The Humane HEART

        Actions and Campaigns


        Introduction


The Humane HEART has been working to bring about change to benefit the welfare of those who have little or no voice of their own: animals, children, and those of advancing years.

Much has been done in past years, and the Humane HEART continues to work productively in its causes.

This year, the Humane HEART has addressed a number of situations that have arisen as "brush fires"; mostly in Louisiana, but also instances in California and Tennessee.

Below is a list of campaigns and actions. Each will have accompanying expansion as time permits.
