BENEFITING: Humane Society of The United States
In lieu of a traditional wedding gift, please consider making a donation to The Humane Society of the United States. Founded in 1954, The Humane Society of the United States celebrates animals and confronts cruelty—to all animals, not just dogs and cats. They take on the biggest transformational fights to stop large-scale cruelties, such as animal fighting, puppy mills, factory farming, and the wildlife trade. They work to pass anti-cruelty laws in every nation, end extreme confinement of farm animals in cages, stop cosmetic testing on animals, halt cruelty to wildlife, and transform the landscape for pets in poverty. They care for more than 100,000 animals each year, through our rescue teams, sanctuaries and wildlife centers, free veterinary care for low-income pet owners, and other life-saving programs. The HSUS is approved by the Better Business Bureau's Wise Giving Alliance for all 20 standards for charity accountability, and was named by Worth Magazine as one of the 10 most fiscally responsible charities.
