Its pension plan gets five times more money than do the pet shelters. They are in it for the long haul. They plan to be in this business long enough to retire with benefits. They call us factory farms, but they are factory fundraisers.

We need to tell truth about HSUS loudly, relentlessly and often enough that the man on the street will know that they are not affiliated with local animal shelters.""
