Humane Society

The Humane Society of the United States is the nation’s largest and most effective animal protection organization. We help animals by advocating for better laws to protect animals; conducting campaigns to reform industries; providing animal rescue and emergency response; investigating cases of animal cruelty; and caring for animals through our sanctuaries and wildlife rehabilitation centers, emergency shelters and clinics. 

National Law Enforcement Council

To step up its fight against all forms of illegal animal cruelty,
The HSUS has formed its first National Law Enforcement Council,
comprised of current and former law enforcement officers and
prosecutors from across the country. The council will assist
The HSUS in strengthening and better enforcing animal
protection laws.

Chosen For Leadership

Members of the national council were chosen for their
leadership in protecting animals from neglect, violence,
and other crimes.With a particular emphasis on animal
cruelty, fighting, and poaching laws, the council brings
together the best in the law enforcement field to help
combat animal crimes nationwide.

Member Activities

Member activities may include supporting state and federal
legislation that strengthens animal protection laws, promoting
animal protection training opportunities for local law
enforcement, and raising awareness of The HSUS’s animal
crimes rewards, tip lines, and other resources.

Join Forces

Ann Chynoweth, Senior Director of the Animal Cruelty and
Fighting Campaign for The HSUS, said, “We are honored to
join forces with our National Law Enforcement Council to
combat animal cruelty, fighting, and poaching crimes. By
fostering relationships across local, state, and federal
levels of law enforcement and prosecution, we can make
meaningful improvements to policies and actions that
protect animals across the country.”
