The Society and the Humane Society-The Significance of the Humane Societies
Back in the days prior to the establishment of the Humane Society of the United States, there was so much cruelty meted out on animals in labs, slaughterhouses and puppy mills. To prevent such kinds of unkind acts on animals, the Humane Society of the United States was born. One of the key objects that the Humane Society of the United States seeks to achieve is to protect animals in the fashion industry, those for laboratory testing and the other industries by studying laws, lobbying and championing for changes to the legislations that tend to allow for inhuman treatment of animals in the sectors. The Humane Society of the United States, HSUS, has an international arm established in 1991. This body and arm of the Humane Society is as well concerned with the need to address the inhumane practices and habits that animals, pet and farm animals face, the dangers facing the endangered species, killing of the marine species, and as well the use of animals in research and testing.
If the statement of the HSUS Annual report of 2001 were anything to go by, it can be seen that the core mission of the society since it came to being was to create such a humane world for all animals and humans as well through the education, advocacy and promotion of the virtues of respect and compassion. HSUS Major Initiatives schedule clearly states that the commitment of the society is to protect all animals using a wide range of methods.
By far and large, the Humane Society has such an array of programs that allow them achieve the objective of supporting responsible pet ownership and as well encourage elimination of the brutality in trapping and hunting. Like we have already touched on above, it advocates for animal protection and passing of laws touching on animal welfare. It is the Humane Society that is basically considered as the one responsible for the monitoring of the enforcement of laws regarding on animal protection. In case there happens to be any kind of inhumane treatment of animals in places and acts such as in films, racing and those used for research purposes, the Humane Society will be the body to reveal and talk on these issues affecting animals. The above facts as such reveal to us the fact that thanks to the mission of the Humane Society, there has been made such an impact and big difference in the lives and well-being of animals as displayed on this homepage.
Acts such as abandonment and neglect of pets will be addressed effectively all to the advocacy and education done by the Humane Society.
