There’s no animal welfare group like The HSUS, with program experts and campaigners working in such issue areas as animal research and testing, companion animal welfare, farm animal welfare, equine protection, and wildlife protection, aided by a team of lawyers, undercover investigators, lobbyists, scientists, veterinarians, field personnel, and communications specialists who make an impact for animals every day. Over the last few days, I’ve provided a running narrative about our accomplishments and progress in 2012 in our major program areas.
There’s another way to tell the story of our work, and that’s through our videos. Today, I’ve assembled ten HSUS videos that tell our story. They will lift you up and also inflame you. They will educate you and call you to act. Most of all, I hope they remind you of the vital work The HSUS does every day in the United States and across the globe, and the important role that you play as a supporter and active advocate yourself.
