I am shocked and outraged that anyone would list the HSUS as #1 on ANY list of great nonprofits, or even VALID nonprofits. I won't post links. Instead, I invite anyone who reads this review to simply type the words "the truth about HSUS" into Google, Bing, or any other search engine. Pick a link, and do it wisely-- choose the animal rescue organizations that post about it rather than those you think might be suspect. You'll find your dollars are used for everything BUT animal rescue. The HSUS doesn't operate a single shelter, not one. They charge shelters for their materials, and advocate euthanasia over adoption. Check their statistics. They go hand in hand with PETA, another organization that is anything but advocating FOR animals and would rather see them killed than involved with humans in any way. Search for euthanasia statistics and HSUS and see that they kill most-- not some-- but MOST of the animals turned over to them. If you've got the guts and temerity, you'll end up with images of animals kills en masse at the orders of HSUS. HSUS has tried to clean up its worsening image lately by "doing good," but those efforts don't erase the true face behind this terrible organization. Consider the info on this page: http://gracieland.org/DaneRescue/available/index.html and do your own research before you throw your money into the money-sucking abyss that is the Humane Society of the United States.
