As the nation's largest and most effective animal protection organization, The Humane Society of the United States has been a leading voice for animals for more than 50 years. We believe in a truly humane society, and work to reduce suffering and create meaningful social change for animals in every way possible -- from providing direct care and response in the field when animals are in crisis, to working with corporate leaders and lawmakers to adopt policies preventing animals from ending up in distress in the first place.

Please watch the video to the right to learn more about The HSUS and the animals you will help by becoming a Humane Hero today.

Here at The Humane Society of the United States, we rely on heroes like you to help us stop animal cruelty and create a more humane society for animals and people alike. Last year alone, we provided direct care to more than 176,829 animals and helped get critical pieces of legislation passed because of our generous supporters.

We campaign for critical reforms in industries that mistreat animals -- taking on the sealers who slaughter baby seals for their fur pelts, the factory farms that cram breeding pigs into small metal cages, and the puppy millers who treat dogs as little more than a cash crop. We work toward a better future for animals by sponsoring worldwide spay and neuter efforts, providing free veterinary care in underserved communities, driving scientific development of alternatives to animal testing, and promoting sustainable, more humane agriculture.

With your help, we will never stop celebrating animals and fighting against all forms of animal cruelty and abuse.

Be a hero today by joining us in our fight to improve the lives of animals everywhere. Please make a tax-deductible donation today, or you can support our work all year round by setting up a monthly gift* to help animals.

We can't continue our lifesaving work for animals without the support of generous heroes like you. On behalf of the animals we work for every day, thank you.
