Our Dizzying Array of Animal Care Programs

通过 onJuly 17, 2015 1条评论 由韦恩·帕切尔

This week, The HSUS worked with law enforcement and both local and national groups in Chatham County, N.C. to rescue近200名动物,其中大部分来自一个流动的家。警长上尉道格斯图尔特把它称为一个“干预”等太多的情况下,我们看到,一发手的方式进行超越与动物来处理他们的人的手段。我们正在与合作伙伴一起,提供照顾和救济他们。

It’s just one manifestation of the hugely diverse and high-impact direct-care work the HSUS and its affiliates conduct on an ongoing basis.



Since the June 22Yulin dog meat festival——我在博客上写——气的成员na Animal Protection Power have rescued more than 1,000 dogs bound for slaughter in a series of dog truck interceptions on China’s highways involving days of tense negotiation with dog traders and police. Activists with CAPP say that all too often local police disregard the laws related to dog meat trade criminality. CAPP was set up with the help of Humane Society International to coordinate dog rescues.

The most recent dog truck interceptionsresulted在575只犬救援 - 379在天津下面活动家和狗肉交易员和秦皇岛195之间为期两天的对峙。狗经历了令人吃惊过度拥挤的条件下,CAPP,更让提供志工救生遮荫和水在谈判释放他们。狗的两组最终被卸载,但在任何一种情况是尽管没有要求检疫证明违反法例地方当局罚款的狗肉交易。将379个狗在天津获救现正处于一个强制性的为期28天的检疫期,但他们的命运依然难料,与活动家敦促当局狗释放给他们照顾,一旦检疫的时期已经过去。

“These dogs belong in loving homes with caring families – in fact, many of them were family pets before they were stolen,” said Adam Parascandola, HSI’s director of animal protection and crisis response, who was on the ground to assist with both rescue operations.. “Our priority is to secure the safe future of these dogs so they can be cared for and then adopted or reunited with their families when possible. We will continue to work with Chinese activists to put an end to this cruel industry that a growing number of people in China don’t support.”

Meanwhile, this week, HSIannouncedthat more than 11,000 dogs have been successfully sterilized and vaccinated since April 2013 by the Jamshedpur Communities Dog Population & Rabies Management Project, making a huge impact on greater Jamshedpur’s dog population and rabies management. Humane Society International and Animal Health Foundation launched this three-year project with support from the Jamshetji Tata Trust and JUSCO. “We’re well on our way to reaching goal of sterilizing and vaccinating 18,000 dogs in greater Jamshedpur,” said Andrew Rowan, my colleague and CEO of HSI. “Sterilizing this number of animals is no easy task but our dedicated team of veterinarians and animal welfare officers has stepped up to the challenge and has achieved wonderful results that will improve the welfare of both the street dogs and the people of Jamshedpur.”

而这仅仅是这么多的一个流浪狗projects we are conducting in multiple nations throughout the world. We have a massive project in the India’s Haryana province, and programs in波多黎各,Bhutan, the Philippines, and so many places where this hands-on program is critical.

In the U.S. , we also maintain the largest network of animal care centers, including the nation’s largest wildlife rehabilitation center (the South Florida Wildlife Center)和著名的Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch。We haverural veterinary teamsthat provide services on Native American reservations and our Pets for Life program provides services to thousands of animals and the people who care about them in underserved communities.

We lost a great booster of our wildlife rescue operations this week. The HSUS and走pher tortoiseslost a good friend with the passing of Marion Clifton ( M.C.) Davis, a passionate visionary for protecting all habitat but especially his beloved long leaf pine forest. He founded the 50,000-acre Nokuse plantation, and its E.O. Wilson Biophilia Education Center to help restore habitat, and his work included helping the HSUS rescue and rehome more than 4,300 imperiled gopher tortoises and hundreds of frogs, snakes and other burrow sharing species from properties scheduled for development . MC’s legacy will live on via all the people he has helped protect these imperiled species.

There’s a lot of talk of climate-change deniers in the world. But then there’s a small universe of “HSUS direct-care deniers” – especially lawmakers aligned with factory farms, puppy mills, horse slaughter and captive hunts. They diminish the millions of dollars we give to other organizations (including donations made through the Sparrow Fund to help wildlife rehabbers and vets who come across动物在极度痛苦,you can see some of the stories of the animals helped by the fundhere), but deny the significant of direct care work we conduct with our staff and volunteers even as the information exists right in front of them – a phenomenon I identified as the “backfire effect在”最近的一篇博客。

在美国慈善协会及其分支机构恰好能够带走一些在世界上最多样化和高影响力的动物保健方案,同时还提供改变游戏规则的宣传方案,引导公众舆论,法律和执法行动,并corporate policies in the U.S. and increasingly throughout the world. Our goal is to help millions and billions, but never to forget the one creature in need right now.
