For more than a half-century, The HSUS has been fighting for the protection of all animals through advocacy, education and hands-on programs.

Founded by Madonna of the Mills Laura Flynn Amato, this Non-Profit Organization rescues puppymill dogs from breeding factories. All dogs are vetted, socialized, and adopted into permanent homes.
This not-for-profit advocacy group is dedicated to raising awareness about the cycle of cruelty associated with commercial breeding and to educate consumers about the pet shop/puppy mill chain of abuse. Comprised entirely of volunteers wishing to affect positive change for the dogs, initiatives include legislative campaigns to change laws, zoning endeavors and public awareness events geared toward educating the public.
