The Humane Society of the United States
The HSUS seeks a humane and sustainable world for all animals—a world that will
also benefit people. They are America's mainstream force against cruelty, exploitation
and neglect, as well as the most trusted voice extolling the human-animal bond.
Their mission statement: Celebrating Animals, Confronting Cruelty.
Hundreds of thousands of dogs suffer in puppy mills in this country. The dogs
are prisoners of greed. They are locked in small cages. They freeze in the winter
and swelter in the summer. The dogs never get out of their prisons. They are
bred over and over again until they die.
The only way to free them from the misery of these horrid puppymills is to eliminate
the demand for puppies by refusing to buy a puppy in a pet store and boycotting
those pet stores that sell puppies. When people stop buying puppies in pet stores,
the puppy mills will go out of business and the misery will end. The state and
federal governments do not enforce the laws to protect the dogs. The commercial
breeders and brokers have huge well-funded lobbying efforts. Please join this
fight to free the prisoners of greed. The only person who is going to make a
difference for the dogs suffering in puppy mills is you. You, the people, can
free them from their puppy mill prisons.
The American Society for the Prevention and Cruelty to Animals
was founded in 1866 as the first humane organization in the Western Hemisphere.
The Society was formed to alleviate the injustices animals faced then, and we
continue to battle cruelty today. Whether it’s saving a pet who has been accidentally
poisoned, fighting to pass humane laws, rescuing animals from abuse or sharing
resources with shelters across the country, we work toward the day in which
no animal will live in pain or fear. Come and join them in the fight to end

PETS 911 believes that if you consolidate all the adoption, lost and found,
veterinarian/emergency clinic, fostering, volunteer, shelter/clinic, and health
and training information out there and give the public a single and easy place
to find this information; education will substantially increase and euthanasia
will decrease. That is their important mission.
