Take Action: Submit Your Animal Photos To HumaneWatch

Take Action: Submit Your Animal Photos To HumaneWatch

HSUS is at it again -- this time in Nebraska. After Gov. Dave Heineman made some pretty strong statements that the state will fight HSUS in Nebraska, the anti-agriculture organization is countering with a manipulative social media campaign. HumaneWatch explains the situation and calls to action farmers and ranchers to help share the agriculture story to Nebraska voters. Don’t delay; your help is needed on this campaign!

According to HumaneWatch, “HSUS has launched a new assault on Nebraska farmers and ranchers. HSUS attacked the governor after he stood up for animal agriculture and against HSUS—which has said it wants to eliminate animal agriculture. It’s a politically opportunistic move, and now HSUS has launched a “We Are Nebraska” campaign, asking its supporters to submit photos of themselves and their animals (so far, it's almost all pets). It’s yet another bait-and-switch campaign: The real issue is HSUS’s anti-agriculture agenda, and it's using photos of dogs and cats to distract. But that’s nothing new for HSUS -- its deceptive ads have a similarly manipulative formula.

“We’re calling on Nebraska farmers and ranchers: Submit a photo of yourself, your animals or (better yet) you with your animals, to the HumaneWatch Facebook wall and show your support for agriculture.”

Here’s how:

  1. “Like” the HumaneWatch Facebook Page.
  2. Then, tag a photo of you and your animal to the HumaneWatch page,
  3. Simply click “Upload Photo” to select a photo from your hard drive, or
  4. Email
  5. Don’t forget to include a description of your ranch photos to help share the ag story!
