More and More Americans Know: HSUS Isn't a Pet Shelter Group
May 18, 2010

Unless you've been living under a rock, you're probably aware of our 3-month-old, revitalized HumaneWatch campaign that's exposing the deceptive "Humane Society" of the United States (HSUS) as the PETA-esque animal rights group that it is. Judging from the reaction of HSUS (and its head honcho "Humane Wayne" Pacelle) to our new efforts to keep the group honest, we're having a serious, nationwide impact that threatens HSUS's attempts to continue to masquerade as a pet-shelter umbrella group. Sunlight is the best disinfectant, after all.

Yesterday, we upped the ante with full-page ads in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal to make sure our message reached millions of Americans. And today we're targeting Hollywood celebrities who lend their star power to this faux humane society with a full-page ad in Tinseltown's must-read magazine, Variety.

You may not know it, but more than 100 celebrities, from Carrie Underwood to Harrison Ford, have aligned themselves in serious ways with HSUS. These stars (and their agents) may not know that HSUS is simply PETA in a suit-and-tie, so we're happy to set the record straight:

Hi Kim - It's true that the Humane Society of the U.S. doesn't oversee local shelters; we don't claim any affiliation with them. Our organization's budget is directed toward broader animal protection issues - dogfighting, puppy mills, factory farming, lab animal welfare, etc. We regularly communicate with our members about current programs and campaigns - there's nothing to hide. By all means, support your local shelters; they do important work, and the HSUS's role is different from theirs. But please know that "HumaneWatch", created by the Center for Consumer Freedom, has been widely discredited by the mainstream media as a corporate front group for alcohol, tobacco, and agribusiness interests.

Interesting comment from HSUS... According to SourceWatch (that HSUS/Hillary referenced): "The Center for Media and Democracy (CMD)...is a progressive (i.e., left-wing) organization led by Lisa Graves." I guess that means the liberal Mainstream Media's rubber stamp on them makes CMD's own propaganda OK, right? Go figure....
