The Associated Press is reporting that HSUS - the Humane Society Of The United States - has just announced a $600,000 grant to build a hurricane pet shelter down Louisiana way.
Now, gee - ain't that a kick in the head? Or maybe it 's a slap in the face to all those generous souls that donated in response to the HSUS Katrina Beg-A-Thon?
Wayne - seriously, dude - your generousity speaks for itself.
After all, you're only two years late and oh, about $25,0oo,ooo short.......
Or was it $40,000,000?
And didn't Wayne say that HSUS spent LOTS of that money rescuing Katrina animals?
Anyhoo - I'm not sure that the great State of Louisiana agreed with Mr. Pacelle.
Wasn't it just last year that Charles Foti, the State Attorney of Louisiana, announced an investigation as to the fundraising practices of both the Red Cross and HSUS????
Just what WAS the outcome of that investigation???? Hmmm - waiting for a call back now from the LA AG's press office .........
And didn't Wayne Pacelle doth protest too much - he was a) unhappy about the AG's investgation and b) unhappy that the State of Louisiana kicked HSUS out of the state, thus cutting short the extended fundraising stay?
So - maybe this new shelter also meant to shelter HSUS , and exempt them from the long arm of Charles Foti in the next hurricane/fundraising
scam schemeBeg-A-Thonfraud effort.
Oh - and more more thought -HSUS says it plans to use prison labor to run the shelter. Gag me - while Wayne talks about animal exploitation - he seems to have no qualms about human exploitation.
AND - for all you BSL-hating, pitbull-loving dog owners out there - you DO know that HSUS supports BSL, right?
Anyway - a lousy $600K two years AFTER the fact, two years AFTER HSUS raised MILLIONS - well is just seems so.............
Cheap, or is greedy a better word.
After all - how much interest did they earn on all that dough? OK - all of you forensic accountants out there - get busy!
