Despite their deceptive tug-at-your heartstrings television ads featuring shelter animals, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) doesn’t operate a single pet shelter or adoption facility anywhere. The HSUS is NOT associated in any way with your local Humane Society. It does NOT provide local shelters with funding. In reality, the HSUS is a wealthy animal-rights lobbying organization (the largest and richest on earth) that crusades for the same goals as PETA and other radical groups. HSUS campaigns intentionally distort facts and misrepresent the organization as an animal welfare or animal protection group. They are neither.

I savor this magazine in the same way that I delight in a dog show. It's a decadent feast of eye candy; a taste of something that overflows with delight and drama; fraught with potential danger, yet, at the same time, so wickedly delicious!

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated” Mohandas Gandhi
This is one of those oft-repeated platitudes that is more a feel-good concept than it is a reflection of reality.
- The ancient Egyptians worshipped cats, yet practiced slavery.
- Indians esteem cattle, yet maintain an oppressive caste system.
- Nazi Germany pioneered the modern era of animals rights philosophy, but had no qualms about exterminating eleven million human beings.
