COMMUTERS in New York City are being exposed to a barrage of glaring posters denouncing The Humane Society of United States (HSUS).
The posters, painted on the largest wall-scape within the sight of Penn Station and Times Square, criticised the HSUS for only giving 1% of its budget to local pet shelters.
The billboard campaign, backed by Humane Watch, brings its message to more than one million people each week. Posters with a similar message are also being handed out in some New York neighbourhoods and at dog parks in Washington DC.
The funding accusations have been made against the HSUS, claiming it only spends roughly 1% of its money on animal shelters.
After almost 80% of HSUS donors admit that their prime cause is to donate “to help HSUS care for homeless dogs and cats in animal shelters” they will be devastated to learn that according to tax records less than 1% of their money gets spent accordingly.
Will Coggin, the Director of Research at the Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF) said: “People who care about pets should give to their local animal shelter, not HSUS. Otherwise, their gifts may end up ‘lost’ in HSUS’s offshore bank accounts rather than helping needy dogs and cats.”
