Before Tommy Bahama drops its new fall collection, the casual clothing retailer wisely decided to drop its partnership with HSUS. The Father’s Day favorite previously gave five percent of the profits in its line of dog beds to HSUS, but the clothing store is no longer listed as a corporate sponsor on HSUS’s site.
Perhaps Tommy Bahama realized that if you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas.
Corporate partnerships allow the Humane Society of the United States to masquerade as a legitimate organization while it promotes its radical vegan agenda. Fortunately, more and more businesses are wising up to HSUS’s duplicitous donation strategy. This April, Discover dropped its affinity card partnership after our “Discover the Scam” campaign exposed HSUS’s con job.
The Humane Society of the United States should expect the loss of more corporate sponsors in the near future. In the past few years CharityWatch has given HSUS D and C- minus grades, and last year Charity Navigator issued a “Donor Advisory” against the radical animal-rights outfit.
To stop this pet scam in its tracks, all remaining corporate partners need to give HSUS the boot and partner with local shelters that actually make a difference.
