Oh the humanity...

There's an uproar going around after someone discovered that if you donate money to the Humane Society of the United States, only about a penny per dollar goes to local animal shelters. People are reacting in shock and dismay that they've sent their money to a large national non-profit and it hasn't ended up with their small local organization.

Seriously?

Donating to small animal-focused organizations that help in specific communities is a great idea, but it's not the primary mission of the national Humane Society. Their primary mission is large-scale advocacy and lobbying, along with assistance in major emergency situations. Frankly, it's great to hear that as much as a penny per dollar is finding its way to local organizations.
