The Humane Society of the United States fights the big fights to end suffering for all animals. They work to stop large-scale cruelties such as animal fighting, puppy mills, factory farming and the wildlife trade. Along with supporters and volunteers, they work to pass anti-cruelty laws, end the extreme confinement of farm animals in cages, stop cosmetics testing on animals, halt cruelty to wildlife and bring veterinary services to pets in underserved communities. More than 100,000 animals are cared for each year through rescue teams, sanctuaries and wildlife centers.
The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors. Its purpose is to protect life and health and to ensure respect for the human being. It promotes mutual understanding, friendship, cooperation and lasting peace amongst all peoples.
