On Google, HSUS and Fur

If you haven't seen the latest discussion about the perils of using AdSense, check out HSUS' Michael Markarian's Blog on Huffington Post is Advertising Fur , and its comments, which include a defense by HSUS. The comments also include a suggestion that HuffPo (and presumably HSUS) develop an ethics policy that governs what may show up on their blogs if Google isn't willing to filter out fur ads. The animals in Hebei Province need HSUS to be smarter than this.

Critter News

The HSUS is the first animal welfare organization to receive such authority and distinction. Undergraduate degrees and graduate certificates in animal studies, animal policy and advocacy, and humane leadership will begin in fall of 2009. Very cool! I've been looking for something like this for a long time. From the Humane Society's press release.

On What the Animal Ag Alliance Thinks of Us

Animal Person

Through all of the damage control and message-neutralizing I have to do due to PeTA campaigns or someone lumping me with PeTA--or the HSUS, for that matter--I always remember that the real enemy of my cause is someone who wants to convince the world that there is nothing wrong with using animals when we have no need to and who profits from the "production" and slaughter of sentient nonhumans. The HSUS isn't even anti-hunting !

But the HSUS is by no means an animal-rights organization; it is an animal welfare organization. What's the difference between the HSUS and the VHS and CHS?

Is Shelter Appreciation Week a Sham?

Critter News

Nathan Winograd has an interesting piece in the Examiner about the recent HSUS Animal Shelter Appreciation Week. HSUS’ latest public relations gimmick is part of a larger attempt by the very animal control officers responsible for this neglect and abuse to reform their image from one of “dog catcher” to “humane law enforcement.” It's not that he's unappreciative of people that work with animals, but rather the state of many of the shelters that are being appreciated.

Who is Jennifer Fearing?

Critter News

Pretty impressive bio (please note that the bio is from her time at HSUS). I got curious today and googled "Jennifer Fearing," the woman who led the Yes on Proposition 2 campaign. It turns out that she was the former Humane Society Chief Economist. She used to head United Animal Nations too. I couldn't find any information on her current activities. Probably taking a much needed break.

Patriots and Steelers Eye "Sick Vick" for Signing

Critter News

Pretty savvy on HSUS' part? Well, I know two teams I may not be rooting for next season. (Of Of course, I've disliked the Patriots ever since their coach was caught with filming other teams. And the Steelers? Not since they were handed the Super Bowl over the Seahawks. Worst officiating EVER!) Plus, I personally have no room for forgiveness for Sick Vick. Others may, but I don't. What do you all think about his upcoming work for the Humane Society? Or are they trying to get publicity?

Animal Rights is Pernicious Nonsense?

Animal Person

However, both his perceptions and misconceptions are based on: 1) observing the work of PeTA and HSUS; and 2) the assumption that those two organizations are in the same category--"animal rights." In " 'Animal Rights:' Pernicious Nonsense for Both Law & Public Policy ," Massachusetts attorney and "sportsman" Richard Latimer is on the mark with some concepts, and way off with others.
