Animal rights organizations, and other charities, like The Humane Society of the United States have been given a ‘Donor Advisory’ warning to their charity statuses.
Charity Navigator (a significant evaluator of charities) was unable to issue the group any sort of star rating (from 1 to 4) and chose to warn donors to allow them to consider the value of their donations to HSUS.
Other groups were also given similar warnings who include: Born Free USA/Animal Protection Institute, Fund for Animals, Animal Welfare Institute.
Muskoka Outdoors Opinion: It is no secret that the groups listed above are organizations that are against legal hunting opportunities and entities.
Looking at the HSUS website, it is obvious they can impact pets and animals in abusive scenarios, living in appalling situations and trapped in captivity. If they would stick that type of mandate and leave ethical anglers, hunters and circus operators out of their crosshairs – their money (and efforts) would be better spent.
