At the Humane Society of the United States, our goal is to create a world where people and animals thrive together. If you work or volunteer with animals—whether you’re a shelter staffer, rescue volunteer, animal services officer, community cat advocate, wildlife rehabber, cruelty investigator, equine protector or veterinary professional—we want to help you make that a vision a reality in your community.
