Humane Society of the United States Revealed for what they are.


The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) are NOT like the local chapters of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA). 

Your local SPCA deserves all the support you can give them.

HSUS and PETA are not folks that Vizsla owners would want as neighbors. 

My guess is many of us have neighbors who support HSUS and PETA  by sending checks for what they think are helping shelters. 

In their mind the below is ugly. 
In their mind the below is a crime.

I, for one, hope the light of day shines on their operation and the U.S. Congress ends their tax-exempt status.

Will the next generation get to enjoy the Vizsla?

A well meaning yet ignorant lot.

Agreed. Rod I like your blog and have followed for a few years but wish you would leave politics aside.

Sorry but sometimes I have to shine light into the dark. Their side (HSUS and PETA) have no problem bashing a way of life and insisting we conform. Just can't do it. Not in me to ignore or avoid.

I will always open with "soapbox warning" so those who wish not to look can pass.

I agree Rod - well done. We need to SHOUT this type of response in every blog, e-mail campaign and every time we see a facebook or google + post about HSUS. Unfortunately the message lists for Vizslas don't allow us to talk about this - even though it threatens the very existence of the dogs we love.

Sorry anonymous, but unfortunately we must address politics when it is used to attack our freedom to own and keep animals. Life is sadly not all sunshine and rainbows...
