DOG FIGHTING
“Man’s best friend” may fight to the death in dogfights, often with tens of thousands of
dollars at stake. Dogfighters sometimes kill the losing dogs, and even winning dogs
may die from their wounds. Police often discover drugs, guns, and even murder in
connection with dogfights.  Organized, large-scale dogfighting operations have
declined in recent years, thanks in part to The HSUS' work against dogfighting.  
Street dogfighting, however, is on the rise in urban areas. Neighborhood pit bull
owners seeking status or bragging rights stage impromptu fights in back alleys or
basements. We are making inroads into street dogfighting, too.  All fighting dogs
suffer, whether in the pit or out. Although they are pack animals, an instinct to fight
other dogs is bred into these dogs so deeply that they mainly live isolated on chains
or locked in cages.  
In hog-dog fighting or “catch dog trials,” dogs chase trapped hogs in front of spectators.
Players rank the dogs by how quickly they bite into a hog’s face and pull the screaming
animal down. Dogs often injure the hogs horribly during the match, and the hogs may
gore the dogs with their tusks.
PUPPY MILLS
Can you imagine forcing your pet dog to live his or her entire life in a small wire cage
with no human companionship, toys, or comfort, and little hope of ever becoming part of
a family? That is what life is like for a puppy mill breeding dog. Help us stop this cycle of
cruelty that contributes to pet overpopulation and the suffering of countless dogs.
THE FUR TRADE - INCLUDING DOGS AND CATS
Buying fur or fur trim supports an industry that kills millions of domestic dogs and
cats each year—both on purpose and accidentally in traps. Although most dog and
cat victims of the fur trade are raised and killed in China and other parts of Asia, their
fur is exported for sale worldwide.  The United States already bans the sale of dog
and cat fur (prompted by an HSUS investigation), but recent investigations found that
dog fur is still slipping into the country on unlabeled and falsely advertised jackets.  
In the United States, traps set for wild animals like foxes and bobcats maim or kill
countless dogs and cats each year.
HORSE SLAUGHTER
Each year, tens of thousands of American horses—riding horses, carriage horses,
race horses, wild horses, and children’s ponies—are inhumanely transported and
slaughtered, their meat shipped to places like France, Italy, and Japan for human
consumption. Help us end horse slaughter.  Purchased by slaughterhouse middlemen
at auction, horses are shipped long distances in cramped trailers without food, water,
or rest. The majority of these horses are young, healthy animals who could go on to
lead productive lives with loving owners.  We have made ending the slaughter of
America's horses for human consumption one of our top priorities.
The Prevention of
Equine Cruelty Act
will ban the barbaric slaughter of American horses for human
consumption, including the export of live horses across our borders for slaughter.  Tell
Your Representative to Oppose Horse Slaughter .  The House of Representatives has
joined the Senate in introducing an anti-horse slaughter bill. Tell your Representative to
support the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act of 2011.

CHIMPS IN LABORATORY EXPERIMENTATION   Give 200 Chimps the Retirement They
Deserve
The National Institutes of Health has postponed an inhumane and fiscally irresponsible
government plan to transfer 186 chimpanzees from the Alamogordo Primate Facility in
New Mexico to a Texas laboratory while the National Academy of Sciences reviews the
government’s chimpanzee research policies.  The Humane Society of the United States is
pleased that NIH will keep the 186 chimpanzees free from harm while they conduct an
independent review of their policies. However, 14 of the original 202 Alamogordo
chimpanzees have already been moved to the Southwest National Primate Research
Center in Texas (an additional two chimpanzees have since died). All 200 of these
chimpanzees deserve permanent retirement from harmful research.

TAKE ACTION:  Please go to the link below and fill in and submit the form below to thank
the director of the National Institutes of Health, Francis Collins, for the transfer
postponement and to ask that he provide all 200 chimpanzees with the sanctuary they
deserve. Please remember to be polite and professional, and to personalize the subject
line and text below so your message stands out.  
Please Speak Your Word for the Chimps
SEAL PUP SLAUGHTER
Each year, hundreds of thousands of seals are clubbed and shot to death in Canada
for their fur. This annual commercial seal hunt is the largest slaughter of marine
mammals in the world. Join our ProtectSeals campaign in ending this cruel and
needless killing for good.
