Finally, a pet association with the words “Humane Society” in their name that actually puts its resources toward helping unwanted animals.
Recently, the new Humane Society for Shelter Pets (HSSP), just launched in a big way with ads in the New York Times, Chicago Tribune and USA Today to announce the launch of its new 501 (c)3non-profit organization. See the ad here.
Why should the food animal industry care? Because here is an organization helping to educate consumers about the true nature of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) which does not support local animal shelters and is a vegan-oriented organization that would like to see the end of animal agriculture. In these times, we can use all the help we can get.
HSSP is dedicated to educating consumers, animal rescue organizations and veterinarians on how and where they can interact with their local animal shelters instead of pouring money into the gaping maw that is the HSUS which funds a lot of big salaries and lobbyists but doesn’t directly help animals.
So check them out here. And encourage well-meaning folks you know who want to contribute to unwanted pet shelters to go local. The HSSP can show them how.
