So now if I donate to the Humane Society I have to worry about my money being used for political pressure? I don't think so.

Then you haven't done your research.

HSUS is a lobbying org that does not opperate any animal shelters.

Those commercials were made to squeeze tears and dollars from suckers. Be one if you like, but the fact remains, HSUS is a lobbying org and has nothing to do with local humane Shelters.

No, I don't have the $$ to donate to anything or anyone lately. The only donations I've been able to keep up on are Children's International and clothing/small appliances/toys to the local salvation army. I USED to donate to the HSUS regularly. Now when those commercials come on I have to switch the channel - can't stand to see it, can't do anything about it.
