The name Zoe means life, which is such a fitting name for this cat who was saved at our recent rescue operation in Killeen, TX. ⠀ ⠀ Thanks to your support, Zoe is getting the care she so desperately needed, and we can’t wait to see her live the life she deserves. 💓Here’s something that may surprise you: Did you know US prairie dog populations have seen an alarming decline of more than 95%? These petite grassland critters are a keystone species that build strong family bonds and even form sophisticated languages.  With the threat of extinction becoming very real, join us as our Prairie Dog Coalition begins their 100-mile journey across the #GreatPlains to raise awareness while there’s still time left! #PDContheTransect  #Yellowstone #PrairieDogs #PlightOfPrairieDogs #FightForALLAnimalsDuring our rescue in Killeen, we found Alicia with three legs, one of which seems to have healed improperly from trauma.  Thanks to your support, she’ll be with us receiving the urgent care she needs before she finds a loving home through one of shelter and rescue partners.   Your lifesaving contribution to our EARF ensures we can reach animals like Alicia year-round.

But this species has been facing a “silent extinction”—unbeknownst to many, wild populations have declined by about 40% over the past few decades.   This #WorldGiraffeDay, join us in urging the U.S. to list the giraffe as Endangered under the Endangered Species Act using the link in our bio before it's too late. 💙🦒 #fightforALLanimalsWe're pretty lucky that EVERY day is take your dog to work day at HSUS!

Canada just passed legislation to finally put an end to its role in the gruesome shark fin trade. 🙌  Previously, Canada was the largest importer of shark fins outside of Asia, but that will end with this legislation. In fact, Canada will be the first country in the G20 with a shark fin trade ban, making Canada a global leader in protecting sharks. 💙🦈  #fightforALLanimalsBEHIND THE SCENES of our recent rescue operation in TX: These animals are now receiving the love and care they so desperately needed from the veterinary team at our temporary shelter.
