Back in the days prior to the establishment of the Humane Society of the United States, there was so much cruelty meted out on animals in labs, slaughterhouses and puppy mills. In an effort to reduce on the brutalities to which the animals faced in such places as mentioned above, the birth of the Humane Society of the United States came by. The main objective of the Humane Society of the United States is to study laws, be out on the forefront and try as much as they can to change laws that seem to permit for cruel treatment of animals during animal lab testing, in the fashion industry and the other industries. There is as well the established arm, that came to be in the year 1991, and this is the Humane Society International, HSI, which is in actual sense an arm of the Humane Society of the United States, HSUS. The Humane Society International, HSI, is as well of the core objective of watching over the inhumane practices that may be affecting the companion and farm animals, the risks to which the rare species happen to be exposed to, the massacre of the marine animals and as well the use of animals in research and testing.
Taking a look back at what was in the HSUS Annual Report of 2001, it was lucidly reiterated that the core mission of the society ever since it was founded in the year 1954 was to create a humane and sustainable world for all animals and persons via education, advocacy and the championing of respect and compassion. It has a strong commitment to protecting all animals using a wide array of means falling under the HSUS Major Initiatives.
By far and large, the Humane Society has such an array of programs that allow them achieve the objective of supporting responsible pet ownership and as well encourage elimination of the brutality in trapping and hunting. Just as we have seen mentioned above, the Humane Society essentially has their focus on the protection of animals in advocacy and as well laws that are relating to animals and their wellbeing. This is the body that can be said to police and track the enforcement of the laws that are there already that tend to advance animal protection. In case there happens to be any kind of inhumane treatment of animals in places and acts such as in films, racing and those used for research purposes, the Humane Society will be the body to reveal and talk on these issues affecting animals. The above facts as such reveal to us the fact that thanks to the mission of the Humane Society, there has been made such an impact and big difference in the lives and well-being of animals as displayed on this homepage.
Pets and companion animals can as such be better taken care of and neglect and abandonment will be reduced as a result of the advocacy and education by the Humane Society.
