Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- PayPal, the world’s largest money transfer service for online transactions, has aligned itself with the animal “rights” extremists at the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) through a deceptively named campaign called Paws United for a Cause!
PayPal has pledged to match donations made to HSUS through its Facebook page, up to a total of $100K, through August 31.
HSUS is no stranger to the charge of being deceptive, to put it mildly. The organization has long been accused of misleading people into thinking it has an actual relationship to directly helping mistreated or abandoned pets by operating shelters. In 2011, the group’s own tax records indicate it gave less than 1% of donor funds to pet shelters.
To add to the deception about HSUS, PayPal’s page through which it promotes contributions to the organization (not the actual Facebook-promoted Paws United campaign) includes the statement that HSUS “receives high marks from charity evaluators.” But is this really true?
