Humane Society Information: For over a hundred years, The Humane Society has been a champion for the humane treatment of animals and a reliable source of information. Information about dogs, ownership, adoption, training, and more can be found on their website. They are staunch advocates for ending puppy mills, dogfighting, and other abusive dog actions.
The Humane Society website states the following. “Since 1877 the historic American Humane Association has been at the forefront of every major advancement in protecting children, pets and farm animals from abuse and neglect. Today we’re also leading the way in understanding human-animal interaction and its role in society.
As the nation’s voice for the protection of children and animals, American Humane Association reaches millions of people every day through groundbreaking research, education, training and services that span a wide network of organizations, agencies and businesses.”
The ASPCA is a good source to find that adorable dog that needs a loving home and is waiting to be adopted. Their site has the ability to search for adoptable dogs and dog breeds that lie within your zip code and the distance that you designate. They also have a Petfinder link that takes you to a listing of nationwide local animal shelters to assist you in your search for a dog to adopt.
The ASPCA website states the following. “The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) was the first humane society to be established in North America and is, today, one of the largest in the world. Our organization was founded by Henry Bergh in 1866 on the belief that animals are entitled to kind and respectful treatment at the hands of humans, and must be protected under the law.
Headquartered in New York City, the ASPCA maintains a strong local presence, and with programs that extend our anti-cruelty mission across the country, we are recognized as a national animal welfare organization. We are a privately funded 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, and proud to boast more than 1 million supporters across the country.”
