Humane Society Logo
Lately, thanks to cable, I've been watching Animal Planet...a lot. I heart a good animal story. Somewhere along the line, during my animal obsession (and thoughts of a pet), I came across the Humane Society's logo and I love it! Regular readers, can you guess why? Yup, the silhouettes, and keep reading below to find out why, of course, I'd have to love it. But first, a little more on the good work The Humane Society does, from their website:
"The Humane Society of the United States is the nation's largest and most effective animal protection organization—backed by 10 million Americans, or one in every 30. Established in 1954, The HSUS seeks a humane and sustainable world for all animals—a world that will also benefit people. We are America's mainstream force against cruelty, exploitation and neglect, as well as the most trusted voice extolling the human-animal bond. Our mission statement: Celebrating Animals, Confronting Cruelty."
