Thank you U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance. The Ohio-based radical hunting organization derailed a program we launched with Meijer to generate an additional $5,000 for our fund to help pets and shelters affected by the home foreclosure crisis. I updated you on the issue yesterday—noting that we’d eclipsed our goal of raising twice the amount ($10,000) in order to help animals and teach USSA a lesson.

Well, in this update, I am happy to report that we have continued our fundraising surge, thanks to you. As a result of my call to action we’ve now raised $43,000 for the foreclosure fund, and more than $10,000 for the wildlife abuses campaign—for a total now exceeding $53,000—more than 10 times what USSA tried to deny us, and the animals. A hearty thanks to all of you who stepped up to help and to send USSA a signal.

Now that we have this tool in place, we’ll use it every time USSA tries to rear its ugly head and disrupt a business relationship. We’ll not take their nonsense any more.

So, I say to USSA—thanks for the lift in fundraising to allow us to help pets and take on the wildlife abuses you so happily defend. They’ll be receiving a formal letter of thanks from me soon, indicating that they’ve hurt their cause and allowed us to expand our programs in a major way.

P.S. Outdoors writer Ted Williams, in his blog on Fly Rod & Reel, had a great post on the issue that I wanted to share with you.
