The HSUS is committed to creating a safer, kinder world for cats, dogs and other animal companions. We provide legislators, communities, shelters, and pet owners the tools and information they need to eliminate animal cruelty, end the tragedy of pet overpopulation, and provide safe, happy homes for companion animals (and their people).
