Work Of The Humane Society Of The United States.
Most people have a perception of the humane society of the united states as being an organization that has many animals which are waiting for people to adopt. While part of the work conducted by the organization is to help the local organizations in their work, HSUS’s work is usually more than that. Celebrating Animals, Confronting Cruelty is the motto of the organization and represents the complex work that is carried out by the organization.
Today in the world, there are a thousand of animal species. The HSUS work is to protect, save, and rescue these animals. Although most of the organizations work is carried out in the United States, HSUS has extended to other countries with some its work being to rescue some of the animals in the Ocean. The animals rescued by the organization have been involved in racing, rodeos, Zoos, circuses, hunting, fashion, aquariums and research. However, these are some of the activities because the list is long.
Another major work f the HSUS is to work with the pet owners at home and also providing support to various local animal shelters through the utilization of the various animal professionals which it has. HSUS has been a leading organization in lobbying for laws related to animals both locally and internally. It is the aim of the organization that through the legislation animal cruelty will be dealt with. There are instances when disasters occur, such as the Hurricane Katrina or the Tsunami which hit South East Asia. In such scenarios the HSUS is always ready to travel in the area to help in the rescue mission of the animals. The HSUS has programs that ensures that home owners are educated about the backyard animals such as squirrels.
The history of animal welfare organizations has a long history and started way before HSUS was founded. The first one was the society for the prevention of cruelty of animals which was founded in 1886. Prior to this organization, there had not been another such organization in the U.S. There are however many other organizations that came up. In a delegates meeting held by the various animal rights organizations in 1887, there was an agreement that all the organizations should be collapsed to for the American Humane Association. The disagreements among some members led to some of the leaving and forming HSUS.
HSUS works to ensure that all cruelty against animals has been eliminated in the whole world. Among the first pieces of legislation was the one to fight against mistreatment of animals used for research. Many laws in the U.S have passed. The laws range from those protecting endangered species to those that make it illegal to mistreat research animals inhumanly.
