by Amalia Rendic

The Humane Society of the United States
Mr. Davies trusts Mr. Labra with his dog because he knows Mr. Labra once organized a society for the protection of animals. The Humane Society of the United States is a national organization dedicated to the protection of animals. On this page of its Web site, you will find information about pet care, pet behavior, pet adoptions, and pet cruelty. After exploring this page, write a letter to Little Juan explaining how he can be a responsible pet owner.
