When Rick Berman of the front group Center for Consumer Freedom isn’t shilling for liquor interests, junk food peddlers, or the tanning bed industry, he’s cuddling up to a wide variety of sectors causing harm to animals. He’s got a big following among cockfighters, seal clubbers, . . .

As this year’s general election approaches, candidates are already airing millions in attack ads. It’s that season. For us at The HSUS, it’s always that season. Puppy millers, sealers, factory farmers, and others attack and criticize us about everything we do–not because we don’t use . . .

Supporters of The HSUS can see our results in the form of animals rescued, cruelty prevented, and awareness built. I’m also glad to report that both The HSUS and Humane Society International just received four stars, the highest rating, from the independent charity evaluator Charity Navigator.
