Pulaski Train Station

When you park in that lot be very careful not to leave anything valuable in your vehicle. They like to break in and take what doesn’t belong to them. I don’t have a radio in my truck because they have stolen it twice. I have a hole in my dash where the radio used to be and would you believe they tried to break in my truck AGAIN!! I HAVE AN ALARM ON MY TRUCK AND THEY ARE STILL TRYING TO GET IN. Be careful parking there the police won’t do anything about it BUT they want you to give a donation. Yeah like I’m going to do that!!

Stop Donating to the Humane Society of the United States! Why???

Many Chicagoans are animal-lovers-- as myself--so learning of this outrage involving a long-standing 'animal-welfare' organization, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), I had to post. Here's a link to Humane Watch group, that 'outed' the abuses of HSUS.

A family member showed me a letter from Humane Watch, detailing allegations against heads of HSUS. It was sent to all who donated to the HSUS in the past (apparently, H.W. has the same lists). Describing:

A family member showed me a letter from Humane Watch, detailing allegations against heads of HSUS. It was sent to all who donated to the HSUS in the past (apparently, H.W. has the same lists). Describing:

-HSUS uses the "humane" tag to emotionally prey on the public (deliberately confusing
& taking away funds from local shelters using that same tagname, "humane society").
- HSUS has "Zero Pet Shelters"--count 'em-- 0!!; giving a measly 1% of its $120 Mil budget to local shelters
- Its CEO & VP-- now both gone (Wayne Paelle, a 20-year top-dog there who was getting paid 380K a year, & Paul Shapiro, were both accused of years-long sexual harassment & abuse of employees, interns, & volunteers; involving threats, payoffs (w. donor funds!) & punishments (demotions, etc.).
- The Board of Directors (most still extant!), were mostly hand-picked by Paelle & enabled this perverse climate to go on for years
- HSUS spends 1/2 its large budget on raising MORE money (via galas, Hollywood bashes, etc.)! Recently, one of their companies was fined by the FTC for "deceptive fundraising"; & in a federal case, it was fined an $11 million "racketeering fine" for paying a federal witness under the table!
- IRS records reveal HSUS has socked away $50 million in donor monies to various Caribbean accounts; absolutely no transparency, explanation, oversight!

Shred any HSUS mailings pronto!!
Instead, donate to local animal shelters & welfare organizations to help the animals in your communities.
Vet any larger national orgs (animal welfare or otherwise) that you are considering donating your hard-earned dollars to in the future.
