Humane Society of the United States / misleading advertising
Buyer beware. If you are considering donating to the Humane Society of the United States you may want to rethink your decision. Only 1 % of donations goes towards actually helping animals. They do not donate one dime to a single animal shelter in the United States and spent 43 million dollars in 2010 alone on fund raising. They have a pension fund built up of over 17 million dollars and have 29 employees that are paid over $1000, 000 per year. Check out the following sites to find proof that they are a scam. http://scienceblogs.com/grrlscientist/2010/03/01/the-humane-society-of-the-unit/ - http://www.humanewatch.org/real_simple/ - dime.http://www.consumerfreedom.com/2010/05/321-watchdog-group-calls-out-humane-society-of-the-united-states-with-times-square-billboard/ and the list is endless of groups exposing these crooks. If you want to donate to the humane society donate to local offices. Do not send these crooks another dime.
