Finally an umbrella group for local humane societies and for educating the public on the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). The Humane Society for Shelter Pets' motto is to help local shelters with overpopulation etc. They also educate the public on the FACT that HSUS is giving less than 1% of the donations recieved to local animal shelters, while using cats in dogs in 85% of their propaganda. Hmmm... I think there is some tricky marketing going on here.
Anyway back to HSSP. They are an organization that is educating people to donate locally if they want to help local shelters and humane societies. It makes sense in many areas of your life. The larger the organization- the more overhead, the less money spent on actually doing something. The smaller the organization, the more focused they are on fixing a local problem.
The real kicker on HSSP- that has makes me somewhat reserved is a Co-director Diana Culp. She WAS the director of education for HSUS. Yep, she has flipped over to a lighter side. Still against puppy mills- not exactly sure what that is but, hey it is the word of the day.
