Porte makes shopping with a purpose easy. Through Porte’s #DoorToChange program, Porte members can select one charity to receive donations based on their everyday spending.³
With National Love Your Pet Day on February 20th, today we’re taking time to feature one of the charities participating in Porte’s #DoorToChange program: the Humane Society of the United States. As leaders in the fight for animal interests, the Humane Society of the United States fights all forms of animal cruelty to achieve the vision behind their name: a humane society.
Read on to learn more about who the Humane Society of the United States is, what they do, and how your everyday purchases can support their work.
Who is the Humane Society of the United States?
Since 1954, the Humane Society of the United States has been fighting for the protection of all animals through advocacy, education and hands-on programs. Today, they are the nation’s largest animal protection organization working to protect all animals through legislation, litigation, investigation, education, science, advocacy, and field work.
Their primary mission is to prevent animal cruelty before it occurs.
What does the Humane Society of the United States do?
Together with millions of supporters, the Humane Society of the United States takes on puppy mills, factory farms, the fur trade, trophy hunting, animal cosmetics testing, and other cruel industries. They rescue and care for thousands of animals every year through their Animal Rescue Team’s work and other hands-on animal care services.
Through the years, the Humane Society of the United States has achieved a powerful legacy of change for animals. Other leaders in the humane movement have ranked them as the most effective animal organization in the country.⁴
How can I support the Humane Society of the United States?
Supporting the Humane Society of the United States, or any other charity that we have partnered with, is easy with Porte’s #DoorToChange program. We made the process simple: when you buy or pay for something, we make a separate donation equal to a portion of the purchase price to your selected charity. It doesn’t cost you anything.
Follow these steps to start supporting a cause that matters to you:
- Log in to your Porte app.¹
- Select Support a cause that matters to you from the dashboard.
- Select the Humane Society of the United States (or another charity partner).
Although you can only support one charity at a time, you can change your selected charity as often as you like. You can also see an approximate amount generated from the Porte community for each cause in the #DoorToChange section in the Porte App.
