It’s important to cultivate within ourselves the right sorts of values when it comes to animals, and that we put these beliefs into action. That’s the very purpose of The HSUS—to promote a collective consciousness in society about animals and to push for tangible progress on animal welfare issues in big and small ways. And it’s our mission to protect all animals, wild and domesticated.
You can assess our progress by reading about our work in the newspaper or reading our magazines or our web site. But every year, we produce an annual report to provide a summary for our members and supporters about the things we are doing. In addition to The HSUS's 2010 achievements I blogged about a few months ago, our new annual report offers a big-picture view of how we helped animals across the country and all over the world last year.
Now, I'm excited to share a fun new way to review the contents of our 2010 annual report, through a special online version, with great stories and images highlighting some of The HSUS’s major accomplishments of last year—including rescued puppy mill dogs, rehabilitated wildlife, farm animals saved from suffering, young people finding alternatives to dogfighting, and much more. It features testimonials from the many committed animal advocates, law enforcement agencies, and other groups we work with to rescue animals, reform corporate policies, strengthen animal protection laws, and educate people about animal protection.
Please take a few minutes to check it out today and share it with your friends and family. In the meantime, we're already halfway through 2011, continuing our many campaigns to celebrate the animals who share our world and to fight cruelty wherever we find it.
