HSUS Fundraising Pitch Related to Michael Vick, 18 July 2007

This is Google’s “cache” of an HSUS Internet fund-raising pitch dated July 18, 2007.

It asks Americans to:

“make a special gift to help The Humane Society of the United States care for the dogs seized in the Michael Vick case … your gift will be put to use right away to care for these dogs.”

Two weeks after Google captured this page, HSUS CEO Wayne Pacelle told The New York Times that his organization (1) didn’t have custody of Michael Vick’s dogs; (2) didn’t know anything about the conditions in which they were being kept; and (3) recommended to federal government authorities that all of them should be euthanized.
