What Sets HSI Apart
Active on nearly every continent, HSI is one of the few international animal protection organizations working to protect all animals—including animals in laboratories, farm animals, companion animals and wildlife.
We are deeply committed to extending our reach and to expanding our services and support to local organizations around the world.
