The Animal Agriculture Alliance has learned of a new campaign to petition the IRS to investigate alleged under-reported lobbying activities of the Humane Society of the United States. Frank Losey of the Illinois Professional Pet Breeders Association and Karen Strange of the Missouri Federation of Animal Owners are heading up an effort to coordinate thousands of letters and e-mails to policy makers requesting that HSUS be revoked of its tax-exempt status due to excessive lobbying at both the state and federal levels.
The Alliance, which was not involved in the planning of this campaign, believes it may be of interest to members. HSUS’ activities target farmers, ranchers, pet owners, hunters, and scientists by working to eliminate the right to own and enjoy animals.
Those who are interested in participating in the campaign should send a letter to the IRS by Certified Mail and e-mail their Senators and Member of Congress before Jan. 1. The organizers believe these tactics will increase the chance of IRS action.
The Sportsmen’s and Animal Owners Voting Alliance has published detailed information about the campaign on its Web site.
