My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Humane Society of the United States, Washington, DC, USA
I recently joined the HSUS at the end of September as a faith outreach volunteer. I was able to attend a retreat at Pony Powers Therapies, and learned so much about all the great work that this organization does for the welfare of animals. At the retreat, I was educated on what really happens in the equestrian world. I was introduced to doping and the big lick, and I couldn't believe the harsh reality of it. I'm happy the HSUS is working with the race industry to aide the passing of The Horse Integrity Act. Not only did I learn about horses, but I also learned about other legislation that has been passed through the efforts of the HSUS. Recently, Union county passed the puppy mill ban ordinance. They are the 112th town in NJ to do so, and I believe it is because of the hard work and dedication of the leaders and volunteers of the HSUS. The people of this organization truly care about animals, and they help spread the message of what changes need to be made to protect them.
