Review for The Humane Society of the United States, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I worked with the HSUS to pass stronger laws to protect farm animals in Ohio. The HSUS organized a statewide campaign and brought awareness to the 8 million pigs and 27 million hens in intensive confinement on farms in the state. Many people with an economic interest in keeping the status quo did not like the campaign, but over 500,000 people signed the ballot petition in just three months, a state record for signature gathering. Obviously there was a lot of support.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

All the laws that that HSUS sought to protect farm animals in Ohio came to fruition, not by force, but by an agreement with the Ohio Farm Bureau.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Review for The Humane Society of the United States, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Humane Society of the United States is a wonderful organization that helps animals on a daily basis in many different ways. They work for better laws to protect animals in puppy mills, factory farms, fighting operations, and more. They provide direct care for thousands of animals in their five sanctuaries. They support local shelters with direct grants and professional development, resources, and tens of thousands of free spay and neuters around the country. And they perform direct rescues of animals in hoarding situations, fighting rings, puppy mills, and natural disasters on an almost weekly basis. The HSUS is my favorite animal nonprofit, worth every dime of the money I donate.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

This fall in Ohio the HSUS rescued over 200 pit bulls from a fighting operation, the largest rescue of its kind ever. Almost all of those dogs have new homes now, thanks to the HSUS. I also volunteered on the humane farms campaign in Ohio this spring. Thanks to the HSUS, the state farm bureau now recognizes that this is a consumer movement that they should listen to, and a compromise agreement was reached. The HSUS has been working directly with the state livestock care board ever since.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None.
