The email contains a link to a video of Faye -- one of the 500 dogs rescued last summer as a part of the 8 state dog fighting ring bust.
The request, as usual, asks readers to make a donation to HSUS and their Animal Survivor's Fund -- that they're hoping to raise $1 million to help dogs just like Faye.
Here's the rub. They're not caring for the vast majority (or any?) of the dogs that were rescued from the dog fighting ring bust from this summer. The people actually CARING for the dogs -- at least the majority of them - are the folks at the Humane Society of Missouri (who is not affiliated with HSUS). And look, Faye is the cover girl on the Humane Society of Missouri's website.
It appears as if HSUS is trying to use the publicity from the Time Magazine article which refereed to HSMO as "the Humane Society" to raise money for dogs that aren't even in their care. This would not be the first time HSUS has pulled shananigans in such a regard. Just two years ago, HSUS asked for money to care for the dogs rescued from Mike Vick's Bad Newz Kennels -- when they as an organization were lobbying TO HAVE ALL THE DOGS KILLED.
Please everyone - if you want to help dogs like Faye, donate money to the Humane Society of Missouri -- or one of the many rescue organizations from around the country that are taking in these rescued dogs.
And shame on you, again, HSUS.
