizations under Section 501(c) of the U.S. Treasury Code.
By repeatedly and continuously raising money using deceptive and misleading practices, HSUS has demonstrated that it is incapable of conducting itself in a manner expected of nonprofit groups receiving federal tax subsidies. HSUS should not enjoy tax-exempt status similar to that of universities, houses of worship, and legitimate social service and educational organizations.
