Spotlight- Making a Difference- Humane Society

Tuesday, December 25, 2012
Merry Christmas from all of us at MFAMLG.

Today's spotlight will be on man's best friend(s) and the organization the Humane Society of the United States.

You will find these organization in every state, in most communities. They have passed the test for charitable organizations on the 'watchdog' sites I checked.

In their own words "We work around the country to support animal welfare legislation, fight animal cruelty in all forms, and engage citizens to promote the protection of animals. HSUS state directors work directly with residents and policy makers in their states."

You can give directly to the national organization by going to their website. You can also search for your local or state shelter and volunteer your time. 

Update: Reader Cindy sent this along to us: Money donated to the HSUS does not reach your local HS. It goes toward lobbying and fighting against factory farming, puppy mills, whaling, etc. All worthy causes but if you want to help locally you have to give locally. Especially to any shelters in your area that do not receive funds from state, county or towns.
