Is the mask used by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) to cover its agenda slipping a bit lately?

Of course, HSUS is no stranger to controversies surrounding how they raise funds. So it should be no surprise that many people are raising questions about the latest pitch by HSUS to raise $1 million by the end of the year for its “2010 Animal Survivors Fund.” What is surprising is that many of those ringing the alarm bells do not usually share our opposition to HSUS.

The e-mail and web solicitation in question comes from HSUS Animal Fighting Campaign Manager, John Goodwin. In the plea, Goodwin refers to “Fay”, a rescued pit bull that had been abused in a large St. Louis area dog fighting ring. While nothing in the solicitation appears to be technically inaccurate, some are disputing HSUS’ level of involvement in this issue.
