Perhaps you've seen the disgruntled kitty on the subway, in Times Square or in The Dodo.
A little-known group with deep pockets runs advertisement after advertisement online, in print, on television and elsewhere. Look out, the ads say. There's something you need to know about The Humane Society of the United States.
Isn't attacking the Humane Society of the U.S. like attacking mom, or apple pie? I've lost track of the number of conversations I've had with friends, family members and even strangers, confounded by the idea that our organization would have adversaries. But it's true.
Since 1954, The HSUS has been attacking large-scale mistreatment of animals nationally and globally. Our founders knew local shelters weren't able to do this kind of work, because their mission is to help animals in their community find homes. Together with our affiliates, we do rescue and provide direct care to tens of thousands of animals every year. But our primary mission is to prevent cruelty to millions more before they end up in distress.
