From HumaneWatch~Tennessee~Ask the Attorney General to Investigate HSUS

Will Tennessee Investigate HSUS?!?

It’s been a rough year for the deceptively named Humane Society of the United States, which despite its name runs zero pet shelters and gives only 1 percent of its budget to local pet shelters. HSUS settled a federal racketeering and bribery lawsuit for up to $15.75 million, saw its charity rating revoked by Charity Navigator (the nation’s largest charity evaluator), and then was subpoenaed by Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt.

Now a Tennessee state legislator wants her state’s attorney general to investigate HSUS. State Rep. Sheila Butt recently called on Tennessee Attorney General Robert Cooper Jr. to join the inquiry and issue a consumer alert against HSUS. She cites the well documented fact that the public mistakenly believes HSUS is an umbrella group for local pet shelters and that HSUS has an anti-agriculture agenda.

HSUS didn’t have much of substance to say in reply, offering the canned response that Rep. Butt is taking information from us and “treats it like gospel.” Well, perhaps it should be gospel—it is unimpeachable. We’ve even polled HSUS’s own donors, 84 percent of whom think “HSUS misleads people into thinking that it supports local humane societies and pet shelters.”

In fact, HSUS probably knows our information is rock-solid. That’s why HSUS spends so much time lobbing personal attacks against us to distract the public or authorities from our information. But it won’t work. Contributions to HSUS from the public were down $20 million in 2013, according to HSUS’s annual report. People are wising up to the scam.

If you live in Tennessee, ask your representative and senator to join Rep. Butt in calling on the attorney general to investigate HSUS.

  1. Every state needs their Attorney General to investigate HSUS. The average John Q. Public has NO idea, just like you say, of what the HSUS does with it’s money especially that almost all goes to salaries and retirement funds and lobbying efforts to go against many of it’s donors…..IF the donors would only listen…….and READ…..and pay ATTENTION! Ugh! Makes me sick!

  2. Every state needs their Attorney General to investigate humanewatch as they are just a front group for the meat industry.

    • GOOD!!! I also support Consumer Freedom-so frankly, you aren’t telling me or anyone else things we don’t already know-Glad there is someone working to support our freedoms as Americans. If you don’t like it then go away-Your not welcome on this blog and not supportive of ‘the American Way’ so what are you doing here?!? We have the right to support who we want and be free of being controlled by groups like HSUS, PETA and other Animal Right’s Extremist Terrorists!!!
