“[T]he Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is not affiliated with, nor is it a parent organization for, local humane societies, animal shelters, or animal care and control agencies … The HSUS does not operate or have direct control over any animal shelter.” — From a 2001 disclaimer issued by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS)

“The life of an ant and that of my child should be granted equal consideration.” — HSUS senior scholar Michael W. Fox

“The Humane Society should be worried about protecting animals from cruelty. It’s not doing that. The place is all about power and money.” — HSUS consultant and former HSUS Chief Investigator Robert Baker, in U.S. News & World Report (October 2, 1995)

“I’m not an admirer of HSUS. They’ve always been primarily a direct-mail operation, and what’s known in animal rights circles as a credit-grabber.” — HSUS co-founder Cleveland Amory

“My goal is the abolition of all animal agriculture.” — HSUS grassroots coordinator John “J.P.” Goodwin

“We’ve started picketing outside the homes of the [department store] executives … Those executives do not deserve a break. They do not deserve to go home and rest.” — J.P. Goodwin describing his anti-fur strategy

“HSUS really needs to be called to task for its triple sided hypocrisy. When HSUS addresses scientists they say they support animal research as necessary. When HSUS addresses the public they say it is evil but sometimes necessary. When HSUS addresses its members and other animal rights groups, they say it is evil and unnecessary.” — Dr. Pat Cleveland of the University of California, San Diego
