I was delighted to be invited to present to the Humane Society of the United States on the work of CCA during my visit to Washington.
HSUS has a long and proud tradition of advocating for and protecting animals throughout the length and breadth of the US for over half a century.
I was able to explain the work of CCA throughout the world and the history of Animal Welfare in the Catholic Church to a room of senior HSUS staff and also by telephone link to their colleagues in Regional HSUS offices throughout the country and then take a Question and Answer session following my presentation. I was able to explain to HSUS colleagues how CCA plans to work more vigorously in the USA in the future based on the writings of Pope Francis in his Encyclical Letter, Laudato Si’.
I am looking forward to closer cooperation between CCA and HSUS in the months and years to come for the benefit of all animals both in the US and also further afield.
