Their ads make you think they are helping shelters. Our local shelters get nothing from them, and I'll bet yours doesn't, either. If they want your money for lobbying and animal rights activities, they should say so in their ads. They are deceptive and dishonest.

I lump the HSUS in with the ASPCA and PETA. They all play on the publics sympathy to make money and further their causes. Animal welfare has little if anything to do with their goals. If it did, they would support animal shelters with a little more than words. They claim credit that is not theirs to claim and the steal $$ from those who deserve it.

Donate to your local shelters (unless they are are associated with one of the aforementioned) and become a member of an organization that supports pet owners rights!

Self-serving, tax-evading, and misleading. This nonprofit looks like a umbrella of humane societies or shelters, but it is not. While some of the things it has done, and continues to do, will benefit animals, the agenda of the organization is essentially to separate animals and man...as in extremist vegan and anti-companion pets. The ads I have seen on TV say that my donations go to help the (neglected/abused animals in the pound) but they don't state how. Upon researching, they do it by regulating man's ability to keep animals and how they keep them, not by supporting the animals in the pound, or their vet bills, or to start up/continue supporting shelters.

It's political support of banning my pets-some of the snake species I love and keep- and thanks to that, I am now limited in the areas I can live.

Return it to the original purpose-a non lobbying, non political group of people who actively help care for shelters and the animals in them, as well as helping educate and fund ways to reduce pet overpopulation and abuse.

The H$U$ lures people through their sad commercials and I fell for it as well, but I didn't donate and good thing I didn't because instead of them being "non-profit" they are an "all-profit" organization and people should become aware of this.

The HSUS goes out of its way to promote dog fighting convicts. The rate of dog fighting rings has tripled in Philadelphia, PA since the HSUS has backed Micheal Vick. If you want the dogs in your neighborhood to die in a fight be sure to back this organization.

Contrary to their TV commercials they don't run any shelters. They give about 1% that is ONE Percent of the revenue donated to them to shelters that do help animals. On more than one occasion they have come to the defense of a shelter to KILL adoptable animals rather than turn them over to no kill 501c3 rescue groups. HSUS is a revenue generating machine for Wayne Pacelle and his ultimate agenda of eliminating companion animals, service animals, farm animals and human'e use of animals in any way.

I saw their lack of actual help in the Katria crisis even though their TV ads soliciting money said they were in the trenches helping.

Replace the entire board and officers with people who really care about the welfare of all animals.

The Humane Society of the United States has no interest in humane treatment of animals. Instead, they lobby to cripple ALL animal agriculture and drive up the costs of food. They are a Vegan run Animal Rights organization intent on ending animal agriculture and pet ownership completely. They have assets in excess of $200 million dollars and yet spend less than 1% of that money on animal care (even though their misleading ads imply your donation will help pets in shelters). They collected over $30 for the pets of Katrina, dumped the pets in local shelters and left with ALL the money.

They showed up to help with a disreputable breeder in our area...for two days. We saw not a penny of assistance, and because the case wasn't high profile enough they simply left.

Shut them down completely.

Have them take an active role in providing funds directly to local animal shelters and humane societies instead of using their money to lobby washington to have their political agenda pushed.

The HSUS is a poor excuse for a "non-profit" organization. When an organization brings in millions of dollars a year from fundraising and pays there CEO over $100,000 a year, yet donates very little to local shelters, I do not consider them a non-profit. At this point they are just like most other businesses who are out to make money. Many HSUS supporters and/or employees fail to gather any facts before advocating for policies and laws to be passed. If the HSUS can afford to post billboards, pay a social media manager, and hire big time celebrities to advocate for causes that make no sense, then the HSUS should be able to support local shelters and truly help animals in need, rather than fill their own pockets!!!

Policies have been passed because of this organizations' deep pockets. These policies make it difficult for any person involved in agriculture to make a living. Without agriculture.....nobody will survive!!

Have them actually use their money to help animals rather than throw it around to simply demise the agricultural industry.

I am not a farmer, I am not a dog breeder or puppy mill owner, I am an average citizen with family pets. I eat meat (both wild and store bought) and I enjoy milk from cows and other products from our agriculture. Any organization that tries to tell me not to own pets, or what to eat or what to wear is not an organization I can support. I support my local shelters and help to find homes for abandoned animals, I buy fishing and outdoor licenses to help manage our wildlife.

Recent legislation that has been both successfully and unsuccessfully passed limiting human interaction with the animals we depend on for companionship as well as other animals for food.

I just wish HSUS would be completely transparent about their agenda and goals for the organization.
