Why did we choose this infographic today? Because next week is National Volunteer Week and this graphic points out the very critical role that volunteers play in their local shelters.
Truly, the care of our shelter animals cannot be done without the effort of volunteers - and you can see in part why this is so in the graphic below.
HumaneWatch published this back in November 2012 when the HSUS released their 2012 tax info. And since today is Tax Day in the U.S., we thought it was timely.
We're not saying the HSUS isn't doing some good somewhere. (and we're also not saying we support the HSUS either!) We are simply pointing out that their efforts are not directly impacting your local shelter financially. Those shelters depend on you.

According to HumaneWatch, only 1% of the Humane Society's budget helps local pet shelters. HumaneWatch also encourages you to donate locally.
