The Humane Society of the United States and the Fund for Animals Join Forces
Washington DC - Today, The Humane Society of the United States (The HSUS) and The Fund for Animals (The Fund) announced that they will join forces in an unprecedented and historic combination. This is the first time in the history of the animal protection movement that two national, high-profile organizations have united in order to advance their common mission.
The two organizations made this announcement exactly 50 years to the day that The HSUS began operations in Washington on November 22, 1954. Both organizations’ boards of directors, which will combine to operate as one, voted unanimously in a series of meetings over the last several months. The merger will formally occur on January 1, 2005.
