The Humane Society of the United States estimates that animal shelters care for 6-8 million dogs and cats every year in the United States, of whom approximately 3-4 million are euthanized. All of these homeless animals need food, care and permanent loving homes.
about The Humane Society of the United States
For more than a half-century, The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has stood as the nation's most important advocate for local humane societies. The HSUS and its partner, The Fund for Animals, provide sanctuary and direct care to thousands of creatures, big and small through the Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch in Texas, two Wildlife Centers and a Rabbit Sanctuary. Additionally, through its affiliate Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association, The HSUS provides no-cost veterinary care to dogs and cats in low-income communities around the world. In 2008, The HSUS provided more than 26,000 treatments valued at $1.2 million in free services.
