The HSUS should rightly be deemed a Political Action Committee, not a non-profit. Their sole aim is influencing legislation at the local, state and national level. Less that 1% of their considerable cash goes to directed aid animals in need.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

In my role as delegate to an animal welfare organization, I daily experience the wrong-headed and deliberate actions of HSUS that are intended to limit the rights of pet owners. I also see that they are very dishonest in their fund raising.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would totally dissolve the organization, take their megabucks and use them to really help animals.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I have enjoyed nothing.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Fanatics.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Eliminate the right to own pets.

Ways to make it better...

I had never met them.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The fact that the leaders are insane fanatics and extremely dihonest.

One thing I'd also say is that...

very few people know the true agenda of HSUS--which is to dissolve the animal-human bond.

A great organization. Actually cares about the health and well-being of animals. Big argibu$ineSS has their pawns out against them, but it's really funny.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the entire United States. They've helped countless animals, and prevented many unnecessary deaths. They educate the public about spaying and neutering to protect the well-being of the animals

Review from Guidestar

HSUS attacks all farmers with reports such as The Darker Side of Dairy on Nightline earlier this year. They only show one side of farming, the minority who don't follow best practices while the majority of dairy farmers put the health and well-being of their animals above their own family. The dairy industry is struggling and HSUS is rejoicing because they aren't out to protect animals, but to put an end to farming as a whole.

The Humane Society of the United States is one of the most impactful and important organizations in the world. They spread a message of compassion and they work endlessly for those who do not hav a voice. They bring to light so many issues that people do not know even exists in regards to animal welfare. I admire HSUS immensely because they are fighting to change laws so that the lives of animals all over the US are changed forever.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Although I am a vegan, I make sure to take make my family to IHOP or other places that have switched a certain percentage of their eggs to cage free. All of this has been done because of the consisten efforts of the HSUS.

Awesome! Upbeat! Smart! Compassionate!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

It could put money into getting signatures so that anti-confinement laws for farm animals could be passed in every single state!

Sarah Barnett personally helped with the elimination of the gas Chamber in Licking County Ohio by sharing the history of the fight to rid the county of a cruel warden who had been in place for 20 plus years. During he time he was in charge all kinds of animal cruelty had taken place as well as felony charges and that was just the beginning. By taking the time to talk with me and provide some history Sarah helped me come up with ideas on who to contact in order to form a group. The group I facilitated started a facebook page ( http://www.facebook.com/pages/Get-Rid-of-the-Gas-Chamber-at-the-Licking-County-Animal-Shelter/288989943015?ref=tsand ) which now has almost 9000 members. The warden has resigned and Licking County shelter is open for adoptions and will no longer be gassing animals.

As I have come to realize that laws are our most effective tool for protecting animals, it has become obvious that the Humane Society of the United States is the leader when it comes to backing legislation.

I've known of the HSUS since I was a very young child, thanks to my parents who were (and still are) members. HSUS really began to have an impact on my life however when I went away to college. As an eager teen looking for a way to make a difference in my community I attended a conference in DC. TAFA (Taking Action For Animals) is 4-day marathon of animal advocacy workshops and networking that has become a landmark in my journey to becoming an effective animal advocate. Here, HSUS provided a mountain of resources and ideas that I was able to take back to Michigan. Within a month of the conference I launched my own student group at my university. In our first year we raised over $1,000 to help fund the End-Dog Fighting campaign, volunteered at local shelters, informed students and faculty on local and national issues facing animals, as well providing resources and informtion on eating humanely and sustainbly through a plant-based diet. Our biggest success, however, was our campaign against battery-caged systems for acquiring the University's supply of eggs. After collecting signatures, screening documentaries, and giving away egg-free baked goods to those on campus, our student group was able to persuade the University to stop carrying eggs from hens in battery-cage facilities. We are now proud students attending of the first 100% cage-free University in the state of Michigan. None of these successes could have been possible without the help of the HSUS. The staff at the HSUS put their tasks on hold whenever I needed help on an issue, needed specific literature, or was in need of a pep-talk. I will forever be a member of this amazing organization and will encourage others to embrace the encouragement and support HSUS offers to those destined to make a difference for animals.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in Michigan when the state government, with the encouragement of HSUS, passed legislation to improve the living conditions of farm animals.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the effectiveness - the successes of this organization are tangible and irrefutable.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extremely encouraging and positive - the issues are heavy, collosal, even disturbing, but the staff remains positive and optimisitic.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

continue their most daunting efforts of changing the status-quo of industrial agriculture and put an end to the most egregious treatments of farm animals.

The Humane Society of the United States is solidly the most effective animal protection group in the world. They are a HUGE force to be reckoned with since they have laudable expertise in the field of litigation, public awareness campaigns, and emergency rescue. Despite what people claim about HSUS not helping locally, they are wrong because HSUS provides innumerable resources to local and national shelters. I am a proud HSUS donor and forever will be!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the hundreds of laws it passed to protect animals, from Prop 2 in California, to combatting puppy mills in numerous other states. The list (honestly) goes on and on...
