Senator Floyd Nicholson and representatives of the Humane Society of Greenwood met to discuss animal protection issues in South Carolina, including pending bills:  Dangerous Animal Act (H. 3985), Felony Cockfighting (S. 529/H. 3049), Animal Cruelty (S. 193), and Large-Scale Animal Abuse (H. 3392).  

The meeting was prompted by the Humane Society of the United States' Humane Lobby Day, an event for animal advocates to meet with their elected officials in their home districts.  Over the past three weeks, meetings like this have been held held across the state as advocates for animal welfare meet with their legislators to voice support for Humane Legislation.

The HSUS is not your local animal shelter. The HSUA has been hijacked by radical animal rights activist. It is an over 150 million dollar corporation that spends almost every dime it gets on obscene salaries and filing lawsuits. It raises money by showing ads of cute dogs and cats, but it spends less then 1 cent on the dollar to feed and shelter cats and dogs. The HSUS is being investigated for fraud and it was convicted of racketeering in Florida. More and more members of congress are questioning the tax free status of the HSUS because of its political activities. The HSUS IS AGAINST RODEO AND WESTERN TRADITIONS. IT IS FOR A VEGETERIAN LIFE STYLE AND AGAINST EATING MEAT. The HSUS says it spends 79% of its money for animal welfare programs, but it does not say what they are. The HSUS has been accused of paying employees to abuse animals and videoing the abuse as proof that meat production should be stopped. The HSUS uses some of its money to change our eating habits and standard of living by working to outlaw farming methods which are used on family farms. The HSUS is bad for America so don't applaud its lackeys. If you want to support something think about giving to the child fund, St. Jude, the Wounded Warriors, or you local food bank. If you want to help animals, give money to you local animal shelter. Giving money to the HSUS is throwing money away on a bloated bureaucracy that waste it on salaries and litigation. It claims to do good but if you really look at what it does, it only piggybacks on the work of local organizations.
