On March 12, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt issued a consumer alert, warning that the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is under investigation for deceiving Oklahomans into donating to them under false pretenses.
This comes in the wake of the tragic tornado strikes in Moore, OK, and surrounding areas, that devastated Central Oklahoma in May 2013. In an advertising campaign following those events, HSUS implied that donations made to them would go directly to local animal shelters, helping with displaced animals in the region and damage caused by the storm.
A review done by Pruitt’s office, however, finds that little-to-no funds donated to HSUS actually went to support local Oklahoma animal shelters.
