ICYMI: over the weekend @realdonaldtrump doubled down on his intervention on the issue of trophy hunting. The President is right to recognize that trophy hunting is a horror because it leaves unoffending animals injured and dead for no good reason. We should be their protectors, NOT their persecutors. We certainly hope that after consulting with @repryanzinke the President will direct @usinterior to maintain a strict ban on any imports of sport-hunted African elephant and lion trophies. #savetheelephants#stoptrophyhunting

This #WorldKindnessDay be like Almond & Bubby ⠀
Almond is the kind of pup that loves everyone she meets, but there is one little guy she's fallen head over heels for... Meet Bubby! Once abandoned in Central Park, this rescue guinea pig now enjoys spending his days sharing carrots and snuggling on the couch with his girlfriend, Almond. #interspeciesfriendship#loveislove#animalfriends

770 cats and dogs, and 3 pigs – that’s how many animals our Emergency Placement Partner, St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center, took into their loving arms after Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico.⠀
This National #AnimalShelterAppreciation Week, we want to say THANK YOU, @sthubertsanimal for your tireless efforts for animals locally and nationally! #shelterappreciationweek
Meet the tireless heroes of Angels of Assisi! This incredible shelter is located in Roanoke, VA but that does not stop them from helping animals globally! They have a hopping low-cost veterinary clinic that serves the community and a mobile clinic they deploy at a moment’s notice to help animals in need. Their adoption program sends a staggering number of homeless pets to safe and loving homes every year. This shelter partner is one to watch as they may soon take over the world in an effort to help animals and the people that love them. ⠀
Thank you @angelsofassisi for your dedication and hard work for animals in need! #animalshelterappreciation#shelterappreciationweek
When we asked our amazing friends at the Humane Society of Sarasota in FL if they wanted homeless dogs from Puerto Rico the answer was, "YES, PLEASE!" They couldn’t wait! The Sarasota team was waiting with open arms for 39 dogs to arrive. It's safe to say that their arms are no longer empty. The dogs will be ready for adoption just as soon as they get some TLC from staff.⠀
Thank you @humanesocietysrq for doing amazing things for animals locally and nationally. #animalshelterappreciation#shelterappreciationweek ⠀
This is HORRIFYING. Horse hooves and legs are being burned with chemicals and punctured with sharp objects to make them step higher so they can win a few ribbons. This causes so much pain, and it’s downright cruel. ⠀
Help stop this cruelty - Tell your representative it's time for this institutionalized cruelty to be abolished once and for all using the #linkinbio
It's National #AnimalShelterAppreciation Week! We have a LOT of shelter partners that do incredible things - and we are so grateful for each and every one of them!⠀
When we asked The Anti-Cruelty Society in IL if they had room for some hurricane victims the answer was an immediate “Yes! Send them!” From a behavioral helpline to advocating for pet-friendly housing, the Anti-Cruelty team is embedded in the Chicago community. Even with their large portfolio of local services, they are always there for follow shelters around the country that need assistance. ⠀
Thank you @anticruelty for your partnership and tireless work for the animals

Animal fighting is a sickening spectacle that The HSUS is working to end for good! Today, bipartisan lawmakers introduced legislation to close the loophole which allows the practice to continue in some parts of the US. Read more in the #linkinbio#fightforallanimals
Anti-wolf members of Congress are considering a misguided attempt to continue the assault against our wolves -- and we must act now to protect them. Speak up for wolves this #HowlAtTheMoonDay & let Senators on the Senate Interior Appropriations Committee know that it’s NOT okay to undermine the Endangered Species Act using the #linkinbio#savethewolves#protectwildlife
Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico over a month ago and efforts to rebuild are ongoing. Your support enables our ongoing efforts to help the animals and people.
To date, we have delivered more than 143,000 lbs. of humanitarian and animal aid, distributed food, water, and other essentials to pets and their humans, provided veterinary care to hundreds of animals from cats and dogs to horses and goats, and transported over 1,500 animals off the island to more than 50 shelters and rescues across the US.
In the months to come we will be focusing on spay and neuter, and strengthening the capacity for shelters to deal with incoming animals.
We’re inspired by the strength of the people of Puerto Rico, and thankful for your unwavering support.
