From Sportsman's Alliance

Two pet supply companies have failed to terminate their

partnerships with

the Humane

Society of the United States (HSUS) despite significant pressure

from

sportsmen. The U.S.

Sportsmen’s Alliance urges hunters to continue efforts to inform

the

businesses of HSUS’s

anti-hunting agenda and demand that the relationships cease.

U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance and

PETsMART

The charitable arm of PETsMART made a $15,000 contribution to HSUS

for spay

and neuter

programs. The U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance does not take issue with

the

spaying and

neutering of pets. However, every dollar that HSUS receives from

corporate

America to

fund such programs represents money that is made available for its

national

campaigns to

end hunting, trapping and fishing.

To emphasize that point, according to a recent article in Worth

Magazine,

HSUS brought in

$65 million in revenue in 2000, but gave out only $1.6 million in

cash

grants to animal

protection groups. In fact, Worth reports that the American

Institute of

Philanthropy “gives

the group a D for spending as much as 53 percent of its expenses on

fundraising.”

Sportsmen and sportswomen should express their dissatisfaction with

PETsMART’s support

of HSUS by contacting Philip Francis, President & CEO, PETsMART,

Inc.,

19601 N. 27th

Ave., Phoenix, AZ 85027; Phone: 800-738-1385. You can also send

PETCO

The charitable arm of PETCO is sponsoring the HSUS’s National

Association

for Humane

and Environmental Education (NAHEE) Adopt a Teacher program in 500

elementary schools

across the country. The program is part of the group’s plan to

introduce

children,

kindergarten through grade six, to the animal rights movement.

The Adopt a Teacher program places the HSUS publication Kids In

Nature’s

Defense (KIND)

News into the hands of teachers and students on a monthly basis

during the

school year.

It provides classrooms with materials that promote the HSUS and its

agenda.

Take Action! Sportsmen should contact PETCO and let the company

know that

its support of an

anti-hunting group is unacceptable. Contact Brian Devine,

President & CEO,

PETCO Animal

Supplies, Inc., 9125 Rehco Rd., San Diego, CA 92121. Phone: (858)

These companies don't understand that the animal rights group will not be satisfied with anything other than completely getting rid of animals. Any effort to pacify them will only increase their ability to put pressure on other companies.
