None. People need to take it upon themselves to get the material they need to read about this organization. ALL the information is OUT THERE. TAX RETURNS, FINANCIAL STATEMENTS. Documents are not difficult to obtain. HSUS is very transparent about all activities in all the affiliates.

I'm a volunteer on the HSUS National Disaster Animal Response Team. I signed up because of Katrina. I've been called to help with hoarding situations and male chicken fighting. I've known Eric Sakach for ten years. He is in charge of the male chicken (I can't type that word because the obscenity filter thinks it's obscene) fighting raids. He and his organization have always done a great job. While I don't always agree 100% with what HSUS does, they still help a lot of animals.

Ask them to promote veganism more. If one truly loves animals, one would not want to eat or use them.

I've been donating monthly and I have yet to find a reason to regret it. They focus on lobbying for better laws for animal protection and more enforcement of those laws, and they are quite powerful and successful, inciting the wrath of powerful opponents, opponents who are trying to protect their right to treat animals as they will in order to most profit from them (such as using battery cages for egg-laying hens and puppy mills and killing local wild animals). HSUS actually try really hard to work with people who practice animal cruelty in their business to help them turn a profit while ALSO treating animals humanely, yet they of course focus first and foremost on animals and ending their suffering as soon as possible. Helping animals in shelters is important for the now (and I think is important, so I also donate to and volunteer at a local one), while helping HSUS is important for the now AND the future. BTW, I love their magazine, All Animals, which is just one example of their professionalism and transparency.

I would love to volunteer during a puppy mill raid or such, but they seem to only want people who know what they're doing, lol, which I guess I don't really want them to change...

Great charity led by Mr. Pacelle. I have to wonder at the negative comments here about no kill shelters contributions, etc. and the efforts to discredit this organization. What is really going on?

Statistics show that the HSUS only gives 1% of the publics donations to local pet shelters. They do some good, but donating directly to a shelter is more worth your time and money. Large groups like the HSUS do help, though smaller shelters and rescue groups are more efficient and thankful (knowing from personal experience). Donate to local groups instead!

Of all the organizations to protect animals, I see HSUS as the one with the most impact. They have a lot of support and they have a very practical approach. They're really getting it done, using moderate avenues. This is the one I choose to support with my time and money.

We have the power to build a new consensus, which rejects killing as a method for achieving results. And we can look forward to a time when the wholesale slaughter of animals in shelters is viewed as a cruel aberration of the past. We have a choice. We can fully, completely, and without reservation embrace No Kill as our future. Or we can continue to legitimize the two-pronged strategy of failure: adopt a few and kill the rest. It is a choice which history has thrown upon us. We are the generation that questioned the killing. We are the generation that has discovered how to stop it. Will we be the generation that does?

"Sometimes it falls upon a generation to be great. We can be that great generation."

The HSUS is simply the largest and most effective animal welfare organization in the US. The HSUS knows how to effectively get legislation passed that helps all animals. Their focus is just not companion animals, though their leadership in getting anti puppy mill legislation on ballots, disaster relief and their spay/neuter campaign helps animals and shelters. The HSUS leads campaigns to stop abuse in many areas. Seal hunts, fur farms, canned hunts, factory farms and anti-horse slaughter are just a few of the areas in which the HSUS is raising awareness and fighthing for the animals.

I am a volunteer. HSUS is the largest, most effective, animal welfare organization in the world. Through their legislative efforts, shelter assistance programs, veterinary services and their many campaigns, HSUS has positively touched the lives of animals all over the world.

The Humane Society is the preeminent animal welfare organization in the world.

It is the primary target of the most wealthy anti-animal welfare organizations and ag groups. That in itself should tell you how well they do what they do.

I am a proud member and advocate for HSUS. I
am very thankful to have them fighting for the animals. They do so many good things for all animals, and I look forward to helping them in the future.

I am grateful for organizations such as the Humane Society. They are constantly addressing issues of interest to me. I am glad to say that this year I chose to donate to HSUS and I feel my money is well spent given they address a multitude of issues and very well at that. I highly recommend them and look forward to continuing my support for them next year and beyond.

First, people need to be aware that the HSUS is a LOBBYIST GROUP... They are strictly for Animal RIGHTS (Big difference than Animal Welfare). They donate less than 1% of their donations to the actual Humane Societies and other Shelters which is unacceptable considering their tear jerker commercials of dogs needing help. Also, it is very well documented that they do NOT support "Pit Bulls"... Any dog fighting raids they are a part of, they very vocally and to the Judge state clearly they want ALL the dogs destroyed including the new born puppies!! HSUS have proven to be no friend of the Pit Bulls by calling for their destruction! They called for ALL of Mike Vick's dogs to be killed! Fortunately for those Dogs, other Organizations stepped up to save the dogs! HSUS wants an end to all pet ownership. DONATE TO YOUR LOCAL HUMANE SOCIETIES and Rescues and other Local Organizations! They are NOT affiliated with the HSUS!!
