Doris Day, founder of the Doris Day Animal LeagueTwo of the nation’s strongest voices for animals are joining forces in a corporate merger that will strengthen the organizations’ efforts to protect animals. The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and the Doris Day Animal League (DDAL) announced last week that they will merge.

“The Humane Society of the United States is delighted to join with the Doris Day Animal League to create an even more powerful voice for animals,” said Wayne Pacelle, HSUS president and CEO. “I have been an admirer of Doris Day and her organization for many years, and it is a privilege now to be able to work so closely with her and the organization.”

Doris Day founded the DDAL in 1987 in an effort to support animal welfare legislation at all levels of government. While working to pass laws to regulate puppy sales and to eliminate animal testing for cosmetics, DDAL has also supported the Antifreeze Bittering Act to help prevent animals from being poisoned from ingesting antifreeze.

The DDAL has worked with the HSUS in the past on many issues, such as providing aid for Hurricane Katrina victims. “There is no other group like The Humane Society of the United States,” Day said. “We are very enthusiastic about being part of this organization and combining our resources to help the animals.”

I think it is great that Doris Day and the Humane Society will join together. I donate to both of them. They both do great work for the animals.
