We Did It

You responded, and we are sending a major message to the extremist wing of the hunting lobby. Yesterday, I issued a call to raise $10,000 after the radical U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance (USSA), in a despicable move, intimidated Meijer department stores into dropping its support of a fund we created to help keep pets with their families during home foreclosures. Already, supporters have donated more than $25,000—and counting—to help the pet victims of the foreclosure crisis and to save wildlife from horrible abuses such as captive shoots and polar bear trophy hunting. If you’d like to join me in giving USSA a pointed lesson about compassion, please donate to our campaign to end wildlife abuses or to our Foreclosure Pets Grant Fund.

I will soon send a letter to the Sportsmen’s Alliance and let them know that they’ve helped us raise money for pets and for fighting canned hunts and the other inhumane and unsporting practices that are the group’s favored activities.

And if they attempt to tamper with our business relationships to help pets or other animals, we’ll do the same the next time.
