The largest beef recall in U.S. history occurred last month as a result of an undercover investigation by the Humane Society of the United States. The unfolding story has put the HSUS in the news more than usual lately, but their work for animal welfare and animal rights is always vigorous, even when not making headlines. The beef recall has made many people aware of the progressive activism of the HSUS. The organization has evolved to become a powerful advocate for animal rights and will only get better as more of us participate or contribute.
I encourage you to go to http://www.hsus.org/ and sign up for CEO Wayne Pacelle's blog. His writings will sometimes sadden you with stories of animal suffering, will sometimes renew your hope with success stories of HSUS campaigns, and will alert you to actions you can take on behalf of the animals.
