This is so TRUE!!!

Humane Society of the US-Their Philosophy Explained

An Animal Welfare Advocate and an HSUS executive (an unlikely pair, I agree; but bear with me) were walking down the street when they came upon a homeless person and his dog. The Animal Welfare Advocate gave the homeless person his business card and told him to come to his business for a job so he could earn a living. Then he could afford food & shelter for himself and the dog. He then took twenty dollars out of his pocket and gave it to the homeless person and a coupon for dog food so they could get by till the homeless person could start that job.

The HSUS person was very impressed, and when they came to another homeless person with a dog, he decided to help out as only he could. He walked over to the homeless person and gave him directions to the local animal "shelter" and a coupon for euthanasia, because he knew the homeless person would be better off without the dog; and besides, dogs are better dead than in the company of humans. He then reached into the Animal Welfare Advocate's pocket and got out twenty dollars. He kept $19.50 for administrative fees and gave the homeless person 50 cents.

If the homeless man refused this kind offer, the HSUS executive would make sure that he was cited for failure to license, failure to sterilize, and failure to provide food and shelter for the dog. And then he would take it to the "shelter" himself.

Now you understand the difference between Animal Welfare Advocates & the Humane Society of the US

Don't get me started on the Humane Societies of and in the US...
I work for animal control and our local HS truelly makes our jobs SO much harder. They have no problem throwing us under the bus for "euthanizing animals" when it is time for them to get donations, but they always fail to mention that the animals they don't want they send to us to "deal with".
"No Kill Facillity" my right cheek...

I'm pretty sure the HSUS is a totally separate entity from locally operated 'humane societies'
Correct

Most from what I've gathered, and from how the Humane Society I work at works, they are their own entity that has to abide city regulations.
