50 Things You Can Do for Animals and The HSUS

By on October 22, 2009 with 0 Comments By Wayne Pacelle

I have been conducting Town Hall meetings around the nation, and next week, I hit San Francisco and Los Angeles. The week after, I visit Cleveland, Columbus, and Cincinnati.

I truly enjoy meeting our members, giving them the latest updates on our progress, and hearing from them about issues of importance.

One of the most frequently asked questions is, "How can I be involved and what can I do to help The HSUS and animal protection?"

I tell them that neither The HSUS nor the larger cause of animal protection can succeed without their active involvement in the cause. Each one of us can and must act, often in a variety of ways.

With such people in mind, I am updating and republishing a list of 50 potential action items for those who want to become more involved in our work—whether or not you come to one of my Town Hall meetings. Please take some time to go through the full roster. Print the list and check off the items over the next few weeks and months, or even over the next year, making your way through as much of it as you can.

We'll succeed as a movement when we have millions of our supporters who take these and other positive actions for animals. When we act in a collective way, we are a powerful force in our communities, in the political arena, and in the marketplace. And we can all pitch in to raise funds to support the vital work of The HSUS and allow it to grow and be a more powerful and effective force.
