Center for Consumer Freedom Applauds Oklahoma AG's Investigation of HSUS FundraisingWed, 12 Mar 2014 15:33:43 CDT
Will Coggin, senior research analyst at the Center for Consumer Freedom, issued the following statement today about Attorney General Scott Pruittís consumer alert regarding national animal welfare organizations such as the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) fundraising in Oklahoma:
"Attorney General Pruitt should be commended for taking a vital step to protect Oklahomaís animal lovers. The Humane Society of the United States deceives donors with tear-jerking and manipulative images of dogs and cats, and then funnels the money to push a radical animal liberation agenda aimed at attacking farmers. According to its tax return, HSUS, which isnít affiliated with local pet shelters, made only one grant to support pet sheltering in Oklahoma in 2012. HSUS should produce a full accounting for the money it raised following the Oklahoma tornados and Hurricane Sandy, and it should be held accountable for its deceptive general fundraising."
This alert comes only one day after the Center for Consumer Freedom launched a week-long ad buy in Oklahoma warning citizens about the deceptive fundraising practices of the Humane Society of the United States.
