Holding the Humane Society Accountable


The non-profit watchdog group Humanewatch.org has gone on the offensive with two full page advertisements running in the LA Times, educating the public that the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) gives less than one percent of its budget to local animal shelters. Last year, Humanewatch issued a challenge to Humane Society of the United States CEO Wayne Pacelle: “Share just half of HSUS’s income with hands-on pet shelters, and we’ll shut this website down for good.”  A year later … it looks like Humanewatch still has a job.
