Since 1954, we’ve taken on the biggest fights for animals across the country and around the world. The major issues impacting animals have changed over the years, but our mission remains the same: To create a more humane society. Together with millions of supporters, the Humane Society of the United States takes on puppy mills, factory farms, the fur trade, trophy hunting, animal cosmetics testing and other cruel industries. We rescue and care for thousands of animals every year through our rescue and response team and other hands-on animal care services. We fight all forms of animal cruelty to achieve the vision behind our name: a humane society.
