In 1954, the Humane Society of the United States was founded with borrowed money by a small group of people who wanted to protect animals, end slaughterhouse abuse and stop overbreeding.
A cockfighting raid in Andalusia led to the discovery of dead roosters and the arrest of nine people.
Laura Sesana's piece, "The King amendment to the farm bill threatens states' rights" (Web, Sept. 28) reads as if it were authored by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). It is clear in reading the column that many of the "facts" about my amendment come directly from the anti-meat organization. Ms. Sesana even links to their website.
There's a new dish that's been crafted in several Hill offices: the Congressional Omelet. It's a fairly simple recipe — scramble a bunch of eggs and mix them with a hefty helping of bureaucratic molasses.
The president of an organization leading the fight against cramped cages for pregnant pigs said Tuesday that he is seeking a spot on Tyson Food Inc.'s board of directors to put more pressure on the nation's second-largest pork processor to abandon the crates.
The movement by U.S. food corporations toward more humane treatment of animals experienced a whopper of a shift Wednesday when Burger King announced that all of its eggs and pork will come from cage-free chickens and pigs by 2017.
Who is Joseph Kony? Thanks to a 30-minute YouTube video that went viral, 78 million people (as of this writing) recently learned that he's the leader of the People's Liberation Army in Uganda and is an internationally wanted man for his role in child-soldier conscription. In other words, he's not a nice fellow.
Contrary to the premise of a recently published article ("Help a puppy, not a lobby," Commentary, Nov. 9), the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) operates life-saving programs that help animals in all 50 states and several dozen countries. Animal shelters are the backbone of the humane movement, and people should support them generously.
Earlier this month, Rep. James P. Moran united with a retired game-show host and a foreign-based animal rights group to introduce legislation that, if passed, would mean not just the end of our cotton-candy memories of the three-ring circus but also the elimination of hundreds of jobs in Mr. Moran's district and thousands more jobs around the country in numerous cities and states. This unnecessary and misguided legislation is being pushed in the name of an extreme animal rights agenda at the expense of jobs all over this country.
Despite the economic downturn, people are thankfully still giving to charity. Charitable giving rose 2 percent last year. The bad news is that donations to animal charities remained flat. Especially in these difficult times, donors are rightfully concerned about how to get the most bang for their buck. Having worked in the national animal welfare arena for more than 30 years, I've learned the best way to help animals is to avoid the slick national TV appeals for money and to give to local pet shelters.
