Report Details HSUS Lack of Pet Shelter Contributions

Group promotes itself as 'humane society' but contributes almost nothing to local humane societies that help homeless pets.

The nonprofit Center for Consumer Freedom has released a new report that breaks down the share Kansas pet shelters have received in the last three years from the $288 million collected in donations to the Human Society of the United States.


The report says the Kansas shelters received $7,027.00 in 2006, 2007 and 2008 combined from the organization, which widely advertises for donations in commercials that feature homeless and abused dogs and cats.


According to data drawn directly from the HSUS's tax returns, the organization gave only $7 million of the more than $288 million collected to any hands pet shelters anywhere in the country.


The report, "Not Your Local Humane Society" is available at, the Center's watchdog website that reports on HSUS's activities.
