Kyashi's comment while extreme was not really that far off base.Maybe on whatever alternate universe you live on this ridiculous hyperbole is true, but certainly not this one.
The HSUS is not a friend to pet owners in any way, shape, or form.
The HSUS may have started as an animal welfare organization. But it underwent a transformation about the time PETA came into being. New personel, new agendas.
Shortly after the current director, Wayne Pacelles took over, they merged with the Fund for Animals and Doris Days organization.
The transformation is complete. The HSUS is nothing more than a lobbying and fundraising arm of the radical animal rights movement.
