Will Coggin: PETA and HSUS Take the Money and Run Post-Harvey, Irma; Animals Left in the Lurch

September 19, 2017

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and the Humane Society of the United States are appealing to people’s love for animals, requesting donations to help them help the animals left behind or left homeless by the storms, yet little aid is offered.

Will Coggin, says people should not be fooled by pleas from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and the Humane Society of the United States  for donations to help them help the animals left behind or left homeless by Hurricane's Harvey and Irma. In the past, money given to these groups has not gone to shelter animals but to fill the groups own foreign bank accounts, with PETA actually euthanizing 85 to 90 percent of the animals they take in. Coggin argues, HSUS and PETA are in it for the money not the animals. Give to local charities if you want to help animals.
