The northernmost California State University, friendly people, great weather (if you like rain), gigantic redwoods ON CAMPUS, great hiking ON CAMPUS, we walk and bike everywhere... we're kind of a bubble here.
While HSUS began an animal welfare organization back in 1954, its current focus is toward legislation that severely impedes or eliminates domestic animals and animal ownership. HSUS disguises its political campaigns as attacks against “puppy mills,” animal cruelty, and “hoarding.”
HSUS claims that it only targets “puppy mill” breeders and not “ethical” breeders, but the definition of “ethical” provided by HSUS makes breeding of animals impossible.
HSUS defines “animal cruelty” in the broadest sense that essentially defines nearly *all* human contact and control over animals as cruel.
