The 2018 Winter Olympics may be over, but for some of us the celebration of success continues. For Humane Society International, it was the closure of our 11th dog meat farm in South Korea, which happened during the Pyeongchang Games.

It’s a far cry from the thrills and spills of the slopestyle and the halfpipe to the shabby squalor of a dog meat farm, but that did not deter Gus Kenworthy from making the journey. As the Winter Games at Pyeongchang came to an end, the U.S. freestyle skier joined the Humane Society International rescue . . .
In December, Humane Society International’s Africa Wildlife Program Manager Nicci Wright received a call about a pangolin, named Ivory, rescued from traffickers who were attempting to sell him. Pangolins, poached to meet a demand for their scales and meat in Asia, are a protected species and are considered the most trafficked mammals in the world. . . .
So many of you, like so many of us within the HSUS family, care about dogs and their well-being. I’m proud of the work we’re doing to help dogs here and abroad, and wanted to share some news of our activities in this arena. The HSUS and Humane Society International work hands-on each day to . . .
In just two short years since its founding, our Humane Society International/Mexico office has made its mark in the protection of animals.
