50 Ways You Can Help Animals 

From Wayne Pacelle, President and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, blog, A Humane Nation:

One of the questions I often get asked by supporters is, how can they get more involved with The HSUS and with the cause of animal protection? I want to offer some broad strokes on how advocates, including you, can help advance our cause.

There are many ways you can choose to help, such as adopting a pet, choosing products that not tested on animals, participating in Meatless Mondays, volunteering with The HSUS or with your local animal shelter or rescue, or writing letters to your editor on issues that affect animals. People who take these actions can become a powerful force in their communities, in the political arena, and in the marketplace. When lots of people join in, they can exert a tremendous, collective impact on the lives of animals.

I have one more request: as you look through this list, please also share it with family and friends interested in advocating for animal protection issues.
