Postcards from Our Animal Care Centers

By on September 17, 2009 with 0 Comments By Wayne Pacelle

Earlier this week, HSUS staff enjoyed a lunchtime presentation by the directors of our animal care centers, and the sense of pride in the room was palpable. When you combine The HSUS’s five animal care facilities with our vigorous field work, there is no other group that has the range of hands-on care services for animals. We have wildlife centers in Massachusetts, California and Florida, our Duchess Sanctuary in Oregon for horses, and the Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch, which cares for more than 1,000 animals, in east Texas.

The breadth and commitment of work at each of these facilities is awe-inspiring, with dozens of species being cared for and offered a second chance. Each of the residents—some temporary and some permanent—carries a special story, and today I wanted to give you just a glimpse, sharing a photo from each of the five facilities. I encourage you to visit the websites of each to dig deeper into their work and learn more about the animals who find safe harbor with us.
