Humane Society Seeks Volunteers in the Faith Community

Promote Animal Protection in the Faith Community!  

 

The Humane Society of the United States’ Faith Outreach program engages faith communities in animal protection issues, on the premise that religious values call upon us to act in a kind and merciful way towards all creatures. The program offers ideas for community ministry through The Fill the Bowl Project, a pet food collection toolkit to help families with pets and animal shelters in need; Eating Mercifully, a compelling documentary on factory-farming issues, and Humane Backyard, projects for faith communities to celebrate nature and wildlife that God created. Seasonal resources include Compassionate Living for Lent and St. Francis Day in a Box. 

They seek volunteers to implement this important work nationwide.  Faith Outreach Volunteers will gain a deeper understanding of the intersection between religion and animal protection. They will help bring to light the moral issues of how our society treats animals while strengthening important skills such as networking, critical thinking, and community outreach. They will have the opportunity to work directly with local faith leaders, connect faith communities with HSUS resources and assist the HSUS state director on animal protection issues as needed.
