Reprint Requests

Can I reprint articles from The Humane Society of the United States' website on my web site or in a publication?
We welcome and encourage limited reprints of written content from www.humanesociety.org and other HSUS websites. You do not have to contact us if your request meets the following terms and conditions:

  • You use the article solely for the informational and educational purposes for which it is intended.
  • You reprint no more than ten (10) distinct pieces of HSUS-written content on your website(s). One article is considered one piece of written content. You cannot rotate different articles on and off your web site to accommodate this condition. If you wish to reprint more than ten pieces of written content, then please e-mail us with your request via the webmaster contact form link below.
  • The text is not altered. If you wish to reprint portions of the text or modify the text in minor ways, please email us with a complete description of how you wish to do so via the webmaster contact form link below. We're generally amenable to these kinds of requests.
  • Credit is given as follows: "Reprinted by permission of The Humane Society of the United States." When our materials are reprinted online, the words "The Humane Society of the United States" must be a clickable text link to our website, www.humanesociety.org. Please note that we do not permit the use of The HSUS logo when crediting our materials. Our logo is a registered trademark of The Humane Society of the United States.
  • You are an individual or you represent a nonprofit or academic institution. If you represent a for-profit company that would like to republish a particular article because it fits with a specific company mission or publication, we ask that you email your request to us at corprelations@hsus.org; we are generally amenable to such requests.

In addition, we'd be happy to explore a business relationship with you. We often license our names and marks to for-profits, for example, and sometimes this includes permission to use specified content. To learn more, please contact our Business Development team at 202-452-1100 or corprelations@hsus.org.

The HSUS expressly reserves the right to rescind any reprint permission for any reason at any time.

Can I use photographs, artwork, videos, or other graphics from The HSUS' website?
We're sorry, but we do not allow the use or reproduction of graphic media from any of the websites we operate, unless The HSUS owns the media or unless such reproduction is specifically authorized on the web page where the graphics or video appear. We have this policy because we purchase works from numerous photographers and graphic designers for our electronic media, and, as a result, cannot legally grant permission to reproduce these works.

A credit line below an image or video will indicate if The HSUS owns that piece of media. If you would like to reprint an HSUS graphic or video, then please email us via the webmaster contact form link below. Please provide us with the URL where the work appears, and describe the intended use of the image. We will respond to your query as promptly as we can—within two weeks if at all possible. We are sorry that we cannot guarantee a faster response.
