Center for Consumer Freedom complains to FTC about HSUS

The Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF) has filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission against the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) for “orchestrating a deceptive advertising campaign,” the organization said in a news release. Specifically, CCF complains that in November 2017, HSUS drove traffic to a web page on its domain that contained false information. On the web page in question, a graphic claimed that only 19 percent of HSUS donations are spent on fundraising. However, HSUS’ Form 990 tax return for 2016, its most recent filing, shows that the organization spends at least 29 percent of its budget on fundraising, the group said.
