Do not donate any money to the Humane Society of the United States. HSUS has NO affiliation with your local animal shelters. They are scamming money out of people under the guise of 'animal welfare', they actually advocate 'animal rights'. The money HSUS raises is spent on advertising and to harass local farmers and ranchers with new laws and regulations. PeTA took over the Humane Society of the United States a long time ago...
