Award Programs & Special Events
Be a force for change and join The Humane Society of the United States for our To the Rescue! Los Angeles benefit on Saturday, May 7th in the New York City Back Lot of Paramount Studios to raise support for our Farm Animal Protection campaign. Working to give a voice to farm animals, The HSUS is making history for farm animals, reducing the number of animals raised and killed for food by helping large institutions, such as school districts and hospital chains, implement popular campaigns like Meatless Monday. In addition, we're working with major retailers to reduce animal suffering in their supply chains by helping them phase out the worst factory farming practices. And of course, The HSUS routinely conducts undercover investigations into the hidden world of factory farming and slaughter plants.
With your support, our investigations have led to slaughter plant closures, meat recalls, criminal convictions and federal policies to protect animals. Help us make history for animals throughout the country and right here in our backyard.
