Center for Consumer Freedom Launches National Ad Campaign Targeting Activist Group HSUSMon, 23 Jan 2017 11:16:19 CST
Today, HumaneWatch.org, a project of the nonprofit Center for Consumer Freedom, announced a national commercial targeting the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). The ad, titled "Would You?," airs on the Fox News Channel and asks viewers whether they would give to a "humane society" that runs zero pet shelters or that paid millions of their donors contributions to settle a racketeering lawsuit.
The Humane Society of the United States is not affiliated with local humane societies that care for homeless pets. In fact, HSUS does not run a single pet shelter. In 2014, HSUS settled a racketeering lawsuit for nearly $11 million after it was caught paying a witness who lied in federal court. HSUS was also subject of a "consumer alert" and civil investigative demands issued by Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt that year.
"The Humane Society of the United States raises over $100 million a year. Surveys show much of that money is given based on the confusion that it's a legitimate, mainstream pet group," said Will Coggin, managing director of the Center for Consumer Freedom. "Animal lovers should send their donations to local shelters, not to a group that's gone to the dogs."
