Humane Society Anniversary Day

Humane Society Anniversary Day is celebrated on November 22 in the United States. This is an important date to show compassion for animals and make the connection between humans and animals even stronger!


In 1954, a small animal welfare community was formed. This eventually grew into Humane Society International, which continues to fight against cruelty to animals. This holiday is not only celebrated in the US, but also in other countries as the organization works with international governments to raise awareness of animal issues and provide solutions. Humane Society International now has over 12 million members.
