Bank of America is partnering with the Humane Society of the United States – releasing a new HSUS-themed credit card. The card will provide HSUS with 60-dollars for every new account opened and an additional 25-cents for every 100-dollars spent. The Animal Agriculture Alliance wrote to Bank of America’s President to request that the bank stop funding groups like HSUS that seek to eliminate animal agriculture. The Alliance is currently a Bank of America customer – but says it would be forced to reconsider that relationship if the bank continues to support groups that unfairly attack the way of life of America’s Farmers and Ranchers. The Alliance has not received a response.
The Animal Agriculture Alliance is encouraging all ag stakeholders to write their own local Bank of America to share the true agenda of animal rights extremists and ask them to drop their support for HSUS. They note social media can also be utilized by tweeting concerns to Bank of America or sharing a post on the bank’s Facebook page.
