Humane Society International
Thank you for your generous commitment to Humane Society International in support of our work to protect all animals. Active on nearly every continent, HSI is one of the few international animal protection organizations working to protect all animals.
With your help, we continue to make substantial strides in animal welfare globally promoting the human-animal bond to close dog meat farms, protect street animals, support farm animal welfare, stop wildlife abuse, curtail and eliminate painful animal testing for cosmetics, respond to natural disasters and confront cruelty to animals in all of its forms. With the support of donors and advocates, we are endeavoring to create a humane and sustainable world for all animals, including people, through education, advocacy and the promotion of respect and caring.
Humane Society International drives positive change for animals through:
Making the world a better place for farm animals - expanded our efforts to eliminate battery cages for egg-laying hens around the world. Through our hands-on plant-based culinary programs, we trained chefs in school districts, universities, corporate cafeterias and other institutions across the world.
Rescuing animals trapped in natural disasters - HSI’s disaster response team provided on-the-ground relief work following the Volcan de Fuego eruption. HSI responders provided emergency treatment to dogs, cats, chickens, horses and other animals, more than 900 in all. In India, we helped with the rescue, treatment and care of animals after floods devastated the state of Kerala and its surrounding states, rescuing more than 200 animals.
Making progress on ending animal testing - Japan and South Korea announced the end of year-long pesticide poisoning tests on beagle dogs. HSI has led the global campaign to abolish this test since 2010. In India, pesticide safety standards were amended to include reduction in animal usage and replacing animals with non-animal methods. In Brazil, HSI successfully campaigned for a cosmetic animal testing ban in the state of Minas Gerais.
Striking against dog meat and other companion animal cruelties In 2021, we closed our 18th dog meat farm in South Korea and rescued more than 200 dogs, bringing the total number of dogs rescued since we started this work to more than 2,000. We also strengthened our partnerships with leading Korean animal groups, and assisted Seongnam city council in shutting down and demolishing South Korea’s largest dog slaughterhouse.
Please encourage your colleagues to give as well so together we can continue to be the leading force for animal welfare worldwide.
