Just as HSUS must severely warp the meaning of "animal protection" to maintain access to the benefits of its collaborative relationship with John Mackey and Whole Foods, so must FARM warp the meaning of "animal rights" to maintain access to the benefits

There is no happy meat for dinner. No matter how you market it, it still involves slaughter.

As many of you know Im a big advocate for all animals. Im a strict vegan and haven't eaten meat in over 15 years, but for those who do eat meat I would hope they do thier research and at least eat meat that is humane.
Thanks Nancy ..this is a topic worth discussion

I have always trusted the Humane Society, and a monthly donation is automatically received. I received a phone call from them this week, telling me my credit card was declined the past 3 months. THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE. I tried to explain over and over and over that it was a banking glitch and I would take care of it ASAP. She BULLIED me to take care of it now. I was unable as I had to speak with the bank AND WAS WORKING ON A very important C2 cause. I was as respectful as can be and she was as rude as can be. I actually apologized for getting a bit 'frustrayed' when the fact was I WAS ANGRY AS HELL. If I read the news correctly about the HSUS Heart is Broken. The "loopholes" and dishonesty regarding everything these days makes me ASHAMED OF MY SPECIES. Is there no humanity?
I became a veggie 44 1/2 years ago (fish and dairy only) ~ vegan over 2 decades. I don't judge people by their choice, but I know I have touched many people, by example of my eating habits. Many people only eat veggies while we dine. My father thought he was eating egg salad, while it was tofu and veginese (sp) The last 5 years of his life he didn't eat any meat whatsoever! Leading by example has much more power than trying to explain to someone the horrors of eating meat. Sorry for getting WAY off track.
Ellen~ the entire Planet has "lost it's way" IMO.

Noted Tks.. I have to agree, I'm totally ashamed of the Human Race, there is no RESPECT for living creature no matter what they are.. We take over wildlife's territory, We throw our pets aside when they're either to old or just don't want them anymore and just dump them on the street or throw from vehicles... The Human Race has NO RESPECT FOR NOTHING....

I do not give money to either HSUS or PETA. I will sign their petitions, but that's it. I think both of these groups have agendas that don't primarily benefit animals in the way I think they should. I did not know about FARM. I will now reconsider my support of that organization.

Thanks for this info.

THIS ARTICLE IS BULL SH*T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HumaneMyth is run by The Center For Consumer Freedom and Rick Berman. The CCF is a rich and powerful lobby group who makes their money from FACTORY FARMS, PUPPY MILLS, alcohol, tobacco, restaurants, etc. They discredit groups like PETA, HSUS-even MADD! Why? Because the CCF makes their money off of the pain, suffering, and deaths of animals!!
SourceWatch has excellent articles on The CCF and Rick Berman. (AKA Dr. Evil).
PLEASE do not fall for their lies!!!!!!!!

Repeat Vegan Laura - Anything connected with The Center For Consumer Freedom and Rick Berman is lies and misinformation. Rick Berman A.K.A. Dr. Evil was exposed on 60 minutes as running some of the most vile and lying sites for profit.

The article states: "Mr. Maxwell, whose HSUS salary is paid for by people who think their donations are helping animals, is in fact responsible for the death of thousands of sentient individuals each year, most of them pigs whom he claims on his web site are "raised like children." I wonder how donors feel about that!

What a lying, greedy, heartless, con artist! We've all seen videos of the life of a pig or the last hour of a pig's life. If that's how he treated his children, he'd be in prison or six feet under. GREED brings out the very worst in people.

Regardless of who runs that site I have lost faith in the HSUS, PETA, and ASPCA. Itseems that when an organizaton gets too big it loses its way. I support some of their causes but I will never again give them money.

Thanks for sharing our essay, Nancy. VeganLaura, FYI: is NOT run by the Center for Consumer Freedom -- their group is called HumaneWATCH and is intentionally named that to confuse animal advocates. is run by animal rights advocates who have dedicated their lives to helping animals and encouraging veganism. Site contributors include former animal farmers like Howard Lyman, sanctuary founders like Michelle Alley-Grubb, and investigators and animal rescuers like Patty Mark. We all are working together to debunk the myth that animals can be used and killed in a way that can be considered "humane," a myth that is sadly being propagated by many of the large animal protection organizations along with the meat industry. The web site's purpose is "To correct the misinformation that is associated with the Humane Myth, and to inspire a form of working for the peaceful transformation of our society that fully respects the inherent dignity and worth of animals and people alike.

HAPPY meat??? Is that a joke??? No, it's our sad reality ... Happy meat from happy animals, who where really happy when they were killed??? Happy cow-meat for the western world and happy dog-meat in Asia??? Is that the food that makes us happy???

So I agree to Rock H. - good comment!

I'm strictly against speciesism: STOP KILLING ANIMALS AL LOVER THE WORLD!

Go vegan, please - you won't believe how easy and delicious it is :)
Give it a try - that would make me happy!

So, what's the real deal here? Is a legitimate animal welfare group or not? i have cancelled my monthly donation to ASPCA months ago over the Quick Kill Bill. And I will not be renewing it until Ed Sayres is no longer its leader. Has Farm Sanctuary also lost its way??? HSUS will most likely not be receiving any donation from me either. I hope someone knowledgeable will reply to this post. A lot of true animal welfare advocates would like to help but with leaders like these, how can we trust any of them out there? Does anyone know of a group that truly helps animals????

How sad to discredit the animal right groups you don't agree with or approve of. How arrogant to think that you have all the answers. HSUS is doing wonderful work. I will not abandon them because your policiies are different and I might add ineffectual..

The main reason I don't give to the HSUS is the endless letters requesting donations, with notepads and keychains- for TWO YEARS- each and every time I return the envelope with a request to stop sending me mail. They have probably wasted 20-30 dollars on postage and trinkets for 2 years- money that could have gone to help an animal. Yeah, yeah, you gotta spend some money to make some money- but the obscene waste of funds is what infuriates me.

I support HSUS with a donation every year. I think they do good work. They are becoming more vocal and a lot of people hear their roar and think they are PETA. I disagree with Christine Stewart. I don't like being asked for money all the time either, but I do donate from one of there plea's for donations. I give to 14 animal charities and each month is a different charity. I would rather these organizations ask for money via email than by mail so the cost of paper and a stamp goes back to help the animals. Besides, think of all the trees we are saving.
