The US Humane Society rates the work of the federal government, and this year’s C- was a disappointment. It’s important to realize that even progressive governments don’t necessarily see animal welfare as a progressive issue. Hence the ratings for the USHS shown below.
This is a reminder of how important it is to keep educating ourselves about the changes necessary to make the lives of animals more humane and fair. Because if we don’t speak out, the status quo and the powers-that-be are perfectly content with allowing issues of animal welfare to quietly melt into silence. We know better, so here’s what we need to know to take action. (Click on the image below.)
Thank you to Eric for sending me this information from the USHS.
